For the month of April 2007, I was greatly privileged to work at the Rockefeller Foundation's Study and Conference Center in Bellagio (Italy). And I'm happy to share with you some photographs I took of one of the most spectacularly beautiful places on the planet!
The background music you will hear is taken from the American Bach Soloists recording of Corelli's Concerti Grossi, opus 6. (click here to order a copy!) And you'll need Flash Player 8.0 or higher to view the photos, but it's probably already installed on your system.
There's not much that you need to do other than click once on each of the four "Chapter" headings on the next screen. There are captions beneath many of the photos, which will advance automatically every ten seconds or so. The Table of Contents will return at the end of each chapter. You can navigate through the photos on your own, but doing so will halt the automatic transitions. However, you can restart the automatic progression by clicking on the 'play' button at the bottom right of the photographs.
So, on the next screen, click on a Chapter Heading to begin, but first...
Click on a screen resolution below (as high as possible, but not greater than your monitor settings will allow):
Then, when the next browser window opens, be sure to open it to full size. This window will remain in the background, and you can return to it if you've selected a resolution that is too large for your system.
