Best of 2013

2013 was the year of the great discoveries and rebirths. In this year I rediscovered many passions that, for various reasons, I was close to forget.
This was the year in which became "official", in which there was the turning point from a profile on Tumblr (which is still active here) to become a custom site managed by myself, and in part by my better half, Omar. Good contacts and relationships with other people who love the world of art, design, and everything that revolves around it have been achieved. I had great opportunities, putting myself into play, in a way that perhaps I would never have imagined a few years ago.

Yet fotografi al centro

La cosa che più mi ha colpita è la rapidità con cui Yet magazine ha conquistato lettori e centri culturali. In meno di un anno ha raggiunto un livello di contenuto e capacità sempre maggiore. L’obiettivo che si pone è mostrare l’attività vera del fotografo, senza nascondere nulla.
Nato da uno sfogo, Yet magazine è un prodotto editoriale indipendente. Senza tema né genere ogni numero di Yet ha una storia, dalla prima serie fotografica all’ultima.
Ho incontrato Nicolas Polli e Salvatore Vitale per meglio conoscere e capire questo mondo.

graffitismo: storia e sviluppi di un movimento - non necessità artistica, ma esigenza individuale

Contrariamente a come si possa pensare, il graffitismo non è semplicemente disegnare sui muri delle città, è molto di più.
Movimento che ha inizio nel 1970 negli Stati Uniti e diffusosi nel resto del mondo, ha una grande storia e cultura alle spalle.

Joel Daniel Phillips

These works made by Joel Daniel Phillips left me without words the first time that I saw them. It's incredible how Joel creates his work: the photo realistic and detailed images he creates are more than magnificent.

abilità esecutiva e distaccata ironia in ceramica - Bertozzi&Casoni: un lungo percorso insieme

Lavori interamente fatti in ceramica, materiale che richiede grande cura ed abilità d'uso, non sono comuni come la pittura nel mondo delle arti. Bertozzi&Casoni, società fondata nel 1980 da due artisti italiani, basa tutto il suo lavoro sull'utilizzo di questa materia tanto bella quanto delicata.

La memoria per non dimenticare - racconto de l'AM

Andando verso Gentilino la curiosità aumenta passo dopo passo. Ho sentito parlare tanto di questo evento che unisce arte, musica ed editoria al profondo tema della memoria, e fin da subito mi è sembrato promettere bene.
Davanti a Villa Ambrosetti c’era un gran andirivieni di persone che entravano e uscivano - elemento che mi ha fatto fin da subito intendere che si trattava di un evento che è stato capace di coinvolgere ed incuriosire tante persone, di differenti età ed interessi, diverse tra loro.

iittala's apartment

The famous brand Iittala has found its place! This is the new showroom in Stockholm completely dedicated to one of my favorite nordic brand. Looking at the pictures you can get inspired by some details and unusual elements such as trees in the kitchen and the silhouette of Leimu, a new lamp created by the brand, that seems to be a big glass of wine painted in the living room.

from the knees of my nose to the belly of my toes by alex chinneck

Alex Chinneck, a British artist, gave life to an old house that has been abandoned for 11 years, creating a new facade with the appearance that is just slipped down.
The most interesting point of this artwork is that is born thank to a completely new collaboration between the artist and some british industries, using donated materials and professional services by more or less ten companies.
It is absolutely better to see a house like this instead of a decadent..isn't it?

Fishpond City

1500 goldfishes, 56 glass boxes and 1:60 scale are the numbers of Fishpond City. Born by the collaboration between Raoul Bukor, Christian Lindle and Lu Yang, this installation is the reflection of the rapid urban development in central China. The installation is a 1:60 scale model of a nearby construction site near the capital of Shaanxi.

Heather Hansen and her kinetic art

"Emptied Gestures is an experiment in kinetic drawing. In this series I am exploring ways to download my movement directly onto paper, emptying gestures from one form to another."

Heather Hansen is an artist that managed to find his own way to narrate the movements of the body by capturing it on paper canvasses. In fact, in this series she combines visual art and dance, creating images characterized by a strong sense of energy, as if a process full of feelings and emotions have been transferred to paper.
The way she prepare the space and the importance of the usage of her body reminds me Jackson Pollock, one of the most famous artist of action painting. Can you also notice this similarity?

Sunday inspiration

In this rainy Sunday I want to propose you some home-inspirations that can make your Sunday comfy and relaxing as never before. During my daily "adventures" in the web, I found these incredible pictures of a gorgeous home: it's all about light tones of colors and wood, with cotton details. Personally, I really love this kind of combination, and looking at these pictures I can feel the sensation of walking in barefoot on that wooden floor, have a break while drinking a cup of coffee while sitting in the chair and looking through the window and then, a quick nap in the most inviting bed!
This could be one of my dream home.
