Fashion and olfactive design featured in “Beyond black, fashion as experience”, collateral event of the Altaroma latest edition I ideated and curated which coincided with “Black celebration”, the other official event I made in collaboration with Altaroma and was held in Rome, at the same street, via di Montoro, smashing area hosting factories of artisans. Three were the different locations that hosted a smashing showcase of creativity made in Italy: the factory Menexa, the bride atelier La Maison Blanche and the factory of lutist Michel Eggimann where was presented the creations by OFFICINE904, Myriam B. and Anna Porcu, combined to olfactive installations smelling of artistic perfumery scents created by Meo Fusciuni, romantic and genius aromatorius, apothecary, researcher of olfactive memory embodying liquid emotions in a bottle, that tells about his journeys, uniqueness of experiences and universality of feelings. The travelling universe of scents by Meo, his two fragrances composing the Trilogia di viaggio, “1#nota di viaggio (Rites de passage)” and “2#nota di viaggio (Shukran…)” dialogued with the minimalism and craftsmanship by OFFICINE 904, eclectic factory and brand of accessories and jewelry created by Paolo Porcu Rodriguez and Silvia Pavanello – promoting and successfully making concrete a free dialogue between art, fashion, design e architecture, giving rise to ideas on the move, signs, symbols, surfaces and shapes becoming projects and products, stories and experiences drawing the Italian lifestyle and taste – that were hosted by the factory Menexa. The approach of matter by Myriam B., inspired by the nature, flowers and corals that are reworked by non-specific paillettes, feathers and gems where it shines a bright craftsmanship, was combined to the third scent talking about the scent of love and composes the trilogy of journey by Meo Fusciuni, “3# nota di viaggio (Ciavuru d’amuri)”, suave dialogue enhanced by the light atmospheres of the bride La Maison Blanche. The poetry by Anna Porcu where fascinations from the past, made concrete by a jewel, the cameo, become contemporary and blend in the leather and silver, joined to music or rather to the creations by the lutist Michel Eggiman and scents by Meo Fusciuni or the two fragrances composing il Ciclo della poesia (The cycle of poetry). Lights and shadows, nostalgia and love, the features of two scents, “Notturno” and “Luce” that were part of a delicate olfactive installation. A myriad of signs, craftsmanship, art, uniqueness and experimentation that catch fashion as total experience and lifestyle. An enchanting afternoon interlude which was sweetened by the experience of taste by a renowned Sicilian wine house, Tasca d’ Almerita along with the creations by Bocca di Dama.

Moda e design olfattivo sono stati i protagonisti di “Beyond black, fashion as experience”, evento collaterale dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma da me ideato e curato in concomitanza di “Black celebration”, l’ altro evento da me realizzato in collaborazione con Altaroma e si è tenuto a Roma, nella stessa strada, a via di Montoro, formidabile area che ospita i laboratori di artigiani. Tre erano le diverse locations che esponevano una formidabile rassegna di creatività made in Italy: la factory Menexa, l’ atelier di abiti da sposa La Maison Blanche e la factory del liutaio Michel Eggimann in cui sono state presentate le creazioni di OFFICINE904, Myriam B. and Anna Porcu, abbinate a installazioni olfattive di fragranze di profumeria artistica create da Meo Fusciuni, romantico e geniale aromatario, uno speziale, ricercatore della memoria olfattiva che racchiude emozioni liquide in bottiglia, le quali narrano i suoi viaggi, unicità di esperienze e universalità di sentimenti. L’ itinerante universo di odori di Meo, le sue due fragranze che compongono la Trilogia di viaggio, “1#nota di viaggio (Rites de passage)” e “2#nota di viaggio (Shukran…)”, ha dialogato con il minimalismo e l’ artigianalità di OFFICINE 904, eclettica factory e brand toscano di accessori e gioielli creato da Paolo Porcu Rodriguez e Silvia Pavanello – il quale promuove e concretizza felicemente un libero dialogo tra arte, moda, design e architettura, dando vita a idee in movimento, segni simboli, superfici e forme che diventano progetti e prodotti, storia ed esperienze che disegnano il lifestyle e gusto italiano – che era presso ospitato la factory Menexa. L’ approccio materico di Myriam B., che trae ispirazione dalla natura, da fiori e coralli che vengono rielaborati mediante aspecifiche paillettes, piume e pietre dure in cui splende una brillante artigianalità, è stato abbinato alla terza fragranza che parla dell’ odore dell’ amore e compone la trilogia di viaggio di Meo Fusciuni,  “3# nota di viaggio (Ciavuru d’amuri)”, soave dialogo valorizzato dalle leggiadre atmosfere dell’ atelier di abiti da sposa La Maison Blanche di Davide Raciti. La poesia di Anna Porcu in cui fascinazioni del passato, concretizzate da un gioiello, il cammeo, diventano contemporanee e si fondono con la pelle e l’ argento, si è unita alla musica o meglio alle creazioni del liutaio Michel Eggiman ed agli effluvi di Meo Fusciuni ovvero le due fragranze che compongono il Ciclo della poesia. Luci e ombre, nostalgia e amore, i protagonisti di due profumi, “Notturno” e “Luce” che hanno fatto parte di una delicata installazione olfattiva. Una miriade di segni, artigianalità, arte, unicità e sperimentazione che immortala la moda come esperienza totale e stile di vita. Un’ incantevole interludio pomeridiano che è stato addolcito dall’ esperienza del gusto di una rinomata casa vinicola siciliana, Tasca d’ Almerita unitamente alle creazioni di Bocca di Dama.

Black celebration, photo by Nunzia Garoffolo

Dear FBFers, here I am again after a long time to talk about the Altaroma latest edition and “Black celebration”, exhibition event I ideated and curated in collaboration with Altaroma which was held in Rome at the Montoro 12 art gallery. The event bringing the same name of the track and legendary album by Depeche Mode – one of most relevant chapters of new-wave music – celebrated a color, its incisiveness, deepness and refinement through a smashing showcase of fashion, art, design and music. High fashion and demi-couture made in Italy, dresses and accessories made by renowned couturiers and vibrant creatives as Renato Balestra, Sarli, Galitzine by Sergio Zambon, Liborio Capizzi, Sylvio Giardina, Angelos Bratis, Maurizio Pecoraro, Lucia Odescalchi, Mario Salvucci, Anna Porcu,  Olga Pong, Arnoldo Battois, Myriam B. and Frank Lo dialogued with the art by the brilliant photographer Marco Bertolini, the artistic installation “Skull” by Sylvio Giardina - a dynamic black book embodied in a black, lighting Plexiglas box depicting the movement of a ray of light evoking the brightness of a color which is often connected to darkness, forgetting the lessons by Caravaggio who successfully impressed in his works the light of black -, the olfactive design by Antonio Gardoni, bright architect and creator of artistic perfumery brand Bogue profumo, who presented the Bogue Mask, a scent diffuser for interiors along with Cologne and the new scent MAAI – scents that are 100% naturals and free from chemical fixers -, and the enchanting site-specific installation created by a marvelous creative, the milliner Olga Pong. The atmosphere which talked about the persuasiveness of black has emphasized by the music by Andy Fluon, founder of Bluvertigo band and artistic collective and band Fluon who reinterpreted exclusively for the happening the famous track by Depeche Mode. A successful afternoon interlude which has enriched by Epicurean suggestions: the creations by the food designer Francesca Silveri from the Foligno San Feliciano Bakery and Bocca di Dama, salted and sweet cookies made in black and the culture of taste embodied in the delicious wines by Tasca D’ Almerita.

Cari FBFers, rieccomi dopo lungo tempo per parlare dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma e di “Black celebration”, evento espositivo da me ideato e curato in collaborazione con Altaroma che si è tenuto a Roma presso la galleria d’ arte Montoro 12. L’ evento, che porta il nome del brano e leggendario album dei Depeche Mode – uno dei capitolo più significativi della musica new-wave -, ha celebrato un colore, il nero, la sua incisività, profondità e raffinatezza attraverso una formidabile rassegna di moda, arte, design e musica. Alta moda e demi-couture made in Italy, abiti e accessory realizzati da rinomati couturiers e vibranti creativi quali Renato Balestra, Sarli, Galitzine by Sergio Zambon, Liborio Capizzi, Sylvio Giardina, Angelos Bratis, Maurizio Pecoraro, Lucia Odescalchi, Mario Salvucci, Anna PorcuOlga Pong, Arnoldo Battois, Myriam B. e Frank Lo hanno dialogato con l’ arte del brillante fotografo Marco Bertolini, l’ installazione artistica “Skull” di Sylvio Giardina - un libro nero dinamico racchiuso in una luminosa scatola nera di plexiglass che ritrae il movimento di un raggio di luce, il quale evoca la lucentezza di un colore sovente associato all’ oscurità, dimenticandosi la lezione di Caravaggio che ha impresso nelle sue opere la luce del nero -, il design olfattivo di Antonio Gardoni, brillante architetto e creatore del brand di profumeria artistica Bogue profumo, che ha presentato la Bogue Mask, un diffusore di profumo per ambienti unitamente a Cologne e al nuovo profumo MAAI – fragranze che sono naturali al 100 % e prive di fissatori chimici – e l’ incantevole installazione creata da una fantastica creativa, la designer di cappelli Olga Pong. L’ atmosfera che parlava della persuasività del nero è stata enfatizzata dalla musica di Andy Fluon, fondatore della band Bluvertigo e del collettivo artistico e band Fluon che ha reinterpretato esclusivamente per l’ evento il famoso brano dei Depeche Mode. Un felice interludio pomeridiano che è stato arricchito da suggestioni epicuree: le creazioni della food designer Francesca Silveri del Forno San Feliciano di Foligno e Bocca di Dama, biscotti salati e dolci s made in black e dalla cultura del gusto racchiusa in nei deliziosi vini di Tasca D’ Almerita.

I recently visited Brescia, enchanting city – where to go and come back – and I was pleased to see along with Alessandro Boccingher and Dario Bonetta, the co-founders of the smashing AplusB Gallery, a small preview of “L’ avventura- die mit der liebe spielen”, group show curated by Lena Ipsen, which pays homage to the New realism film movement, is held at the Palazzo Guaineri Delle Cossere and runs through 5th July 2014. This marvelous building evokes Proustian suggestions and its disused interiors embodies mystery, sensuality and a caressing, poetic decadence which makes it magic. Here I appreciated the artworks of some young German artists, works of matter and dreamy-like etchings, featuring in this exhibition about that I tell more soon.

Ho recentemente visitato Brescia – incantevole città in cui andare e tornare – e sono stata felice di vedere insieme ad Alessandro Boccingher e Dario Bonetta, i co-fondatori della formidabile AplusB Gallery, una piccola anteprima de “L’ avventura- die mit der liebe spielen”, collettiva curata da Lena Ipsen che rende omaggio al movimento cinematografico del neorealismo, si tiene presso il Palazzo Guaineri Delle Cossere e prosegue fino al 5 luglio 2014. Questo meraviglioso edificio evoca suggestioni proustiane e i sui interni in disuso i cui interni racchiudono in sé mistero, sensualità e una carezzevole, poetica decadenza che lo rende magico. Ivi ho apprezzato i lavori di alcuni artisti tedeschi, opere materiche e incisioni oniriche che sono protagoniste di questa mostra sulla quale dirò presto di più.

I recently attended along with my friend Stephan Hamel at the opening of “Risen from the dead”, the solo exhibition of Mustafa Sabbagh which featured rarefied atmospheres and in ontology of human being and a poetry of body under the sign of black. Here I was pleased to see again after a long time the art-dealer Guido Cabib who created along with the visual artist Matteo Sanna in Milan the Format Gallery, where today it will held the opening of an exhibition featuring Mustafa Sabbagh. Another not to be missed happening to enjoy the art by a vibrant artist.

Ho recentemente partecipato insieme al mio amico Stephan Hamel alla opening di “Risen from the dead”, la personale di Mustafa Sabbagh di cui erano protagoniste rarefatte atmosfere, una ontologia dell’ essere e una poetica del corpo all’ insegna del nero. the rarefied atmospheres and the poetry of body under the sign of black. Ivi mi ha rallegrato rivedere dopo tanto tempo il gallerista Guido Cabib che ha creato unitamente all’ artista Matteo Sanna a Milano la Format Gallery, in cui oggi si terrà la opening di una mostra con Mustafa Sabbagh. Un’ altro evento imperdibile per ammirare l’ opera di un vibrante artista.

AVF, a selection of wines curated by Anna Venturini Fendi

Epicureanism as lifestyle talking about refinement, craftsmanship, taste and made in Italy, an alchemy that features in the life and creativity of Anna Venturini Fendi, her continuous work of research which is successfully made concrete in one of the projects she recently launched: AVF, a selection of wines. This project has developed by her along with Pino Tedesco in collaboration with the wine taster Michelangelo di Toma and includes a series of renowned autochthon vine varieties from Italy. Red wines, white wines, a rosé wine, prosecco, sparkling wine and spirits complete her smashing selection. Twill (Amarone della Valpolicella Superior), Bolero (Barolo), Negligè (Brunello di Montalcino), Velvet (Classic Chianti), Voile(Gavi), Spina di Pesce (the best Soave wine I ever drank), Lamé (Prosecco), Decolleté (Sparkling wine) are some of the catchy wines’ names that talk about textures, elegance and reveals an enchanting experience. I recently has pleased of tasting them in Rome at the wine-bar of Villa Laetitia – another project connected to the hotellerie by Anna I will tell you about soon – and discover they feature a high quality and a reasonable price. Being devoted to the flavors from South Tyrol and to a wine, the Kerner, it has been a double delight to enjoy Alamaro, the Kerner wine being part of AVF selection and discover its highly aromatic and at the same time natural flavor which is not intensified by the use of barrique as it often is impressed on those kind of wines. Another amazing interlude – for one like me who usually does not like the rosé wine – has been Fard, rosé wine made of wine varieties from Troy, area of Asia. My wine tasting ended with Acquae vitae, the spirito d’ uva, a spirit embodying a fruity taste, being lightly alcoholic and ideal to be used as a base to create cocktails or to be served at the end of meal with pastries. A selection to discover and enjoy which will be also presented along with the other creations by Anna Venturini Fendi during Bucolica 2014, an exhibition event which will be held from 23rd to 25th May in Vaprio D’ Adda, in the area of Bergamo, a not be missed happening to discover and appreciate Epicurean suggestions and the culture of taste by Anna Venturini Fendi.

L’ epicureismo come stile di vita che parla di raffinatezza, artigianalità, gusto e made in Italy, un’ alchimia protagonista della vita e della creatività di Anna Venturini Fendi, del suo continuo lavoro di ricerca che è felicemente concretizzato in uno dei progetti da lei recentemente lanciati: AVF, una selezione di vini. Questo progetto è stato consolidato da lei insieme a Pino Tedesco in collaborazione del wine taster Michelangelo di Toma ed include una serie di rinomati vitigni autoctoni italiani. Vini rossi, vini bianchi, un vino rosé, il prosecco, il vino spumante e distillati completano la sua formidabile selezione. Twill (Amarone della Valpolicella Superiore), Bolero (Barolo), Negligè (Brunello di Montalcino), Velvet (Chianti Classico), Voile(Gavi), Spina di Pesce (il migliore Soave che abbia mai bevuto), Lamé (Prosecco), Decolleté (vino spumante) sono alcuni degli accattivanti nomi dei vini che evocano textures, eleganza e rivelano un’ esperienza avvolgente. Ho avuto di recente il piacere di degustarli a Roma presso il wine-bar di Villa Laetitia – un’ altro progetto di Anna legato all’ hotellerie di Anna di cui presto parlerò – e scoprire che hanno un’ alta qualità e un prezzo ragionevole. Essendo devota ai sapori del Sud-Tirolo e ad un vino, il Kerner, è stato un doppio piacere gustare Alamaro, il vino Kerner che fa parte della selezione e scoprire il suo sapore altamente aromatico e al tempo stesso naturale, non essendo esasperato dall’ uso della barrique come sovente è impresso in questi tipi di vini. Un’ altro sorprendente interludio – per una come me che solitamente non apprezza il vino rosé – è stato Fard, vino rosé fatto di vitigni provenienti da Troia, area dell’ Asia Minore. La mie degustazione di vino si è conclusa con Acquae vitae, lo spirito d’ uva, un distillate che racchiude un sapore fruttato, è moderatamente alcolico ed è ideale come base per cocktail o a fine pasto, per accompagnare i dolci. Una selezione da scoprire e apprezzare che sarà anche presentata unitamente alle altre creazioni di Anna Venturini Fendi durante Bucolica 2014, un evento espositivo che si terrà dal 23 al 25 maggio 2014 a Vaprio D’ Adda, nei dintorni di Bergamo, un evento imperdibile per scoprire e apprezzare suggestioni epicuree e la cultura del gusto di Anna Venturini Fendi.
