Acqua alle Funi
Water to the Ropes
the GSA online journal

Summer 1999

"Acqua alle Funi" is an online journal intended to entertain news and views relevant one way or another to the Fermilab graduate student community. The GSA hopes to receive attention and contributions from the Lab community and particularly from the young high energy physics people.
The first Acqua alle Funi legend dates to 1586 at the erection of the Obelisk in Saint Peter's Square.
"Acqua all Funi" was used as a rallying cry by some of the constructors of the Fermilab accelerator during the moments that preceded its successful operation in 1972. In 1978 a metal sculpture by Fermilab Director R. R. Wilson was erected in the reflecting pond in front of the Wilson Hall. It is a hyperbolic obelisk named "Acqua alle Funi."
