Sting And Gibson Unite For Art
The famous pair form part of a group of art lovers - called the FRIENDS OF FLORENCE - who have agreed to back "worthy" projects in the Italian city.
The association has already pledged $1.6 million (GBP1 million) to art projects - which has seen the restoration of 22 paintings by contemporaries of Michelangelo.
The COUNTESS SIMONETTA BRANDOLINI D'ADDA, the group's chairwoman, says, "Mel Gibson got involved in our project because he's a friend of mine."16/07/2003 17:32
