Construct the models of the ornithopter and the aerial screw, and then read the book to discover all the secrets of flight!

• The kit contains all the necessary pieces to build two flying machines. • The book explains the secrets of flying, based on da Vinci’s studies and his drawings and designs of flying machines. • The machines faithfully reproduce da Vinci’s designs, and they really work!

TodAy The tower was to be dismantled twenty years after its construction, and many Parisians of the time did not mind: the ‘Iron Lady’ was, in fact, considered a modern ‘disgrace’ among the historic buildings of Paris. In reality, however, the tower had met enormous success with the public and became a symbol of the city. The tower was therefore not demolished, also because its summit in the meanwhile had been equipped with a radio antenna essential for telecommunications. Today the Eiffel Tower is the most photographed monument in the world.

In 1889, Paris hosted the International Exposition, or World’s Fair, a global event that introduced the different scientific and engineering inventions of the nineteenth century. The Eiffel Tower, designed by Gustave Eiffel, was built at the entrance of the exhibition area near the Seine, at the Champ de Mars. Its construction, which lasted two years, formed an iron structure weighing 10,000 tonnes and with a height of 324 metres.

The French capital is one of the most famous cities in the world, renowned for its history, art, culture, cuisine and romantic ambiance—a wonderful city visited by millions. Intersected by the Seine, one of the most important rivers of France, Paris was founded many centuries ago by the Romans upon the ancient settlements of Gallic tribes and was given the Latin name Lutetia. Throughout its history, Paris has grown significantly, today becoming the most populated city in France. Among its many national and cultural symbols, recognised throughout the world, are the celebrated Gothic cathedral of Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, the prestigious avenue of the Champs-Élysées, the basilica of Sacré-Coeur (Sacred Heart) and the Georges Pompidou Centre. There is also the lively atmosphere of the Latin Quarter, with its many bistros and restaurants, and of Montmartre, where artists, writers and musicians live and work. The true national symbol of Paris, however, is the Eiffel Tower, which dominates the panorama of the city.

LA VILLE LUMIÈRE

ThE EIffEL TowER

Paris, the ‘City of Lights’, is divided into twenty arrondissements, or ‘departments’. The first is located at the centre of the city, and from there the arrondissements spiral outward in a clockwise direction. Districts develop along the banks of the Seine, which divides the city into two zones: the Right Bank with its major historical monuments and the Left Bank with its intellectual and artistic neighbourhoods.

FROM CATERPILLAR TO BUTTERFLY The birth of a butterfly is a small miracle of nature: this spectacular creature with multi-coloured wings, in fact, is only the last stage of a long transformation, which starts with a simple caterpillar. The process of metamorphosis begins with the laying of the eggs; after 3 to 5 days, a caterpillar is born. To become a butterfly, the caterpillar works for about a week to spin itself a silk cocoon. Within its casing, the caterpillar becomes, after about ten days, a chrysalis; when the cocoon finally breaks open, out comes a beautiful butterfly.

CATERPILLAR The caterpillar has a soft, full body with small legs positioned under the abdomen that help it move. The caterpillar grows quickly and therefore needs a lot of food: eating leaves and even the empty eggshell from which it was born.

CHRYSALIS The caterpillar produces a silk thread and spins a casing around its body that surrounds and firmly attaches it. From within, the chrysalis develops, which, when mature, already has the head and abdomen of a typical butterfly.

BUTTERFLY When the butterfly is ready, it breaks open the cocoon and flies away. Butterflies have six legs and four wings, two major and two minor; the wings may assume very different sizes and colours depending on the tiny scales that cover them.

Irena Trevisan Luna Scortegagna The baby chaffinch didn’t lose heart and moved on to the Zebra. “Dear Zebra, can you help me fly?” he asked, full of hope. “Sweet bird, galloping is much easier than flying. Look, I can run like the wind and escape my predators, not to mention these annoying flies!”

He went to speak to the ElEphant. “Excuse me, you wouldn't know how to fly, would you?” he asked. “No, little one, but with my trunk I can spray water, trumpet, and gather food from the highest branches. I certainly don’t need to fly!”

The gnu was the little chaffinch’s last chance. “We don’t fly,” the wise animal replied, rustling through the long grass. “But our call helps us to recognize each other and never lose anyone from the herd. Maybe you should do the same - follow your instinct.”

She fluttered after some fluffy feathers. “You’re so small!” she cried.

It started to rain all of a sudden, and Firefly put up her umbrella. “I know! A drop of water is the smallest thing I know.” What a pity that the first drop was followed by another, then by a downpour, then by a big, noisy storm.

“Careful what you say,” a big owl warned her. “Look at my wings, see how big they are? They are made of feathers and quills, behold their wonder!” Disheartened, the firefly had to agree.

“Poor me, they’re not minute little drops after all,” the poor little bug whimpered, seeking shelter from the thunder.

Downhearted, the little bug decided to go no further. She stopped in a large meadow and listened, sadly, to the cicadas. All of a sudden, she saw another firefly, just like her, and another, then ten more, until the whole field was lit up by a blaze of light. Mesmerized, the wonderful truth struck Firefly

“We may be small, and almost insignificant, but look at the magic we can work when we are all together we illuminate the night, bring light to the forest and have finally stopped it from being so scary!”
