TNPI2017 - XVI Conference on Theoretical Nuclear Physics in Italy




The aim of this Conference is to bring together Italian theorists working in various fields of nuclear physics and related areas  to discuss their latest results and confront their points of view in a lively and informal way. This offers the opportunity to stimulate new ideas and to promote collaborations between different research groups.
The meeting will be held at the Palazzone, an elegant Renaissance Villa, commissioned by the Cardinal Silvio Passerini (1469-1529), Bishop of Cortona, and presently owned by the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa.
