Tuscan Farmhouse at Sunset
Tuscan Farmhouse at Sunset

Certainly, one month isn’t nearly enough time to celebrate all of the amazing women who, throughout the centuries, have made significant contributions to the betterment of society around the world. However, it’s a start.

1000 thanks to FINEARTAMERICA for voting this painting to the “Special Features Gallery.” I am honored to have my work alongside such gifted artists.

In “TUSCAN FARMHOUSE AT SUNSET,” I wanted to pay homage to the Italian farmers who, for hundreds of centuries, from sunup to sundown, have tended their land with a deep love and respect.

     The original 8”x10” acrylic on canvas painting has been sold, but fine quality giclee prints are available here: https://fineartamerica.com/featured/tuscan-farmhouse-at-sunset-pamela-allegretto.html

Certamente, un mese non è mica tempo sufficiente celebrare tutte le donne straordinarie che, nel corso dei secoli, hanno dato un contributo significativo al miglioramente della società in tutto il mondo. Però, è un inizio.

In questo quadro volevo rendere omaggio agli agricoltori italiani che per centinaia di secoli, dall’alba al tramonto, hanno coltivato la loro terra con un profondo amore e rispetto.

 Il quadro originale è stato venduto, pero`, sono disponibili le stampe di alta qualità qui:


Although my WW2 novel BRIDGE OF SIGHS AND DREAMS is fiction, It is based on real events. I felt compelled to write a war novel in which the women don’t play the role of wallpaper or objects of amusement to soldiers and politicians. The women in BRIDGE OF SIGHS AND DREAMS take center stage in a behind-the-lines battle between good and evil.

“In Nazi-occupied Rome, the lives of two women collide in an arena of deception, greed, and sacrifice. While political cartoonist Angelina Rosini zigzags through a labyrinth of compassionate allies and cunning spies, Lidia Corsini quenches her greed by turning in Jews to the Nazis. Lidia’s spiral into immorality accelerates as swiftly as the Jewish population dwindles and, soon, not even her husband, her son, nor Angelina are immune to her madness.”

BRIDGE OF SIGHS AND DREAMS is available in ebook and paperback versions at all online bookstores.

Venice sets the stage for ASHES TO ASHES, DIAMONDS TO DUST a diamond caper gone wrong, where everyone is someone else, and no one can be trusted.

During her Venetian trip to participate in an international art exhibition, Carla Romano brings along her deceased friend’s ashes. But is that all she has in her tote bag? The FBI, Venetian police, and a gaggle of misfits believe otherwise. Five-million-dollars in stolen diamonds are expected to be unloaded in Venice, and Carla is the suspected bag lady.

Slipping into designer shoes and donning her sleuth-in-training cap, Carla sets out in a city of secrets that everyone knows, to solve a diamond caper with more twists and turns than the Venetian labyrinth of narrow streets and canals.

ASHES TO ASHES, DIAMONDS TO DUST is available in ebook and paperback versions at all online bookstores worldwide. https://www.amazon.com/Ashes-Diamonds-Dust-Pamela-Allegretto/dp/1647181828
