Italian Society for the History of Physics and Astronomy
SISFA promotes the studies in the History of Physics and Astronomy, working for the recognition of their specificity and relevance. It committed itself to research, projects and publications aimed at enhancing the role of the History of Physics and Astronomy in the teaching of science and in the training of schoolteachers.
Safeguarding, enhancement and public enjoyment of the huge historical and scientific heritage that survives in the Physics Departments, in the Astronomical Observatories and in various other places are among the objectives pursued. Along with the scientific instruments, the recovery action has also involved various historical archives and book collections.
