5th Anniversary Edition of the MAF Masonry Excellence Awards Publication Distributed at the MAF Annual Convention
t took a team of IMI-led BAC masons to lend a hand in unraveling a centuries-old “Great Cathedral Mystery”, the title of a soon-to-be-aired edition of the PBS series, NOVA, on Wednesday, Feb. 12th. The show chronicles the efforts of five BAC bricklayers who traveled to Florence, Italy at the invitation of National Geographic to reconstruct a replica of the city's famed Duomo, the world's largest masonry dome. The objective: to shed light on how the original might have been constructed, a process that has baffled building professionals and enthusiasts since it was completed nearly 600 years ago.
The team, comprised of IMI national, regional, and local training staff including Bob Arnold (21 IL), Dave Wysocki (21 IL), Don Hunt (15 MO/KS), Tom Ward (2 MI), and National Job Corps Director Jonas Elmore (4 IN/KY), all traveled to Florence at the expense of National Geographic and Camera One Productions.
