  Il senso della bellezza
  "Particle physicists and avant-garde artists find  themselves speaking the same language." - LA REPUBBLICA
Plot: Four years after the sensational discovery of the ‘Higgs boson’, the CERN research centre is about to undertake a remarkable new experiment. Ten thousand scientists from around the world will work together, using the largest machine ever built by human beings. The experiment is a journey through the remotest time and on the smallest scale that we can imagine: an exploration of matter about one millionth of a second following the Big Bang that generated our universe.
Among scientists who can no longer picture Nature and artists who have lost the traditional idea of Beauty, through machines that look like works of art and art installations that look like laboratory experiments, there emerges a portrait of both scientific and artistic practice as investigation and imagination, as the genuine exercise of freedom. 
The documentary is a journey in search of new images capable of replacing those we have lost: above all the reassuring picture of Nature which emerged from our religious traditions and from our own five senses.  But in their search for truth they are all alert to an elusive sixth – or seventh – sense… the sense of beauty.
