This seminar led us through the highlights of a unique architectural style. Valentina Bruschi offered great information with rich visuals to illustrate. Would attend a part 2 seminar.
Wow! Such a fascinating story about Arab-Norman Palermo. I'm definitely planning a trip to Sicily after participating in this conversation!
Very informative, excellent pictures and charts to support presentation. Valentina was clear, organized, very knowledgeable. She managed to cover an enormous amount of information in this brief presentation.
Sadly, my first disappointment of eleven Conversations.
Heavy text should never be shown with photos. It is exceedingly distracting while trying to pay attention to what is being said. In addition, it gave the impression that if only one could obtain the booklet from World Heritage, it wouldn't be necessary to attend this talk. Photos all seemed to be from that published material. Too many sites were covered so there was little time for in-depth discussion . The lack of interesting historical tidbits and asides kept the virtual tour from being an individualized experience. Instead, it seemed canned. Quite frankly, it was a waste of time.
Excellent presentation.....very informative and academic which I like.
