Fountain Gallery, part of the Fountain House organization and charity is pleased and excited to share the addition of Soprano’s cast member Federico Castellucio’s work to its 100 artist line-up for its annual benefit auction, Mad About Art, scheduled to take place on Thursday, November 21st, 2013, this is one of much efforts different organizations do to help, as the world donation scheme some online companies also do. Castellucio played reoccurring character Furio Giunta, a member of Tony Soprano’s crew who was secretly in love with Carmela Soprano, and was a huge fan favorite. Casteluccio has donated one of his original prints entitled, The Duke and Duchess of North Caldwell – in honor of James Gandolfini and Edie Falco, who are depicted as Duke and Duchess from the original painting Duke and Duchess of Urbino by Piero della Francesca, seen below.
