# Math Is In The Air March 2017 Column

*Hello again by Math Is In The Air. This is our review of posts written in March 2017. Before them, just a brief introduction for thos who don’t know us. Math Is In The Air (MIITA) is an italian project started at the beginning of 2015 as a blog on Applied Mathematics. It had just a few collaborators and a bunch of posts. The italian website, at the moment, has 20 collaborators and more than 130 published posts on advanced applied Mathematics. At the beginning of 2016 we started our english blog and we are trying to expand it.*

In this column we would like to present the posts we published in March 2017 in our Italian blog. I will try to give you an idea of the content and I will redirect to the original post. Are you ready?

#### 1) 01/03/2017: Mathematical Cappuccino

*by Fabrizio Calimera*

The original name of the post is “*Cappuccino Matematico*“.

This is a real story of a funny bartender who likes to write formulas and theorems on each Cappuccino!

Here is the link.

**by Francesco Bonesi**

**by Francesco Bonesi**

The original name of the post is “*Pi-ccola fiaba*“.

This is a small tale inspired by Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale. The story takes place in an amazing and magic mathematical world. This story has been made to celebrate this year’s **pi day**!

Here is the link.
