Livia shared an amazing amount of detail with her passion for the subject matter.
Ms. Galante did a wonderful job of connecting the overt aesthetics of the mosaics to the rich symbolism, and the shift in both these over time. She also cued us in to mosaics we were unaware of, some to seek out in our next visit to Rome.
The presenter was very knowledgeable and well-prepared. Her conversation was well-organized and provided a good overview of mosaics in major Roman churches. I would highly recommend Ms. Galante and her lectures. I only hope that Context Learning engages her to prepare a similar program concerning the Byzantine mosaics in Ravenna, Italy.
This was a marvelous exploration of material which we didn't know, my spouse and I, though we've been a few times to Rome. Detailed accountings of images in several basilicas built an underlying narrative of continuities even with change. Just great! Livia is so original and so well-informed that you finish knowing fine details and important new ideas.
