Have you ever wondered why we measure electricity with Volts? What is the origin of this word? Did you know  that it comes from the surname of the Italian scientist Alessandro Volta, inventor of the battery!

In this live presentation we will discuss inventions over the past 100+ years that have an Italian origin.

From jeans, to a moka-pot, Pizza electric energy, and the telephone, you will learn how they're connected to Italy.

In this tour you will learn about the lives of these inventors such as Antonio Meucci, Alessandro Volta, Antonio Stradivari, and I will tell about the path that led to the creation of all these items and more!
