Portofino: History and Notable People
According to Pliny the Elder, Portofino was founded by the Romans with the name of Portus Delphini because of the great number of dolphins that populated its sea.
During Longobardi’s domination the village was the property of Bobbio Abbey of Saint Colombanus, while after 1229, together with all Tigullio Gulf coast, it became part of the Republic of Genoa. Since the late 19th century, Portofino and its coast have been devoted to tourism.
Many historic notable people spent their time in Portofino.
We can remember French poet Guy de Maupassant that dedicated a panegyric to Portofino or the Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi, Sir Winston Churchill or Rainier III, Prince of Monaco and Princess Grace.
Starting from the 50s of 20th century a lot of Hollywood stars, famous actors and singers began to spend their holidays in Portofino: among others Rex Harrison, Rita Hayworth, Liz Taylor, Richard Burton, Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart, Ava Gardner, Vittorio Gassman, Marcello Mastroianni, Robert De Niro, Liza Minnelli, Alain Delon, George Clooney, Madonna, Peter Gabriel, Denzel Washington, Ringo Starr, Barbra Streisand, Rod Stewart.

WORLD RENOWNED PORTRAIT ARTIST
MAESTRO PAUL YGARTUA WILL BE EXHIBITING AT THE WORLD ART DUBAI
ONE OF THE PREMIER PORTRAIT ARTISTS IN THE WORLD TODAY
Paul Ygartua, is a master in portraiture with work featured around the world. You can see his history, accolades, gallery and many projects at: wall9O.com, ygartuaoriginals.com, ygartua.com. Paul is one of the premier portrait artists in the world today, with an amazing gift to work on images at many times actual life size–faces over 1O feet/3O5 cm high! Renowned for his Monumental Murals,including the world’s largest paintings of its kind, at some 3OO feet / 914O cm long and 25 feet / 762 cm high, featured in two segments–painted by only one artist, no assistants, no scale and no projectors.
PAUL YGARTUA IS LIKE NO OTHER PORTRAIT ARTIST
In fact he doesn’t even consider himself a portrait artist, per se. He chooses the faces that represent the History of a People, the Spirit of a Nation. He generally focuses only on the face, a face with intrigue, a face with depth, with a message–he likes to go beyond the generic portrait, and this is why there is a presence, a power to all his works.
The different ethnic groups of the world he finds fascinating and alluring. The Middle East is a haven of subject matter for him and he is particularly captivated by the exotic attire, with the flowing gowns in white and the mystery around the veils and the headdress–it has a very distinguished appeal, portraying the honor, the culture and the dignity of a nation.
THE RESURGENCE OF MARVIN GAYE
Marvin Gaye has a special place in musical history as one of the greatest soul and R&B artists of our time. He, like many others, started his career in Motown amidst the 60’s, but was ultimately able to revamp his public persona through his style, lyrics, and sound. Nicknamed the Prince of Motown, Gaye dominated the Billboard charts with hits like “Heard It Through The Grapevine” and “Stubborn Kinda Fellow” in the early 60s. He often worked with fellow Motown singer-songwriter Smokey Robinson to help produce many of his major hits. His live performances also drew a lot of attention to the D.C. native, as he could belt out his lyrics with even more passion than he did in the studio. During a racially tense decade, Gaye’s music attracted all ears and demanded attention. He got that and then some.
