Our 5th Symposium for Historical Dance: 10-14 June, 2020
Come and follow Alan Jones into the kitchens of the Este court in 16th-century Ferrara, where famous cooks not only noted delicous meals and extravagant "collazioni" but provided valuable information about the practical organisation of balls and danced interludes. Buon appetito!
