Daylight Saving Time
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME (abbreviated DST), commonly referred to as DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME in speech, and known as SUMMER TIME in some countries, is the practice of advancing clocks during summer months so that evening daylight lasts longer, while sacrificing normal sunrise times. Typically, regions that use daylight saving time adjust clocks forward one hour close to the start of spring and adjust them backward in the autumn to standard time. George Hudson proposed the idea of daylight saving in 1895. The German Empire

and Austria-Hungary

Alessandro Antonelli
ALESSANDRO ANTONELLI (July 14, 1798 – October 18, 1888) was an Italian architect of the 19th century. His most famous works are the Mole Antonelliana in Turin (named for him) and both the Novara Cathedral and the Basilica of St. Gaudenzio in Novara . BIOGRAPHY The cupola of the Basilica of San Gaudenzio, symbol of Novara, is 121 metres in height. Antonelli was born in Ghemme , near Novara. He studied in Milan and Turin, and for years he worked in the state territorial planning offices. After winning an architecture contest in the Accademia Albertina , he moved to Rome in 1828, where he studied in deep descriptive geometry. He elaborated a functional ideal of architecture, which inspired him with an ambitious plan of renovation of Turin's historical center. When he returned there in 1836 (remaining until 1857), he became professor of the Albertina Academy
