Dear colleagues:

Please find the attached announcement from Vladimiro Valerio regarding the
opening celebrations of the bicentenary of the death of geographer and
cartographer Giovanni Antonio Rizzi-Zannoni (1736-1814).

On the 24th of January a plaque will be placed at the Castel Sant'Elmo in
Naples, Italy, to mark the spot used by Rizzi-Zannoni to establish the
meridian line and center of the coordinates for his new map of the Kingdom
of Naples (1787-1812). The ceremony at Castel Sant'Elmo will inaugurate a
year of celebratory activities honoring the Italian geographer with renewed
study of his life and works.

Thank you.
