Enjoyed the background information on Cardinal Ippolito and how the villa was originally conceived.
If you are looking for the history of the Tivoli Gardens look no further. This is jam packed with history and mythology. Felt like a college course!
Wonderful images, awesome wealth of fascinating information. Liz is a charismatic storyteller and attentive, encouraging guide. She is a “Sharazade” of art, archeology, and history. I will book any conversation that she creates. Hope there will be more!
I've enjoyed all the Context presentations I've taken and have learned quite a bit. My daydream is that someday I'll be able to return to Italy and enjoy seeing the Tivoli Gardens by actually taking a real tour with Liz. It's a good dream to have during Covid as it helps me remember that this era will pass and once again I will be able to travel to your beautiful country. Liz is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her subject matter. I always feel fortunate when I have the opportunity to attend one of her presentations.
Excellent mix of history, place and aesthetics.
