RoSfest 2010: Even the Skeptics!

I was impressed by the following (short) review by a blogger who admits to not being a fan. Despite her own skepticism, she clearly "respects the classics" and saw the impact that Renaissance had on the faithful:

In the meantime, I added a handful of preview shots to the RoSfest 2010 gallery.… Continue
