“Galileu em Pádua”, by Alessandro de Angelis
"The professor and LIP collaborator wrote "Galileu in Padua - The Eighteen Best Years of My Life". The book hits the Portuguese bookstands on Tuesday, published by Gradiva"
Alessandro de Angelis is a LIP collaborator in astroparticle and space projects, but he is also a professor of Physics in Lisbon and Padua. In these Italian lands, he got lost among letters, studies, biographies, and documents from several libraries to tell 18 of the 78 years of Galileo's life.
The scientist's professional and personal background, when he arrived in Padua, in 1592, where he started teaching, was compiled in the book "Galileo in Padua - The Eighteen Best Years of My Life". The work arrives tomorrow on Portuguese bookstands, published by Gradiva.
In a pre-publication made by Público, we read that Alessandro de Angelis managed to write the book (almost) as if Galileo himself had done it.
