Just on to end of the last millennium, in the suburb of Coloti a very ambitious project has taken shape, the realisation of an Astronomic Observatory destined to the automatic operation, that through the Robotic Infrared Telescope from 80 cm, observe the sky every night storing precious information. The observatory is part of a vaster program, that involves the University of Perugia and the National Program of Searches in Antarctica. The studies effected from the Coloti Observatory, must in fact analyse information to make then available for the project that foresees the construction of a scientific base and an astronomic observatory at Dome C, on the glacial cap in Antarctica.

The observatory of Coloti exploits conditions of ideal brightness to turn the look toward the sky, and offers to the amateurs and the less experts the opportunity to visit the structure and to also have a look through the telescope. During the schedules in which is open to the visits it can welcome groups of visitors, to which is reserved an unprecedented experience, dreaming at open eyes with the nose turned up.
