Update from Public Programs

Our temporary research station in Villa Finale's Library.

It has been a busy time for us at Villa Finale.  While my colleagues have been busy with contractors, architects, and packing the many collections in the house, I have been busy with, among others things, oral histories.  I conducted the first full-length interview for Restoring Voices two weeks ago and I was even ambitious enough to transcribe it myself … it’s a big task, but a great experience.  In addition to our oral history program, I continue working on research for tour development, programming ideas, designing rack cards, and more.

Also, in keeping true to our team-management philosophy, I have been meeting with my colleagues as we explore such possibilities as site photography, preview tours, and exhibits for the Visitor Center.  While the amount of work that needs to be done before our opening can at times feel overwhelming, we have been successful in keeping things light-hearted thanks to our great working relationships, something very valuable for small staffs!  Make sure you keep coming back for further updates.
