  1. Amazing. 100 years later, Vienna is EXACTLY in the same place where it was, Israel is the start-up nation. Makes one think…

  2. I loved the Van Gogh lecture. I hope that another lecture by Professor Cernuschi will be uploaded before the long summer break begins?

  3. So happy to see this lecture here. Looking forward to watching the rest of the series.
