A view of Leonardo da Vinci by me (us) 
On the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, organized with some friends of mine

on Saturday, November 9, 2019
A Meeting on: Leonardo, a versatile artist and systems engineer

On the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, countless conferences, exhibitions, events and conferences on this Renaissance genius in Italy and around the world have been organized throughout the year by a myriad of institutions, covering all the various aspects, aspects and true and presumed inheritances in the world of today of the activity of this great man.

At the invitation and suggestion of various members, the club Circolo Numismatico Monzese also wanted to organize an evening with Alberto on the subject, trying to suggest, as far as can be done in such a short time, a vision that highlights the personal holistic, practical and constant research that is behind his thoughts, his studies and his works, anticipating in his time the principles of modern technical artistic and scientific disciplines.

Speaker: Alberto Capponi
Friday 22 November 2019 - 8.45 pm
c/o RSA Bellani - Conference Room
Via Lipari 7 - MONZA

The long pause has come to an end 
Virtualab has been inactive for a long time.
Nevertheless, the Lab activities continued fruitfully in a less showy way on other channels.
Now it's time to post again.

Wikimania2016 report 
Wikimania 2016 - My short personal reportage from Esino Lario and surroundings..

Thursday 23
I stayed at the Wikimania preconference, attending to the Wikimedia sessions and the EU advocacy, thinking about digital images attributions, free panoramas, EU members and candidate members copyright laws. Some Hackaton at the Theatre's stage with a bunch of Solitude's lovers assisting in the Silence.

Friday 24
St. John Baptist holiday and Wikimania official opening. Jimmy Wales and the whole Wikipedia/Wikimedia global community had a warm welcome from the Esino Lario people. Over 1100+ people registered from over 60 countries.
Visited Villa Clotilde ant the Museum.
A long conversation with Bengt, a new friend from Wikipedia Sweden, about cross dissemination of pages in different languages and Milanese and Larian cultural heritage issues in the European context.
I've attended research and technical sessions @the Gym Palace and the Theatre.

Saturday 25
Weather isn't so fine and sunny. At ten o'clock a thunderstorm rapidly approached the venue from Switzerland and passed away. Anyway I preferred to stay in Perledo making some offline activity. Too crowded to choose and follow the right thread. :)
The Olive Oil Day is the main event of my after-noon starting from 15h.

Sunday 26
Final day: global perspectives from different solid branches of the Wikitree. After all, maybe free and wise use of images and related metadata is the New Frontier of Wiki systems. Farewell from the village Marching Band to everyone.
