There are places that you go to, and once is enough. And then there is Napoli. John Turturro, Passione

TweetingDaVinciCongratulations to Ann Pizzorusso - our resident geologist author of our EarthScape Naples series. Her new book Tweeting Da Vinci is now available on amazon. Beautifully written and illustrated, Ann takes us on a magical, mystical journey through Italy, introducing us to poets, mystics, artists, and scientists along the way. Her prose and humour bring the history of Italy’s ancient landscape alive and in the end, Ann's book is no ordinary trek around Italy, but rather a beautiful tribute to mother earth and a book that anyone who has ever had a love affair with Italy will want to read. Congratulations Ann!!!
