This exhibition is a real time trip which starts from antiquity, with the first mystical and poetical interpretations of the universe mysteries made by Egyptians. In addition, the attention will shift on the first planetary architectures of Greeks, to the first theories about the origins of the universe by Copernico, until the theories and discoveries of the fathers of modern astronomy, Galileo and Keplero, followed by Newton.
