Designing Worlds DW310 - Rocca Sorrentina
TELEPORT to Rocca Sorrentina: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Rocca%20Sorrentina/86/172/2801
In this episode, we visit the island of Rocca Sorrentina, in the Bay of Naples in and around the 18th Century and the time of the Grand Tour, when travellers from all over Europe, including Britain, visited the cities, countryside and ancient sites, and were inspired to create writings, poetry and art.
Part roleplay environment, part historical re-creation and part virtual educational project, there is a wealth of material to discover here. We tour the sights with Sere Timeless and Aldo Stern, two of the governing Magistrates of this small island. From the art museum and the exhibition on the history of the Tarot in the Governor's Mansion, to the ancient ruins, the amphitheatre, the Palladian villa on the hill with its grand interior, fountains and other water features, and the town below, we spend quite a while exploring - and still don't cover it all.
