I’ve enjoyed all of the lectures, but I really think this was my favorite. I’ve been to Florence three times, and taken many tours while there, but I wish I’d known some of the things I learned in this talk before my visits. I got a better understanding of how various architectural elements were an expression of the philosophy embraced during this age, as well as their connection to structures in Ancient Rome. Fascinating talk.
Terrific conversation, full of rich history and details. Great background! Very much enjoyed the time with Kate!
In 2018 we were fortunate to be on a walking tour in Florence with Kate. She has so much knowledge, which she skillfully shares
This was incredible. She has a great spoken voice, her slides were perfect, and I felt like I was there. I learned so much too, but in an easy way.
An excellent, informative presentation of Brunelleschi’s history and architectural achievements in Florence coupled with beautiful slides . Very comprehensive yet easy to understand with a friendly instructor. I learned as much as when I spent time in Florence! As an art student, I especially liked learning the origins of one point perspective and its cultural and religious implications.
