In light of this past weekend's Easter festivities, we thought it appropriate to share some of our favorite pop culture reincarnations of Da Vinci's Last Supper (1494-1498).

2015-05-05T13:42:17+00:00 April 2nd, 2015|

Constructed by Brunelleschi in 1419, the Hospital Of the Innocents (Ospedale degli Innocenti) was responsible for the protection of abandoned or orphaned children of Florence, a function that renders the building socially significant as well as architecturally striking.  Orphaned children brought up in the Ospedale were given the surname “Innocenti” (which is where the surname still found today [...]

Who’s the gouty-est of them all??

2015-05-05T13:40:22+00:00 March 31st, 2015|

Famous 18th c. English writer, Mary Worley Montagu once said, "People wish their enemies dead, but I do not; I say give them the gout...!!!" From Alexander the Great to Jared Leto, Charlemagne to Pavarotti, and King Henry VIII to former vice president Dick Cheney, “the king’s disease” (otherwise known as gout) does not discriminate, [...]
