Saturday 6th October – Visit of the Villa Nobel in San Remo, Italy, followed by Lunch

Welcome to the Villa Nobel, the home of Alfred Nobel, the Swedish scientist famous throughout the world as the inventor of dynamite and the founder of the Nobel Prize.

Our October event will take place in San Remo, known as a year-round health resort since 1861. San Remo is also famous for the flowers grown there and exported to continental Europe.

We will meet at Villa Nobel for a guided tour of Alfred Nobel’s home where he lived between 1891 and until his death on 10th December 1896. The date is remembered every year through the solemn Nobel Prize giving ceremony in Stockholm. The exterior of the villa carries influences from architecture more widespread in the Orient. The Moorish-style villa was built on a large park and formerly owned by a Polish poet, Josephy Ignacy Kraszewsky who named it Mio Nido, “My Nest”. This new home was for Alfred Nobel, a refuge from the political storm he left behind in France. He named it Villa Nobel, which became the center of his private and business life.

We will see a reproduction of Nobel´s laboratory where particular focus is placed on his experiments with nitroglycerin. When he died, he had 93 factories in 20 different countries producing 66.500 tons of dynamite.

After an interesting guided tour in English, we will walk across the street to Villa Sylva to enjoy a delicious and hearty Italian lunch.

Timings: Saturday 6th October

The guided tour starts at 10 a.m. We will meet in the lobby of Villa Nobel where Dr. Enza Manna (employee) and the guide will greet us.
