This presenter always presents her material with enthusiasm and depth of knowledge, and she often picks unusual angles that reveal much about things I thought I knew. This talks is another fine example.
This was a fascinating discussion of 9 important, but usually not well known, innovations brought to the world by geniuses from Italy. From pizza Margherita (knew that one already) to communication apparati (radio transmitter, telephone) to the ice cream cone and a common coffee maker, through to the Vespa (of course), Laura held my interest well with her facts, photos, historical discussion, and amusing stories surrounding some of the innovations. Bottom line: I learned a lot of new information to further explore!
