From mythical and spectacular epics populated by heroes with extraordinary powers to the rigorous, verifiable and reproducible investigation of scientific merit, everything theoretically seemed to oppose mythology and sciences. However, literature, cinema and arts like to combine them and make us see what the world of tomorrow should be. Cédric Villani, awarded the Fields Medal in 2010 and Bryan Perro, author of the famous children’s series Amos Daragon will be, among others, on our guest list to explore this unlikely relation.
