Iano Astronomic Observatory
Set in the lush countryside around the village of Iano near Scandiano, the observatory was opened in 1995 by the Scandiano Association of Astronomical Physics.

Every year, the observatory organises introductory courses in astronomy for high school students and teachers (accredited by the Ministry of Education as professional education), as well as science-based conferences and evenings of guided star gazing.
