Here's a synopsis for Frammenti di scienze inesatte from the production: "Dr. Bartolomeo Zacchìa is the headmaster of a medical and natural sciences school, where official subjects together with unusual disciplines are taught - for example, thanatology, apocryphal zoology, and taxidermic sculpture.
Zacchìa rents out an old house to some of his students he has selected with particular care, considering their nature and ambitions. Among these students are: Tadeusz and Berenice, a young couple obsessed with spontaneous generation and the creation of a human being from nothing; Nataniele, a researcher of angels who is grappling with an apple coming from the same tree that originated sin; Cassandra, a young victim of a peculiar case of apparent death; Giona, an artist who is fond of collecting objects and creating a Wunderkammer; and Rebecca, a restorer of old toys.
Zacchìa follows the students' inclinations with great attention, trying to support them in their interests. But the doctor is keeping a secret!"
