While growing up in Russia, I could have never dreamed that one day I would be able to visit different countries. Italy was always one I was dreaming about.
As a teenager, I was a big fan of Toto Cutugno, who was very popular in Russia at the time. I had a record which I played a million times and fell in love with the sound of Italian language.
Adriano Celentano was a favorite of girls my age
Some dreams fortunately do come true. The amount of inspiration is just overwhelming! The architecture, sculptures, fresco paintings are literally breathtaking! The countryside with happy flying colorful bugs in meadows full of flowers made my heart sing to the tunes of Verdi and Puccini! The fashion and even food (especially gelatto for me!) – everything there was calling for a paint brush!
