Giordano Bruno is considered one of the brightest and knowledgeable figures humanity could ever proudly enumerate. Officially labelled as “heretic”, “obscure” and “sinister” he was able to predict and elaborate theories about astrophics, chemistry and physiology in huge advance with surgical accuracy, in spite of the fact that no tool at the time was so refined to remotely allow this sort of investigations.
He was an incredibly prolific writer, novelist and tempestuous traveller who embodied indeed the pure essence of the Renaissance men.
Bruno produced a consistent body of work were described with incredible precision the dynamics of the universe, stars and constellation, almost confirming through imagination, some findings which were proven right many centuries later!
His image is widely related to the world of esotericism as he studied magic, nature and psychology as interlinked elements of the universe.
He paid with life his unquenchable necessity to investigate the reality, being executed by the Inquisition tribunal.
