Charles Darwin / Zweite Weltreise
Am 9. Februar 2009 wird Charles Darwin symbolisch seine zweite Weltreise im Natural History Museum in London vollenden.
Das Projekt Charles Darwin / Die Zweite Weltreise wurde von Luca Novelli, Verfasser von wissenschaftlichen Buechern fuer Jugendliche, im Fruehjahr 2005 vorgeschlagen und von WWF, dem italienischen Komitee von ICOM (International Council for Museums-UNESCO) und dem Naturhistorischen Museum in Mailand, gesponsert.
Darwin 2 brachte seinen Erfinder und eine kleine Gruppe von Freunden und Wissenschaftlern an den Plaetzen wo sich Darwin zwischen 1831 und 1836, waehrend seiner Reise an Bord des Beagle, aufgehalten hatte.
Um dieses Projekt zu verwirklichen wurden zwischen 2005 und 2008 fast 90.000 Klm. per Flug, Bus, Auto, Schlauchboot zurueckgelegt. Die Reise ergab drei XIX.Jahrhundert-aehnliche Notizbuecher, die - wie die bekannten Moleskine - mit einem Gummiband versehen sind.
Am 9. Februar werden Kopien der drei Buecher der Bibliothek des Natural History Museums ueberreicht, gelegentlich des Besuches von Luca Novelli und seinen Reisegefaehrten auf der Darwin gewidmeten Big Idea Ausstellung.
Zusammen mit anderen Reisenden auf Beagle ' s Kurs wird dann Darwins Geburtstag im aeltesten italienischen Restaurant La Genova in Mayfair gefeiert.

Luca Novelli's project Charles Darwin - His second voyage around the world,
arrived to Galapagos.
Next step: New Zealand and Australia
On 12th February 2009 Darwin Day will be celebrated. At that time two hundred years have passed from Darwin's birth. For this occasion Luca Novelli, the popular science author, during the year 2005 begun to make again the voyage around the world that Darwin did between December 1831 and October 1836, in order to re-write - with the knowledges we have nowadays - The voyage of the Beagle, putting the accent on the difference and changes occurred. In these first steps Luca Novelli was accompanied by Federico Canobbio Codelli, philosopher and painter, Francesco Balladore, photoreporter, and Ingrid Gattermann, naturalist. In the book, Charles Darwin in first person tells about his new voyage around the world. He describes with astonishment the innumerable novelties and the people he meets, comparing with those of his first voyage with the Beagle. He compares the glaciers of nowadays with those he saw at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. He discovers huge deforested territories and the big towns founded on the land once green and desert. He tells about evolution, but also about the climate that changes under his eyes. The first book tells about the Atlantic steps and is published in Italy by Fabbri/RCS. It will soon appear in Spain and South Korea and within the year it will be published by other European and International countries. At the Bologna Children Bookfair (April 2007) it is possible to look at the first images of the second book on Pacific Ocean steps: Chile, Peru, Galapagos. It is a 10.000 km voyage along the South American western coasts, from the glaciers falling into the ocean to Chiloe island, from the Andes to Mendoza in Argentina and Lima in Peru. And again to Galapagos, the last frontier of Nature and Land. In this book too - as planned in Charles Darwin project - The second voyage around the world - you could find the list of museums and protected areas sprang up along the Beagle route. In fact the project is sponsored by WWF and ICOM (International Council of Museums, UNESCO). Luca Novelli thanks the technical sponsors of this latest experience: Canon Italia, CapeHorn, Nokia, Tour 2000 and Tuttoturismo magazine.
