Episode 733 Professore Attilio and Stevie Kim talk with the Kids of the La Scuola d’Italia Guglielmo Marconi on this week’s episode of #everybodyneedsabitofscienza! Part 1 of 3.
More about today’s guest:
La Scuola d’Italia Guglielmo Marconi is an independent, international school located in the heart of New York and was founded by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1977. The education at La Scuola is imbued with the best features of the Italian and American educational systems. Our unique culture stems from our bicultural identity and our multicultural environment where acceptance, diversity, equity, and respect are the principles that naturally shape the life of our bilingual school.
Our students from 7th grade/2a media are very excited to be speaking with Prof. Attilio Scienza and Stevie Kim as they are currently studying earth sciences and geography. They are passionate about the topic of climate change and naturally, have visited a vineyard or two in Italy with their parents.

If you want to learn more about the Professore:
The one who checks all the facts and regulates when we mistakenly type “Verdicchio” in place of “Vermentino.” Attilio Scienza is a full professor at the University of Milan in the Department of Agricultural and Food Sciences where he teaches courses on genetic improvements to the vine; he also teaches Viticulture in the Master’s program of the University of Turin in Asti. He has been the lead for many national research projects in the field of physiology, agricultural techniques, and vine genetics. He was recently awarded the prestigious Civilta’ del Vino Prize, presented by Fondazione Masi. As the author of over 350 publications on vine and viticulture in national and international journals, you can bet he knows his stuff!
