Velia: Guide to the Greek and Roman Excavations

Consider Vesuvius Vesuvius, the only active volcano in Europe, is the focal point of Naples You can’t miss the volcano when you ...

Dodgers’ long journey to first World Series title in 32 years

ARLINGTON, Texas — Thirty-two years is a long time. Long enough for Dodgers fans to wonder if this day might never come. And it nearly didn’t. From Oct. 20, 1988 when Orel Hershiser threw the last pitch of the Dodgers’ five-game World Series victory over the Oakland A’s until Tuesday night, when Julio Urias did the same against the Tampa Bay Rays – a franchise that didn’t even exist in 1988 – the Dodgers and their fans went into the winter year after year feeling disappointed – or cheated. But 2...

As lockdowns stretch on, is edtech passing or failing?

Back in January, Georgia Tech professor David Joyner got a cryptic email from a student based in Wuhan, China. “I’m under quarantine, but my internet access is okay so I have more time to spend on classwork, I wanted to let you know,” the message read. Unsure why Wuhan would be under quarantine, Joyner did a quick Google search and saw the beginnings of the coronavirus pandemic. “I thought, there’s something going on in Wuhan so maybe we’ll have some students affected by it,” Joyner said. Fast-f...

Prato della Valle, Padua: Italy’s Largest Piazza

When you write about Italy, you are usually dealing with superlatives. Oldest this, tiniest that. As I was doing research on the squares (piazze) of Italy for my #30dayphotochallenge project, I came across a photo I had taken while in Prato della Valle in Padua. I didn’t have to delve too far to discover that this is Italy’s largest piazza — even bigger than Piazza del Plebiscito in Naples and Piazza del Popolo in Rome. Prato della Valle measures 90,000 sq meters, making it not only the largest...

"Emptiness and absence contradict the very concept of the city. The point of a city is social proximity..."

"... to see people deliberately spaced out, like the walking but never intersecting figures in a Giacometti, is to see what cities aren’t. In a historical sense, cities are always organisms of a kind, like coral reefs, where a lot of people come together to barter spices and exchange ideas and find mates, and endure the recurrent damage of infectious disease....  Outside, new patterns of wider spacing and greater caution assert themselves: Is that masked man contagious and to be avoided by cross...

Returning to the lockdown in Florence

Friday, March 13, 2020 I only left Florence for a few days to celebrate my beloved's birthday in Germany. The streets of Florence had grown quiet as many tourists and foreign students departed from the city daily. On Monday, the night before I was to return to Florence, Italy announced a lockdown until April 3rd. I feared my flight would be canceled and I wouldn't be able to return to Florence. Some people told me I was crazy to return, but I couldn't not return home. The man at the check-in co...

LA Opera goes Broadway musical with ‘Light in the Piazza’

The banners on the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion say Los Angeles Opera. But the company’s current production of Adam Guettel’s “The Light in the Piazza” is a Broadway musical through and through. Based on the novella by Elizabeth Spencer, the show (direct from its London engagement at the Royal Festival Hall) is as light and airy as a spring day in Florence with a few dark family secrets held in reserve for suspense and conflict. It may not be an opera, but the cast does feature a genuine operatic s...
