In conversation with Katy Hessel and Rosh Mahtani // Which Female Artists would be invited to your dinner party?

Regular price £15.00

Art History with Katy Hessel 

Italy, the home of Dante, is at the heart of my imagination, my memories, and indeed, my brand, after his namesake: Alighieri. 

Italy’s rich history of art was always a subject that attracted me, as it’s so intertwined with Dante’s work. Living in Florence for a year, I was enveloped by the magic: from fading frescos in old libraries, to hidden masters tucked away in dimly lit churches, and sculptures embellishing the facades of chapels. I yearn to be back in Piazza Santo Spirito! Thus, we decided to create Alighieri Old Town in London! 

To bring a piece of Art History to Alighieri Old Town, we have invited our dear friend Katy Hessel of @thegreatwomenartists Instagram and Podcast, to host two talks in the mini Piazza. 

Which Female Artists would you invite to your dinner party at Casa Luna?
With Rosh Mahtani and Katy Hessel 

Sunday 2nd August
The Town Gates are open from 4pm - 6pm
Talk starts at 4.30pm 

Enjoy an intimate aperitivo on a Sunday afternoon with Rosh and Katy as they present the six Women Artists whom they would invite to their dream dinner party in the Town’s restaurant, Casa Luna. From old masters to young contemporaries, they will discuss these women’s stories, personalities, artworks and explain why they would make the best and most interesting people to share dolce with. 

All tickets include an aperitivo and your very own Tour Guide Book. There are only 15 places for each talk, don’t miss out! Guests are welcome to potter around the Old Town and enjoy 15% off all modern heirlooms.

For each ticket sold 100% of net profits will go to Refuge, registered charity number 277424.
