“Bravo to the Penticton Art Gallery and Dr. Antonella De Michelis for giving us the honour to experience this lecture series on Rome.  Dr. De Michelis’ talk was so eloquent and captivating that one feels they are walking with the people of Rome at this time.  I hope these lectures can continue after this series.”  Margaret N.
“A wonderful lecture/lecturer – never thought of the history of Rome through its architecture.  A great intellectual talk to challenge my university education-starved mind!  Thank you so much Antonella – I look forward to the rest of the series.”
“Fantastic idea! Great presentation. De Michelis’ knowledge and enthusiasm for Rome is incredible. Thank you!”
“Outstanding! High-energy speaker and so informative.  See you next month!”
“Loved it! Thanks!”
“Antonella makes history come alive.  Very enjoyable.  It’s a privilege to have her here to share her knowledge.”
“Dr. Antonella De Michelis is totally excellent and outstanding. She is fully in command of her material about Italy.  Her enthusiasm about Italy and Rome is contagious.  Her Lecture 2: 'All Roads Lead to Rome. Pilgrimages & Processions' was filled with expertise.  Dr. Antonella De Michelis’ knowledge is incredibly detailed.  She really knows the history of Rome by heart.  I give Dr. Antonella De Michelis my highest recommendation & look forward to learning more about Italy and Italian culture from her.”   Douglas B.
