Description
The year 2013 is the centennial of the birth of Bruno Pontecorvo, one of the great physicists of the past century and a pioneer of High Energy Physics.

To honor his memory as a man and scientist, the Physics Department of University of Rome "La Sapienza", is organizing an International Meeting on Sept. 11 and 12, 2013.
Bruno Pontecorvo's life has been characterized by the strength of his ground-breaking scientific ideas as well as by his ideological choices, sometimes dramatic, which have marked his destiny as man and scientist. The meeting is a right and proper homage to the memory of the youngest "ragazzo di Via Panisperna", a moment of encounter and thought on his ingenious scientific ideas and a token of his civil commitment.
