Extremely Large Telescope: the giants gets up

After finishing site works at Cerro Armazones and after completing the road to reach it, on May 26, ESO laid the first stone of the Extremely Large Telescope. After signing contracts for dome and telescope mechanics with Astaldi / Cimolai and optics with Schott, this was the last formal step for starting the real construction.
Now we do not go back anymore: the biggest telescope adventure of the earth has really begun. In my presentation I will illustrate the project and the scientific cases that generated it, describing the difficulties and the expectations.
