In the context of a project of narration of astrophysical themes through Cinema and Theater, we will tell the story of the birth of a documentary film on the discovery of the Cavezzo Meteorite, made by the PRISMA fireball network in January 2020. The Italian National Institute for Astrophysics and the theater company Il Piccolo Teatro d'Arte have created a documentary that brings the voices of the protagonists of the discovery together with the mythical, historical and poetic narration of the meteoric phenomenon in a broad sense, with the aim of obtaining an involvement of the audience on both sound science and emotionality. 

Il Piccolo Teatro d'Arte:

Federica Valenti, Elisa Caponi, Arianna Lodato, Giovanni Licari
