A Different sky

Here the sky is different. It 's different in the daytime, because it's clean and pure, it is far from the smog of the city in a pristine landscape. In OltrePò there is even the only point in Lombardy where, if the weather is fine, you can also catch a glimpse of the sea.
It 's different at night, because in the high hill there is one of the lowest levels of light pollution in Italy. This favorable condition makes you see the stars as you've never seen, just with the naked eye.
Or ... take advantage of the occasion with a little help of latest technology. In fact, not surprisingly, here arose the Astronomical Observatory Cà del Monte, a cutting-edge instrumentation with modern mobile - giant binoculars and telescopes - and an outdoor theater that is home to 200 seats for astronomical and cultural events. The arch structure of the Observatory is harmoniously inserted in the hills of Cecima in order to integrate into the landscape without spoiling. The central dome (diameter 7.5 m) includes 50 seats and houses, a digital planetarium, a great tool for the knowledge of heaven and to experience firsthand distances. An astronomical phenomena thanks to simulations that are projected. In addition, thanks to the screen on the wall, the room can also be used as a conference room.
