woman in Italy has suddenly become owner of Pablo Picasso painting. Claudia Borgogno, 58, won the Picasso in charity raffle. Her son Lorenzo bought his mother the ticket as Christmas present. The ticket cost €100 (about $110). The raffle draw was made on Wednesday and Ms Borgogno was lucky winner. Lorenzo explained to reporters how he told his mother. He said: "When I arrived and I told her she has won Picasso painting, she was like: 'Please don't joke'." He added: "It was maybe best decision I've made in my life." His mother could not believe she had won and summed up her amazement in one word - incredible. She said: "I have never won anything before".

Picasso painting is called Still Life. It was painted and signed by artist in 1921. It shows newspaper and wine glass on wood table. The charity draw took place in Paris at international auction house Christies. The auction house valued work of art as being worth $1.1 million. However, the billionaire art collector who donated painting to the charity raffle said it was worth at least two or three times more than that. Christies sold 51,140 tickets for charity raffle. All of money it collected will go to provide water for villagers in Madagascar and Cameroon. An NGO will help to build and repair wells, washing facilities, and toilets in countryside villages.
