In deze lezing aangeboden door de Circulo Cervantes Maastricht, gaat architectuurhistoricus Suzanne Roelofs in op waarom de Spaanse architectuur zo bijzonder wordt gevonden: in een stad als Maastricht, waar ooit een uitgebreide campus van Santiago Calatrava had kunnen staan, is dat natuurlijk geen oninteressante vraag.

This lecture is organized as part of Stucco Storico: The Story Behind a Craft.
