Tweeting Da Vinci [Twittando Da Vinci]

(Da Vinci Press, 2014)

by Ann Pizzorusso


Geologist and Italian Renaissance art scholar Ann C. Pizzorusso will present her new book, Tweeting Da Vinci, (in Italian Twittando Da Vinci) which explores the geology of Italy and how it influenced its art, architecture, religion, medicine, literature and just about everything else. She will discuss not only Leonardo but Dante, Virgil and many others, shedding new geologic light on their works as well as showing us the places they described exist in Italy today.
