After such a long planning, our absolutely amazing days in Italy were extremely rewarding! Just look at this great bunch of people and their smiles, as they stand 1400 meters below the rock at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory:

This event, a collaboration between IAPS and the Italian Association of Physics Students (AISF), was an overwhelming success: as organisers, we can say that everything went very smoothly; as participants, we are happy to say that it was a unique experience, extremely educational and fascinating.
Both our visits in Frascati (near Rome) and close to the Gran Sasso Mountain were extremely successful, with many talks given by researchers about superconductivity, laser physics, magnetic confinement fusion, neutrinos, beta-beta decays and dark matter. You can find some pictures and short descriptions of the programme at this link.
The organising committee, composed of Francesco Sciortino and Deividas Sabonis, would like to take the opportunity to thank the IAPS and AISF collaborators, in particular Matthias Zimmermann, Andreea Monteanu, Leon Jurčić and Lucio Maria Milanese. Many thanks also to Dr. Pace (ENEA Frascati) for so kindly welcoming us, and to Prof. Testa, ENEA President, for his financial support.
Our warmest thanks go to the Gran Sasso researchers, who showed the best of their world-class research and a clear interest in sharing their passion with students: Stefano Ragazzi, Eugenio Coccia, Massimo Mannarelli, Alba Formicola, Fausto Chiarizia, Natalia Di Marco, Roberto Aloisio, Matteo Lorenzini, Giulia Pagliaroli, Matthias Junker and all our tour visits and speakers.
