Designers In Ten U.S. Cities Find Inspiration From The Critically Acclaimed Series To Create Artistic Scenes In Shop Windows

The Borgias Unveiled Sweepstakes Launches With A Chance To Win A Trip To Italy

New York, NY (April 2, 2012) - SHOWTIME will kick-off the second season of its critically acclaimed series THE BORGIAS with a nationwide design event featuring high-end retail window installations in ten cities including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Boston, DC, Miami and Dallas.

THE BORGIAS returns for a second season this Sunday, April 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Themes from THE BORGIAS that chronicle the epic lives of the original crime family include power, passion, greed, opulence, envy, faith, revenge, sin, decadence, and love. The windows will be unveiled in each market on April 2nd and will be on display through April 19th. During this time, consumers can visit www.borgiasunveiled.com to explore each window installation, learn more about the designers and to vote for their favorite masterpiece. Each vote will enter them into The Borgias Unveiled Sweepstakes for a chance to win a grand prize trip to Italy including round-trip airfare courtesy of Delta Airlines, five nights at the Westin Europa & Regina in Venice, a private tour of the Monte Del Fra Winery, and a $5,000 gift card to spend on BORGIAS-inspired d�cor at VandM.com.

Design and THE BORGIAS fans alike can follow the entire experience at VandM.com where their editors will cover every aspect of the program from each designer's first-hand video diaries to an in-depth look at the products used in each window experience.
