A Weekend of Pride

Maltese Falcon yacht

An interesting coincidence this weekend in San Francisco. Two big events, two celebrations of the fruit of human ingenuity, creativity and technology. Both are the result of the vision of Italian minds.

After 8 years or renovation the new California Academy of Sciences, designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, opened its door to awe thousands of visitors with its innovative architecture and its spectacular exhibits.

At 2 pm on Saturday, the 289-foot Maltese Falcon, the largest private sail-propelled yacht in the world, designed by Italian shipyard Perini Navi, made its entrance into the San Francisco Bay through the Golden Gate, sporting its beautiful computer-controlled sail system.

Things to be proud of.
