Sights of Experimental Gravity

Conference paper


The current status of experimental gravitational physics in Italy is very good. As I write this introduction, two advanced detectors of gravitational waves, NAUTILUS and AURIGA, located at laboratories of Frascati and Legnaro respectively, are monitoring the strongest sources in our galaxy and in the local Group. Together with the EXPLORER detector at CERN, operated by the Rome group, they form an Italian network of detectors operating in tandem, which is the heart of the recently formed International Gravitational Event Collaboration, including two more detectors, one in the USA and another in Australia.
