A few minutes ago, I received a wonderful bit of news from fellow blogger, Roberto Alborghetti. A passionate artist, he’s achieved a milestone in his career based on his impressive torn poster inspired works. Back in December of 2011, I received my first ever blog award for The Versatile Blogger. In paying it forward I listed robertoalborghetti.wordpress.com as a nominee, with the words: “For artistic inspiration from Italia, robertoalborghetti is always as interesting read.
