This paper is the fifth in a series on the theme of the communication of mathematics in Europe. This episode is located is Pisa and features the monologist and mathematical populariser Eduardo Sáenz de Cabezón. The topics covered in the course of the interview include: how to narrate mathematics in a show; how to reconcile research, communication and teaching; the communication of mathematics in Spain; the importance of training to be effective communicators; the interdisciplinary approach to communication; and much more. Eduardo and his versatility allow us to savour the wonders of a world in which the contamination between different fields becomes a richness, and the beauty of mathematics and its message are exalted with wisdom and care by the artistic sensibility that guides his popularisation activities.
