    New deals for the Italian web

    The world of Italian web is for some times under the spotlight: new start-ups try (and sometimes they succeed) to find lenders to develop innovative products and services, old start-ups change hands and hope for a raise, incumbent see new sharholders coming who bring with them fresh funds to further strengthen the company and its business models. It happens, for example, that Sator Capital, company which belongs to the merchant […]

    Chrysalis, free gifts for all

    You know: since I live in Italy in these latest months I was too busy in RL with work, family and taxes to log in Second Life or visit other virtual worlds even if I would have liked, so I decided to follow the latest news only through the Mondivirtuali group on Facebook or via graphic social networks like Pinterest, Flickr or Koinup instead […]

    Isabella Grace Baroque’s tales

    Sometimes it happens that a story disappears, only to reappear after a long time keeping intact its freshness. This is the case of the interview of Luciana Pinazzo dedicated to Isabella Grace Baroque, which we represent to you again together with a new set of images, three years after the first publication, in October 2009. Isabella Grace Baroque is an interesting character in herself: she is a vocalist […]

    Koinup goes e-commerce
