My art show NATURAE at MiC the Sim of Rome Museums, started on 28 March 2011 and closed in the last 30 May 2011,  with a concert event and my last level element of Fire.

From the start there was a great unexpected feedback of thousands visitors. Many publications, blogs, articles, books, photos, etc. were produced, that has gifted to me great satisfactions, so I would like to create here a little summary to get a memory of what happened in these last months.

Finally I want to do special thanks to those who made it possible, the MiC sim project sponsored in real life from Musei in Comune di Roma Capitale, Assessorato alle Politiche Culturali e della Comunicazione Sovraintendenza ai Beni Culturali, Zètema, so to all the people that helped to realize this show at MiC so the curator Mexi Lane aka Marina Bellini also responsable of the official Rome Museums Blog, the talented builders and officers of the Sim that created a fantastic ancient roman empire island to host the art shows: Rumegush Altamura and Patrizia Blessed. Thanks to Ultraviolet Alter for the great music concert performance in the closing night, so thanks to those who had inspired my art project, to my friends and all those who wrote, filmed, took pictures, or chatted  about it and thanks to all people that visited Naturae with fun and curiosity.
