WRITER LITERATURE SCIENCE CHEMISTRY PRIMO LEVI JUDAICA 2012 MAXIMUM CARD
Country: ITALY
Condition: WRITER LITERATURE SCIENCE CHEMISTRY PRIMO LEVI JUDAICA 2012 MAXIMUM CARD
Description: Primo Levi (1919 – 1987) was a famous Italian Jewish chemist and writer. He wrote two novels and several collections of short stories, essays, and poems. His most famous works include If This Is a Man (1947) (U.S.: Survival in Auschwitz), and his memoir, The Periodic Table (1975), linked to qualities of the elements, which in 2006 the Royal Institution of Great Britain deemed the best science book ever written. As for his skills as a chemist, Levi, in his “Periodic Table” writes that his attempts to find the perfect ingredients for a small lipstick business he was partnering in war time Italy encountered problems during World war 2. He needed uric acid. And the purest supply was found in snake excrement. Unfortunately, the zoo already had contracts with the big cosmetics makers. Nonetheless Levi determined that birds were close enough relatives to reptiles, and chicken coop scraping would be an excellent alternative. His business boomed and while I will not disclose the name, it is still prospering in this 21st century. Cheap lipsticks are petroleum based but the best ones use animal excrement and human urine. So now you know what makes kiss-proof the best lipstick. Levi himself said: ““The fact that alloxan, destined to embellish ladies’ lips, would come from the excrement of chickens or pythons was a thought which didn’t trouble me for a moment. The trade of chemist… teaches you to overcome, indeed to ignore, certain revulsions that are neither necessary or congenital: matter is matter, neither noble nor vile, infinitely transformable, and its proximate origin is of no importance whatsoever.”

MEDICINE NOBEL PRIZE LAUREATE LEVI-MONTALCINI ITALY MAXIMUM CARD
Country: ITALY
Condition: MEDICINE NOBEL PRIZE LAUREATE LEVI-MONTALCINI ITALY MAXIMUM CARD
Description: Italian neurologist and 1986 Nobel Laureate for Medicine, Rita Levi-Montalcini has been honoured with a commemorative stamp issued by Italy on 16 November 2013. In 2001, she was appointed Senator for Life. She lived a long life and in 2009 became the first Nobel Prize Laureate to reach 100 years. She died in Rome three years later. Levi-Montalcini suffered because of anti-Semitic laws promulgated by the fascist regime in1938. Things got even worse when Nazi forces took over vast areas of Italy. In her reminiscences she said: “If I had not been discriminated against or had not suffered persecution, I would never have received the Nobel Prize.” The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1986 was awarded jointly to Stanley Cohen and Rita Levi-Montalcini "for their discoveries of growth factors". . Interestingly enough, of the 199 individuals honoured with the Nobel Prize in Medicine, only 10 are women. Pictured here is the limited edition Maximum Card produced for this special stamp; it depicts the great scientist receiving the Nobel Prize from King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden.
