The UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres offers support and warmest thoughts to staff at Cittą della Scienza following fire
One of Europe's largest and pioneering science engagement institutions, Fondazione IDIS-Cittą della Scienza, in Naples, Italy was destroyed by fire on Monday evening, 4 March 2013. This sad and shocking event marks a significant loss to Europe's science engagement field.
The UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres offers its support to all the staff at this hugely difficult time. Cittą della Scienza is a pioneering and vibrant member of the international science centre world, and a founding member of Ecsite. ASDC and many UK centres have worked closely with the team in Naples for the EU Time for Nano Project and other national and regional projects and know they have a strong and excellent team.
Dr Penny fidler, CEO of ASDC said "The Science and Discovery Centres and Museums across the UK want the all staff at Cittą della Scienza to know that we stand with you at this difficult time and send our warmest wishes, support and friendship."
The beautifully modern Cittą della Scienza converted an 18th century factory in a former industrial seaside district of Naples into a place of interactive scientific enchantment and curiosity for its visitors and has inspired visitors in many ways, for many years. Some more details are below.
