My name is Alessandro Marchetti and I am the founder of Astrophototour, I have been passionate about astronomy since I was a child and in ’95 I started working as a volunteer at the observatory and planetarium of the Persicetani Astronomy Group, based in the province of Bologna, in northern Italy.

Over the years I have multiplied my knowledge of astronomy and still today I always have something new to discover and learn.

In these years I have had the pleasure of sharing this wonderful science with…

The transparency of the sky, the quality of the air and a strategic geographical location close to the Tropic of Cancer make Tenerife one of the most suitable places in the world for astronomical observation. This is witnessed by both astronomical tourists and expert scientists, who have found on the peaks of Tenerife the ideal enclave to admire the celestial vault. There is a reason why in the Teide National Park there is the Observatory and the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands, which has the collaboration of 19 countries and is equipped with the latest technologies for the optimal study of the sky. The observatories are located 2,400 meters above sea level, where the unique sea of ​​clouds generates a natural layer that protects them from light pollution from the coast and the atmosphere is clean and calm.
