Posted on September 9, 2013 by Editorial Staff

When we discover something, we usually want to share it with The Harlow’s readers; there are treasures that cannot be kept secret. One of these, comes from Italy. The man who created it was a philosopher a mathematician a master in theoretical medicine, a scientist and an astronomer. A real fruitful and erudite man. This person was Fortunio Liceti. All thourgh his life, Liceti has been proving knowledge, curiosities,  a “wunderkammer” of  doctrines. He was a renaissance man and friend to Galileo. The Harlow gently invites you to browse and discover his masterpieces. To us, the best one is ‘De monstrorum causis, natura et differentiis’  a study and work on monsters, special creatures with fantabulous engraving and drawings. A pamphlet on humankind in all its monstrous shapes.
