)-- Ann C. Pizzorusso's lecture at the Garibaldi-Meucci Museum on Staten Island, New York, on October 29, 2015 at 2 p.m. will explore how Italy's geology has affected its history, art, religion, medicine and culture. Her highly illustrated talk incorporates the full-color photos, paintings, sketches and illustrations she gathered for her gold medal winning book, "Tweeting da Vinci."
She'll take us on a magical journey to see the River Styx, bathe in the Fountain of Youth, collect water which enhances fertility, wear a gem that heals bodily ailments, understand how our health is affected by geomagnetic fields, come close to the flames of Hell on Earth and much, much, more. And then, she'll reveal that these things exist--on Earth--today--in Italy and you can visit them.
"Tweeting da Vinci" has won numerous awards for content and beauty. It is also available in Italian as "Twittando da Vinci." Wonderfully illustrated and crammed with information, this book is perfect for the traveler (armchair or actual) wishing to visit these exciting places, trivia buffs and scholars alike.
There will be a book signing after the lecture.
About the author: Ann C. Pizzorusso is a geologist and Italian Renaissance scholar. After many years of doing virtually everything in the world of geology--drilling for oil, hunting for gems, cleaning up pollution in soil and groundwater, she turned her geologic skills toward Leonardo da Vinci.
About the Garibaldi-Meucci Museum: The Garibaldi-Meucci Museum, formerly known as the Garibaldi Memorial, is a circa 1840 Gothic Revival cottage in Staten Island, New York. It was home to inventor and candle maker Antonio Meucci (1808-1889). The Italian revolutionary and political leader Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807-1882) lived there from 1851 to 1853. After a major restoration, the museum was rededicated in a ceremony on July 11, 2009, involving museum president John Dabbene, Salvatore Lanzilotta, president of the New York State Order of the Sons of Italy in America, and U.S. Congressional Representative Michael McMahon. The site was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1980. It is located at 420 Tompkins Ave. Staten Island, NY 10305 (718) 442-1608.
