Public outreach event in Southern Tuscany by

On September 20, 2014, took part in the “Notte della Cultura” (Night of Culture) event in Grosseto, the main town in Southern Tuscany, with the installation of a “light pollution simulator” in a cafe in the centre of the city.

The model provides a schematic reproduction of a road crossing, a starry sky, and lights which can be fitted with different fixtures simulating the effect of dimming, cut-off, and providing a basis for discussion of other impacts of light pollution.

The event is part of the public outreach activities maintained by the BuioMetria Partecipativa project in Italy.
