Puglia, Italy Talk on Fri., March 30

See the city of Rome and Italy’s southern peninsula of Puglia through the eyes of artist Judy Taylor at a talk and slideshow at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, March 30 at 7 p.m.

Taylor lead a group of students on a trip to sketch, tour and view art in Rome and the territory of Puglia, (also called Apulia), a long, narrow peninsula, which forms the heel of Italy’s boot, bordered by the Ionian and Adriatic seas. In Puglia, the group traveled to towns including the medieval city of Matera which is in the Basilicata region; Ostuni, known as the “White City” for its whitewashed houses perched on three hills; and Lecce, which is nicknamed the “Florence of the South” because of the Baroque architecture in the city.
