physics, astronomy, astronautics, astrophysics and aerospace engineering will
tell, as women and as professionals, and we are proud to
support and listen to these women.
An intense three days that will take place mainly at the prestigious
Marconi Theater in Abano Terme.

“However, ‘Women Among the Stars’ was born not only as an event but is an association
nata dal desiderio di illustrare le meraviglie del cosmo al grande pubblico
through the voices of female astronauts, astrophysicists, aerospace engineers and
researchers, to make women protagonists by emphasising their commitment and
results in the scientific field, where it is still clearly prevalent
the male presence.
The aim of the association is to stimulate young people, especially girls, to
choose STEM subjects in their studies and does so by organising
travelling symposia throughout the country and with the collaboration of the most
important research centres worldwide (ASI Italian Space Agency,

ESA European Space Agency, NASA National Aeronautics Space
