This is the last week of my fund raiser on Kickstarter.com to bring to completion my "Lingering Past, italian Landscapes and cityscapes" project. This is the link to my project where you will be able to see a video where I talk about "Lingering Past" in details. Some of you may have never heard of Kickstarter.com, so let me sum in few words what it is. This website connects people with creative ideas with people who are willing to funds their projects. It is another one of those concept that make the internet an invaluable tool for the community at large. In times like this, when the government has slashed severely the funds for the arts, Kickstarter.com has proved itself to be a great substitute to the traditional way for artists to work on their labor of love through grants requests. I encourage any of you to submit their costly projects and let the community help you out. Of course, I also invite you to support my project, which has already reached a good level of support but that hasn't reached yet the necessary sum in order to secure the existing pledges. Only one week to go as I write. Thank you very much in advance!
