INTRODUCTION

Astronomy has been tought in Padova since the XIV century . From Pietro d'Abano through Regiomontano and Moletti up to Galileo Galilei who, in the early years of 1600, gave birth to modern science with his revolutionary observations.
Today, after the institution in 1968 of the first degree course of Astronomy in Italy, the tradition goes on in Padova and Asiago.
The Department of Astronomy in Padova is the main site for teaching and research activities, while Asiago is dedicated to practical laboratories and night observation with the 122-cm telescope Galileo.

The Department works in close collaboration with the nearby Astronomical Observatory of Padova and is part of the Center of Studies and activities for Space "G. Colombo" (CISAS) of the University of Padova.
