Preview of "The Gardener of God" in Monaco
The film is being screened as part of "Italian Language and Culture Month"
"The Gardener of God" tells the story of Gregor Mendel, a Catholic priest and founder of modern genetics, who lived in the 19th century.
His invention led to "Mendel's laws," which define the way in which genes reproduce from generation to generation.
Mendel is nicknamed "The Gardener of God" because his revolutionary discovery was made during experiments carried out in the vegetable garden of the monastery where he was Prior.
