Every day is friends day, but tmorrow is "Friends Day" in Argentina.
This post is dedicated to all my friends, some who I have not seen in years, others who I see every now and then, others who I met for a short period of time and became close, but most of all to MY DEAREST friends. You know who you are. I feel lucky and thankful for all the good times we've spent together - for all the laughs, the crying, the dancing and partying, the travels, the beach, the long conversations, the trust, the love.
Cheers to you!!!

After being on display at the Vatican City, 50 paintings from 15 museums in Le Marche region of central Italy on the Adriatic, will be exhibited at the National Museum of Decorative Arts in Buenos Aires, from July 6 to September 30, 2012.
Buenos Aires city was chosen, since the capital has a large Italian community that immigrated from the Marche region generations ago.
At its very foundation, the purpose of the art exhibit is to show the strong links between art and faith. Centuries may pass, but this exhibit shows that despite time, that unique combination still remains.
“Meraviglie dalle Marche” includes about 50 pieces, made by artists who have a direct connection to Italy's Marche region. It was in that area that many Italian artists produced their work. It's also where some of the most important artists in Italian history were born, like Raffaello, Barocci and Podesti.
The exhibition includes works such as a lesser-known version of Raphael’s “Saint Catherine of Alexandria,” (the most famous one is in the National Gallery in Washington), Titian’s “Resurrection”, and Guido Reni’s “Annunciation” and “Saint Sebastian”, and works by other painters equally remarkable as Guercino, Luca Giordano, Maratta, among others.
