Autumn Reviews

Friends of Ravenna talks this autumn are taking place on Zoom.  Our members have been very appreciative – see a few of the comments: 

9th November: “The Struggle against the Mafia” by Prof. John Dickie 

“Thank you SO much.  A fascinating talk tonight.  I really enjoyed it.  IF there is a recording I would love to have the link so that I could watch it again.”

Thank you for organising this. It was fascinating and we now have a much better understanding of the Mafia and its development. “

“Thank you …for yesterday’s excellent lecture – so fascinating!”

14th October: “The History of the Medici” by Douglas Skeggs 

“The Medici talk was of such an astonishing high standard and so professionally managed.”

“Brilliant Evening and wonderfully organised. Thank you”

24th September  “More Prosecco, Vicar?” by John-Henry Bowden

Just wanted to say how very much we enjoyed John-Henry Bowden’s talk at last night’s meeting. His excellent stories raised all our spirits – it’s always good to laugh out loud.”

“John-Henry, I just want to say how much I really enjoyed your talk about Venice last night and the slides and masks between the stories made it all so professional.  What a fascinating time you had in Venice, but not all enjoyment and a lot of hard work and stressful moments at the time.

9th September  “Papa Francesco a Palermo” by Jennifer McNeill

“I very much enjoyed Jennifer McNeill’s talk and I’d be grateful if you could pass on to her my thanks for all the effort she must have put into preparing a really interesting presentation and insight into Sicily and the impact of the Pope’s visit.”

“Grazie per una piacevolissima conferenza”
