Yesterday I saw Marco Paolini in Cesena, I like very much his way of making theatre; the show was called "Itis Galileo" and basically through the life of the great scientist it presented the problem of opening society to the idea of a scientific approach to the study of existance and phisics; its is beyond the conflict between science and religion, the church, I believe, here represents the symbol of power and stagnation, the will to implement certainty even without foundation and refuse investigation because it might be dangerous and generate a desire for change. The perspective given to the show was interesting, I did not always agree on the interpretation but overall it was very good, some parts were very amusing too and the way he manages to hold your attention for two hours without any interruption is simply amazing!
