University of Padova

Padova, Italy, 2013-present.

The University of Padova is a key collaborator on OpenPTrack. Two of the University's researchers, Matteo Munaro and Filippo Basso, serve as the project's Lead Developer and Developer respectively.

The University of Padova is one of Europe’s oldest and most prestigious seats of learning. Established in 1222, the University grew to become a home to figures who have changed the cultural and scientific history of humanity, including Copernicus and Galileo. Padova vaunts the world’s first university botanical garden and a permanent anatomical theatre, which was built by Girolamo Fabrici d’Acquapendente. William Harvey, famous for describing the circulation of blood, studied in Padova, as did Elena Lucrezia Cornaro Piscopia, who, in 1678, became the first woman in the world to be awarded a university degree. It is a multidisciplinary university that aims to provide its students with both professional training and a solid cultural background.
