Salvador Dalí , was known for his wild art and a public personality to match, and these two elements helped him rise above the rest of the surrealists. His quote said it all “the difference between me and the surrealists, is that I am a surrealist”. He is memorable because he was a pioneer of the movement. He was involved in all aspects of artistic creation from painting, sculpture, design, drawing, movies, fashion, etc. He applied the surrealist concept to everything he said did. His audacity and rebellious attitude towards art and politics set him aside from others and allowed him to create some of the most famous and recognizable paintings of the 20th century. His unconventional style and sometimes outrageous ideas were highly sought in his commercial work - in fashion, photography, advertising and film - they brought the style to a huge popular audience. Not only did he leave a mark on surrealism but even twenty years following his death, his artwork and influences can be seen almost everywhere around the world. If you stop anyone in the street, most will be familiar with at least one of his images. The name Dalí is magic, he remains an icon.

Daverio attended the European School in Varese, and then studied economics and commerce at the Bocconi University in Milan Despite completing his cycle of studies, Daverio refrained from writing his final dissertation. As he said, "I was enrolled at Bocconi in 1968–1969, but I don't hold a degree. In those years you would go to university to learn, not to graduate". In 1975 he opened Galleria Philippe Daverio in Via Monte Napoleone in Milan, where he mostly focused on the avant-garde movements of the first half of the 20th century. In 1986, he opened the Philippe Daverio Gallery in New York City. In 1989 he opened a second gallery of contemporary art in Milan, Italy. The gallery eventually went bankrupt and closed in 1997. As a gallerist and publisher, Daverio has organized many exhibitions, including Andy Warhol's Last Supper in Milan. Through his program Passepartout, he explains any kind of art in such a marvelous and down to earth way but cultural deep, that one enjoys to understand everything and get into the subject.
Dante Alighieri è stato un poeta, scrittore e politico italiano, considerato il padre della lingua italiana; la sua fama è dovuta eminentemente alla paternità della Comedìa, divenuta celebre come Divina Commedia e universalmente considerata la più grande opera scritta in lingua italiana e uno dei maggiori capolavori della letteratura mondiale. Espressione della cultura medievale, filtrata attraverso la lirica del Dolce stil novo, la Commedia è anche veicolo allegorico della salvezza umana, che si concreta nel toccare i drammi dei dannati, le pene purgatoriali e le glorie celesti, permettendo a Dante di offrire al lettore uno spaccato di morale ed etica. Importante linguista, teorico politico e filosofo, Dante spaziò all'interno dello scibile umano, segnando profondamente la letteratura italiana dei secoli successivi e la stessa cultura occidentale, tanto da essere soprannominato il "Sommo Poeta" o, per antonomasia, il "Poeta". Dante, le cui spoglie si trovano presso la tomba a Ravenna costruita nel 1780 da Camillo Morigia, è diventato uno dei simboli dell'Italia nel mondo, grazie al nome del principale ente della diffusione della lingua italiana, la Società Dante Alighieri, mentre gli studi critici e filologici sono mantenuti vivi dalla Società dantesca. A partire dal XX secolo e nei primi anni del XXI, Dante è entrato a far parte della cultura di massa, mentre la sua opera e la sua figura hanno ispirato il mondo dei fumetti, dei manga, dei videogiochi e della letteratura.
Each forcola I create is like a journey. I start by studying the walnut wood trunk, as though I were in a foreign land which will slowly become friendlier. I outline the “forcola” with care respecting the grains of the wood, and then embark on the task, sweating and taking delight in the hard work. Every now and then I observe it as a traveler would when he gazes back to see how far he has come and stops for a moment to contemplate the scenery. I work slowly at times, and at others with a sense of urge, vigor and tenderness until I begin to see the curves and the lines I wanted emerging from the wood. Completing a forcola is a bit like crossing a finish line. I savor the moment as it will stay forever. Something has been created. And I must wait a little longer before embarking on another journey.

The Diomede Islands, also known in Russia as Gvozdev Islands, consist of two rocky, mesa-like islands: the Russian island of Big Diomede, and the U.S. island of Little Diomede (part of Alaska) or Ignaluk, also known as Krusenstern Island. The Diomede Islands are located in the middle of the Bering Strait between mainland Alaska and Siberia, which borders the Chukchi Sea to the north and the Bering Sea to the south. Because they are separated by the International Date Line, Big Diomede is almost a day ahead of Little Diomede, but not completely; due to locally defined time zones, Big Diomede is only 21 hours ahead of Little Diomede (20 in summer). Because of this, the islands are sometimes called Tomorrow Island (Big Diomede) and Yesterday Island (Little Diomede).
