I really enjoyed this class. She made a very god choice to select just 3 walled cities and to give us a fairly in-depth look at each (there re loads of others she could have chosen). She knows a lot and clearly has a deep love of her subject. I had visited each of these cities but learned so much from her -- would love to have taken a Context walking tour with her. I especially liked the way that she shot her own little videos rather than relying on canned promos. She made me want to go back to all of them, which I will indeed do some time in the future.
Informative with good illustrations, photos and on-site videos.
A very thorough and well-integrated presentation, with great slides and video. I enjoyed it immensely. My first Context seminar; it was a great introduction, and I've already signed up for several more.
Very well informed and interesting
Kate Bolton-Porciatti's presentation on the Walled Cities and Towers of Tuscany was a fascinating compilation of the history, architecture, art, and culture of this region. It was clear, informative, and riveting; the perfect amount of information for the time frame, and a nice mixture of photographs, live videos, and literary quotes. I only wish I could have joined her in person for the journey from Lucca to Pienza.
