Italian Space Agency

The Agency

The Italian Space Agency, which was born in 1988, is a national public body supervised by the Ministry of Education, University and Research that cooperates with several other departments.
In less than two decades it established itself as one of the most important global stakeholders on the scene of space science, satellite technologies and development of means to reach and explore the cosmos.
Today the Italian Space Agency plays a leading role both at a European level, where Italy is the third major contributor to the European Space Agency, and at a global level.
In fact, it has a close and constant working relationship with the NASA, which has led the Italian Space Agency to take part in some of the most interesting scientific missions in recent years. One of the most fascinating projects was the building and entering into service of the International Space Station, where Italian astronauts are by now at home.
