Head and title: what's the difference?

I’ve been learning the basis of html, but I could not understand what head (=metadata?) is for: my thought is that it’s something nobody will read unless they read the source code, then what’s the point in writing that?

Also I don’t understand why title``/title goes inside the head``/head element: is that to avoid that the title to be shown in the page?

Thanks in advance, guys.
