April's Meeting Casa Cuseni - a House in Sicily

We enjoyed a sparkling presentation from Celia Catchpole, niece of Daphne Phelps the owner of the house 1948-96 and author of the book. Celia was able add new stories to those in the book and to expand and update anecdotes covered in the book. Her illustrated talk led us into the secret would of the amazing Taormina garden and house. With Celia's permission, I hope to publish here more of her text and slides.
