Rooms and Views: filming in Florence with Merchant Ivory

Lecture in English by Sarah Quill


Sarah Quill, a trustee of the Venice in Peril Fund, has worked for many years in Venice to create an extensive photographic archive of the city’s architecture, sculpture and daily life. During the 1980s she worked as a stills photographer on a number of feature films, including Wagner, Nineteen Eighty-FourA Room with a View, and White Mischief. Her book Ruskin’s Venice: The Stones Revisited (2000) was republished in a new and extended edition in 2015, with an Italian translation scheduled for 2018.
