Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi visited the lab to acknowledge the more than forty years of cooperation between the U.S. Department of Energy Lab and scientists from Italy.
Renzi got a tour of the industrial center building and met with many Fermilab officials.
“It celebrates the 40 years of history of Italian involvement at Fermilab and the joint efforts in particle physics, as well as what we see as the next era, where the U.S. and Italy will be joining forces in a number of new projects involving accelerators and neutrino projects here and around the world,” said Tim Meyer, Chief Operating Officer at Fermilab.
Italy is Fermilab’s strongest foreign partner, with the largest number of collaborators, students and staff members of any nation outside of the U.S.
