This morning we take a look at Italian artist, Maurizio Anzeri, who embroiders elaborate patterns upon found photographs, crating a beautiful combination of vintage and contemporary style. "The antique appearance of the photographs is often at odds with the sharp lines and silky shimmer of the threads. The combined media gives the effect of a dimension where history and future converge."

This morning we bring you some more finger paintings and a process video from Milan-based artist Troilo. Troilo tries to express the uncomfortable condition of being trapped in a void where the rules of society don't apply. There are no dresses, colors, or objects, and we are liberated from useless accessories. His style developed one day, when attempting to translate his drawings into paintings. He found himself using his fingers when he couldn't find any brushes.

Italian muralist, Blu, headed to Niscemi to help spread the message and created a massive mural of a satellite dish machine against an army of protestors.

Italian artist Francesca Pasquali cuts plastic draws at varying lengths and arranges them in patterns to create her sculptures. The seemingly simple concept results in a visually captivating and textured landscape. Francesca relates her work with plastic to ideas in the natural world saying, "Observing nature itself, I transfer the essential being of it. The interlacing forms transform the industrial material into soft and sensual shapes."
