Feb. 6, 2024, 6PM: Andrea Giacomelli at “L’aperitivo parla inglese” @ Loft, Grosseto, Tuscany

The official presentation is on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/226359693875617. For the extra-Facebook folks:

Andrea Giacomelli is an environmental engineer and a PhD in hydrology, with forty years of international wanderings. In 2007 he decided to return to his family’s motherland, the Maremma, developing interdisciplinary projects involving culture, environment, open innovation and music, leading to some very particular results. Andrea will be speaking about comics, starting from the work of Jack Kirby, one of the greats of Marvel Comics, on the 30th anniversary of his death (and going back to Andrea as an addictioned reader of Kirby’s comics in the mid-Seventies)

Andrea Giacomelli è un ingegnere ambientale e dottore di ricerca in idrologia, con quaranta anni di pellegrinaggi internazionali. Nel 2007 ha deciso di spostarsi nella zona di origine della sua famiglia, la Maremma, sviluppando progetti interdisciplinari combinando aspetti culturali, ambientali, di innovazione libera e musicali, e ottenendo risultati piuttosto particolari. Andrea parlerà di fumetti, a partire dall’opera di Jack Kirby, uno dei maestri della Marvel Comics, nel 30° anniversario della sua morte (e partendo dalle memorie di Andrea come avido lettore dei fumetti di Kirby nella metà degli anni Settanta).

Every Tuesday, l’Aperitivo parla Inglese, to have a chat, in Italian or English. The event is public and with no additional charges. +39320 9616302.

The next event for BuioMetria Partecipativa will be on Friday, Oct. 18, from 2 to 3PM (@ FIDIA, villino Pastorelli, via Fallaci). This will be in the context of AMBITA, the forum on Italian Built Environment.

We will speak of the impact of artificial lighting on various aspects of society and nature, and of how simple practice can lead to significantly reduce light pollution without compromising the quality of our lives.

May 5, 2019: Come to the first “buioblitz” in Southern Tuscany @ Quanto Basta bookshop, Grosseto

Here is the PDF version of the event flyer (2.7 Mb)

In the framework of the services on light and darkness offered by pibinko.org with the BuioMetria Partecipativa project, here is an “aperitivo” to start listening to light with a different ear, and to co-design the BuioMetria Partecipativa 2019 Summer Campaign. The event will also see the world premiere presentation of site from where it is possible to observe the Milky Way (in Italian) by day.

All this will be on the avenue to the upcoming conference on interdisciplinary protection and promotion of the night sky, scheduled for May 16 at the University of Brescia, and where the BuioMetria Partecipativa project is managing the scientific program of the event.

RSVP by May 4 by mail (bmp@pibinko.org), phone (+39 331 7539228) ore coming to hear us with the Metalliferous Hills Jug Band and Peter Crivelli at Caffè Ricasoli in Grosseto, also on May 4.

Why did we call this a “buioblitz“? This is a sort of loose adaptation of the bioblitz concept, merged with the noun “buio”, which means darkness in Italian…in case you were not aware, with pibinko.org we do a lot of cross-over with words and names…
