He spoke to APE-MPE about his weakness in Greek dances Giorgio Paris, his winner this year Nobel Prize in Physics.
“I accidentally approached Greek dances, attending classes by Andreas Pelitsia Ganotakis, in a link in Rome. “Greek dances arouse your passion, in contrast to Italian traditional dances (such as saltarello and manfrina) which are no longer really” alive “, said the scientist.
As he said, “only the Italian tarantula is something similar to those danced in Greece”.
“In your country, the whole village participates in the dance, in groups, often in a circle. Depending on the different places, the priest or the oldest of the village “drags” the dance. “With them, small children, four or five years old, also have fun”, the physicist continued.
He added: “Greek dances are thousands and you never stop learning” because “the most famous may be about fifty, but the least common are inexperienced”. Giorgio Parisi typically referred to “Tai-Tai, which is danced on Holy Tuesday.”
It is, according to the folklorist Dim. Loukato for a “special” local dance of Thessaly that is danced by men and women only on Easter Tuesday. It is called “tai tai” probably from the repeated syllables of “t ‘ainevene”, a word that exists in the second verse of the song, notes APE BPE.
Closing his statements to the Athenian / Macedonian Agency, the Nobel laureates pointed out: “Dancing, learning all these Greek traditional dances, gives you great pleasure. You join a large group of people and thanks to the various moves, you know and love this whole tradition much more “.
Who and why received this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics
It is recalled that this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to three scientists, one of whom is Mr. Paris, for “the pioneering contribution to our understanding of complex natural systems.”
In particular, the Nobel Prize in Physics 2021 is awarded half to all Thank you Manabe and Klaus Hasselmann “For the natural modeling of the Earth’s climate, the quantification of variability and the reliable prediction of global warming” and the other half in Giorgio Paris “To discover the interaction of perturbation and fluctuations in physical systems from atomic to planetary scales”.
