I numeri di Fibonacci by Laura Garavaglia
(Leonardo Pisano detto Fibonacci)
Quel ponte tra oriente e occidente
costruito sui numeri.
capivi la grandezza dei commercianti arabi
e il tuo genio stupiva gli astanti
alla corte di Federico II.
L’astratta perfezione di quei segni
la successione magica nascosta
nella bellezza alchemica della conchiglia
e l’enigma del falco nel suo volo
descritti tempo dopo da Pacioli,
I numeri di Fibonacci
Translated by Jack Hines
That bridge between the Orient and the Occident is built on numbers. You understood the grandness of Arabic traders, and your genius amazed the bystanders at the court of Fredrick II. The abstract perfection of those signs, the magical succession hidden in the alchemical beauty of the conch, and the enigma of the falcon in its flight describe time after Pacioli, divine proportions.
Translated by Samantha Keefe
The bridge between east and west was built on numbers.
Understand the greatness of Arabic merchants of the amazed bystanders under Federico II.

The hidden magical succession
In the hidden shell of alchemy
And the mysterious falcon in flight
