What's on in Florence in March

In few days a brand new exhibit will start at Palazzo Strozzi, in the center of Florence.
Palazzo Strozzi will host a great exhibition sponsored by the Ministry for Cultural Heritaged and Region of Tuscany, that is dedicated to Galileo Galilei, the man who led to the current conception of the universe.
The exhibition reconstructs the history of the Cosmos, as designed and shown extending the Scientific Revolution, in the context of social and cultural events that have characterized the Mediterranean and European civilization. An exciting journey that starts with the visions and mystical poetry prior to the Greeks, passing through the vital contribution of astronomy and Arab lands to the revolutionary theory of Copernicus shot from Galileo and Kepler, which contributed significantly the affirmation of the final new concept of the universe.

This fascinating history is illustrated dramatically from scientific instruments of exceptional beauty and ingenuity, celestial atlases, drawings, paintings, sculptures, archaeological finds and precious illuminated manuscripts from the most prestigious museums and libraries around the world. All this is explained and supported by extraordinary operating cosmological models made for the occasion. Multimedia applications and suggestive movies explore the key issues.
A special section is reserved for the original telescope of Galileo came up to us (preserved in the Museum of the History of Science in Florence).
