In the garden of Italy’s most famous talents, Massimo Marchiori, Italian scientist whose work has inspired Google, presents the latest literary “Less Internet, more Cabernet”-The great show of progress between Michelangelo and Google, taking us on a unique journey to discover our world, a world full of technological but where is easy to miss, overwhelmed by thespeed of progress. Unless you know where to look …
What have in common Google and the sound barrier, the donkeys and the penalties, the Sistine Chapel and the reign of Facebook? Apparently nothing, but changing perspective and looking at things without preconceptions, they can grasp the intimate connection, and discover that the world we live in is not so obvious.
In this amazing journey to the winding paths of human progress, in the footsteps of the pioneers who have been able to go beyond common sense, Massimo Marchiori accompanies us along the human evolution, technological but also social, and reciprocal relations, which find their synthesis in human impulses.
From elephant to unusual Internet history of the salamander, from toilet paper to discover the real “Google’s mother”, the book deals with lightness of tone and depth of topics the contradictions of real world and virtual worlds, and hot issues of knowledge communication and future progress. A future in which man, in spite of everything, is still the main character.
This will be followed by a cocktail offered by Birra Antoniana.
