Nardini Ilio (Carrara (MS)-Italy) is a very special and sensitive inventor who created hundreds of very interesting and useful inventions related to the education environment. He has been working for years in a school institute for the handicapped and took inspiration from his long experience in order to create a lot of instruments allowing not only the handicapped, but any child under 6, to learn physics, mathematics, stars’ movement and much more, simply by playing with funny and stimulating learning instruments that lead to excellent results, as Mr. Nardini has verified from his long experimentation. Among these inventions, we find an apparatus to learn to distinguish numbers and numerical quantities. As a matter of fact, for children it’s very difficult to realize concepts and understand the value of 4 compared with 8 even before realizing and distinguishing the different numbers one from the other. For this reason, Mr. Nardini took his cue from a simple but very effective intuition that leads him to create an instrument where the numbers, and the relative blanks, are larger according to the number they represent: in such a way, 8 is materially larger than 6, but smaller than 10 and so on. In addition, this invention has a particular structure: it’s equipped with a series of drawers by means of which it’s possible to work different selections allowing the child to learn to distinguish even numbers from odd numbers, or group together a series of numbers and much more. This instrument, produced in wood, as this material entails "heat", is very useful, because it allows children to learn while playing. It indeed feeds their mind and really helps anyone needs to learn new things. The inventor is looking for an investor (even public) interested in putting into production his invention, but he wishes above all to collaborate with a company capable of exploiting his several inventions, selecting, from a commercial point of view, the most effective ones and producing them, so that everyone could benefit from it. On the other hand, it’s a great deal for companies too, because Nardini’s inventions are ones of a kind and should be exported even abroad. Our best wishes to this extraordinary and romantic inventor!
