A reading and a dialogue on the systems of representation of the world

A few years before his death, Vasilij Grossman wrote a short story entitled The dog. Through the innocent eyes of this creature, he describes the preparations for the realisation of a space mission that produces, as an unexpected side effect, a new kind of connection among the protagonists of this experience. The reading of Grossman’s short story and the dialogue between Sonia Bergamasco and Guido Tonelli – a globally renowned physicist who played a key role in the discovery of the Higgs boson – propose a reflection on the systems of representation of the world through the languages of art and science.
