I visited Sicily about 10 years ago on a one week tour. Although the tour was great I felt I didn’t really have a good understanding of how the various cultures flowed through the island but was fascinated by the fact that Sicily was the center . Cetty did a great job of putting it all in perspective for me. Can’t wait to return and see the wonderful sites again with a new appreciation.
The presentation was centered more on architecture than I expected.
Hearing was difficult - volume
Her Italian/English impeded quick understanding.
Definitely should emphasize architecture -

The basis of the presentation including the photos and the stories is interesting but with such a short lecture time it only just touches on the history of this complex island. Unfortunately the presentation ran into problems on the technical side and much was lost in time and in the overly expanded photos that cut off much of what one would want to see. Sicily is such an interesting destination but the presentation altho full od promise in end did not merit as one of Contexts better efforts.
Catty Spoto was informative and covered a lot of ground and a wide range of aspects of Sicily. However, for much of the 90 minutes the images were cut off so the viewers didn’t get the whole picture and text. I didn’t understand why the monitor didn’t help Cetty correct this. Also at at least one point the whole presentation broke down for a few minutes. I hope Cetty gets the technical aspects corrected. I would take another session with her.
