First day - FANTACITY

Fun, first opening day at Fantacity. Many school classes came into the Rocca Paolina to see the shows, and hear talks about various things --it's an extremely rich program with things going on both inside the Rocca and outside (dancing, music, games, sports, food). Lots of people took pictures, cameramen were there from television, friends showed up. At least if the weather is not great, inside the underground city Rocca Paolina (from the 13th century) we are well protected and warm.
Today there will be even more events with an especially exciting afternoon with the Santini del Prete at 5.30pm on Corso Vannucci, main street of Perugia, and then they will end up followed by the masses, into the Rocca. Then at midnight, fabulous and original performance by my dear friend Carlo Fatigoni with the Urbino Laptop Orchestra. I won't miss this!
Hope to see you today or last day, tomorrow Sunday. Check out the website for other details of the event.Click here  FANTACITY FESTIVAL

Entrance to the Rocca -- this is an incredible place, the inside from the 13th century

My exhibition with works from other artists as well as my paintings in the distance in a room where school kids meet to hear talks regarding authors, etc.

The best way to know who I am is to see what I create. Take a look at this blog or my other one regarding my art.

LOVE the double or triple image maker on my Nikon D80. Just set it, and then take two or three pics.

What's the weather like now in Perugia?

Cold one day, sunny the next. Cold in the house. But we still need our coats or lightweight ones or padded jackets outside. Chilly, and not sunny. I like it like this, no problem for me.
