Kate (M.Phil.) lectures in Music & Cultural History at various prestigious institutions in Florence, including the British Institute, New York University and the Istituto Lorenzo de’Medici. She is also a licenced Italian tour guide. Before moving to Italy in 2007, she was Senior Producer for BBC Arts and Music and, for 10 years, she was Artistic Director of the Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music in London. Her post-graduate thesis (1992) led her into the fascinating world of late medieval Florence, via the shadowy, poet-composer Don Paolo da Firenze, since when she has published extensively as an academic, a critic and a journalist.
How do I access the lecture?
"Great Advice for my Upcoming Trip. I'm going to Florence/Tuscany in a few weeks. Kate's talk was an excellent primer on the top highlights, hidden gems, and even covered Italian artisan workshops that I'm interested in exploring. I've been researching for months and still learned many new things. Grazie."
