Great work[edit]

Hello Ettore, just wanted to say you are doing great work uploading pictures! I noticed some were removed from the wikipedia articles because there already were images, but dont worry, they are still usefull on wikimedia commons. Please keep up the good work! Ruigeroeland (talk) 16:59, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

And congrats on your first two articles! Ruigeroeland (talk) 11:04, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Greetings[edit]

Nice work Ettore.I very much hope we will see more of your work through 2011.Best regards Robert aka Notafly (talk) 15:33, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Autopatrolled[edit]

Hi Ettore, nice work especially the pictures, I've taken the liberty of setting your account as wp:Autopatrolled as you have already demonstrated an ability to submit articles that are referenced and on notable subjects. PS we have users browsing on many devices from mobiles to large screens, so please be sparing when you override the defaults and set image sizes at 250 px. Cheers and happy editing ϢereSpielChequers 12:07, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

New articles[edit]

I have noticed the new articles you have been creating recently, and I have a few notes for any new articles you make on biological subjects:

  • The spelling "Fauna europea" is wrong; it should be "Fauna Europaea".
  • Including an unitalicised scientific name in the taxobox not only causes it to appear in roman (not italic) type, but also prevents the template from automatically italicising the article title. Please either use, for example, |name=''Agapanthia cardui'' and add {{italic title}} to the start of the article, or avoid filling the name= field altogether.
  • It would be useful if you could include the appropriate category for the year the species were described, such as [[Category:Animals described in 1767]].
  • Be careful when citing authorities for scientific names that neither add nor remove parentheses; they carry specific meaning, and some of your articles have been wrong in this regard (at Agapanthia cardui, for instance, the synonym should not read "Cerambyx cardui (Linnaeus, 1767)", but "Cerambyx cardui Linnaeus, 1767", without the parentheses).
  • It would also be useful if you could label all very short articles as stubs, by using the appropriate stub template (e.g. {{Cerambycidae-stub}}).
  • Finally, it would be great if you could add the template {{WikiProject Insects|class=stub|importance=low}} to the talk page of each insect article you start. This helps the relevant project keep track of which articles need further work.

Carrying out these few small tasks would take the load off other editors, and allow the encyclopaedia to grow more smoothly. Thank you. --Stemonitis (talk) 19:01, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

February 2011[edit]

Information.png Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not replace pages with blank content, as you did with this edit to Talk:Trichius fasciatus, as this is confusing to readers. The page's content has been restored for now. If there is a problem with the page, it should be edited or reverted to a previous version if possible; if you think the page should be removed entirely, see further information. Thank you.

Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Laphria with this edit. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Acather96 (talk) 15:34, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Mixing country names with geographical areas[edit]

Hi, good work! But one small correction if you please. When referring to distribution, as an example, you have tended to use something like "Spain, Italy, British Isles, Portugal, Belgium". Be aware four of the five names used refer to country names, while one - "British Isles" - refers to a geographical area. Can you please correct the articles to use one of the other - either country names of geographical areas please? I'd do it myself, but I have a stalker that reverts and calls it POV-pushing. Thank you. --HighKing (talk) 13:23, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi - any chance you can take a look at the articles in question please? For example Thecophora atra. What source were you using for the distribution? Thanks - and great work! --HighKing (talk) 21:07, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
Hi, can you please acknowledge these messages? Not sure if you have seen them, don't want to escalate unless I'm sure one way or the other. --HighKing (talk) 11:54, 24 April 2011 (UTC)


Hi, HighKing! Thank you very much for your suggestion! I will follow it in the future! Ciao. Ettore

Thank you, it would also be great if you reviewed some of your earlier articles. Very excellent photos btw! Makes a big difference to articles. --HighKing (talk) 23:38, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Gastropod articles![edit]

Thank you so much for creating a series of new gastropod articles with photos you created yourself! I am myself very interested in this kind of thing, and so I was very happy to see your work! Since it looks as if you have a special interest in gastropods or their shells, I wanted to give you this invitation:

Wikiproject GastropodsGuilfordiayoka.jpg
I've noticed your edits on pages relating to Gastropods; perhaps you'd be interested in joining WikiProject Gastropods?
If you would like more information, please visit the project page or the project talk page.


All very best wishes, Invertzoo (talk) 22:01, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

A new member![edit]

A Barnstar!
Welcome!

A very big WELCOME to WikiProject Gastropods to you, Ettore, a new member! We are delighted that you decided to join the Project! Thank you for the new gastropod articles you started, and for the new gastropod images you have uploaded to Commons. We need all the help we can get because gastropods is such a large topic and we have only a few active members. So welcome again to Wikipedia and to the gastropods project, Invertzoo (talk) 23:06, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

If there is anything at all that I may be able to help you with, or if you have any questions at all, please do go ahead and let me know by leaving me a note on my talk page. You are really doing surprisingly well considering that you are still quite new here, but I know from my own experience that it can be a bit hard at first when one is getting used to working on Wikipedia and having to learn all of the bits and pieces you need to know.

By the way, when you leave a note on someone's talk page, give the note a heading, just for clarity, and also sign your name by putting 4 of these " ~ " right at the end after your message. When you write 4 of those wiggly things called tildes, then after you hit save, the software will automatically convert the four tildes into your signature with live links (blue links) to your user page and your user talk page. Invertzoo (talk) 23:16, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Starting your user page[edit]

Hello Ettore, I took a liberty, I hope you don't mind... I started your user page by adding a userbox saying that you are a member of Project Gastropods. You will see that now there is something on your user page, the links to your user page show up as blue links rather than red ones. If you like, you can put onto your user page any small pieces of info you want to mention about yourself, or you can delete the userbox I put on and leave it blank. Most of us have a little something on our user page, some of us have a lot. Either way, it doesn't matter. Very best wishes to you, Invertzoo (talk) 22:43, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Edit summaries?[edit]

Hi again, just one small thing? When you do an edit, before you save, it is really helpful if you can put a couple of words into the edit summary slot, to the right above the "Save page" button. You can just say, add a link, or fix an error, expand intro, or similar. Thanks so much and all good wishes, Invertzoo (talk) 01:11, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

One important question[edit]

Hello again Ettore. You must excuse me, but I have to tell you about something, and ask you one very important thing. Since you are fairly new here you may not know this.

Your new articles are very nice, and your photos are very good to have. However, the sentences you use in your Wikipedia articles must not be copied from a book or an online publication. The information has to be completely re-written by you. Even if you copy something and change a few words around here and there, or tweak the sentence a little bit, that is not enough. The sentences you use in your articles have to be your own expression of the facts you have read and understood. Otherwise there is a copyright problem, which we take very seriously on Wikipedia. There are some sources out there that are in the public domain, and thus can be copied, but this is not true of most sources.

So, I need to ask you: have you been copying the content of your articles from somewhere else?

If that was the case, we can help you rewrite the content of the ones you have already done, because maybe your English is not quite up to the task. But please do let me know ASAP.

All good wishes, Invertzoo (talk) 14:02, 22 May 2011 (UTC)


Thank you so very much for answering my question, and for not being offended by my question Ettore. I am delighted to hear that you are writing all the prose yourself! You are doing a good job of it I must say! And yes of course you can continue as you are. I will try to check your new articles as you create them and see if any small things need fixing. I hope I am not snowing you under with so many suggestions about one thing and another. ALl good wishes, Invertzoo (talk) 01:45, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Galleries[edit]

Hello again! I also have a small suggestion.. Since you are creating articles with a lot of pictures, I am wondering if you are familiar with the "gallery" option. With this option you create a gallery in which the pictures are perfectly positioned, regardless of the screen resulotion you are using (the way you were making a gallery is also okay, but the gallery displayes rather messy on the computer I am using). I changed your new Melanargia article using this. See how it looks here:

Cheers! Ruigeroeland (talk) 14:40, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

OK, I will do it in the future! Thank you. Ciao. Ettore

Melanargia[edit]

I stumbled upon a document with a revision of the Melanargia genus. You might want to add the info to your article to make it up-to-date? See: Molecular systematics and phylogeny of the ‘Marbled Whites’ (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae, Satyrinae, Melanargia Meigen) Cheers Ruigeroeland (talk) 10:43, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

ok! thank you. Ettore

New articles need moving[edit]

Your recent creations Alectoria (Genus of lichens) and Odontura (Genus of fungi) need moving to the lowercase of genus: Alectoria (genus of lichens) and Odontura (genus of fungi) to comply with typical WP naming policies, cheers, 94.8.98.105 (talk) 04:41, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Can I ask why you put Topana (commune) as needing additional references since August 2008 when you made the article today? Also you seem to be having trouble signing, you do so by adding ~~~~ at the end of your sentences, 94.8.98.105 (talk)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Sorry to keep posting like this (you're doing fantastic work here), when you create species articles you should put {{italictitle}} at the top of them because they're Latin names. Also for Odontura (genus of fungi) and the other, you created another article when you should have WP:MOVED the page using the arrow next to edit and View history, this keeps the edit history with the article. Okay, tutelage over. Sorry to preach and wish the best here, 94.8.98.105 (talk) 05:47, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your suggestions! Ciao. Ettore

Habra et al[edit]

Hi Ettore, I thought I'd drop by and let you know about some policies to keep in mind when moving and naming pages.

  • When naming an article, always use the simplest title possible. For instance, instead of Habra (Genus of katydids), since there is only one genus named Habra, you can use Habra (genus). If there were more than one genus, you would use Habra (katydid genus). Also, the bit in parentheses should only be capitalized if it is a proper name. This is all covered at WP:AT (and WP:PRECISION is particularly useful).
  • You should never rename an article by cutting the content from one article and inserting it into another. This is referred to as a cut-and-paste move, and will always get reverted. (See WP:CUTPASTE) The reason for this is when you cut content from one article and paste it into another, the revision history of that article is lost. If you need any help moving a page, you can ask me or at WP:RM.
  • I reverted your changes to Habra, but not solely because it was a cut-and-paste move. Also, when creating a disambiguation page, we have to consider WP:PRIMARYTOPIC - that is, whether any one article is a much more likely search term than all the others. For instance, there are several towns, movies, songs, etc. with the name "Texas", but we have the US state at that location because, by far, that is what people are searching for when they type "Texas" into the search box. (Everything else can be found at Texas (disambiguation).) Similarly, for "Habra", the town is much more likely than a genus that doesn't even have an article yet. Further, this case is covered by WP:TWODABS, which states that a hatnote is preferable when there are only two claimants for a title.

Phew! That's a lot to read. I hope you don't feel overwhelmed or discouraged; good taxo editors are valuable to Wikipedia and we definitely want you with us. Please let me know if you have any questions. Cheers, --JaGatalk 17:52, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

I really appreciate your suggestions!! ... and I will follow them in the future. Thank you. Ettore

Invitation to help assess Wikipedia:WikiProject Gastropods[edit]

Hi. I am inviting members of some WikiProjects to take part in evaluating their projects in order to help the Wikimedia Foundation better understand such projects from the inside, to encourage reflection on best practices, and to compile a list of best practices as recommended by a number of projects. I am contacting you because you are listed as an active member of Wikipedia:WikiProject Gastropods. Having witnessed that project's work in the past in my volunteer capacity, I'd very much like to include it. I hope that you will have time and interest in participating. As much or as little as you would like to supply would be gratefully received. The assessment questions are posted at Wikipedia:WikiProject Gastropods/Self-assessment. I will myself steer clear of the page until after any discussion seems to have become dormant, at which point I will ask questions to make sure that I am developing a good overview of opinions. Thanks. --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 13:02, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Autogamy[edit]

In a number of articles you created (great work, by the way), such as Convolvulus cantabrica, you include a sentence like this:

"The flowers are hermaphrodite (self fertilization or autogamy) and pollinated by insects (entomogamy)."

The sentence doesn't make sense to me, but I'm really not sure what you mean by it so I can't suggest a re-write. Merely because the flowers are hermaphrodite (as most angiosperm flowers are) doesn't mean that it self-fertilizes. Do you mean "The hermaphrodite flowers are either self-fertilized (autogamy) or pollinated by insects (entomogamy)?" If so, this would have to be supported by some reference/source. Peter coxhead (talk) 09:44, 14 September 2011 (UTC)


First of all thank you for your feedback and I would appreciate any your suggestion that you would like in the future give me. As you can easily assess, I'm not a botanist but only an amateur in the field. What I really wanted to write - and it was badly expressed - is probably related only to one old article. With the technique of copy and paste the mistake has been afterwards transferred in several other ones. I am consoled by the fact that also the evolution works in such a way!

I am going to delete all the incorrect sentences “(self-fertilization or autogamy)”.

Ciao. Ettore

Some other suggestions:
  • You usually leave a space before a reference tag, i.e. you write something like ... has bristly leaves. <ref>...</ref>. Although I tend to agree that this looks better, MOS:REFPUNC is clear that there should never be such a space, i.e. it should be either ... has bristly leaves<ref>...</ref> and ... or ... has bristly leaves.<ref>...</ref>.
  • MOS:IMAGES says "Avoid sandwiching text between two images that face each other, or between an image and an infobox." So in a short article, all the images need to go into a gallery to avoid sandwiching.
  • I don't think that this sentence "The biological form of Epilobium fleischeri is hemicryptophyte scapose" is very helpful to readers! Either the two terms "hemicryptophyte" and "scapose" need to be explained (best) or wikilinked. "Hemicryptophyte" is explained at Raunkiær_plant_life-form#Hemicryptophytes so you could put [[Raunkiær_plant_life-form#Hemicryptophytes|hemicryptophyte]]. "Scapose" doesn't seem to be explained in Wikipedia, but when you search for it, you get mostly articles you created...
I repeat that you are doing great work. The coverage of European plants is quite thin compared to North American plants, and you are improving this. Peter coxhead (talk) 10:59, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Please correct link to disambiguation page[edit]

When you edited the Ansellia article, you added a link to Congo, which is a disambiguation page rather than an article. If you know from the source material whether it's referring to the Republic of the Congo or the Democratic Republic of the Congo, could you please edit your link to point to the appropriate page? Most common usage referring to the country simply as "Congo" is about Republic of the Congo, not the DRC, but I didn't want to assume that in this case since you're probably more familiar with the topic. Thanks! LarryJeff (talk) 15:14, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

  • If this invitation also appears on other accounts you may have, please complete the survey once only.
  • If this has been sent to you in error and you have never patrolled new pages, please ignore it.

Please click HERE to take part.
Many thanks in advance for providing this essential feedback.


You are receiving this invitation because you have patrolled new pages. For more information, please see NPP Survey

Kudzu[edit]

Hi, please don't alter the names of plants if you are not sufficiently familiar with how to format their names. The italics are important. "var." is not set in italics. Pueraria montana lobata is not a correct way to refer to a variety. "species = P. montana var. lobata" is wrong (that's a variety, not a species). "binomial = Pueraria montana var. lobata" is wrong (that's a trinomial). Thank you. Nadiatalent (talk) 20:00, 1 November 2011 (UTC)


OK! THANK YOU. CIAO. ETTORE

Hi,

thank you for writing Galactites tomentosa!

While slightly expanding Galactites, I found your taxobox information with the synonyms very interesting. One of the synonyms you mentioned is Galactites elegans (All.) Soldano, should this not be Galactites elegans (All.) Nyman ex Soldano?

Moreover in Wikispecies the synonym Cladognathus giraffa appers with a question mark. Too much for a simple amateur in entomology like me! I think you should solve the problem by yourself. Thank you again.

Ciao from Genoa, Italy. Ettore

Ciao Ettore Yes synonymy is difficult. I find many problems myself and different entomologists have different views.I asked for a redirect on the page girafa page. So you are in Genova as was Giacimo Doria (and now his museum).Great place for entomology and entomologists. Ireland is too rainy. Very best regards Notafly (talk) 21:57, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

OK. I have not butterflies habitat pictures for the time being. I will take these pictures next months and I will add them as far as I have. Ciao. Ettore

Many thanks. Surprising but the butterfly pics are much more commonly taken.

Chrysolina[edit]

Good day. In your recent edition in this (Chrysolina) article you add species list, but could you tell me how can it be when one (Chrysolina lepida) species is included into two subgenera Allochrysolina and Chrysolinopsis. If you can, please correct it. Thank you, Afro-Braz-Ilian talk 10:47, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

It should be a mistake of "Fauna Europaea". In effect in "Biolib" (cfr. http://www.biolib.cz/en/taxon/id241821/) C. lepida appears in Subgenus "Allochrysolina", while a subgenus "Chrysolinopsis" it is not present. Thank You.

Hi! I'm serving as the wikipedian-in-residence at the Smithsonian Institution Archives until June! One of my goals as resident, is to work with Wikipedians and staff to improve content on Wikipedia about people who have collections held in the Archives - most of these are scientists who held roles within the Smithsonian and/or federal government. I thought you might like to participate since you are interested in the sciences! Sign up to participate here and dive into articles needing expansion and creation on our to-do list. Feel free to make a request for images or materials at the request page, and of course, if you share your successes at the outcomes page you will receive the SIA barnstar!

re Northern Red Bishop[edit]

Sorry this is probably the wrong place to post this. I think that the photos of the Female or non-breeding male bird in this article is in fact a Village weaver. I think you may have posted the it.

Hadrosaur image[edit]

Thanks for the clarification.

Thanks for the sea slug articles![edit]

Thanks very much Ettore for the nice new sea slug articles, they are much appreciated. Just one small thing, do you think you could add the project template to the talk page when you make a new gastropod article? For species that would usually be something like this:

{{WikiProject Gastropods|class=stub|importance=low|needs-photo=no}}

If that is too much to do, please just add

{{WikiProject Gastropods}}

Either way your article will automatically be added to the numbers on the chart showing the gastropod project article statistics.

The wrong cockle (not your fault)[edit]

Hello Hechtonicus, aka Ettore,

I wanted to explain to you that just now I had to create a new stub for Laevicardium elatum, because the image of the shell that the "Museo Civico di Storia Naturale di Milano" had labelled as Trachycardium magnum now known as Acrosterigma magnum from Florida and the Caribbean, is actually Laevicardium elatum from West Mexico.

I happen to know that because I have collected both species, one in West Mexico and the other in the Caribbean Sea, and although they are both large cockles, they are actually both very distinctive-looking, so I can easily tell one from the other. If you want to see what L. elatum looks like, look here:

http://vianetconchology.com/index.php?main_page=4&parent=1412&parent0=48&parent1=3&parent2=1&parent3=0&level=3

And to see what Acrosterigma magna looks like, look here:

http://www.xenophora.org/Iconographie/Cardiidae/Acrosterigma%20magnum%201/Cadre%20Acrosterigma%20magnum%201.html

I had better try to tell the museum that they have a mistake in the labeling. Or perhaps you would like to?

All best wishes, Invertzoo (talk) 01:03, 5 January 2013 (UTC)


Hi Invertzoo. Thank you for your explanations. I have to point out that the specimen is labelled as "Laevicardium magnum" from Florida, that I translated as "Acrosterigma magnum". Does it make any difference? Then I will try personally to inform the museum, when I will return there. Thank you again. Ettore

Well, that shell is from a species in the genus Laevicardium, the egg cockles; that part is correct. But there is no egg cockle called Laevicardium magnum anywhere in the world. There is a large cockle called ''Acrosterigma magnum in the Caribbean faunal zone, from Florida to Brazil (Western Atlantic). That one is called the magnum cockle, or magnum prickly cockle, and it is large, but is only 87 mm maximum size, whereas Laevicardium elatum (the giant egg cockle) from the Panamic Province (Eastern Pacific) can be up to 190 mm in length -- that's really large!

Usually it's not possible to speak to anyone on staff when you visit a museum as a member of the general public. You may need to find out who are the staff members in Invertebrate Zoology, and then find out who is in charge of malacology, and then email that person to let them know. Then they will need to talk to someone in the exhibits department and get the label changed. You are welcome to use my name and even to tell them my email address. Invertzoo (talk) 21:50, 5 January 2013 (UTC)


I see here that Monica Leonardi is the staff member who takes care of the malacology section of Invertebrate Zoology there. There is a link to her email address. Invertzoo (talk) 22:01, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

I undertand the problem. I think that you are the only person entitled to contact Monica Leonardi and explain everything. I prefer not to be involved in any mode. Let me know the results. Thank you again. Ettore

I wrote to Monica. I will let you know if I hear back from her. Thanks, Invertzoo (talk) 23:56, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Referencing style[edit]

I found your articles and have enjoyed reading some of them. I started tagging them for needed improvement because I feel the referencing could be improved in two ways, but I decided to stop tagging and discuss the referencing style with you. Typically, so that other editors can verify that the text in an article is supported by reliable sources, in-line citations are placed in the text to show which reference supports a given fact or sentence. Your articles such as Anoplophora sollii list one or more sources at the bottom as references, but typically have no proper inline citations. Sometimes you include in an infobox the last name of an author and the year of publication, but this makes it difficult for another reader or editor to find and verify your sources. Please take a look at Wikipedia:Citing sources which is a guideline for including references in articles. Even if every biologist in the world knows exactly where to find some reference like (Hope, 1839), it would help the general reader and nonspecialist to include in the References section a complete reference with his first name and the details of what book or journal, the name of the work, etc as the citation guideline calls for. If there is a project for insect articles which has a referencing style which does not call for inline references or for complete bibliographic information, I would be very grateful if you could show me a link to it. Thanks again for your hard work creating all the interesting articles. Edison (talk) 04:06, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

In the biographical article for Frederick William Hope, I find no mention of an 1839 publication. Where do the various references get that year in reference to his discovery or classification of Anoplophora sollii ? Regards. Edison (talk) 04:24, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Hello, Edison, Many thanks for your suggestions. As soon as possible I will do the necessary improvements and clarifications in my future and in old articles. Ciao.

A bowl of strawberries for you![edit]

Erdbeerteller01.jpg Thanks for all the nice new fossil bivalve articles! Invertzoo (talk) 00:46, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Just a few points[edit]

  • Is Baluchicardia a genus or a subgenus? You have 8 of the species listed as if it were a subgenus. if some authors treat it as a subgenus and others treat it as a genus then you need to say so in the intro.
  • If possible, please remember to add the bivalve project template on the talk pages of new bivalve articles.
  • Genus and species articles need the title to be in italics, family articles do not.
  • It is worth learning how to do at least a primitive version of an inline citation. Honestly it is not difficult. For online sources, all you need to do is this: after the info you want to reference put this <ref> at the start, and </ref> at the end, and in between those two put the name of the site, the exact link to that page and the day you accessed it. And under your References heading just put {{reflist}} and it should all work fine. It really is not difficult to do a primitive version like this. Give it a whirl and you will see. And then over time if you like you can gradually refine your technique. Any questions, please feel free to ask me. :) Invertzoo (talk) 15:30, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Any questions? Like I said, don't feel embarrassed -- please feel free to ask me. Invertzoo (talk) 15:30, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

This year I intended to go to Pisa again but I got a respiratory infection on the aircraft flight so I had to return earlier than I had hoped. A disappointment because last year I had no spare batteries to take as many pics as I would have liked of Certosa di Pisa museum (a few miles from Pisa itself) [7] especially of those I labelled OrtoBotanicoPisaMeraviglie *see ps. an exhibition of early natural history studies in Italy. I hope it is still there.If you have not seen this wonderful museum you must go.If only to see and image the models of native Mollusca [8] and two close ups with the same title. Thankyou again and very warm regards Robert Notafly (talk) 20:17, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

  • PS.Camera delle Meraviglie Room of wonders (Wunderkammer) -a sixteenth-century style collection of naturalia (relics of the three kingdoms of nature), curiosa (strange and exotic objects) and artificialia (artifacts from different eras and places icludingtwo beautiful gold machined shells, a necklace of teeth of monkey, a hand of coral, a tooth of narwhal traditionally considered the Unicorn Horn, and a human skull with applied over a sprig of coral. In 1596, Grand Duke Ferdinand I of Tuscany established the Museum of Natural History of the University of Pisa, transferring specimens from the Florentine palaces of the Medici, particularly from the Uffizi. This was expanded to serve the natural history faculties of the University of Pisa. Initially, the gallery was in the botanic gardens (Orto botanico di Pisa). The oldest collections in the museum are Niccolò Gualtieri’s shells.

Ciao Robert I knew the existence of this museum, but I never got to go there. I have to do it.
