There were about 80 works painted with water paints represented at the exhibit. Natalya also held a workshop for those who are interested in learning the technics of water painting. During the action which was held on the basis of gospel church "Gesu -parola di vita" (Jesus - word of life), there was held also a concert where christian musicians and video presentation of "Republic Pilgrim" which was purposely translated into Italian beforehand.
More than 100 people visited the exhibit. For many people it was the first time they met christians from a modern church.According to the organizers of the action my italians were moved by what they have seen. The video about Pilgrim made big impression on the public.
