"Marianna Santoni gave birth to an authentic 'tsunami' of innovation in the photography sector. She is the proof that the 'experts' are not always formal, presumptuous, boring and not easy to understand when speaking.
Marianna Santoni is exactly the opposite: an ability and humanity concentrate unique in this field".
