“Everything started from the sky,” a day of eco-trekking and astronomy in Monte San Giovanni in Sabina

August 30, 2022 @ 16:30 - 23:30 UTC+1


Kicking off on Tuesday, August 30, 2022, “Everything Started from the Sky,” the territorial promotion event to raise awareness of respect for nature and the issue of light pollution, organized by Open Sky under the patronage of the Lazio Region and the Municipality of Rieti. The intent is to make people experience environmental and cultural awareness in a joyful way, in an evocative and little-known area where sports, food, music and science, come together, respecting nature.

Activities will begin at 4:30 p.m. with a welcome for participants and a moment of internalization led by meditation teacher Neeraja, followed by the first eco-trekking event by environmental hiking guide Mauro Cappelletti. The route includes a walk within everyone’s reach of about an hour and a half (including the return), through a trail of great naturalistic value. For those who prefer it, they can choose a shorter route on their own along nearby trails. Hikers are asked to bring gloves and bags to collect any trash encountered on the walk. After returning from the walk, participants will be explained the route, what eco-trekking is, hiker ethics and how to limit the environmental impact of a hike.

From 7 p.m. experts from the association Astronomitaly (National Network of Astronomical Tourism, which certifies the ideal locations for astroturism and the most beautiful skies in Italy, where you can stargaze and stay), will explain the issue of light pollution.

From 8 p.m. there will be dinner, where a tasting will be served (advance reservation required) of the typical “fregnacce alla sabinese,” homemade pasta served with tomato sauce and olives, a characteristic dish of Sabina. But for those who prefer a picnic dinner, the spacious lawns in front are available to participants.

From 9 p.m. candle light concert with master guitarist and composer Fausto Ciotti. A live west coast country blues show featuring the songs of great artists including James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Eagles.

This will be followed by the most iconic event of the whole event, “Everything started from the sky,” where the audience will be able to participate in a real astronomical observation. Astronomers will provide their powerful telescopes, helping participants discover planets and constellations. The public will be able to freely participate in all activities or choose only some of them.

Throughout the course of the event, there will be a booth of a local organic farm, established more than 20 years ago in a completely unspoiled environment surrounded by mountain ranges, ancient villages and waterways. It will offer handcrafted products created from the use of a prized organic mountain lavender, grown at an altitude of 900 meters.

Open Sky is a nonprofit association, established to support projects that aim to create harmony between man and nature. All of Open Sky’s projects aim to create harmony, where it is most needed: on the outside, but also, and above all, on the inside.
