Aside from the mysterious heart-shaped manuscript known as “J’ay Pris Amour,” Vincenzo Santoro has over the years restored many books and paintings that now reside throughout Italy. Below are some of the pieces in collections near Urbino; these institutions also house other ancient works that can be viewed.

  • “Statuto di Fano,” a book of norms (laws) of Fano, located in the “Federiciana Bibloteca” (Via Castracane 1, 61032 Fano)
  • “Collectione Ubaldini,” a collection of 800 paintings made between the years 1400 and 1600, located in Urbania’s “Palazzo Ducale” (Corso Vittorio Emanuele, 2, 61049 Urbania)

Urbino opened my eyes not only not only to a different country and culture but to a new way of writing as a journalist. I was challenged in more ways than I thought was possible and I am now more confident than ever to pursue my career.
