Petrarch follows his parents to Avignon, which Pope Clement V just made his home. On 6 April 1327, he sees a woman called Laura for the first time. This encounter will have major repercussions: today, we still read the poems of the Canzoniere she inspired. Through history, art history, language, and matter, Gaëlle Bourges and Gwendoline Robin explore this meeting and its random and explosive effects.
