Saturday February 3d 2018, in the frame of North-West Interregional of the FIRST© LEGO© League, Scuola di Robotica and Acquarium of Genoa are pleased to present 'Abbestia, l' uomo visto dall' acqua' (Abbestia, Humans viewed from the Ocean), a traveling scientific vaudeville amongst and by the Acquarium animals.
The show, written by Andrea Begnini and Alessandro Bergallo, will feature actor Andrea Bergallo and the biologists of the Aquarium guiding the participants through an extraordinary theme: Humans are not so distant and not much different from the inhabitants of the Ocean.
This is the first date of an innovative theater format, designed to address scientific dissemination through fun.
This show alternates between the performance of actor Alessandro Bergallo and his vaudevillian sketch, and the scientific explanations by the biologists of the Acquarium: in different ways, but equally sharp and accurate, the interpreters will develop te theme of the soirée showing the "weird" behaviors of animals and humans.
Already successfully experienced for a whole season at the Claque del Teatro della Tosse in Genoa, the show is an original mechanism for conveying scientific content through entertainment.

The Making of an Idea
Once upon a time humans felt to stand at the centre of everything (and someone still believes it). But Galileo challenged this wrong conception, demonstrating that the Erath is not the centre of our Solar system. Few century later, Sigmund Freud explained that the individual is not even at the centre of himself: traumas, neuroses and anything else could thrown humans out of his/her brain.
Even more, Charles Darwin demonstrated that we are not even at the centre of nature: we are just animals like any other. Or perhaps more animals than the others.
This said, it could become all the more topical to outline, using un as a vehicle of understanding, which are the group dynamics and individual behaviors that make us so much resembling - and at the same time feel different - from other beings that inhabit this same piece of land (and much water).
Insects, fishes, monkeys, reptiles, dinosaurs and fantasy animals such as the elementary, a rare specimen of elephant with a marked vocation for self-isolation: all beasts are called into question to explain the complex dynamics that regulate our relationships and behaviors that are not in any way prerogative of the humans.
