LIGHT – 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. LIGHT is conceived as a “cultural transformation event”, based on the edutainment concept. 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 fourth edition and the theme of this year is “Real Science and TV Fictions”. LIGHT’11 will take place in Roma, Palermo, Benevento, Rende (CS) from 5p.m to 2 a.m. on 23 September.
