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.

Ethereal Wire Mesh Sculpture Towers Over an Italian Landscape Like a Fading Memory

Ethereal Wire Mesh Sculpture Towers Over an Italian Landscape Like a Fading Memory | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Sculptor Edoardo Tresoldi is known for crafting stunningly life-like figures with sheets of wire mesh. Using these same skills, the artist has created Incipit, a towering installation that recently appeared at the Meeting del Mare in Camerota, Italy. The architecturally-inspired work features gigantic arched passageways with a flock of birds surrounding its peak.
Tresoldi’s use of the gridded material gives the piece a distinctive presence. The thin wire, with its countless tiny squares, makes his massive creation mostly see through. Against the blue sky, Incipit appears as an ethereal, almost ghostly form, a characteristic that’s intensified thanks to the winged creatures suspended within the transparent frame. It’s as if time has stopped, and the circling birds are a memory of what once was there.

Father-Son Duo Complete All 50 States in Their Pun-Fueled Food Map of the U.S.

Father-Son Duo Complete All 50 States in Their Pun-Fueled Food Map of the U.S. | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Just a little over a year ago, Chris Durso (creator of Foodiggity) and his then-8-year-old son Cameron embarked on a fun, visual collaboration known as Foodnited States of America. Together, the Durso duo planned to recreate all 50 states of the U.S. out of various, edible ingredients with a pun-fueled theme.
The project began with "New Jerky" (a lean piece of beef jerky cut into the shape of New Jersey), followed by "Kaleifornia" (a fibrous piece of kale shaped into the sunny state of California) and "Pork Lo Maine" (the northernmost state of Maine made from a carefully shaped batch of pork lo mein). From there, the father-son duo took their time rolling out each newly named state.
We marked the halfway point of this project earlier this year. Today, Chris and his son have officially completed this extraordinary project with their final state—New Pork (the concrete jungle where dreams are made of... pork).

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

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.

Strangers around the World Unite to Give a Syrian Refugee and His Children a New Life

Strangers around the World Unite to Give a Syrian Refugee and His Children a New Life | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
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. Left with no other options, he's been selling pens on the street in order to support his daughter Reem, 9, and son Abdelillah, 4.
Photos of the desperate father were originally shared on Twitter by Icelandic activist Gissur Simonarson, who founded the website Conflict News to shed light on conflict zones across the globe. With the help of fellow activists, journalists, and Lebanese residents, Simonarson was able to locate al-Kader and offer him aid. Simonarson set up a…

Groundbreaking Solar-Powered Classrooms Provide Cost-Efficient Education Spaces in Kenya

Groundbreaking Solar-Powered Classrooms Provide Cost-Efficient Education Spaces in Kenya | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
UK-based computer company Aleutia developed a flatpack, solar-powered, modular classroom that may be the answer to a scarcity of educational resources in developing countries like Kenya. The so-called "Solar Classroom in a Box" provides everything needed for a classroom in one streamlined package, including the framework for the building, computers, electric cabling, and solar panels. Each set fits on a single pallet, and up to three classrooms can be transported in pick-up and cattle trucks to designated construction sites. There, local handymen need only two days and some simple tools—no crane required—to assemble the building, install solar panels on the roof, and set up computer equipment.
Each insulated classroom, which is made of cinder blocks, a corrugated tin roof, and a light gauge steel frame, houses 10 computers for students and one for a teacher. The computer models, Aleutia T1's, are designed to be fanless, economical, energy-efficient, and rugged enough to withstand the…

"I used to work as a fashion buyer for Scandinavian fashion company," the creative admits. "Finally, I found merryme to create modern jewelries and accessories with different combination of materials. However, with M E R R Y, we love to be merry and love to merry people."

Photographer Explores the Beautiful Diversity of Redheads

Photographer Explores the Beautiful Diversity of Redheads | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
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.

Giant Dinosaur Sculptures Made of Recycled Rice Straw Pop Up in Japan | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
September in rural Japan means two things: farmers are harvesting their rice and the leftover straw is being used to make extraordinary works of art. Specifically, the resulting material is serving as a tool for an artist Amy Goda, who's creating some pretty terrifying dinosaur sculptures. The talented unconventional sculptor also has a knack for fashioning other giant beasts, including an intimidating praying mantis, an antagonistic crab, and an angry king cobra.
All of Goda's rice straw-related work has culminated in the yearly Wara Art Festival, which prides itself on recycling the otherwise useless matter. The event is held in the Niigata Prefecture region's Uwasekigata Park and will remain there until the end of November. If you want to see what happens when your average park features prehistoric creatures, you have about three months to do so.

Secret Everyday Lives of Stormtroopers Reveal That They're Just like Us

Secret Everyday Lives of Stormtroopers Reveal That They're Just like Us | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Have you ever wondered what an Imperial Stormtrooper does on their day off? Photographer Jorge Pérez Higuera has, and his series The Other Side takes an amusingly revealing look at what that entails. Turns out, it’s not all that different from us: they’re reading food labels at the grocery store; washing dishes; paying bills; and even relaxing in a jacuzzi with a fancy cocktail.
Higuera first embarked on this whimsical project while in his last year of college in Madrid, Spain, when he received a second-hand Star Wars Stormtrooper costume. He officially started it in 2012, enamored with the idea that these galactic fighters performed the same mundane tasks as everyone else. “They represent the galactic working class,” he explains to Wired. “Let’s be honest, if that future existed, we would probably be imperial soldiers and not heroes or villains.”

It’s no secret that dogs are some of the best friends that we’ll ever have, and three-year-old Siena and her canine pal Buddha show us just how sweet and adorable this bond can be. The two are nearly inseparable, sharing everything from naps to skateboards to bath time. Their cute antics are captured by Tara Prucha, Siena’s mother. When the now two-year-old doberman came to live with their family, she set up an Instagram account called Cutie and the Beast to chronicle the dynamic duo’s relationship.
While a doberman might seem like an unusual companion for a little girl—Buddha is about as tall as Siena—it’s in their nature to be so loving and attentive. “Dobermans are also known as ‘Velcro dogs’,” Prucha explained to Today. “They just want to be with their one human. And he has obviously chosen my daughter. We’re really happy with the attention Buddha is getting. People are seeing how sweet and mellow they can be.”

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.

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.…

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."

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."
