Astronomy and tourism in San Vigilio di Marebbe
Park of Stars

Currently the latest idea set up to promote the Fanes Senes and Braies nature park: obtaining an IDA certification for San Vigilio di Marebbe and its nature park, the first in Italy and one of the first in Europe - Dark Sky Park, namely ‘park of the stars’.

It is a certification which, first and foremost, requires that all professional and amateur astronomic observation conditions are respected for both day and night time skies and that, at the same time, artificial light pollution is drastically reduced to close to zero within the areas obtaining certification.

It is a further safeguard which the nature park’s vast high plateaus and minimally settled terraces make it especially suitable for and the area will happily comply with these conditions to add this feature to the many which already make it special.
