The Roof of Africa is home to the last of the world’s Ethiopian Wolves. Inhabiting a spectacular landscape 4.000 meters above see level, life for this highly endangered species is anything but ordinary. This film tells the dramatic story of Megeti, a lone wolf who wanders across the highlands on a quest to find a new home after loosing her pack and suddenly being left to fend for herself. Combining a unique and intimate predator portrait, as well as widely unknown landscapes and high-end photography, this is a memorable film experience about an Africa rarely seen on TV.

We use ‘bird-brained’ as an insult - Maybe we’ve got that wrong. Bird brains are sophisticated high speed processors. They have to be. Birds fly. Formation flying is hard enough with nine jet aircraft. But starlings do it with millions of other birds. Let's reconsider birds' brains.

Through the combination of sacred and profane that she embodies, the profoundly human personality of Mary Magdalene greatly inspired artists of the Baroque era, whether painters, poets or composers. It was in the sphere of influence of Italian oratorios, highly prized at the court of Vienna, that Antonio Bertali devoted a most moving sepolcro to her in 1663, a genre traditionally played during Holy Week. In 1617, in Mantua, it was in the form of theatrical interludes that she was honoured by court composers such as Salomone Rossi, Muzio Effrem and Claudio Monteverdi, who wrote the prologue for this other Maddalena.

Il ruolo delle formiche nella biosfera – ci dice Edward Wilson – è così importante che l'umanità forse non potrebbe sopravvivere senza di esse. E di certo non potrebbe sopravvivere senza batteri e archei, l'invisibile e onnipresente «materia oscura» dell'universo vivente della Terra. Ma l'umanità, prigioniera della propria strategia arcaica della sopravvivenza a breve termine, è ancora troppo concentrata su se stessa e sui propri bisogni, e sta distruggendo la natura con la forza di un meteorite. Entro la fine del secolo, metà di tutte le specie potrebbero essere definitivamente uscite di scena. Avrà allora inizio quella che potrebbe venire ricordata un giorno come l'Era eremozoica – l'Età della Solitudine. …

Sull’impatto dell’uomo sulla natura, che ormai sta creando danni incalcolabili alla biosfera, sono state ipotizzate centinaia di misure, che si sono però rivelate blande e inefficaci e che mai hanno portato risultati concreti. Stanco di assistere a questi fallimenti, il premio Pulitzer Edward Wilson – biologo da sempre interessato al rappporto tra l’uomo e le altre specie animali – propone una soluzione radicale, proporzionale alla gravità del problema che abbiamo di fronte: …
