A masterclass for a group of 15 selected Italian high-school students took place from October 15th to 19th. The students attend the 4th year at “Liceo Classico Statale Cagnazzi” in Altamura, a nice and quiet town at 50 km from Bari. The week spent at CERN was part of a three-week long stage, funded by the Ministry of Education, University and Research, with the aim of introducing some selected students to the world of fundamental physics and in particular to nuclear and sub-nuclear research activities.
