"Virginia and Galileo Galilei: A Sky Full of Discoveries".

Shadow theatre provided by EU-UNAWE presenters from the world-famous Arcetri Observatory in Florence, Italy. The play introduces Virginia, Galileo's daughter, and her imagined responses to the new world-view being discovered and promoted by her father following his first use of the telescope in 1609 to look at the stars. It has been produced thanks to the practical contributions and ideas of the famous puppet-maker and shadow-theatre expert Mariano Dolci.
