Elaine's passion for exploring art and history in situ, reminds us that art is meant to be experienced. For those of us who can, you are invited to take a stroll through history on these upcoming tours in Italy.

Join me and a small group of interested people on a walk through the neighborhood of Santa Croce. We will begin at the Ponte alle Grazie, walk through the medieval streets of the neighborhood and visit a restoration studio. My friend and colleague, Elizabeth Wicks, will welcome us to her restoration studio on via dei Benci and see what projects they are in the process of restoring. It promises to be a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at a restoration laboratory.

Following the private visit, we enter the Basilica of Santa Croce and talk about the architecture, tombs, and the magnificent works by artists including Giotto, Donatello, Brunelleschi, and Cimabue)
