When the great scientist and professor Galileo meets a bright farm boy, Massimo, the teacher becomes the student. On an ordinary day, Galileo encounters Massimo dropping food from a bridge to his uncle passing below in his boat. This simple action makes Galileo rethink Aristotle’s teachings. Galileo takes an interest in Massimo’s cleverness, and together, in a series of experiments, the two investigate the science of motion.

Kids will love this lively reimagining of Galileo’s Leaning Tower experiment and be encouraged by Massimo’s eagerness to learn. With curiosity and a willing teacher, anyone can be a scientist.
