Well-known artist Franco Venanti opened his exhibition at the magnificent Chiesa di San Francesco in Corciano, Perugia, yesterday, August 4, 2012 during the event Corciano Festival.
Here is a link regarding the details of the exhibition and several photographs taken during the opening.
Corciano is a town not far from Perugia. It's a hill town, a beautiful little place with lovely stone buildings, churches and much Umbrian atmosphere. Here is the entrance to The San Francesco Church, right at the base of the center of town.
Here is a band which accompanies openings of events. In the crowd are many artist friends, people in the field of publishing and people of the city hall of the town.

Happy to be photographed with Franco Venanti, here I am together with the artist inside the exhibition yesterday.
