Site specific Valentine’s..

Goodmorning Valentines!!

How did you spend the world’s most commercial holiday..? Well, I have to admit that i’m not the kind that embraces the traditional Valentine’s day, but it’s a day that brings out mixed and different emotions for each of us.

I spent it with Nikos and Donatello and we’ve been to Onassis cultural centre and Candy Chang’s installation School of the Future, the first of her three site-specific installations in Athens.

The classroom reinterpreted without teachers, books or pupils. Visitors find themselves in a space with a school desk at one end surrounded by thousands of big, red balloons. They are invited to write down a lesson life has taught them in a notebook on the desk. In so doing, the visitors become teachers and students at one and the same time: by taking part in a school of collective experience in which the shared encyclopaedia of knowledge consists of the lessons of their individual lives, they can teach but they can also learn.

After all the fun we sat down and shared our thoughts in the collective notebook answering it’s 2 questions :

  • What do you think is important to teach our children?
  • What do you wish you learned while you were in school?

What do you think..?

Parov Stelar & Band..

Hi everyone!

I know it’s been quite some time since my last post but this transitional period from Florence to Athens was really strange and busy. Long story short, I’m back to Athens, working and I finally  have the time to go out! So 2 days ago I attended an amazing concert by Parov Stelar and his band!

The live started around 9 with the greek group Papercut and continued by the french Proleter, till finally around 22.30 the Austrian musician and his band appeared on stage. A great show, old and new sounds, a Led screen full of colors and a lot of dancing! Looking forward for their next visit!

“Fuori di taste” 2014..

From 6-11 Mar 2014 Florence was full of delicious events due to Fuori di taste, the fair dedicated to excellence in taste and food lifestyles.! Last year I attended only Boutique Nadine‘s event, but this year I had the chance to taste more in food and drink, and discover some new places around Florence!

Saturday for lunch I was at Il Borro Tuscan Bistro an amazing space between restaurant and wine bar along the Arno river. The event was called #ilgiroditaliaintrepiatti – a tour of Italy in three dishes prepared by the chef Andrea Campani. Later I visited the spectacular and inspiring furniture store Flair at Palazzo Gianfigliazzi Bonaparte, to taste the artisan chocolate Autore and Ivaldi’s Moscato D’ Asti. On Sunday I couldn’t miss Boutique Nadine‘s event “Marinai donne e guai” (sailors women and trouble). An unusual tasting of fish products, sweet temptations and lots of craft beer, all accompanied by the amazing performance of Compagnia Brick
