Australian Astronomy Greg Quicke let us know he was coming to Italy this month, so we have organised a number of introduction meetings for him to be able to meet with Astronomers in Italy and share their astronomical knowledge, passion and experience.

One of these meetings was with Professor Paolo Candy, one of Italys most recognised Astronomers.  Professor Candy has an Observatory / Planetarium located at the magnificent BioResort, Parco dei Cimini.

After their initial meeting and their passion and energy we decided it would be a great opportunity to create an event where we'd be able to share this unique opportunity of having Astronomers from different hemispheres talking about their unique histories and experiences.

Because Professor Candy's Observatory / Planetarium is located at Parco dei Cimini and the Chef and restaurant team at this Resort is well known for their use of local, organic product to produce unique, delicious cuisine, we've created a very special event:

An evening of Astronomy and Gastronomy!!

The event will start at 18:30 with an introduction from Professor Candy about his work and the Cimini Observatory / Planetarium, if the evening is clear you'll get to gaze into the stars and he'll share his knowledge of the universe, if clouds spoil our view Professor Candy will share some of his recent views of the universe in the Planetarium and show you some of the amazing footage and photos he's captured over the years.

Then Greg Quicke, our Australian Astronomer will share information about his work in Broome, Western Australia with his company AstroTours who provide unique Astronomy Tours in the north west of Western Australia.  Greg will also give us an overview of his new book "Earth turning Consciousness - An exercise in planetary awareness".

Around 20:00 we'll make our way into the Parco dei Cimini where we'll experience a four course gastronomic meal all prepared with local, organic product.
