Abstract: 
In my talk I will pose several questions about prime numbers. We will see that on the one hand some of them allow an answer with a proof of just a few lines, on the other hand, some of them lead to deep questions and conjectures not yet understood. This seems to represent a general pattern in mathematics: your curiosity leads to a
study of easy questions related with quite deep structures. I will give many examples, suggestions and references for further study.
