“LIGHT’10 – Turn on the light of science” is an initiative funded by EU – Marie Curie Action, Researchers’ Night. The event aims to bring science and technology closer to the public at large and to the youngsters in particular, through attractions and new imagines of researchers, ordinary people who achieve extraordinary results. Therefore, Light’10 is conceived as a “cultural change event”. Hands-on activities, demonstrations, dialogue with researchers and a general sense of festivity bring visitors to understand science and technology, its practical uses and theoretical bases, and encourage young people to embark on scientific careers. Light is at its third edition; the theme of this year is “Science Fiction becomes Science Reality”. Light’10 will take place at Planetarium, Rome-EUR, on 24 September from 5p.m. to 1 a.m
