Weekly quiz!

Readers were quick to solve the first two quizzes.

Ilectra won the initial test, identifying C. Grove Haines as the founder of Bologna Center in 1955. Eva W. won the second, identifying Kenneth Keller, who has a Ph.D in Chemical Engineering from Johns Hopkins, as the director of the Center.

So we are going to have to pick up our game if we have any hope of avoiding a lightning end to this quiz. Here we go:

What is the name of the penthouse terrace in the Bologna Center which overlooks the city skyline?
Students on the terrace in the 1950s

My goodness, that was quick. Congratulations to NVM for identifying the penthouse terrace -- all of 7 minutes after the post was published. I hope our followers will some day have the chance to enjoy the view from the terrace. If you go to, you can see the live webcam shot from the rooftop of the Bologna Center. You can see the Asinelli Tower and the Basilica of San Petronio.

...and second prize to Ana, who identified Robert Abernethy as a 1962 Johns Hopkins graduate. Ana - You get a cappuccino at Giulio's!
