Poetry and lightness, an elegy which celebrates the nature and its little hosts, this is “The natural stories”, the exhibition project by Olga Pong, bright milliner and accessories designer who featured in the sixth edition of Floracult, nursery-gardening event ideated by the fashion designer, farmer and social activist Ilaria Venturini Fendi and curated by the landscape architect Antonella Fornai which has recently held in I Casali del Pino, at La Storta, in the picturesque frame of Rome countryside. The culture and love for nature turns into shapes and visions, giving rise to delicate creations – hats and head accessories – unique pieces where it shines a wise craftsmanship and the excellence of made in Italy that has exhibited during the event and enriched by a site-specific installation of matter which reminded a big spider and its webs, made exclusively for the event by the designer. It’s an enchanting alchemy which talks about refinement, savoir faire, uniqueness and documents the overwhelming creativity of Olga. The lyricism becomes clear, incisive and at the same time light sign, key to decode the elegance, resulting from a lifestyle which takes over itself a vibrant aesthetics and an ethic which makes concrete healthy values and pays homage to the natural world.

Poesia e levità, un’ elegia che celebra la natura e i suoi piccoli ospiti, questo è “Le storie naturali”, il progetto espositivo di Olga Pong, brillante designer di cappelli e accessori che è stata protagonista della sesta edizione di Floracult, evento florovivaistico ideato dalla fashion designer, imprenditrice agricola e attivista nel sociale Ilaria Venturini Fendi e curato dalla paesaggista Antonella Fornai che si è recentemente tenuto ai Casali del Pino, a La Storta, nella pittoresca cornice della campagna romana. La cultura e l’ amore per la natura si trasforma in forme e visioni, dando vita a delicate creazioni – cappelli e cerchietti -, pezzi unici in cui splende una sapiente artigianalità e l’ eccellenza del made in Italy che sono stati esposti durante l’ evento e arricchiti da un’ installazione materica site-specific che ricordava un grande ragno e le sue ragnatele, realizzata appositamente per l’ evento dalla designer. Un’ incantevole alchimia che parla di raffinatezza, savoir faire, unicità e documenta l’ inarrestabile vis creativa di Olga. Il lirismo diventa segno, preciso, incisivo e al tempo stesso leggero, chiave per decifrare l’ eleganza, risultato di un lifestyle che assume su di sé un’ estetica vibrante e un’ etica che abbraccia salubri valori e rende omaggio al mondo della natura.

Poetry, lightness, culture of nature, sweetness, an ontology of life and existence which depicts a genuine and conscious lifestyle under the sign of modesty, humility, solidarity, dynamism and kind anarchism. That is the thought of Angelo Naj Oleari, bright and eclectic individual – Fluxus artist, celebrated fashion designer of brand Naj Oleari which during the Eighties softened the dress-code of men and women, author and poet – featured along with Guido Piacenza in the opening talk of the sixth edition of nursery-gardening event Floracult ideated by Ilaria Venturini Fendi and curated by Antonella Fornai which has recently held at the Casali del Pino in La Storta, in the suggestive frame of Rome countryside.

Bright and vibrant ideas on the move are embodied in  “Armonia selvatica, semi coraggiosi” (standing as “Wild harmony, brave seeds”, Ponte alle Grazie editions, 12,00 Euros), the book he made, launched during this circumstance, which directs to farmers, experts of this field and neophytes, asserting and evidencing with autobiographical tales where he talks about his life and experience, flowers, trees and insects with a deep love and respect arising from the loving care he gave in this realm, developed with the opening of the Milan Botanical Centre in 1975, impressed in the famous prints of cloths by Naj Oleari and recently crowned by the creation of International Association Brave Seeds which has the purpose of promoting the method of wild agriculture, an anarchic concept opposing to the monoculture (word reminding me the “One-dimensional man”, book by Herbert Marcuse, documenting the parallel rise of new forms of social repression in the capitalistic and communist society from whose arises the lack of freedom of people and promoting the great refusal, the negative thinking in order to oppose oneself to the methods of control) and considers the dynamism, genius loci, heritage of flora and fauna existing in a certain place, being favorable to the natural development of a certain plot. The one, like me, who is deeply ignorant in this realm, enriched oneself by new consciousnesses, by hearing his talk and reading the book he made. This theme could sound very far from who doesn’t use to take care – like me – of grasses, though he/she loves them, but it’s not like that.

Nature is the metaphor of life and living, a lifestyle made of “a supportive movement”, a collaborative participation which turns itself into participative collaboration. That reminds the idea which is the core of Wikipedia, though it doesn’t come from the ether, but it arises from the land. It’s a cultural evolution starting from the farming and becoming culture, a monition to increase “the communication from the sky to the earth” – as Angelo asserts – “towards the being”. It shines the kind anarchism opposing to the will of power which gave rise to mono-cultural systems of control and supremacy in the political, state, military, religious, educational, working, industrial and unfortunately also agricultural. The idea of Angelo is to remove agriculture from the system in order to get the harmony in every other realm under the sign of a creative spirit, which makes everything change and re-form a spirit of great understanding. It continues talking about agriculture, but it’s not like that, or rather it’ s not only about that. Culture, knowledge, sociality, syncretism, removal from the ethic of “divide et impera” (“divide and conquer”) or the sterile categorical imperative of “produce, consume, die” featuring in the track “Morire” (“To die”) by CCCP giving  rise to a blind consideration of needs in a consumerist way, which impoverishes the man where unnatural and unnecessary needs – as the ones defined by Epicurus – become essential. This and much more I will talk about widely soon is what is embodied in this book, precious instrument to think about and see the world surrounding us through another point of view, being much more simple, clear and healthy than the twisted ways where the individual often gets lost.

L’ ARMONIA SELVATICA DI ANGELO NAJ OLEARI A FLORACULT

Angelo Naj Oleari and Guido Piacenza at Floracult, photo by N

Poesia, leggerezza, cultura della natura, dolcezza, un’ ontologia della vita, dell’ esistere che parte dalle piante, un’ idea, l’ armonia selvatica che dipinge uno stile di vita genuino, autentico e consapevole, all’ insegna di modestia, umiltà, solidarietà, dinamismo e anarchismo gentile. Questo il pensiero di Angelo Naj Oleari, brillante ed eclettica individualità – artista Fluxus, celebre fashion designer del brand Naj Oleari che negli anni Ottanta con levità e ironia ha ingentilito il codice vestimentario di uomini e donne, scrittore e poeta -, protagonista insieme a Guido Piacenza del talk di apertura della sesta edizione dell’ evento florovivaistico Floracult ideato da Ilaria Venturini Fendi e curato da Antonella Fornai che si è recentemente tenuto presso i Casali del Pino a La Storta, nella suggestiva cornice della campagna romana.

Idee in movimento, luminose e vibranti, quelle racchiuse in “Armonia selvatica, semi coraggiosi”(Edizioni Ponte alle Grazie, 12,00 Euro), il suo libro che ha presentato in questa occasione, il quale si rivolge agli agricoltori, esperti del settore e neofiti, affermando e comprovando mediante racconti autobiografici in cui parla della sua vita ed esperienza, di fiori, alberi e insetti con un profondo amore e rispetto che nasce dalla amorevole cura da lui riversata in questo ambito, consolidata con l’ apertura del Centro Botanico di Milano nel 1975, impressa nelle famose stampe dei tessuti Naj Oleari e culminata recentemente con la creazione dell’ Associazione Internazionale Brave Seeds che si propone di promuovere il metodo dell’ agricoltura selvatica, un concetto anarchico che si oppone alla monocoltura (lemma che mi ricorda “L’ uomo a una dimensione”, libro di Herbert Marcuse che documenta la parallela nascita di nuove forme di repressione sociale nella società capitalistica e comunista da cui deriva la privazione della libertà della gente e promuove il grande rifiuto, il pensiero negativo al fine di opporsi ai metodi di controllo) e considera il dinamismo, il genius loci, il patrimonio di flora e fauna esistente in un determinato luogo, favorevole al naturale sviluppo di un determinato terreno. Chi come me è profondamente ignorante in questo ambito, si è arricchito di nuove consapevolezze, ascoltando il suo intervento e leggendo il suo libro. Questo argomento che potrebbe sembrare lontano dalla quotidianità dell’ individuo e specialmente di chi come me, non è neppure avvezzo a curare le piante, pur amandole, ma così non è.

La natura è la metafora della vita e del vivere, di uno stile di vita, fatto di “un movimento solidale”, una partecipazione collaborativa che si trasforma in collaborazione partecipativa. Ciò ricorda il concetto su cui si basa Wikipedia, eppure non proviene dall’ etere, ma dalla terra. E’ un’ evoluzione culturale che parte dalle colture e diventa cultura, un monito a valorizzare “la comunicazione dal cielo alla terra” – come afferma Angelo – “verso l’ essere”. Splende l’ anarchismo gentile di chi si oppone alla volontà di potere che ha dato vita a sistemi di controllo e dominio di matrice monoculturale in ambito politico, statale, militare, religioso, scolastico, lavorativo, industriale e purtroppo anche agricolo. Il pensiero di Angelo vuole sottrarre l’ agricoltura al sistema al fine di raggiungere l’ armonia in tutti quegli altri ambiti all’ insegna di uno spirito creativo mediante il quale tutto cambia e si riforma in uno spirito di grande comprensione. Si continua a parlare di agricoltura, ma così non è o meglio non lo è soltanto. Cultura, conoscenza, socialità, sincretismo, sottrazione all’ etica del “divide et impera” (dividi e comanda) o dello sterile imperativo categorico del “produci, consuma, crepa” protagonista del brano “Morire” dei CCCP che anima una cieca considerazione dei bisogni in chiave consumistica, la quale depaupera l’ uomo in cui i bisogni non naturali e non necessari – come quelli definiti ieri da Epicuro – diventano invece essenziali. Questo e molto altro di cui presto tornerò a parlare ampiamente è ciò che è racchiuso in questo libro, uno strumento prezioso per pensare e osservare il mondo che ci circonda attraverso un altro punto di vista, molto più semplice, limpido e salubre delle contorte vie in cui sovente si perde l’ individuo.

The co-branding collection by Carmina Campus and Vibram, photo by N

It has recently presented in Milan at Entrata libera, awesome concept store focused on the search in the realm of design, the collection of accessories made in co-branding by Carmina Campus and Vibram making concrete the categorical imperative “Save waste from waste”. An idea developed by Carmina Campus, brand of accessories, jewelry and furniture created by the bright, overwhelming pioneer fashion designer, farm businesswoman and social activist Ilaria Venturini Fendi and shared today with Vibram, renowned brand producing the rubber soles, which gave rise to a smashing collection of bags, made by re-using the rubber – more precisely, as Ilaria told me, the first rubber plate, resulting from the start of productive process and therefore it is useless -, thus taking away this material from the dump and turning into something wonderful. That evidences which can create without destroying, respecting the environment and earth which host us. It’ another way to see life, the world surrounding us, another way of thinking, working, creating, making and producing fashion, which emphasizes the idea of elegance as bringer of value and values. A healthy ethic is embodied in a vibrant aesthetics where it shines the approach of matter- and reminds me of work by Alberto Burri – and refinement. The many bags, as the nice rubber clutch bags are decorated by little, fun patterns made of rubber as well as other items, joining the rubber to other materials as leather and fur and are genuine passé-partout.

SALUBRI IDEE IN MOVIMENTO: IL LANCIO DELLA COLLEZIONE IN CO-BRANDING DI CARMINA CAMPUS & VIBRAM DA ENTRATA LIBERA

È stata presentata recentemente a Milano presso Entrata libera, fantastico concept store incentrato sulla ricerca nell’ ambito del design, la collezione di accessori realizzata in co-branding da Carmina Campus e Vibram che concretizza l’ imperativo categorico “Save waste from waste”(ovvero “Salva i rifiuti dai rifiuti”). Un’ idea consolidata da Carmina Campus, brand di accessori, gioielli e componenti di arredo creato dalla brillante, inarrestabile, pionieristica fashion designer, imprenditrice agricola e attivista nel sociale Ilaria Venturini Fendi e condivisa oggi con Vibram, rinomato marchio che produce suole di gomma, che ha dato vita a una formidabile collezione di borse, realizzate mediante il riuso della gomma – più precisamente, come Ilaria mi ha raccontato, la prima lastra di gomma, risultato dell’ inizio del processo produttivo e che pertanto è inutilizzabile -, sottraendo perciò questo materiale alla discarica e trasformandolo in qualcosa di meraviglioso. Ciò dimostra che si può creare senza distruggere, rispettando l’ ambiente e la terra che ci ospita. E’ un altro modo di vedere la vita, il mondo che ci circonda, un altro modo di pensare, lavorare, creare, fare e produrre moda che enfatizza l’ idea di eleganza come portatrice di valore e valori. Una salubre etica è racchiusa in una vibrante estetica in cui splende il sapiente approccio materico – che mi richiama alla mente l’ opera di Alberto Burri – e la raffinatezza. Le varie borse, le clutch di gomma sono decorate da piccoli divertenti motivi di gomma, come anche altri modelli che uniscono la gomma ad altri materiali quali pelle, pelliccia e sono autentici passé-partout.

ZITA

God save Zita” is the event which was recently held in Rome to celebrate the 51st anniversary of the renowned concept store of Zita Fabiani. A joyful atmosphere was enriched by the olfactive suggestions by the bright alchemist and aromatorius Meo Fusciuni – telling about his journeys, experiences and memories through the parfume – where he presented the new scent, “Narcotico”, a hypnotic scent , giving rise to the Mystic cycle(. It’s all about a backwards journey to deal with the future, a song of the everyday life’s holiness is what the perfume embodies. Strong emotions, arising with a silent and deep dialogue with the inner self, emphasized by the notes of incense, benjamin along with the tonka sweetening the olfactive pyramid, including a smashing play of contrast made of patchouli and agar wood, vanilla and musk). Genuineness and healthy ideas on the move, the ones by Ilaria Venturini Fendi, pioneer fashion designer and social activist, creator of brand of accessories, jewelry and furniture Carmina Campus, promoting the culture of re-use, also featured in the event. Here it was presented the “Pictogram bags”, bags inspired by the pictogram designs (made of beverage can bottoms, leather sample swatches and leather leftovers, scraps of PVC, nylon fabrics or other waterproof materials) along with the “Space waste bags” (made of black rubbish bag, flawed technical materials or job lots, the base of aluminum cans, leather leftovers or leather sample swatches) by the brand. It was a nice interlude under the sign of lightness, fun and spontaneity which gave the chance to customers and enthusiasts to know and talk directly with the creators about the products they made, making closer two realms that are usually far away: the creativity and the consumption.

God save Zita” è l’ evento che si è recentemente tenuto a Roma  per festeggiare il 51° anniversario del rinomato concept store di Zita Fabiani. Una gioiosa atmosfera, arricchita dalle suggestioni olfattive del brillante alchimista e aromatario Meo Fusciuni – che parla di viaggi, esperienze e ricordi attraverso –  durante la quale ha presentato la nuova fragranza, “Narcotico”, un profumo ipnotico che dà vita al Ciclo della Mistica(.

“Nothing is created, nothing is destroyed, everything transforms”. The principle of conservation of matter by Antoine Lavoisier becomes a successful metaphor to talk about Carmina Campus and the creative alchemies featuring in the Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Plastic, recycled paper, leather scraps and color samples join, transform, becoming little, big masterpieces of design. Waste becomes fashion. That is the result arising from the creative flair Ilaria Venturini Fendi, bright fashion designer, farming businesswoman and social activist, made concrete by Carmina Campus, brand of accessories, jewelry and furniture she created, promoting the culture of re-use. It’s a new luxury, made of craftsmanship, irony and consciousness. Bags, clutch bags, wallets, mobile phone-cases – condom cases, laudable initiative being part of a campaign to prevent HIV – Ipad cases, jewelry talking about a conscious lifestyle and a healthy ethic. The beautiful and good, the kalokagathia, a political and poetic idea starts to be part of everyday life through fashion and fashion product which is the medium. Refined lines, fun combination of colors and materials under the sign of lightness, comfort and elegance give rise to genuine passé-partout.

ARTIGIANALITÀ, IRONIA E CONSAPEVOLEZZA: IL NUOVO LUSSO DI CARMINA CAMPUS

“Nulla si crea, nulla si distrugge, ma tutto si trasforma”. Il principio di conservazione della materia di Antoine Lavoisier diviene una felice metafora per parlare di Carmina Campus e delle alchimie creative della collezione primavera/estate 2015. Plastica, carta riciclata, cascami di pelle e palette colori si uniscono e si trasformano,diventando piccoli, grandi capolavori di design. Lo scarto diventa moda. Questo il risultato dell’ estro creativo di Ilaria Venturini Fendi, brillante fashion designer, imprenditrice agricola e attivista del sociale, concretizzato da Carmina Campus, brand di accessori, gioielli e componenti d’ arredo da lei creato che promuove la cultura del riuso. Un nuovo lusso, fatto di artigianalità, ironia e consapevolezza. Borse, clutch, portafogli, porta-telefonini – porta preservativi, lodevole iniziativa che fa parte di una campagna per la prevenzione dell’ HIV – porta-Ipad, gioielli che parlano di uno stile di vita consapevole e di un’ etica salubre. Il bello e il buono, la kalokagathia, un pensiero politico e poetico entra a far parte della quotidianità mediante la moda e il prodotto moda che ne diventa il medium. Linee raffinate, divertenti combinazioni di colori e materiali all’ insegna di leggerezza, comfort ed eleganza danno vita ad autentici passé-partout.

It was held yesterday in the Rome countryside, at La Storta, in the Casali del Pino, “Seminare il futuro”(meaning “Sowing the future”), a smashing initiative launched by the chain of organic supermarkets Naturasì and hosted by the organic farm by the fashion designer and social activist Ilaria Venturini Fendi. A return to nature, its rhythm, a gesture talking about humanity, sharing and connecting again the man to the earth: to sow the seeds, the seeds of grain. This event, come to its third edition, was held simultaneously held in many farms inside out Italy. Many people, families and children attended at at “Seminare il futuro” and started to sow at 11:00 am. It was the first time I attended at this event and it was a beautiful experience, framed by a sunny day, I enjoyed very much. Me along with many people – after having a delicious breakfast made of organic products which also featured the delicious bread made exclusively for the event by the Casali del Pino along with other organic products given by Naturasì – started to sow the wheat seeds, a special type of wheat, the “Claudio” wheat, existing since the age of ancient Roman emperor Claudio. A special emotion was embodied in this gesture – to bring the seeds and spread them on the ground -, representing the idea of sharing, giving something of ourselves to the ground, the place hosting us. A precious consciousness, connected to humanity, the respect and love for environment. Those are the values successfully made concrete by the nice people who featured in the event who enthusiastically joined and spent one day under the sign of nature. Silence, interrupted by voices of children, the bleats of sheep, light swish of trees and enriched by Epicurean interludes (including a selection of organic cheeses made by using vegetal rennet and cold cuts by the Casali del Pino).

“SEMINARE IL FUTURO”: LA CULTURA DELLA NATURA COME STILE DI VITA

Si è tenuta ieri presso la campagna romana, a La Storta, ai Casali del Pino, “Seminare il futuro”, una formidabile iniziativa lanciata dalla catena di supermercati biologici Naturasì e ospitata dall’ azienda agricola biologica della fashion designer e attivista del sociale social Ilaria Venturini Fendi. Un ritorno alla natura, al suo ritmo, a un gesto che parla di umanità, condivisione e ricollega l’ uomo alla terra: piantare i semi, i semi del grano. L’ evento, giunto alla sua terza edizione, si è tenuto simultaneamente in molteplici aziende agricole dentro e fuori dall’ Italia. Molta gente, famiglie e bambini hanno partecipato a “Seminare il futuro” hanno iniziato a seminare alle ore 11:00. Era la prima volta che partecipavo a questo evento, una bella esperienza, incorniciata da una giornata di sole che ho apprezzato molto. Io e molte persone – dopo una deliziosa colazione fatta di prodotti biologici di cui è stato protagonista anche un delizioso pane preparato esclusivamente per l’ evento dai Casali del Pino unitamente ad altri prodotti offerti da Naturasì – abbiamo cominciato a piantare i semi di grano, una varietà speciale di grano, il grano Claudio” che esiste sin dall’ epoca dell’ imperatore Claudio dell’ antica Roma. Una particolare emozione era racchiusa in questo gesto – prendere i semi e spargerli nel terreno – che rappresenta l’ idea della condivisione, del dare qualcosa di noi alla terra, il luogo che ci ospita. Una preziosa consapevolezza, legata all’ umanità, al rispetto e all’ amore per l’ ambiente. Questi i valori felicemente concretizzati dalle simpatiche persone protagoniste dell’ evento che hanno aderito ad esso con entusiasmo e hanno trascorso una giornata all’ insegna della natura. Silenzio, interrotto dalle voci di grandi e piccini, dai belati delle pecore, dal lieve fruscio degli alberi e arricchito da interludi epicurei(comprensivi di una selezione di formaggi biologici realizzati avvalendosi di caglio vegetale e salumi dei Casali del Pino).

The bright fashion designer Ilaria Venturini Fendi (of brand Carmina Campus) as ambassador of NPS Italia Onlus created “Ovunque proteggimi” (“Protect me everywhere”), a condom wallet -embodying the culture of re-use as it has made which the leather samples being part of the colors folder – and a bit of irony, as this categorical imperative reminds the invocation to the saints which was into the cars during the Sixties. This catchy and useful accessory, being is part of campaign “Stiamo sicuri”( Let’s be safe”) launched to NPS Italia Onlus to prevent HIV, made in collaboration with All (association for the human rights protection created by Rosaria Iardino, being also Honorary President of NPS Italia Onlusand Adelaide Corbetta) along with the association Donne in rete, is available at the Rome boutique RE(f)USE in Via della Fontanella Borghese 40, at the celebrated Rome boutique Degli Effetti in Piazza Capranica 93, at Penelope, the Brescia cathedral of the conceptual fashion by the one and only Roberta Valentini and at the renowned Milan concept store 10 Corso Como. A nice fetish to live consciously its own life, protecting its own health.

La brillante fashion designer Ilaria Venturini Fendi (del brand Carmina Campus) nelle vesti di ambasciatrice dell’ Onlus NPS Italia Onlus ha creato “Ovunque proteggimi”, un porta-preservativo che racchiude in sé la cultura del riuso – in quanto è stato realizzato avvalendosi dei campioni di pelle presenti nella cartella colori – e un pizzico di ironia, poiché questo imperativo categorico ricorda l’ invocazione ai santi che si trovava all’ interno delle automobili negli anni Sessanta. Questo accattivante e utile accessorio, chef a parte della campagna “Stiamo sicuri” lanciata dall’ Onlus NPS Italia per prevenire l’ HIV, realizzata in collaborazione con All (associazione per la protezione dei diritti umani creata da Rosaria Iardino, che è anche il Presidente Onorario dell’ Onlus NPS Italia ed Adelaide Corbetta) insieme all’ associazione Donne in rete, è disponibile presso la boutique di Roma RE(f)USE in Via della Fontanella Borghese 40, nella celebre boutique di  Roma Degli Effetti in Piazza Capranica 93, da Penelope, la cattedrale di Brescia della moda concettuale della sola e unica Roberta Valentini  e nel rinomato concept store di Milano 10 Corso Como. Un simpatico feticcio da avere per vivere  consapevolmente la propria vita, proteggendo la propria salute.
