Trieste 2020 Science Greeters: young people lead the discovery of the scientific, historical and cultural development of Trieste

Trieste 2020 Science Greeters, a project by Fondazione Pietro Pittini, aims at providing tourists, scientists and citizens who will be in Trieste for the ESOF conference and the Science in the City Festival, with trained guides to help them discover among the most interesting locations of the city.

The Fondazione Pittini, in partnership with Trieste International Foundation for Progress and Freedom of Sciences and the University of Trieste, has trained and coordinated a group of students both from the university and the local secondary schools. This team, which has already been trained with the help of educators, historians and tourist guides, will be in charge of creating guided itineraries and online multimedia content, which will then be made available to the public.
At the end of August and the beginning of September, if the state of pandemic will allow, the visits will be offered live to the citizens.
