An olive tree for Trisomy 21
Last Sunday I attended with great satisfaction on a ex-tempore painting competition in Malmantile (small medieval village near Florence), which was intended to sensitize and collect funds in favor of Trisomy 21 (an initiative promoted by the local Leonardo Alderighi Ass) ... This was a real contest of painting and drawing offhand which was attended by a handful of intrepid artists who, overcome a reluctance for the bad weather of recent days, came together for this small competition.
The proceeds from the sale of paintings will be donated to the association. Some villagers and tourists went away with a painting under his arm! The paintings will soon be exposed by the municipality of Lastra, in a suitable space in the capital.
