STORY DESCRIPTION:

L’anziano Pepe rivive nel ricordo l’esperienza del passaggio della cometa di Halley che riattraversa l’orizzonte terrestre a 76 anni di distanza dal 1910; allora era bambino e durante la processione del paese per il Venerdì Santo, fu testimone dello straordinario evento. La ripetizione di quel magico avvenimento, oltre alla curiosità scientifica, fa riflettere sui misteri dell’universo.

Spring of 1910, Pepe was a child and saw Halley’s Comet during its spectacularly bright journey across the night sky; in the midst of a midnight Easter procession, in his small Italian village, Pepe will never forget it. 76 years later, Halley’s Comet is back, and, not also is its journey curious from a scientific point of view, but also makes us think of the mistery of the universe.
