1 review for Online Experience: Leonardo da Vinci & Robotics

  1. Claudia Kreile

    Mrs. Taglialagamba is very sympathic and explains in a very good understandable way. She prepared extremely well her „lecture“, we got many new information. It was an honour to see the (unpublished) „reconstruction“ of the painting so that we could recognize the details much better. I liked the Zoom, so we could see each other like in a real-live guided tour. Only the sound quality was not always good. It was very easy to book the tour. I already recommended Artviva to a friend.
