    Dear Susanna,
    I love how you chose Italy/Rome as your passion project. Turns out I’m doing Leonardo da Vinci who happens to be an Italian artist. You have found out so much information, I can’t wait until you share you passion project. How did you end up choosing Italy/Rome? I think it is a great idea! I’ll let you know if I find any information on Italy.
    P.S If you want to add Leonardo da Vinci in your project I have tons of information on my blog. It will save you time in researching all the facts. Tell me how you went!
