con Valerio Rossi Albertini, il pianista Mario Merola e gli esperti
Conduce Rosita Sosto Archimio
50 years ago, on the 20th July 1969, the whole humanity touched, for the first time in its brief history, a celestial body that was not the Earth. When Neil Armstrong’s foot touched the lunar ground – followed by Buzz Aldrin, while the third expedition member, Michael Collins, controlled the Columbia command module – the many people who were watching all over the world that extraordinary moment on TV dreamt, together, of a new world and a new future. We want to remember that memorable event with a night of science and entertainment curated by Città della Scienza. Different but complementary protagonists and languages will alternate on the stage of Villa Rufolo: Valerio Rossi Albertini, physicist, CNR researcher and well-known divulger scientific, will tell us about that milestone of human history; Mario Merola, pianist and physicist, will interpret our relationship, also emotional, with the Moon thanks to authors such as Scarlatti, Debussy, Chopin and others; finally, the amateur astronomers of the association AstroCampania, Osservatorio Astronomico Salvatore di Giacomo, will have us admire the Moon and the sky, on the telescope, on a summer night.
