The Italian artist Emiliano Ponzi collaborated with the Negramaro’s lead vocalist Giuliano Sangiorgi for his first NFT collection. It comprises three digital artworks based on this week's prominent themes, LOVE and KISS. The three scenes in the collection have an ephemeral feel despite being so relatable, almost as if the art is a projection of your deepest emotions. The art is in the form of video loops composed of beautiful animated illustrations by Emiliano, and they are given a new life with the vocals of Giuliano. "May I Love You?" is announced to be released on SuperRare marketplace on the day of love, February 14. 

Emiliano Ponzi is an award-winning artist, illustrator and painter, living between Milan and New York. He is famous for his works that appeared in some of the most prominent publications worldwide like the New York Times, The New Yorker, Penguin Books and many more. Famous international brands like Armani, Bulgari, Barilla, Lamborghini, and Murakami had Emiliano sign illustrations. With a unique style, Emiliano portrays the complexity and beauty of humans.

In his career, Giuliano has worked with some of the most important Italian musicians like Laura Pausini, Andrea Bocelli, Mina, Lorenzo Jovanotti and many more. He has also made music for movies and theatres and published two novels for the Italian publisher Einaudi.

The three glimpses of love are made up of moments where lovers cling to their partners, waiting for the perfect time. Everything we experience when we are in love, from the crossing of gazes to the attraction of mouths that brush against each other, is beautifully depicted in the illustrations. The illustrator Emiliano has successfully captured the poetry of the bodies enabling viewers to experience the moments of passion, uncertainty and hope. Whether it's the explosive force of first encounters, accepting love for what it is, or finding yourselves after losing each other, "May I Love You?" takes us through the entire journey of love. 

"May I Love You?" is curated by the famous journalist and critic Giacomo Nicolella Maschitetti. Author and communication expert Federico Bottino signed the text and concept. At the same time, Art Rights, the leading Italian company in the NFT and digital art sector, and Andrea Concas supported and promoted the project.
