Leonardo Pisano, better known as Fibonacci, was born in Italy around 1175. At that time, most people in Europe used Roman numerals.
Leonardo found a way of making our lives easier. He had learned about the Hindu-Arabic system of numerals from his experiences with the merchants and scholars in the Tuscany, his native region, and saw that this system would be optimum to perform calculations of any difficulty.
He longed for this system to be widely known all across Europe. Nowadays, and thanks to Leonardo Fibonacci, we can use Arabic numbers; we have pretty useful accounting and computing systems; there is a whole stock exchange system to predict behavior in trends; and our understanding of nature has reached unimaginable frontiers.
This collection is a tribute to Fibonacci.
