Gran Sasso d'Italia

(grän säs`sō dētä`lyä), mountain group of the central Apennines, in Abruzzi, central Italy. It rises to c.9,560 ft (2,914 m) in Monte Corno, the highest peak in the Apennines. Campo Imperatore, a mountaineering and skiing resort, may be reached by cable car. Mussolini was confined there after his fall from power but was rescued by German paratroopers.

The new experiment at the Gran Sasso laboratory, using a neutrino beam from CERN in Switzerland, 720 km (450 miles) away, was held to check findings in September by a team of scientists which were greeted with some scepticism.
The CERN research institute near Geneva said measurements over three years had shown neutrinos pumped to a receiver in Gran Sasso, Italy, had arrived 60 nanoseconds sooner than light would have done -- a tiny difference that could nonetheless undermine Albert Einstein's 1905 special theory of relativity.
Their new results, announced April 14 at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy, where the XENON experiment is housed deep beneath a mountain 70 miles west of Rome, represent the highest-sensitivity search for dark matter yet, with background noise 100 times lower than competing efforts.
