San Valentino nel Parco

 

Un romantico weekend fra boschi innevati, ciaspole, lupi ed escursioni al chiaro di luna

 

Da Venerdì 10 a Domenica 12 Febbraio 2017

 

Le montagne del Parco ammantate di neve faranno da cornice a questo splendido e romantico week-end. Indosseremo le ciaspole per godere dell'atmosfera unica che solo il bosco d'inverno riesce a trasmettere. Cammineremo alla ricerca dei lupi, con la luna ad illuminare il nostro percorso. Alloggeremo presso un confortevole alberghetto e ci rilasseremo al fuoco del camino. Gusteremo i migliori piatti della tradizione abruzzese e passeremo un romantico week-end all'insegna dell'avventura.

The difference between men and women with respect to their age preferences, when it comes to sexual partners, is smaller than earlier believed. A recent study shows that also men become interested in older and older women as they themselves age.

The Asian or Black-spined Toad (Duttaphrynus melanostictus) has all the makings of a classic bad guy. The toad poisons predators, competes with burrow-nesting birds, and disrupts both nutrient pools and parasite dynamics. The Asian Toad’s latest target? Madagascar, where native species may be threatened by predation, competition for resources, or the toad’s natural defensive toxins.

Galileo’s birthday

 

Dialogue between Galileo Galilei and Miguel de Cervantes

 

Sunday, February 19, 2017

 

Museo Galileo celebrates the 453rd anniversary of the scientist after whom it is named.

On February 19, at 4.00 pm, an impossible (but realistic) dialogue between Galileo and Cervantes will take place, and excerpts from the works of both authors will be read.

The event is the outcome of the imagination, but also the expertise of three enthusiasts who, having got to know about the presence of a copy of Don Quixote in the private library of Galileo, have decided to put him in direct confrontation with Cervantes.

Characters and performers:

The Reader: Mara Miniati

Galileo: Riccardo Pratesi

Cervantes: Antonello La Vergata

The event will be held in Italian and is recommended for adults and children over 12 years. Reservations required at https://dialogogalileocervantes.eventbrite.it

The show is followed – at 5.00 pm – by a "Galilaean happy hour", which is prepared after the scientist's works and the letters of his daughter, Sister Maria Celeste.

The participation is free of charge and included in the admission ticket to the museum.

On that occasion the Museo Galileo will be exceptionally open until 7.00 pm.

On the same day, La Specola museum, Zoological section of the Natural History Museum (via Romana 17), will also celebrate the scientist with guided visits to the Torrino and the exhibition Astronomia e Fisica a Firenze. Dalla Specola ad Arcetri. The visits will take place in Italian at 11.00 am, at 12.30 pm and at 3.00 pm.

The participation is free of charge and included in the admission ticket to the museum.

Thanks to the special promotion between Museo Galileo and La Specola museum visitors who buy a full ticket in one of the two museums can access the other with a reduced fee.
