A summary of the history of our University from its foundation to the early 2000s.
A very young apprentice arrives in Padua to meet Master Jan Stephan van Calcar, a pupil of Titian. A stunning task awaits him; he must complete the drawings for Andrea Vesalius, the scientist in the mist of writing a great anatomical dissertation. The young apprentice is superstitious and prefers to work with paintbrushes and colours, not with corpses. Over time, Vesalius explains the science behind these drawings but the boy remains concerned. A murder involving the family of a girl who is dear to the young apprentice remains unsolved, and it is Vesalius who solves the mystery!
