24h of foosball

"The normalists have developed a simulator of the real world in order to do experiments without going out of their dorm rooms. The mathematicians are dissatisfied with the limitations posed by the physics simulator, so they decide to withdraw their code from the project to make a simulator of mathematics that would keep its purity intact. The physicists, unable to go on without the math engine, decide to steal their code, being forced by imminent deadlines.
Will the physicists succeed in their foul ends? WIll the mathematicians manage to counter them?
Who will win the 24h?"

This short movie was made on the occasion of the annual competition of foosball organized every year by the students of the Scuola Normale Superiore, known as "24 ore di biliardino" [24h of foosball].
During the competition the Mathematicians clash against the Physicists (aka Non-mathematicians) in a fierce battle to the last goal.
