Join us today, Monday 15th November 2021 at 2pm SLT in our beautiful studio in Garden of Dreams as we journey way back into the past for an episode first shown in July 2016, when we visited the beautiful island of Rocca Sorrentina, an imagining of a late eighteenth century island in the Bay of Naples.
You can watch the episode on this blog, and you can also see it on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at https://vimeo.com/171900078 and you can join the special Watch Party at 2pm SLT in our studio on Garden of Dreams.
We are joined by two of the people behind Rocca Sorrentina (or Principal Magistrates as they are called) Aldo Stern and Sere Timeless. They take us on a journey of discovery as we learn about the rich culture that flourished in the Kingdom of Naples (much visited on the Grand Tour), and the history that lay behind it, reaching back to the lost cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, destroyed by the volcanic eruption of Vesuvius.
And we also learn about the culture and exhibitions staged by Rocca Sorrentina, as Elrik explores a fascinating exhibition on the history of the Tarot … and we learn of upcoming exhibitions too.
