Italian woman wins €1m Picasso in raffle

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An Italian accountant whose son bought her a raffle ticket as a Christmas present won a Pablo Picasso oil painting valued at €1m ($1.1m) in a charity draw on Wednesday.

Claudia Borgogno summed up her amazement in one word: incredible. “I have never won anything before,” said the 58-year-old told from Ventimiglia, in north-western Italy.

Borgogno said she liked Picasso and the prospect of being able to hang one of his paintings on her wall was still sinking in.

Her son, Lorenzo Naso, bought two tickets, worth €100 each, in December, sending one to his mother. “It was maybe the best decision in my life,” he said.
