Title: Hidden Symmetries of the Supersymmetric Free Differential Algebra of D=11 Supergravity

Abstract: I will present an investigation of the hidden symmetries of the supersymmetric Free Differential Algebra of D=11 supergravity, focusing on the physical role of the nilpotent fermionic generator naturally appearing in the hidden superalgebra underlying the theory. I will also discuss the relation between this superalgebra and osp(1|32).
