Catching up...

Well, since the 5th December, when we opened, haven't we been busy. La Nazione, a national Italian newspaper wrote an article; Valley Life, the bi-lingual monthly magazine for English speakers in this part of Italy gave us two pages; the local TV station gave us a half hour programme on the monastery, our life and the soldier collection, and the RAI, the BBC of Italy gave us a 5 minute slot on national TV.

We have an article coming out in Curioso, an Italian collectors magazine, and also Collezionare, again Italian. Toy Soldier and Model Figure is publishing soon, and Toy Soldier Collector will be soon after.

Regarding the Italian Properties and the guest house, about twenty articles are now starting to appear in the UK, and a couple are promised for Australian journals. The old film site Reelstreets, and the postcard site Cartolinetunstill are achieving good positions on the search engines.

When are you coming to Italy, Ryan Air offer flights from 50p! And even you can afford that.
