The philosophy of the new Planetarium of Rome and the Astronomical Museum, which has been presented at numerous national and international conferences, works according to the most recent scientific directives, moving attention from the technical explanation of phenomena to the emotion generated by contact with nature and with the unknown, a powerful intellectual “fusing” for any experience and understanding.
The complex which houses the museum was designed by the architects Aschieri, Bernardini, Pascoletti and Peressutti, who won one of the public competitions for the most outstanding buildings at the Universal Exhibition of Rome in 1942.
Among the designers, Pietro Aschieri was pre-eminent, and in the creation of a majestic and magniloquent structure, was able fully to express his ideas, inspired by a classicism mixed with scenography.
To discover the third dimension in space. A jump into the deep to the limits of the known universe.
