Technologies for cultural heritage: Italian project for the safeguarding the Aurelian Walls in Rome

Hi-tech sensors to monitor the effects of smog and traffic on the Aurelian Walls, laser surveys for the restoration of Palazzo Chigi in Ariccia. These are just few of the activities foreseen by the project ADAMO for the conservation and restoration of the cultural heritage of the Rome area. The project, coordinated by ENEA and funded by the Regione Lazio, is part of the new Technological District for Cultural Assets and Activities (DTC).

Energy: A step forward to DTT, the international fusion research center in Italy

A new step forward in the creation of the scientific-technological hub on nuclear fusion among the most advanced in the world. With the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding committing the Lazio region encompassing Rome to grant a contribution of 25 million euro, in fact, the foundations were laid for the operational start-up at the ENEA Research Center in Frascati of the DTT experiment (Divertor Tokamak Test ) foreseeing a total of 500 million euro of public and private investments, the involvement of over 1500 highly specialized workers and significant repercussions at the local and national level.

Energy: Japan, “heart” of the JT-60SA fusion reactor assembled with Italian-made technology

The assembly of the toroidal magnetic system of the JT-60SA fusion experimental reactor, the 'heart' of the plant, was completed in Japan thanks to the supply of 20 high-tech coils, of which 10 were manufactured in Italy. The announcement was made today during an event at the ENEA Headquarters in Rome, in which the Italian technological contribution to this new generation of nuclear fusion machines, expecting the first plasma in 2020, was illustrated in detail.
