CHARITY/ The British Institute of Florence's Virtual Cultural Event
6pm, April 1
Director of The British Institute of Florence, Simon Gammell, hosts a talk entitled 'Portraits and Selfies', looking at tourism in Florence through the ages. From the days of Shakespeare, through to the Grand Tour and the cruise ship day-trippers, the talk will last 30 minutes and will be followed by a discussion. It is recommended you "attend" with a glass of wine, much as you would on a regular Wednesday at Palazzo Lanfredini. A donation is requested to participate in the session and funds raised will go towards the Institute with 50 per cent donated to Il Cuore di Firenze Foundation, a charity providing vital support to hospitals in Florence. Sign in to Zoom using ID 276 957 5320.
Continuing with the regular Monday night sessions, sign in to Zoom using ID 541-961-592 to bring music into your home. Speakeasy Multilingual share their Zoom account for the occasion. See The Showcase Open Mic page for updates.
Presented by performance artist and mental health mentor Marisa Garreffa, these are the second and third episodes in a series for staying sane during quarantine offered by The Student Hotel. With practical and creative methods as well as information and resources, these are tips for staying strong throughout the crisis. The event is free and will be held in English. Register via eventbrite and the link will be sent directly.
During the week at 5pm CET—unless another time is noted—we’re going to try to have something to do together. We have chosen to meet on Go To Meeting or Go To Webinar (depending on the event format). The kind folks at LogMeIn are our technical sponsors; their digital communications packages make it possible for us to meet and interact online. With a wine club on Wednesdays, music, psychologists and more, the line-up is being ever updated. Read more here.
