La biologa Sara Lewis ha trascorso gli ultimi vent'anni indagando a fondo la magia e la meraviglia delle lucciole. In questo intervento affascinante ci mostra come e perché questi coleotteri producono i loro silenziosi scintillii, cosa succede quando due lucciole si accoppiano e perché un gruppo di femmine è conosciuto come lucciole-vampiro. E non è un bel motivo.
