  • Back on the radio
    Last week I was back to the recording studio of Onde Quadre, the web radio of Politecnico di Torino, in the program Seeking Seekers. We spoke about the mission to Antarctica, the DemoGRAPE project, the research activities of the NavSAS group and many other curiosities. You can download the podcast (in Italian) at this […]

The project


We are part of the XXXI Italian expedition in Antartica, fully supported by PRNA (Programma Nazionale di Ricerche in Antartide), the Italian Antarctic research program.
