Life of Galileo (in German: Leben des Galilei) is a play written by the German dramatist Bertold Brecht, of which exist many versions and revisions. The most important ones were written in the years 1938-1939 (Danish version), 1943-1945 (American version) and 1956 (Berliner version). The work tells about Galileo Galilei's life.
Andrea Sarti manages to bring the manuscript of Galilei's book "Discourses and Mathematical Demonstrations Relating to Two New Sciences" ("Discorsi e dimostrazioni matematiche intorno a due nuove scienze attenenti alla meccanica e i movimenti locali") out of Italy.
