Summer at MAXXI - The wonders of the possible.From the landing on the Moon to the stars

Three dates to discuss and explore the literature and the science fiction orbiting the Moon.

Since the dawn of time, science fiction has tried to talk about the fascination of the conquest of the Moon, starting from the landing, addressing the issue of possible human settlement. Then it went beyond, pointing towards Mars and the other planets of the solar system, in a dream of hope for the human beings, who are incapable of preserving their planet. From the red planet, it travelled to the limits of the system, and beyond, to other galaxies, colonizing a universe that was never too large for the beautiful adventures of international science fiction movies and novels.
