I have enjoyed several of Anne’s “Zoom” presentations. The subject matter is always thoroughly researched and presented in a coherent, knowledgeable and humorous manner. I particularly enjoyed the presentation on Italian hand gestures and their meaning. I have Italian ancestry, and after viewing the lecture, I immediately called one of my cousins to discuss the content, and we laughed hysterically about our memories of these long-forgotten gestures used by many family members. I also particularly enjoyed the most recent lecture on the restoration of the St Francis basilica frescoes (by Giotto and Cimabue) after the 1997 earthquake. My husband and I had visited the Basilica about a year before the earthquake, and had wonderful memories of the frescoes, so the description and photos of the painstaking efforts to restore them was fascinating and illuminating. When we can safely travel again, i look forward to contacting Anne for her wonderful tours.
