What do you know about Milan? In a few words: fashion, design, incredible Italian gastronomy, Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper, and the Duomo di Milano. But we will let you in on a little secret: Milan is a real pleasure to explore. But first, go to these four museums to enjoy Italian art and history. It’s a real feast for the eyes and an inspiration for your mind! All these museums are located in the center of Milan, so you can combine visiting them with the other main attractions and even shopping.

Of course we all know about the most important galleries and museums in Paris: the famous Louvre, the Musee Rodin, the Musee d'Orsay, the Centre Georges Pompidou. You could spend day after day looking at world-class collections of painting, sculpture, photography. But what if you have already seen all of that including the Eiffel Tower, Montmarte, the Panthéon, L'hôtel national des Invalides and the Arc De Triomphe and have only one free day in Paris? Jump on the metro early in the morning and check out these five places!

"Jotaka" is a Spanish Illustrator who creates cute and pretty illustrations using colored textured paper. In ordinary life his name is Juan Carlos, and he lives in Valencia, Spain. All his works are unique, each has its own style, and the characters in his illustrations are very optimistic and funny. The technique of this artist's work is quite simple: he cuts out the paper elements of a new composition and pastes them on top of each other, creating a collage. We were very curious to know a little bit more about him.

When it comes to filming a scene, it's not just about visual effects, it's about setting a tone, a rhythm, about the mood, which can catch the viewer. The films of Octavi Royo do just that. His short movies are interwoven visual and sonic tapestries of texture, sound, and moments, raising important and critical questions. Octavio grew up in Barcelona and has always had a strong affinity for documentary films, and has recently made a name for himself as a travel and documentary filmmaker. Currently his professional portfolio includes more than 15 short documentary films, which he has shot during his travels through India, Sri Lanka, and Colombia. His documentaries uncover and explore not just stories, but moments in time that are so emotionally driven that we cannot help but fall in love with the nature and people revealed in them. Traveling the world with a camera, filming exotic locales and meeting interesting people sounds great. But what is the reality of documentary filmmaking?
