Personalised gifts while you wait

I first discovered this shop in Venice a few years ago and bought a personalised apron for our daughter. She recently discovered one in Syracuse Sicily. I’m now in Florence and there’s one here near the Duomo. Surprising that there are not more around the world. A machinist sits at the window and embroiders any name that you like on their items. www.ricamiveronicaroma.it

An installation that protects a national treasure

A special technical installation, a sort of “artificial lung”, is at the entrance to the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, Italy. The Chapel is a masterpiece in the history of painting in Italy and Europe in the 14th century. The special air-conditioned environment in the installation both purifies the air inside the Chapel and monitors its atmosphere continuously, in order to protect unique frescoes, some of the most important of all time. Groups of maximum 25 people wait at the door to the air-conditioned waiting-room to the chapel for 15 minutes, the time needed to stabilise the interior microclimate. They then enter the Chapel for another 15 minutes. Visits last a total of about 30 minutes. Automatic access doors open only once on entrance and exit, to allow stabilisation of the interior microclimate. http://www.cappelladegliscrovegni.it

A wedding at a Tuscan Villa

Our son and his beautiful new bride planned their wedding at Villa Di Ulignano in the countryside of Volterra Italy. The Villa was booked for a week and about 40 very close friends and family came from around the world to attend the wedding and planned festivities before and after. A great success. The Villa was made famous by Visconti-one of Italy’s greatest film directors of the 20th century.

Using a mirror to copy a masterpiece

Inventor Tim Jenison attempted to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (“Girl with a Pearl Earring”) manage to paint so photo-realistically. So he painted his daughter Claire in the same pose with a comparator mirror and the similarity to the original is striking. Now on display at MONA in Hobart as “Claire with a Pearl Earring” along with an exhibit showing the technique he used.

A 2,000 year old Egyptian mummy scanned

This mummy is on display at MONA in Hobart. Alongside it, in a separate coffin, you can see progressive scans of the body. It’s surprising that the skeleton has been preserved for so long. The scanning process can be applied to any volumetric dataset – not just mummies. For instance, you could now have yourself (alive or recently deceased beloved family or pets etc.) CAT-scanned and made into a hologram, a crystal paper-weight, or a life-size volumetric 3D prototype replicant. www.petermorse.com.au/2011/07/visualizing-pausiris-mona/

High heels becoming unfashionable

Women are trading in their high-heeled stiletto shoes for sneakers and ballet flats. Workplaces are becoming more casual, and it’s increasingly acceptable to wear sneakers to dinner. More people are working from home, and those who do go into the office are often walking to work. Fitness trackers like the Fitbit have also made people more aware of how much they are — or should be — moving. For people counting their steps, it makes sense to wear comfortable footwear and clothing. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/2018/03/07/high-heels-are-the-worst-and-women-are-finally-ditching-them/?
