"Baldo is a most colorful character, a Sicilian Groucho Marks with a stogie always drooping from his mouth or in his hand. But he's also one of the foremost archaeologists - often lecturing at the Smithsonian, Getty, and National Geographic, all of whom aid him in his innovative methods of preserving Pompeii and Herculaneum." - Estelle Shohet Brettman
