Conference Hall

March 2, 2015

Here is the “Sala dei portici” at Palazzo Franchetti, where the conference will take place.It is the ground floor of a beautiful, historical palace on the Grand Canal. Carlo Rubbia (not shown in the pic) has just arrived and will talk first – he already took place in the front row, jokingly claiming he deserves it as he is life senator of the republic. I think we all agree he deserves it for his enormous contributions to XXth – and also XXIst – century physics, rather than for being the recipient of that award !

BTW I just learned that Rubbia has over 50 slides for his 30′ talk – it will put my stenographic capabilities to the test!
