Pompeii: the greatest tragedy of ancient world

In un video appena rilasciato, registrato negli scavi di Pompei per TEDx, Alberto Angela racconta la tragedia del 79 d.C. in inglese, condensandola in 18 minuti, per raggiungere chi all’estero non conosce l’italiano.

Il titolo della conferenza è “Pompeii: the greatest tragedy of the ancient world” (Pompei, la più grande tragedia del mondo antico). TEDx è un programma di conferenze realizzate in teatro con interventi che seguono il principio delle idee da condividere.

Raccogliamo l’appello del noto divulgatore scientifico affinchè “questo video viaggi lontano sul web per raccontare a più stranieri possibile il nostro meraviglioso patrimonio culturale“. Di seguito la descrizione in inglese sul canale YouTube “TEDx Talks”.

Alberto Angela talked about the greatest tragedy of Pompeii of 79 BC. Alberto accompanied his father, Italian TV announcer Piero Angela, on his trips ever since he was a child, something that allowed him to learn many European languages and to acquire a cosmopolitan culture. After being a student in France, he enrolled in a course of Natural Sciences at the University “La Sapienza” of Rome, finally graduating with 110/110 and a prize for his thesis. He also studied at multiple American universities, where he took courses of specialisation from Harvard, Columbia and UCLA and further focused on palaeontology and paleoanthropology. Once out of university he started working in the research field participating in paleoanthropologic digs in various places in the world, among which Zaire, Ishango, Tanzania, Olduvai and Laetoli, Sultanate of the Oman, Mongolia, and the desert of the Gobi“.
