The aim of the project is the identification of fossil remnants of the Galactic bulge formation epoch, through the detailed study of stellar systems with properties similar to those of Terzan 5. To this end, the researcher will analyze both photometric and spectroscopic data acquired by the stellar group of the Physics and Astronomy Department and INAF-Astronomical Observatory of Bologna at the major ground-based facilities (VLT, Keck. GEMINI) and from space (HST).
