So, Origami Tessellations (in the guise of Eric Gjerde) will be travelling to “Il Convegno del CDO in Verbania, Italy, on December 8-10. I should be rolling into Milan on the 7th, and heading back out sometime later on the next week (13th? 15th? something like that.)
Right now I’ve got an open schedule, other than that Friday through Sunday, so if any other origami/math/design/art freaks in that region of Europe want to meet up I’ll be in the area. I’m contemplating staying in Milan for a day or two and then maybe checking out Firenze, although that’s all utterly unknown right now.
Anybody have suggestions as to what I should go see? It’s going to be wintertime, but I think I can handle whatever Italy can throw at me- I do live in the coldest state in the continental US. There’s so much to see that I’m having a bit of cultural overload. I might have a travelling partner (my much cooler younger brother) to boot, if I’m lucky.
If you’ve got some hints, throw me a bone here. I should be rolling with some seriously sweet geometrical monstrosities, as well, so if for some reason you’d like to see my creations up-close-and-personal just ask, and I’ll make a vagabond journey to your burg and do some show-and-tell.
