By Alessandro Bilotta, Dario Grillotti

The graphic novel has wonderful paintings and the story of Volterra’s life is increbible and worth to be known by every italian, mainly not for his mathematical achievements that are of a superior nature, but especially for being only one of the 12 universitary professors not following the Fascism. He was also the founder of the CNR. Probably something is missing in the overall historical vision that gives for granted the knowledge of several people and facts.

Reading the history of Galileo’s abjure should be done in all schools. Regardless the fact Galileo was right, the worst aspect of the episode was the killing of the freedom thinking. Galileo taught us Science and Faith can live together but it is important to understand their boundaries. Even today the Big Bang and the theory of evolution are accepted by the Pope (Francesco) contrary to many common people advocating for a stupid creationism and denying facts (the global warming is a more recent example of people myopia).

By Maurizio de Giovanni

A pleasure novel, with a mystery well designed and enriched by interesting human relationships, especially between a father and his daughter. The relative chain is not enough to really know a person, you must communicate.
I prefer to do not comment about the title and the metaphor on it … :-)
