TO ALL ICCA MEMBERS, CORKSCREWS COLLECTORS AND EVERYONE INTERESTED IN THE CORKSCREWS MATTERS
This is a preview of this my new Internet Web Site, my name is Paolo de Sanctis.
I am one of founders and a member of the International Correspondence of corkscrewAddicts- the oldest and most exclusive of all corkscrew clubs.
First of all I have to thank two people without whom there would be no corkscrews nor would this website exist.
The first one was born more than two thousand years ago, the second less than 30 years ago.
Now let me tell you what this is all about:
The first man is Archimedes,whose birth was celebrated in 278 before Christ. He discovered first the "Archimedean" screw than the rack and pinion. He was the genious who discovered specific gravity by immersing a solid object in a liquid and then measuring both its weight and the volume of liquid displaced. From this he could calculate the composition of the King's Crown ( how much gold and silver there was in it). He is also credited with many other scientific inventions. He was the pioneer that paved the road for the great Leonardo Da Vinci.
The second man is my son Maximilian, who is helping me in my work and takes care of all things related to computers, e-Mail system, websites and so on. He uses the internet for regular corrispondence with his girlfriend, who is at the moment living in London, England. He is a very, very busy young man adn keeps my computer and phone lines humming what seems like day and night.
So, here is my first electronic publishing effort to provide some picture and news of my corkscrew collecting hobby. Hopefully you will enjoy it.
