About Angelo Mariani's Villa in Valescure

where he died- April 1, 1914

information complied from the October 30, 2015 article at the French language Angelo Mariani blog

Was built in 1888.

Was initially named Villa Andrea, in honor of his daughter Andrea, born August 8, 1874, who died in April 1894.

Mariani apparently liked that French translation of the name Andrew, having given that name's male variant to his son Andre, who also died young, being born June 2, 1871, died April 1878- the same year of the death of his mother and wife of Angelo Mariani at the age of 31.

 Andre (Andrew) Mariani 1871-1878

According to the historian Jacques Chevillard, in September 1888, Sylvain Ravel and Henri Lacreusette architects are responsible for constructing Angelo Mariani, a villa in Valescure called Andréa located near the intersection of English words which dominates a vast park of ten hectares planted with many varieties of palm trees, camellias and oleanders.

Note that architecture.

In particular, that tower and its roof design reminds me of the New Rochelle High School building in New Rochelle, New York, U.S.A., constructed 1926, and designed by Guilbert & Betelle, Architects.

As the town of New Rochelle had been initially founded by French Huguenots refugees fleeing oppression by the Roman Catholic Church following King Louis XIV's 1685 revocation of the Edict of Nantes, a French style was selected for its High School.  This school building was expanded in an architecturally faithful fashion in 1931, before receiving non-faithful additions during the 1950s and following a 1968 fire. 

Such is an uncommon architecture within the U.S.A.

New Rochelle HS 1937

NRHS was actually constructed in two phases. The first, completed in 1926, comprised the bulk of the finished school, but the front facade was only the middle portion with the clock tower. The two wings containing the side towers were added in 1931. These additions were part of the original plan, and as such blend near seamlessly with the original structure.

For more photos of this intriguing High School building, particularly showing he original design of its rear side, obliterated by the subsequent additions, see the following link:

While New Rochelle High School was architectural compromised withe the demolition of its rear side, Villa Andrea Mariani was architecturally compromised by the loss of its peaked roof, and an application of light colored paint over its natural bricks.


Note the plague on the right pillar of the gate.

The villa entrance gate consisted of a bas-relief executed by Oscar Roty (no less!): The love in the arms of a nymph. This collector's item was unfortunately stolen by a dishonest way in the words of Ms. Michaud Emilia-Jeanin in an article in Var Matin published in August 1989 entitled: Villa André: the memory of Angelo Mariani.

The Villa incorporated numerous works of art.

In 1965, the villa Andrea sometimes called Mariani is sold. In the walls, you could still see in 1977 works of art in the form of copper plates embedded in the walls. On one of them, you could even be read a quote Emile Rochard as of 1898 Oasis smiling at the unreal dreams. Valescure is a sleepy park in the blue, true paradou, rocking rest safe haven which prolongs life and makes brief hours. There was also a magnificent polychrome ceramic low relief of 2,50 meters on 2,30 representing carriers of Javanese offerings made by Theodore River....
Inside :
First of all you could see two works by the sculptor and draftsman Louis Patriache Corsica. Is a beautiful picture entitled La Provence and a relief portrait representative Xavier Paoli. There were also several paintings of Jean Renié (View of Frejus) and Atalaya (Sancho and Don Quixote). Not to mention two busts made ​​by Jean Baffier called: The woman with mistletoe and Angela and a group together under the name: The vintage. Moreover, one could not miss the picture of Guillemet; Bords de Seine (around Paris). On the railing of the balcony facing the living room sat on a marble pedestal, the statue of Oscar Roty, still directed by Theodore River.

It would be nice to report that the house has been restored, and perhaps made into a museum.

Alas, people with bad taste had it demolished sometime during the 1980s, and replaced with a house of a far different type of architecture.

 However, a wall that was part of the original late 1800s construction, remains.
On this black and white photography, there are nine. At first glance, from left to right, one can easily distinguish first Uzanne Joseph and Oscar Roty. Then comes Angelo Mariani standing with his eternal cigar in hand. Before him sat on a small padded bench unknown. Who is he ? In the center, the wife of Jacques Mariani (Louise Laroque) and his mother at his side. Approaching the window, it seems we see the front of her domestic help and a child sitting in unidentified tailor. Finally the far right of the picture, we see Xavier Paoli, cousin Mariani. This photograph was taken in the years 1912-1913.

Upon the political destruction of the pharmacratic inquisition-drug war, Angelo Mariani's demolished building as Villa Andre and his facilities at Neuilly-sur-Seine, a western suburb of Paris, should all be constructed.

'Freedom from Religion Foundation' Neglects Pharmacratic Inquisition

The Freedom from Religion Foundation published this poster-advertisement in a number of major newspapers including the New York Times.

Note the heavy emphasis upon contraception and abortion, and the total neglect of the broader picture of the pharmaceutic inquisition that subverts public health via the perversion of drug markets - e.g. perverting herbs as Coca into concentrated cocaine for a market control scheme to protect Virginia Bright Leaf Tobacco cigarettes, as well as suppressing the use of Cannabis for protecting markets for more dangerous and expensive pharmaceuticals and alcoholic beverages  -- and destroyed lives via the judicial system.

At the very least the two points regarding contraception should have been consolidated, with one reserved for spotlighting the twentieth century + pharmacratic inquisition.

How About A Boycott Of Home Depot Over Support of Pro Pharmacratic Inquisition N.J. Gov Christie for U.S. President

Chris Christie strongly supports the pharmacratic inquisition, notably that against people for Cannabis- so why is the co-founder of Home Dept supporting Christie?

Is not it long over due that people within the United States of America  far more attention to those culpable for promoting such poor quality political candidates?

Ken Langone

Estimated net worth: $2.7 billion

How he made his money: He co-founded Home Depot.

Who he's backing: Chris Christie. The New Jersey governor is lagging in early polls and has watched some of his wealthy backers sign on with other candidates. But Langone, who tried to coax him into the presidential 2012 race, remains firmly in his corner. He told the Wall Street Journal that he was a "one-trick-pony" for Christie in 2016, so if he doesn't run, Langone may sit out the primary season.

True For Cannabis, Coca & Opium & Any Other Plant

Interesting how pro U.S. Constitution Hillsdale College and others IGNORE the concept of Freedom of Medicine and Diet; in over 30 years of being on the Hillsdale College Imprimis lecture series mailing list, I have yet to see any thing on this, despite the drug inquisition's serious 'judicial' burden upon the population.  The 'drug war' is human rights-criminal racketeering for a despicable patent medicine [pharmaceutical] - Tobacco protectionist racket dating back to cir 1904

ATTENTION** Federal Cannabis Hemp Marijuana Prohibition is Unconstitutional!

There has been no Amendment to the U.S. Constitution EVER regarding Cannabis.

The 9th Amendment in the Bill of Rights says : "The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people".

In other words, we do have the right to use alcohol and cannabis even though those rights are not listed in the Constitution. And the proof is it did require a Constitutional amendment, the 18th, ratified in 1919, to prohibit alcohol. It required another amendment, the 21st, ratified in 1933, to repeal that prohibition when the people and the government realized how stupid it was -- just as Cannabis prohibition is. 

But there has not been a Constitutional amendment in the case of Cannabis. Because it can be proven in court that Cannabis is not as harmful as alcohol, it can not be prohibited without amending the Constitution. The 18th Amendment, alcohol prohibition, is a binding precedent. Just in case you are ever arrested, have that evidence and expert witnesses ready. A jury has the authority to nullify an unconstitutional law, and declare the defendant not guilty. And surely routine drug testing/urinalysis is a violation of the 4th Amendment, regarding unreasonable search & seizure, and the 5th Amendment, regarding self-incrimination. 

Thank You

Harvard Did Right

Was commissioned by the U.S. Congress of Technology Assessment to do a report upon reducing Coca cultivation in South America.

Yet the report would explicitly recommend against that, instead arguing that Coca should be legalized.

Alternative Coca Reduction [Expansion] Strategies in the Andean Region

Commissioned by the Office of Technology Assessment of the U.S. Congress, this report, dedicated to the official line that Coca cultivation ought to be reduced, Alternative Coca Reduction Strategies in the Andean Region, adopted from a contractor report prepared for the OTA in July, 1991, ended up presenting findings that contradict this dogma of official policy:

...the utility of traditional coca consumption for Andean populations cannot be ignored. Three physiological benefits of coca use (for relief from altitude sickness, as a remedy to vitamin deficiencies, and in conserving body heat), are specifically appropriate to Andeans who must endure the stresses of high-altitude labor and a low protein diet. Evidence does not [emphasis added] support claims that traditional long-term traditional use is harmful. Rather, the multiple advantages of coca use indicate that it has a strong positive role in Andean health. [47]

Alternative Coca Reduction Strategies in the Andean Region, noted Coca's widespread medicinal/therapeutic/dietary importance as an:
Anesthetic/antiseptic: Indigens and non-indigens apply coca topically as a local anesthetic; coca also has antiseptic qualities. The cocaine alkaloid has been shown to exert a powerful bactericidal action on gram-negative and coccus organisms.
Curative/preventative remedy: Coca tea, consumed by indigenous and non-indigenous Andean people, alleviates the symptoms of altitude sickness; combats the effects of hypoglycemia; and helps prevent various lung ailments (an attribute of particular significance to the mining population). For example, chewing coca leaves is believed to limit inhalation of silicates that cause silicosis.
Dietary supplement: Coca leaves contain vitamin A and significant amounts of B, B, and C; they also contain calcium, iron, and phosphorus, in either the leaves or the calcium carbonate customarily taken with the leaves. Leaf chewing helps alleviate nutritional deficiencies of a diet consisting principally of potatoes.
Stimulant: Coca leaves give energy for work, reduces physical discomfort and fatigue, alleviates hunger, sharpens mental processes, and, at high altitudes, helps the chewer keep warm. [48]

Alternative Coca Reduction Strategies in the Andean Region additionally notes that "reports that Coca is bad are unfounded," and significantly, though deferring somewhat to political and economic realities, suggests that we consider re-legalizing Coca, and its potential benefits:

"Options [to reduce the coca supply for cocaine production] might include expanding the international market for legitimate coca products (e.g. coca tea, pharmaceuticals). However, the large amounts of coca produced are likely to overflow existing legitimate markets.
Alternatively, developing new products from coca may have some merit. Potential medicinal and therapeutic applications include:
1) treatment for spasmodic conditions of the gastro-intestinal tract, motion sickness, toothache and other mouth sores;
2) caffeine substitute;
3) anti-depressant; and
4) adjunct to weight reduction and physical fitness.
Examination of the other alkaloids found in coca might yield additional industrial possibilities. Although the research and development time required to bring new products to market may reduce the short term utility of this approach, it could be a useful component in an overall package of efforts to reduce illicit coca production."

I felt vindicated, having said a bit of this in my papers published in the D.P.F. conference paper compendium, particularly the latest of these three, “Coca Conversion: Onwards to Coca!”


Of course both of the major U.S. political parties would do wrong.  Democrat Party U.S. President Bill Clinton would ignore the recommendations, as did the opposition Republican Party, which subsequently abolished the U.S. Congress's Office of Technology Assessment.

MIT-Academia's Contempt for Humanity

2014: Jonahan Gruber, who was recently exposed for revealing the fraud behind Obamacare and by extension Romney/Care of a scheme that presents numbers suggesting it as an endless money pit due to the nonsense occurring with enforced medicine starting during the early 1900s.  Such as choices as this.  And the pharma market protectionism against God Given herbs as this.

1989: Let's not forget that MIT was used as the platform for the 'debunking ' of low temperature nuclear fusion -- otherwise known as "cold fusion" -- during the late 1980s.
On 30 April 1989, cold fusion was declared dead by the New York Times. The Times called it a circus the same day, and the Boston Herald attacked cold fusion the following day.[47]

Remember that the bullsh*t factor goes up exponentially in situations involving a massive threat to the existing economic order.
