The Planetary of Lecco
The Planetary of Lecco – definitely one of the best highlights in town, thanks to its 62 seats this Planetarium is probably one of the largest in all Italy.
Open in 2004 it consists of a conference room, a library, a special section showing rare astronomical tools and a 8 m long dome as well. This last one usually hosts some accurate projections of the celestial sphere: up to 3200 celestial bodies, eclipses, supernova explosions as well as transition comets. They all let you feel like the most brave astronaut ever existed.
From Monday to Friday, every morning, opening reserved for schools (by reservation)
- Friday: 9.00 pm (for the initiatives included in the program)
- Sunday: screening at 4.00 pm
The Planetarium dedicates the first and third Saturday of the month to children.
The two afternoon screenings, at 3 and 4.30 pm, are recommended for children aged 3 to 7.
The Planetarium is closed on Christmas, Easter and the entire month of August.
Both the dome and the conference room are open on different days and times for special initiatives (Valentine’s Day, Yuri’s Night, on the occasion of extraordinary astronomical phenomena and for all the proposals that do not fall on the Friday of the Planetarium, for which you can consult the program and the news of the site).
