Paolo Ramponi,
We won't keep you in suspense ... Congratulations!
Your site has been awarded a Master of Content Award from NetMagick.Net. When we came out with the Master of Content award, it was sites such as yours that we had in mind for recipients. Castles of Tuscany is indeed a content rich site, in fact probably the consummate site for its subject matter in the world. It is a reference, a history guide, a travelogue, and photographic essay all rolled into one. It is obvious the amount of time and effort you have placed into both your research and presentation. On behalf of the judging panel for NetMagick.Net I want to thank you for the honor of asking us to review your site.
It was our pleasure! Lauranna Webmistress of NetMagick.Net Rated 5.0 by Award Sites!
