“Galileo’s followers is a visual representation that highlights Galileo Galilei’s network of relationships through the analysis of the exchange of letters with his contemporaries. During his life Galileo held a correspondence with lots of people: relatives, friends, religious people, supporters and opponents of his ideas.
The myth of the scientist closed in his study seems to be refuted by Galileo’s dense network of contacts that highlights how the communication was already important at that time.
