Context brings the brightest minds to your living room with perspective-shifting online lectures.
I know from my experience with Kate Bolton-Porciatti's programs on the Neighborhoods of Florence and on Assisi that even if my husband and I have been to those areas numerous times and feel like we know a great deal about them, we always learn all sorts of new things about the region, the history, the art and architecture, the city and rural life in those areas both in the past and currently, nearby villages and hamlets, and more. I also enjoy her perspective and occasional wit - she's a comfortable presenter to listen to. The still photography (both nature and art), the videos, and the pictures pulled from the archives to show past history are always so well chosen. She has a sense of balance in her use of time, so the session moves forward with energy but also with enough lingering for the viewer to enjoy the subject she is addressing. Her programs are masterful, and the one on Orvieto was no exception!
It’s such a beautiful part of the world and Kate Bolton-Porciatti really brings it to life with her commentary and videos. She’s an excellent guide.
Excellent presentation- enjoyed learning about these towns. Even though we have been to some of them, we learned new things.
It was another great lecture interspersed with interesting photos, videos, walks, etc. You never get bored when Kate is presenting. Thank you.
