By Giorgio - During the 2nd International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry held in Salice Terme, Italy from 24-28, June 2007, Fraser and Graduate Student Cari Pentecost were privileged to be given a private tour (thanks to Luigi Fabbrizzi!) of the Collegio Borromeo in Pavia, Italy on Wednesday 27 June guided by Giorgio Mellerio, Professor of Organic Chemistry and Vice-Rector of the College. They discovered that the artists treat topology with gay abandon: only 1 out of 10 images of the Borromean Rings are Brunnian links in the Collegio Borromeo. Take the tour with them here!
