The Alphabet of the Stars. Gianbattista Vittorioso, his piece of sky

The sky has always been a source of inspiration for poets, scientists and lovers, interpreters of a reality that belongs to the whole of humanity and to everyone's heart: the cosmos.

No stars are seen tonight in the sky over Prater, in Vienna. It's August. "That" night was a night at the end of May. I was not there. My father told me about it. Ever since I was a child. And that time we saw them together in Madrid. Stars seen and stars told of. The stars you dream of. The stars chased on a bicycle and almost touched in the height of the Dolomite nights. The stars between Vesuvius and the sea. One hundred and fifty stars and starfish. The trail of a shooting star seen through the eyes of a girl, which now illuminates the sky and the streets of Rome. And of every city.

Neapolitan, born in 1978. Manager at Leonardo. Lover of Inter, of the bicycle, of Francesco De Gregori and Vasco Brondi

Museums System

They were born out of the awareness that a large part of the industrial culture of our time is not only produced by the great cultural and educational institutions, but is also formed within companies. Living, dynamic structures, corporate museums represent a point of reference for communities and territories, centres of industrial culture open to visitors, researchers, students, economic and cultural operators.
