De Rerum Natura
cycle of literary and musical digressions on the work of Lucretius

introduction and musical selection Jacopo Rivani
narrator Camilla Berardi

a project curated by La Corelli

An extraordinary journey through the secrets of nature and the mystery of human existence: this is what Lucretius undertakes in his De rerum natura, where, in defiance of religious beliefs and superstitions, he skilfully combines philosophy and ancient science to explain that the universe is shaped by natural laws and not by divine intervention. And now, young actress Camilla Berardi renews his invitation to view the world with fresh eyes and an open mind. She engages in a dialogue with music and sounds that evoke the impressions and ideas of the Latin poet. Each episode explores the tonal essence of an instrument, culminating in a summa of all the timbres produced by the orchestra, woven into a final praise of Epicurus.
