Dear Beda,
I wouldn't be able to express myself better than Ilario did... 
Particularly the request for your participation !

Actually, one idea that came to my mind reading your valuable comment 
would be to organize this operation as a contest : photographs to 
register and choose some of the goods and, at the end of the  period 
(maybe 2-3 months), the board (or a determined jury) to select they 
favorite 12-13 pictures to be granted with a prize. We could as well 
print a calendar with those pictures as memory.

What do you think about it ?
