Steno Ferluga, who will give a talk about Hack's career and life, was a pupil of Margherita Hack and then became a coworker of hers as well as a personal friend. He now teaches Environmental Physics at the University of Udine. On June 29, 2013, Margherita Hack passed away at the age of 91. Hack was an eminent astrophysicist, as well as a popular science writer, very well known in Italy and abroad for her professional achievements but also for her personal choices and opinions. A staunch vegetarian and a convinced atheist, Hack directed the Trieste Astronomical Observatory from 1964 to 1987.
To pay homage to this outstanding figure, the Istituto - in collaboration with ARPICO - has organized an evening with prof. Steno Ferluga.
