Abstract:
Cosmology has undergone a revolution in the last 20 years. Now we are able to describe the whole known Universe with only six numbers. But describing is not understanding. We still don't understand why Universe is as it is and why there are the energetic components we mesure. This talk will describe the current state of our understanding of the Universe and the new perspectives opened with the new experiments.
