The Locations of Bergamo Science Festival in 360˚


Bergamo Science is a festival of scientific journalism that is held every year in the month of October and involves a large part of the city of Bergamo and other places.

  • It is easy to see the 360° Photographs, simply click on the image miniature (thumb).

The goal is to bring science “to the streets” and make it usable, at no cost, especially to youth and in the schools. The event is continuously growing in audience and in importance and is enhanced by 10 conferences held by Italian and international speakers: Nobel Prize Winners, and high profile scientists and researchers. And then…hundreds of events, exhibits, laboratories and shows, all distributed over ten venues in the city and neighboring towns.

The 360°Images are aimed at allowing a virtual tour of the main locations of the festival and to present the important events and activities. Following are only a few of the 360° Images created over the last two years of the event. To see all of the images published and to delve deeper we send you back to the website BergamoScienza.
