The work is a tribute to the interdependence between art and scientific knowledge, to their millennial relationship, to their intertwining and mutual influence. The book of Science with the portraits of Albert Einstein and Galileo Galilei and the book of Art with the portraits of Leonardo da Vinci and Dante Alighieri are symbolically united by an endless staircase in a millennial relationship. The panel is connected to the pedestal by a metal rod that allows the work to rotate from one facade to the other.
