Una successione di avvenimenti poco conosciuti, vissuti sullo sfondo della Francia monarchica e rivoluzionaria da Lavoisier e Marie-Anne Paulze, sono ripercorsi attraverso un’approfondita ricerca documentale: il fidanzamento, il matrimonio, le scoperte scientifiche, l’ascesa sociale, l’Accademia delle Scienze, il funzionamento dello Stato sotto l’Ancien Régime, i burrascosi anni della Rivoluzione, la tragica fine del marito e del padre. Da questa ricerca emerge, oltre a una straordinaria vita di coppia, il ritratto di un Lavoisier poco conosciuto, un uomo retto, onesto, competente, sensibile alle esigenze delle classi più povere, uno scienziato dalla intelligenza prodigiosa e poliedrica che spaziò nei campi più disparati del sapere, sempre con risultati eccellenti: naturalista, filosofo naturale, astronomo, economista, agronomo, innovatore dell’amministrazione e della finanza pubblica. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… A succession of little-known events, experienced against the backdrop of monarchical and revolutionary France by Lavoisier and Marie-Anne Paulze, are retraced through in-depth documentary research: the engagement, marriage, scientific discoveries, social ascent, the Academy of Sciences, the functioning of the State under the Ancien Régime, the stormy years of the Revolution, the tragic end of her husband and father. From this research emerges, in addition to an extraordinary married life, the portrait of a little-known Lavoisier, an upright, honest, competent man, sensitive to the needs of the poorer classes, a scientist with prodigious and multifaceted intelligence who ranged in the most disparate fields of knowledge, always with excellent results: naturalist, natural philosopher, astronomer, economist, agronomist, innovator of public administration and finance.]
