About the "Ettore Majorana" Center

The "Ettore Majorana" Foundation and International Centre for Scientific Culture is named after an outstanding Italian physicist who was born in Sicily in 1906. The 45-year-old Centre of Erice hosts several workshops each year covering different scientific disciplines (e.g. physics, medicine, chemistry, life sciences etc.) with hundreds of scientists participating. Since its’ founding, this centre has represented an important meeting place for scientists from all over the world. Embracing 118 schools, covering all branches of science, the Centre is situated in the old pre-medieval city of Erice where three restored monasteries provide an appropriate setting for high intellectual endeavour.
