Bernini in Ecstasy - 
A new play in two acts by Clay Ballard
(Director: Kate Caffrey. Producer: Phil Micali. Historical consultant: Franco Mormando.)

BERNINI IN ECSTASY is a portrait of one of our greatest artists, the sculptor, architect, painter and playwright Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598 - 1680). In his lifetime, the tempestuous, ambitious Bernini was both a legend and a scandal to the Romans; yet he became the intimate of eight popes. This play follows Bernini from the lowest moment of his career to the creation of his most famous statue, the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa.
Against the backdrop of Baroque Rome and the Catholic Church in the Age of Absolutism, BERNINI IN ECSTASY presents the mythic personalities who inhabited this rarefied world at a critical time in history and portrays these great figures in all their humanity. BERNINI IN ECSTASY is more than a history play; it's more than a religious play or a play about power; it's more than a play about patronage or sexuality or the role of women. BERNINI IN ECSTASY illuminates the perennial struggle between art and commerce, between spiritual inspiration and religious dogma, between the spirit and the flesh; and in doing so, it deepens our understanding of the world today.
This is a staged reading of BERNINI IN ECSTASY by professional actors. It will last about 2 hours, with one intermission, to be followed by a conversation between the audience, the playwright, and the director.

Culture of the Gardens in the Italian Renaissance

Join us for a reception of the Princess Giorgiani Corsini and her lecture on the Palazzo Corsini al Prato. 
We are delighted to welcome Princess Giorgiana Corsini who will speak on the history and culture of gardens in the Renaissance. She brings rich understanding and hands-on experience in gardening and will, no doubt, give ideas to elegantly enhance our New England gardens.

The architecture of the Palazzo Corsini's 16th century vaulted loggia in Florence is echoed in the structure of the classical gardens it faces. Fifteen generations of the Corsini family have enjoyed the Renaissance symmetry of their private gardens just steps from the center of Florence. The garden is highlighted by symmetrical box hedges, ancient statuary and potted citrus trees. It was recently updated by the famous landscape architect, di Collobiano, known for his simplistic elegance. The Corsini have added color and scent with a variety of lavender and other vigorous Mediterranean plants.

Princess Giorgiana and Prince Filippo Corsini come from an historical Florentine family dating back to the 12th century. Their early fortunes were tied to trading with the Court of England. While their political influence declined under the Medici they increased their wealth through trading throughout Europe and providing a postal service. During the 16th and 17th century they built palaces in Florence, Tuscany and Rome including the palace on Via Sul Prato, home to their classical garden. The family regained political power with the elevation of cardinals and Pope Clement X11.

Today, the Corsini family maintains Wineries in Marsiliana and Le Corte and other agricultural properties. They also have one of Italy's finest and most expansive family archives which have recently been moved from Florence to their Tuscan villa, Le Corti,  with a great deal of national press.

Giorgiana Corsini is an expert with hands-on experience in both Renaissance Italian classical gardens and aristocratic wineries in Tuscany. She travels and lectures throughout Europe, Canada and the United States.
