Impronte Politecniche – Amalia Ercoli Finzi

“Orbital mechanics is a bit of a dance and when I look at the stars I imagine that everything moves in harmony, there is precisely the music of the orbits that drags me and takes me there”.

Amalia Ercoli Finzi, 86 years, honorary professor of space flight mechanics at the Politecnico di Milano, retraces her professional and personal journey in dialogue with professor Michèle Lavagna, a former student of hers: “Amalia Ercoli Finzi has always been a point of reference for many students, a strong point and source of energy. The enthusiasm and joy that she transmits is a precious gift that I have enjoyed by seeing her.”
