Nuove edizioni per i Predatori

Doppia edizione della mostra scientifica che organizzo ormai da tanti anni! Un’edizione per la mostra “Predatori del Microcosmo”, questa volta al Museo Civico di Storia Naturale di Morbegno (SO) ed una per “Zanne, corazze e veleni” a Roma presso il Museo Civico di Zoologia.
