Since November 2009, 3PP has been a labour of love, often written in the small hours of the night. The site started as a diversion from my daily work and previous activity as a tech writer, but has become a research mission, focused on delivering high quality content that is openly accessible online, and also written in a manner that is relevant to a diverse audience, including specialists and the interested public. Whether it is a detailed Raphael case study, a Borgias recap or a book review, I feel each post serves an important role, providing accessible information about Renaissance art and history (and beyond) that can not be easily found elsewhere online.

For readers and organisations that would like to show their appreciation for the content presented at 3PP,  there are two options:

i. A donation of any amount can be left using the PayPal button below. Funds received will go towards site maintenance, purchase of reference volumes and travel related expenses. Use of this PayPal process will generate a receipt that may be used for taxation purposes in your nation.

ii. For readers who enjoy using Amazon for purchases of any type, clicking this portal link below acknowledges 3PP as a referral source, donating a small percentage. No extra cost is incurred on the purchase and the experience of using Amazon is otherwise the same. To use this option, simply click the banner below:

By taking this step, I would like to acknowledge that I am committed to delivering a continued output of quality content that is openly accessible to all. I also hope this encourages other hard working bloggers to value their time and their passion - we put so much of ourselves into this work.

My sincerest thanks to all supporters for their contributions in advance.

Many kind regards

Hello Hasan Niyazi! Great site, full of information that is hard to come across on the web! I found your site while researching a copy of Raphael's "La Velata" I purchased 3 years ago.. My copy is supposedly a late 18th/early 19th century copy (according to the US govt - painting was purchased @ govt auction of seized artwork) I'd love to send you a picture of it if possible!

Dear Hasan,
I have just discovered your site! I was given a set of the Borgias DVDs for Christmas - a series I had always wanted to see as I too am interested in the art and culture of the Renaissance. I am only an amateur though. I was disappointed to not be able to find any comments on the 3rd season which I am now watching. Are they somewhere that I haven't been able to locate?
Best wishes,
Rhonda (Canberra)
