A very interesting presentation providing a brief overview of the history of the Venice in Peril Fund, highlighting the environmental risks which threaten the art and buildings in Venice, and looking at a few of the restoration and conservation projects Venice in Peril has undertaken. I especially enjoyed the behind the scenes look at some of the restoration projects, gaining a better understanding of the research, consultation and planning that goes into any project before the actual painstaking restoration work begins. I now have another perspective with which to look at the beautiful art and architecture in Venice.
Dr. Steer does an excellent job! Learned a lot about the organization's important work. Especially liked learning about the Canova memorial in I Frari and San Nicolo dei Mendicoli.
Very interesting and informative presentation. The moderator (Kelli) was terrible: she talks extremely fast, not understandable!
