Having been to Rome twice and visited this museum it was satisfying to hear how much more there is at the Borghese Galleria. Cecilia Martini gave an intriguing presentation on the many layers of the art, architecture, politics, history and sociology of the Galleria. Personally I prefer a live guide on the spot rather than reading although I do both. This lecture is beneficial to those planning a trip to Rome and even for those repeats.
The Borghese Museum is one of the most densely packed museums in the world, yet one only has two hours to explore it. This talk was a deep dive into the history of the museum, and a good introduction into its most celebrated artworks.
I was interested and engaged every minute of this program. Cecilia Martini is an exceptional instructor and great storyteller. I would sign up for anything she offers.
Cecilia Martini is knowledgeable. She manages her time well and explores in detail the history, culture and art of the subject.
Cecilia Martini was a consummate professional, knowledgeable, excellent presenter and charming
