Umberto Vincenti - Lo studente che sfidò il Papa
Italiano | 2020 | 165 pages | ISBN: 885814192X | EPUB | 1,4 MB

Prima di Giordano Bruno, nel 1555, Pomponio de Algerio, anch'egli nolano e studente dell'Università di Padova, viene processato presso il Tribunale locale dell'Inquisizione perché sospettato di essere protestante. A nulla gli valse l'appello ai giudici per il rispetto della particolare libertas di cui godevano gli studenti a Padova. Grida più e più volte che il papa è l'anticristo e i vescovi e i cardinali un'accolita di ladri e corrotti. Papa Paolo IV fa tutto ciò che è in suo potere per averlo dinanzi a sé, a Roma. Condannato a morte per eresia, Pomponio verrà arso vivo a Piazza Navona nel 1556. Una storia drammatica - tra Padova, Venezia e Roma, nel cuore del Cinquecento - di uno studente eretico che, probabilmente per primo, non si piega al volere del papa creatore dell'Inquisizione romana: il contributo di una grande università italiana e dei suoi scolari per l'affermazione della libertà di pensiero.

Il y a cent ans s'affrontaient dans le ciel de Verdun les premiers as de l'aviation lors de combats mémorables entre « Bébé » Nieuport français et Fokker allemands. D'une main, le pilote armait sa mitrailleuse tout en pilotant de l'autre ! Un siècle plus tard, la guerre aérienne a changé de visage, et les acrobaties des frêles biplans font sourire face aux Rafale extrêmement sophistiqués ? …
