Presented for the first time on the occasion of the 2012 edition of the World Science Festival, Dear Albert traces an intimate and relatively unknown path around the life of Albert Einstein. The readings humanize a giant in the pantheon of great scientists, shedding light on his important scientific work through accounts from his private life, such as the letters to his wife Mileva Maric in which the young scientist confides dreams, projects, hopes and disappointments. Stages that were frequently difficult in the emotive and intellectual maturation that was to lead him to the great discoveries of 1905, true “conceptual revolutions” of our century.
