FM.Marche.Itani Si Che BELLISSIMA✪Le ❙t e Amo<3

The Marche is one of the 20 Regions of Italy. The Italian name Le Marche is the plural of marca, and literally means "the Marches", originally referring to the medieval March of Ancona and nearby marches of Camerino and Fermo.
The Marche are located in the Central area of the country, bordering Emilia-Romagna and the republic of San Marino to the north, Tuscany to the north-west, Umbria to the west, Abruzzo and Lazio to the south and the Adriatic Sea to the east. Except for river valleys and the often very narrow coastal strip, the land is hilly. In the nineteenth century, a railway from Bologna to Brindisi linked the Marche along the coastline of the entire territory. Inland, the mountainous nature of the region, even today, allows little travel north and south, except by rough roads over the passes.

Baby Kangaroo Welcomes Rescued Emu Chicks with Adorable Snuggling

Baby Kangaroo Welcomes Rescued Emu Chicks with Adorable Snuggling | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
The Wild Action Zoo in Victoria, Australia was recently the site of some extremely adorable inter-species snuggling. Reuben, an eight-month-old baby kangaroo, welcomed a couple of day-old emu chicks named Edi and Eli, creating a cuteness overload as they all cuddled in one cozy bed. Photographer Jay Town captured the sweet scene, which shows the emus making themselves right at home, amusingly stepping over Reuben so they can get comfortable.
Edi and Eli came to the zoo via zoologist Chris Humfrey, who rescued the little creatures from imminent danger—feral foxes. “The father emu ‘Elvis’ would not have been able to protect the chicks from being eaten at night,” he explained to Buzzfeed. “Now these bundles of fluff sleep next to my fireplace… they all live quite happily together.”
Sadly, the emus won’t stay with Reuben forever. Once they’ve grown bigger, the siblings will be reunited with their parents.

Dynamic Rainbow Installation Is Carefully Crafted from Hidden Shapes Addressing Gun Violence

Dynamic Rainbow Installation Is Carefully Crafted from Hidden Shapes Addressing Gun Violence | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Paper sculptor Li Hongbo is using his most recent colorful installation to make an important statement. Irons for the Ages, Flowers for the Day is a rainbow of paper art that examines the conflict surrounding war and weapons. Each aspect of the sculpture is made from gun-shaped packs of paper that have been fanned out into delicate, floral patterns. This juxtaposition is meant to represent the dueling forces of war and peace. "Audiences will see a beautiful flower blooming in the space, but this image also hopefully makes people think and pay close attention to what's underneath," Hongbo told The Creators Project. "When viewers realize that such a wonderful space is actually made out of 'weapons,' they are going react."
The setting for the installation also plays a role in its visual power. "The historical building together with this contemporary look makes people think about the lifespan of a flower, flourishing shortly, and of steel, which lasts much longer," explained the artist.…

Dad Builds 3-Seat Rocking Chair for Reading with Three Kids

Dad Builds 3-Seat Rocking Chair for Reading with Three Kids | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Craftsman Hal Taylor has designed an uncommon rocking chair that's a perfect fit for the whole family. "I have been an avid reader all of my life," the artist explains. "Therefore, when I had children I began reading to them very early, before they were born actually. This continued until their reading ability eclipsed my own. When Rose was born, she proved herself to be the 'communicator' in the family very quickly, speaking in complete sentences with perfect diction. Well - she was NOT going to be left out of the reading crowd! This presented a problem for me because, not having a lap large enough for three children, this meant that Rachael, the oldest, had to stand by the chair at story time. I felt this was not at all fair and thought, 'Well, I make rocking chairs, I can figure this thing out!' And, I did."
To fix this story time dilemma, Taylor built the unique StoryTime Rocking Chair. At its core, the handmade chair resembles your average rocking chair, but it's much more…

95-year-old yoga master Kazım Gürbüz believes we can all live to be 130 years old and has some solid advice to help us achieve this. When you first look at the yogi, you'll realize that he most definitely does not look his age. To keep himself looking youthful, Gürbüz works on maintaining his flexibility and focuses on eating a variety of superfoods. This way of life hasn't only helped him to look fresh-faced, it's also allowed him to recover from a serious injury. At the age of 41, he was left paralyzed from the waist down after breaking his back. Doctors said he would never walk again, but the inspirational man ended up curing himself by having friends manipulate his vertebra back into place. “I conducted 63 different experiments on myself," the yogi told Daily Hurriyet. "I was born again. Nine months after the experiment I began to walk. ‘Miracle!’ they said."
While many saw Gürbüz's recovery as miraculous, he thought differently. "Man uses his brain power if applied correctly and…

Can You Spot the Nude Models Camouflaged in These Landscapes? | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Artist Filippo Ioco travels the world to produce his spectacular body painting series called Landscapes. In it, nude models are cloaked in natural-colored pigments and posed in settings like red rock deserts, sandy beaches, and vasts woodlands, their camouflage so expertly applied that they seamlessly blend in with their surroundings.
It’s often hard to spot the figures in Ioco’s photographs, and only after a thorough examination do you see them acting as the branch of a tree or the smoothed curve of a large rock. Browsing through the series can feel a bit like Where’s Waldo? So, how many of the painted models can you spot?

3D Sidewalk Murals Invite Pedestrians to Interact with the Illusive Art

3D Sidewalk Murals Invite Pedestrians to Interact with the Illusive Art | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Artist Nikolaj Arndt continues to dazzle pedestrians with his remarkable sidewalk chalk abilities. Since 2009, the designer has created 3D works of sidewalk art that transform flat, grey pavement into a dynamically colorful canvas. "I use chalk and pigment. The pigment is the same as chalk, only in powder," he told PxlEyes. "I use water with lots of sugar to dilute the pigment. The sticky base protects the work from the wind. To draw a picture I need an average of two days." Even in just a matter of days, Arndt is capable of illustrating pieces that viewers can easily interact with.
"Those who want to try their hand at street art, I would say: Do not be afraid to experiment," the artist advises. "Try something new, it is always interesting. For me the main thing in art is to give positive emotions to the audience. When people are smiling, looking at my pictures, I’m happy."

Photographer Hidenobu Suzuki has captured the idyllic landscapes of Japan in a remarkably tranquil light. Between the quiet foggy rivers, peaceful rice fields, and twilight at Mt. Fuji, there's something for everyone who's looking for a visually relaxing utopia. "My photographs are like Japanese paintings," Suzuki explains. "Japanese like to express emotions and spiritual feelings through the landscape photography. Contemporary theater, art and music stimulate the brain and increase mood. Emotional art heal people and leads the society to harmony. I took a challenge to capture emotions with my camera." This element of spirituality can be detected in each and every photo, which helps to highlight the beauty of Japan's nature. Suzuki also demonstrates that expressive artwork can serve as a means for finding serenity in both our inner and outer worlds.

German photographer Ines Opifanti demonstrates that dog owners are experts when it comes to imitating their furry friends. “The Dog People is an ongoing project where dog owners try to mimic their dogs’ facial expressions," the artist explains. "While I don’t believe in the common folk wisdom claiming dog owners become similar looking to their dogs over the years, I do believe that they become really really good in interpeting their pets subtle mimic."
Aside from their impressive impersonations, some of Opifanti's subjects do look quite alike. One duo has a similar hair and fur color, while another's snapshot showcases their seemingly identical big brown eyes. Based on how they're posing, certain pairs appear to have the same personalities.

Artist Creates Delicious Smoothie Blends to Match Pantone Color Swatches

Artist Creates Delicious Smoothie Blends to Match Pantone Color Swatches | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Recently, art director Hedvig Astrom Kushner embarked on a deliciously colorful project. "I make a lot of smoothies and discovered it works like mixing paint," she told us in an email. Playing with this idea of smoothies as paint, Kushner found that adding a strawberry would yield a bright pink hue, while blending in some tofu softened the color’s intensity. This got the designer thinking—is it possible to create a tasty smoothie in any Pantone color? Through her delicious experiment, called Pantone Smoothies, she’s trying to find out.
To make these delectable drinks, the process is simple: Kushner buys colored paper from an art supply store, matches it to a Pantone swatch, and combines ingredients like bananas, mangoes, and avocados to reproduce a specific shade of a Pantone swatch. She then collaborates with photographer Michael Kushner to create appetizing images, which always include a neatly-organized shot of what went into the smoothie.

Anyone who's ever played with LEGO bricks knows there's something magical about assembling sophisticated structures and displays from a pile of individual pieces of plastic. Now, adults can have the same fun with EverBlock, a new modular building system of oversized blocks capable of forming fantastic, life-sized creations.
With EverBlock, users can dream big, stacking and organizing to construct walls, room dividers, furniture, shelters, and much more.

Stunning Ink and Pencil Drawings of Human Faces Emerge from Maps

Stunning Ink and Pencil Drawings of Human Faces Emerge from Maps | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
In an intriguing blend of cartography and illustration, UK artist Ed Fairburn uses maps as his canvases for stunning ink and pencil portraits. Faces are fragmented by contours that not only delineate borders, roads, and geographical features, but also bear a striking resemblance to veins and the texture of skin. Made up of incredibly intricate details, the human forms that emerge from dense lines are extraordinarily realistic, even while being abstracted by the patterns of the maps.
When asked why he uses maps as his medium of choice, Fairburn replied on his Facebook page: "Several reasons... the ephemeral quality, the traditional element away from digital, the richness of pattern... maps offer a kind of framework which fits my work both physically and conceptually."

Journalist Spends Four Years Documenting India's Crumbling Subterranean Stepwells Before They Disappear

Journalist Spends Four Years Documenting India's Crumbling Subterranean Stepwells Before They Disappear | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Tucked away on quiet streets far from the hustle and bustle of popular tourist attractions, in between the spectacular palaces, temples, and tombs that appear on the covers of guidebooks, an entire category of Indian architecture has faded into obscurity and historical obsolescence. Called stepwells, these centuries-old structures consist of deep wells that can be accessed via staircases plunging several stories underground. The magnificent edifices, which Chicago journalist Victoria Lautman has spent four years photographing at 120 sites around India, were born of necessity between the 2nd and 4th centuries A.D. as a way to guarantee a steady water supply in a primarily arid climate interrupted by torrential monsoons for a few weeks each year.
Although the subterranean stepwells first took on the form of rudimentary trenches dug into the water table, by the 11th century, they had evolved into astonishingly complex feats of engineering and art that boasted intricate elements from…

New Amazingly Intricate, Laser-Cut Wood Relief Silhouettes by Gabriel Schama | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Oakland, CA-based artist Gabriel Schama layers thin sheets of laser-cut wood to create amazingly intricate wood relief sculptures made up of dizzying patterns and textures. While known for his geometric, mandala-like compositions, several of the artist's most recent works fill elegant silhouettes with precisely cut designs, creating elaborate portraits that fuse figurative and abstract motifs.
"These recent silhouette pieces are not a new thread in my work," Schama told us via email. "When I started working in cut paper, five or six years ago, I was almost exclusively working on a style of surreal portraiture. When I started doing fully abstract works, it was mostly a way of delving deeper into the patterns and textures that were already visible in my designs. I have been working with my laser cutter for over a year now, and there has been so much space to explore in terms of technique and structure that I haven't wanted to do anything other than large abstract compositions."

Prismatic Sheets of Glass Change Color When Layered Over Each Other

Prismatic Sheets of Glass Change Color When Layered Over Each Other | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Crystal prisms are dazzling spectacles that refract light, slowing it down into different wavelengths that produce a variety of rainbow hues. With this phenomenon in mind, designers Thomas Vailly and Laura Lynn Jansen have created 101.86°, a project that artificially reproduces the natural properties of a crystal found in the highlands of Iceland. The qualities of the stone have been translated into sheets of clear, treated glass. When they’re layered over one another, the refracted light allows new and brilliant colors to emerge. The glass also has a kaleidoscopic effect—as its rotated, the hues instantly change.
Vailly and Jansen studied the Icelandic crystal and also worked with scientists at the Museum Boerhaave to recreate its incredible color-morphing effect. Once successful, the designers then applied their technology onto a clock—as the hands move throughout the day, they tell time through color, creating new combinations with every passing hour.

After a heartbreaking photo of a Syrian refugee selling pens in the streets of Beirut while holding his sleeping daughter went viral last week, strangers all over the world banded together to help the man and his family start a new life.
Abdul Haleem al-Kader, the man identified in the photo, is a Palestinian-Syrian refugee who is struggling to make a living in Lebanon after fleeing violence in Syria with his two children. He used to work in a chocolate factory in Syria, but was unable to find a similar job in Beirut.

Between one and two percent of the world's population are redheads, according to BBC News. While gingers are usually thought to be white, pale, and of Celtic-Germanic descent, the reality is that there are millions of people of color around the world who have freckles and fiery locks of hair. French-born, London-based photographer Michelle Marshall explores the stunning diversity of redheads in her portrait series MC1R, named after the gene known as "melanocortin 1 receptor" that causes red hair.
Marshall was originally interested in documenting manifestations of freckles for her visual census. Eventually, after meeting a freckled little girl who was of mixed race, the photographer decided to focus on incidents of the MC1R gene variant among Afro-Caribbean people. She found her subjects, who are primarily black or mixed race individuals, through social media, word of mouth, or random encounters on the street.

From August 27 to September 27, the 19th Century Market Building in London’s Covent Garden is home to 100,000 giant white balloons, an installation aptly titled Heartbeat.

Embedded within the cloud-like mass is a gentle pulsating light, meant to symbolize the beat of a heart and also reflect the Garden district’s sense of energy and dynamism.
The unified orbs are suspended within the grand architecture, infusing modernity into the historical space. Pétillon hopes that their unexpected presence will encourage passersby to view the locale in a different light. “The [balloons'] goal is to change the way in which we see the things we live alongside each day without really noticing them,” he says. “With Heartbeat I want to represent the market building as the beating heart of this area – connecting its…

Who says monsters can’t have problems, just like the rest of us? Artist and designer Teo Zirinis (aka Hands Off My Dinosaur) has created a delightful, on-going series that sheds light on the hilariously distinctive dilemmas faced by fictional monsters. Aptly called Monster Issues, the charming cartoon-style illustrations feature creatures like the Kraken, Dracula, and Cthulhu lamenting over the unique challenges they face in their respective paths of monsterhood.
Life is harder than it seems for these mythical figures: according to the Troll, the Internet hates him; Nessie isn’t very photogenic; and Medusa’s wild, slithering hair frightens hairdressers. And the real reason Godzilla acts out? It's because he really hates modern architecture.
