Lapo Elkann is not only heir to the Italy’s biggest auto label, Fiat, but also a passionate collector of cars and a lover of all things that go over 200km.

Zachary Abel can’t help himself when it comes to making really cool mathematical sculptures out of everyday objects:
I think about math constantly, and I see and look for math in everything around me.

Maybe I’ll even be able to learn and teach some math along the way.
