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.

This is What Elon Musk's Hyperloop Could Look Like

This is What Elon Musk's Hyperloop Could Look Like | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
One of the most radical yet perceivable proposals for the future is entrepreneur Elon Musk's Hyperloop - a high-speed ground transport system that launches aerodynamic capsules around the world. It carries passengers, vehicles, and other cargo through a pressurized tube on cushions of air at supersonic speeds. A trip to Los Angeles to San Francisco would only take 35 minutes, with an average speed of around 598 mph (962 km/h), and a top speed of 760 mph (1,220 km/h).
Musk first mentioned the Hyperloop in July 2012, and since then it's only gained steam. Just this month, SpaceX announced that it will build a 1 mile (1.6 km) long test track to be located next to SpaceX's Hawthorne, California facility. The track will be used to test pod designs supplied by third parties, that are entered into a design competition.
Although there has been much discussion about the Hyperloop, many details have not been released about what it will look like. So, when Austin-based design firm argodesign…

Mother Cat Adopted Three Orphaned Ducklings, Raised Them as Her Own

Mother Cat Adopted Three Orphaned Ducklings, Raised Them as Her Own | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Normally, felines and birds don't have a friendly relationship, but a cat named Della is turning this preconceived notion on its head. Within an hour or so of giving birth on a farm in Count Offaly, Ireland, Della came across three newly hatched ducklings and instead of attacking them, the motherly feline brought them back to her box and began nurturing them.
According to the farm's owners, Ronan and Emma Lally, the timing of this unusual event couldn't have been better. It was just right because the Della's hormone level change from giving birth heightened her nurturing instincts. If she had met the ducklings just a few hours earlier or later, her instincts might have caused her to eat them instead.
The ducklings quickly took to Della, following their new foster mom and mimicking their nursing cat siblings. As they grew older, however, the adorable birds began behaving more like ducks and less like kittens. Because of this, they were constantly walking away from their box as their…

Artist Drills Coconuts into Lamps That Shine Gorgeous Patterns of Lights

Artist Drills Coconuts into Lamps That Shine Gorgeous Patterns of Lights | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Artist Vainius Kubilius carefully crafts lamps that project visually exciting and exotic patterns of light on adjacent walls. Unlike your typical light designer, Kubilius doesn't simply work with metals and manmade materials. Instead, this creative innovator incorporates coconuts into his products, which he designs under the label Nymphs. "The head of the lamp is made out of coconut," Kubilius tells us, "but after careful shaving, waxing, and drilling, it shines like some sort of jewel."
It took Kubilius nine months to complete his first lamp, but he has since improved his technique and time efficiency. Now, it takes the artist only a few days to fully realize each of his creations. Despite his ability to compress the time needed for production, each lamp continues to demand the artist's astute attention to detail, not to mention his skilled hand and keen eye for design. Kubilius tells us that designing light patterns is even harder than preparing coconuts as lamp heads. "Not all…

Adorably Tiny Animals Fashioned into Ceramic Succulent Planters

Adorably Tiny Animals Fashioned into Ceramic Succulent Planters | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
São Paulo-based artist Priscilla Ramos has crafted some of the cutest creatures in her line of ceramic planters. Her shop, called Cumbuca Chic, features adorable animals like capybaras, anteaters, and foxes, formed into functional objects. They’re small enough to hold in your hand, making them perfect for planting succulents or cacti. Vegetation can playfully be displayed, sprouting out of the backs or tops of the figures’ heads. The anteater planter also doubles as a watering can. Its long nose is fashioned into a spout.
Ramos produces all of her delightful creations by hand. She applies glossy glaze to part of the animal while also allowing the matte-finish stoneware clay to shine. It gives her neutral-colored pieces a natural and rustic look, which makes the colorful green succulents stand out.
A selection of Ramos's work is currently available to purchase through the Cumbuca Chic website and her Etsy shop. She recently shared a new piece that's in development—a sloth! It’s almost…

In the year since Rui Veiga first started pursuing photography as a hobby, the Lausanne, Switzerland-based creative has already developed a distinct visual voice centered around striking patterns, stark contrasts, and framing through light and shadow. Combining posed shots with a more candid style of street photography, Veiga depicts everyday scenes as a series of graphic, achromatic shapes, lines, and silhouettes that draw the viewer in.

Playful Notification Device Avoids Beeping Alarms by Blowing a Bubble Instead | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
After a weekend of sleeping in and doing whatever you like, it’s no fun adhering to a calendar come Monday. The design and consulting firm IDEO NY figured that the dreaded day would be a perfect candidate for an image overhaul. Created for Studio 360’s Redesigns series, the team - Karin Soukup, Erika Lee,Top Tulyathorn, and Ingrid Fetell - came up with the delightful idea, Notify.
The Notify is a device that sits on your desk and lets you know when you have a meeting. But instead of an obnoxious beep or buzz, it blows a bubble! The lighthearted, playful act will definitely make you smile and for a moment, forget that you’re at work.
This fun concept is one way that IDEO NY is trying to turn the Mondays into Mon-yays. Notify pairs with PopUP, a calendar app that looks at your appointments and draws attention to opportunities for joy.

NYC Dance Project

NYC Dance Project | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Elegant, powerful, beautiful, graceful – so many adjectives could be used to describe the dancers featured in the NYC Dance Project.  With a combined background of dance and photography, Ken Browar and Deborah Ory capture the exact moments when dancers are at their best, shining the spotlight on an art form that takes many years of determination to perfect.  New York City, the modern metropolis, is their stage, and the flowing movement they masterfully create is their artwork.  
We got in contact with Ken and Deborah to ask them a few questions about the series.  Read our interview with them, below. 


Who are the artists behind NYC Dance Project?
NYC Dance Project was created by Ken Browar and Deborah Ory, who live in Greenpoint, Brooklyn (with two teenage ballet students). We have created this site to showcase the world of dance and dancers, based in New York City.

Father Illustrates Animals Every Day to Teach His Son the Alphabet

Father Illustrates Animals Every Day to Teach His Son the Alphabet | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Web designer Kyson Dana decided that he wanted to take a break from his career to beautifully illustrate the entire alphabet. The imaginative artist's mission went beyond practicing his skills at rendering all 26 letters. This project meant creating a solid sketch every single day, with an animal theme, for his newborn son to learn the alphabet.
In order to help push him towards his goal, the artist decided to challenge his friend Jeffrey Smith (who is also a fellow illustrator) to a sketchbook duel. The rules of this challenge meant they each had to complete a sketch each day and post it on Instagram by midnight. Additionally, Dana explains on his website, "The animal had to start with the letter of the day and the composition could be created using any medium." After a full 26 days, the two illustrators successfully completed the challenge and never once skipped a day.
Ultimately, what resulted from this artistic competition is a series of illustrations that are unique and full of…

Intricately Handmade Collages Offer a Seamless View of Otherworldly Scenes | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Artist John Turck creates otherworldly collages by hand that seamlessly blend elements from pop culture, nature, and architecture. "Most of my time is spent collecting collage materials from books and magazines. I’ll cut them up in advance, and then file them away," Turck told Castle Foundations. "I don’t always have a concept in mind when I start, usually I’ll lay out a few key images that I’d like to work with for the day, and then I’ll play around with different combinations until I find what I feel will be the absolute best fit."
The collage artist's main goal is to design pieces that look as if they were digitally created in Photoshop. Due to his traditional process, the handmade, slightly vintage-looking nature of each collage evokes a distinct sense of nostalgia. As various worlds come together in the timeless works of art, viewers are able to feel as though they are part of a surreal world filled with vivid colors, pop art, captivating shapes, and unusual symbols that are sure…

For several years, artist Stefan Siverud has been decorating snails' shells with colorful, eye-catching designs for his Snailpimp project. Thus far, the series has featured tiny mollusks sporting anything from a vibrant rainbow or an impressive miniature lighthouse to the McDonald's logo. Aside from being fun, these creations are actually saving the lives of snails by allowing them to stand out.
With new multicolored exteriors, these snails are more visible from above. This, in turn, means that the snails are less likely to get stepped on by unsuspecting humans. And for anyone worried about the paints being harmful and countering this creative act of kindness, Siverud uses non-toxic paints that aren't life-threatening, just really great to look at.

Adorable Blind Pug and Judge Are Inseparable Best Friends

Adorable Blind Pug and Judge Are Inseparable Best Friends | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
It was only 7 months ago when Mikey the pug was brought into the Michigan Humane Society, suffering from demodectic mange (an immune system disorder due to an overpopulation of mites) and glaucoma, which was causing the poor pup to go blind and left him in serious pain. At that point, the MHS veterinarians decided that the best course of action for Mikey to lead a healthy and comfortable life would be to remove his eyes.
Despite his health setbacks and all he's been through, Mikey's life took an uplifting turn when Judge Sabrina Johnson adopted him from Michigan Pug Rescue in March. In fact, both of their lives changed for the better. Mikey has offered Johnson a reason to smile each day, despite the tough cases she deals with daily. She even brings him along to work, allowing the lovable little guy to spread his cheer and love of life around. “When people meet him, they melt.

Polish designer Zuzia Kozerska enjoys baking sweet treats, but she found that decorating them was an entirely different (and more difficult) task. “I never really managed to make my pastries look fun and delicious without spending the whole weekend on it,” she writes. So, to solve this problem, Kozerska founded Valek—a popular Etsy shop that sells solid-beech rolling pins laser-embossed with an array of whimsical designs.
Kozerska's pins have a variety of bakers' interests in mind. Those who enjoy robots, flowers, animals, and geometric shapes will find something to love in these repeat-pattern arrangements. They cover the product’s cylinder shape, so that means it’s easy to imprint them on the dough. Just roll the pin and use a cookie cutter to separate into individual servings. This simplified technique takes the guesswork out of decorating!

Inspiring Chinese Woman Travels 1,500 Miles to Rescue 100 Dogs from a Dog-Meat Festival

Xiaoyun Yang, a retired teacher in China, has emerged as a hero to dog lovers everywhere after she traveled more than 1,500 miles and spent over $1,100 in order to save 100 dogs from being slaughtered and eaten during the controversial dog-meat festival in the southern city of Yulin.
The annual festival, during which as many as 10,000 dogs are killed in order to celebrate the summer solstice, has attracted fierce opposition from the international community, celebrities, and local activists in China. While meat consumption may differ from country to country depending on cultural practices, activists are largely taking issue with how the dogs are procured, treated, and slaughtered. Many dogs killed for meat are family pets stolen from homes, or are strays captured on the street. They are often crammed tightly in cages, increasing the risk of spreading diseases. Finally, many of the slaughtering methods—such as being boiled alive or beaten to death—are considered to be unnecessarily…

Austin-based artist Tim Doyle pays homage to famous locales from popular films in his series called UnReal Estate IV: The Movie. It’s part of his fantastic on-going UnReal Estate project, and this isn’t the first time we’ve admired Doyle’s beautiful depictions of places in popular culture. Previously, he has reinterpreted television icons like Sesame Street, Monk’s Cafe, and Moe’s Tavern. Now, he’s turned his dark and detailed style towards Blockbuster hits and cult-classics, putting a unique spin on movies we’ve probably watched over and over.
Doyle’s comic book-like approach reconstructs places that are often as memorable as the characters in the films. In Pulp Fiction, Jack Rabbit Slim’s restaurant is the site of the famous dance scene between Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) and Vincent Vega (John Travolta).

Artist Micah Milner has transformed his Instagram feed into a never-ending, continuous scroll of designs that revolve around pop culture.

As you scroll through Milner's feed, you can't help but notice that his colorful, psychedelic works of art are a perfectly cohesive representation of modernized pop art.
If you recognize several familiar faces on Milner's artistic feed, it's because it is constantly inspired by nostalgic icons and current events that have been plotted out in advance. "The first 70 posts or so were a test of sorts," the artist told Brit + Co. "I did them all at the same time just to see what type of reaction it would get.

Eye-Popping Works of Street Art Made Using Masking Tape

Eye-Popping Works of Street Art Made Using Masking Tape | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Unlike other street artists, Buff Diss's medium of choice for decorating crumbling walls, the sides of old buildings, and asphalt roads with eye-popping art is masking tape. Treating the city as his canvas, the Australian artist creates strikingly unique street illustrations ranging in subject matter—from mythical figures, to geometric patterns, to giant hands reaching out for passersby. Strips of tape become nearly unrecognizable as Diss shapes them into wonderfully complex lines varying in thickness and curve.
The temporary nature of masking tape gives Diss's murals a sense of unpredictable transience. If a piece is left alone long enough to bond to the surface of the building or ground, then the artwork could remain intact for years. In other cases, the graffiti could be gone the next morning, removed by city officials or curious bystanders.

These life-like images showcase profiles of world-famous actresses—including: Natalie Portman, Angelina Jolie, and Nicole Kidman—who are thoughtfully and serenely gazing off into the distance.
Morettini was able to painstakingly recreate the distinct bone structure and contours of these well-known faces within each portrait. His precise brushstrokes allow the facial angles and curves to stand out, while the use of watercolor adds a touch of softness that makes the paintings unique.

Miami-based artist Douglas Hoekzema, also known as Hoxxoh, uses vibrant colors to create murals that seem to burst with energy. The abstract designs cover the sides of buildings and stadiums, mesmerizing passersby with their hypnotic patterns. Undulating waves and psychedelic circular shapes are clad in bright blues, lime greens, and sunny yellows to make them instantly catch your eye.
The complexity of Hoxxoh’s murals look as though they could be computer generated. Compositions have incredible, tiny details and precision that you wouldn’t expect on such a large scale. All of his designs, however, are drawn freehand.
The theme of time plays an important role in Hoxxoh’s paintings, and he sums up his underlying concept with the phrase, “Time Waits for No Man.” Although there’s a decorative aspect to these murals, their radiating shapes also symbolize gears and moving parts - similar to the inner workings of a clock.

An Oklahoma-based girls softball team, called Freeze, is teaching everyone what it really means to play like a girl. The team might be comprised of 4- and 5-year-old girls, but their group photo proves they're just as tough as any other athletes, which is exactly what photographer Betsy Gregory was going for.
Gregory, who is a professional photographer and also the mother of the team's catcher, was determined to get creative when it came to capturing the girls' team photo. She came up with the fun idea of having the little girls dress up as Queen Elsa from Frozen, a movie all of them were obsessed with—in fact, the girls initially wanted to name their team the "Sparkling Elsas."
With all of the girls dressed as their favorite ice queen, Gregory made sure to guide them, asking each girl to make a tough face for the picture. After the snapshot was taken, the artist posted the picture online and, from there, it went viral.

Artist Uses Fire to Shape Delicate Glass Sculptures Inspired by Sea Life Forms

Artist Uses Fire to Shape Delicate Glass Sculptures Inspired by Sea Life Forms | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Using fire to manipulate thin rods of glass, artist Emily Williams creates delicate sculptures of organic life forms like coral, seaweed, and jellyfish. Fragile fronds, veins, and tentacles appear to ripple when cast under light, as if each plant and creature were made of the very ocean they were inspired by. Looking at the artist's work, it's amazing to think of the meticulous effort that went into shaping rigid rods into incredibly complex webs of glass.
From an early age, Williams has been fascinated by art, science, and natural history, thanks in part to the influence of her family. These passions morphed into a long career as an artist engaged in shaping physical forms using a variety of media like cast metal, cast glass, welding, and more. As her ideas and craft evolved, Williams fell in love with flameworking glass using a hand torch, which allows her to work through her concepts quickly. Her current glass sculptures of complex sea life forms are influenced by 19th century…

Although a graphic designer by day, Acaster has gained wider recognition for the rich nature scenes that he captures with his camera, even taking home the title of British Wildlife Photographer of the Year in 2014. Many of his striking photos are taken near his home along the border of Suffolk and Norfolk, including densely wooded areas like Thetford Forest and Thorpe Wood.
"Rather than simply recording the scene before me, I always strive to instill a sense of drama and emotion into my images," says Acaster. As a result, his photos often appear like cinematic stills infused with a beautifully atmospheric quality. Looking at his images, one can almost imagine motion sequences of gently rolling fog, mysterious silhouettes lit by sunbeams, and even the sound of wind whispering across a forest floor covered in leaves.
