January 1610: from the garden of his home in Padua, Galileo Galilei directs an innovative instrument towards the sky, the telescope, and observes ‘four little stars’. He has just discovered the largest satellites of Jupiter, which he describes, together with the surface of the Moon and the Milky Way, in the treatise ‘Starry Messenger’ (Sidereus Nuncius), published in March of the same year. He has lived in Padua for eighteen years, holding the chair of mathematics at the university, a productive time that he called “the best years of my life”.

While here, he develops his revolutionary theories and makes the discoveries that pave the way for a new conception of the universe. It is the beginning of a way of doing science based on the autonomy of thought, centred on Nature and physical laws: it is Galileo’s experimental method. It is the birth of the Scientific Method.

Knowledge is freedom.
