Immerse in the Creative Juices of Design Week - Interni Energy for Creativity Exhibit

Design Week! Salone de Mobile! Who knew furniture could be so cool? As many of you have seen from pictures online or just walking around the city, Salone de Mobile is much more than just new furniture designs; it’s a movement into the future in stratospheres for art, design, fashion and innovation that have not been previously tested.

This weekend I checked out one of Interni’s largest exhibits, held at la Università degli Studi di Milano, in close proximity to the Duomo. This is one of those exhibits you will want to check out when you have a few hours available on a warm day. The majority of the exhibition is outside, and boasts interactive design common areas for families and friends to sit and mingle.

Families and friends mingle on quirky designed seating.

Upon entering the venue, you are first greeted by quite the multitude of sculptures and structures, candy colored and engaging in their quirkiness.

The Main Green Pasture with the Yellow Tower, Living Line and Monumento a Il Rossetto.

From left to right, we see the Yellow Tower with Veuve Clicquot, designed by Luca Trazzi and inspired by the shape and color of the elegant and delicious, bubbly beverage. In center, mesmerize yourself with Living Line partnered with Velko 2000 and designed by Speech Tchoban & Kuznetsov with Agniya Sterligova. This enchanting curved structure almost mimics the shape of a four-leafed clover. Its lovely to see in the early or late hours of the day, when the light plays perfectly with the mirrored reflections. One of the more whimsical and fun aspects to the exhibition, you can see in the right of the photo, is a the giant revolving lipstick. Monumento a Il Rossetto was designed by Alessandro and Francesco Mending with Deborah Milano.

Take a stroll around the perimeter of the grassy area, and you will find many more exhibitions, many of which are interactive. Take the Leonardo da Vinci-esch sculpture, which allows visitors to step inside one of the many layers of projected sculpture.

If you make your way into the next door open area, you will be greeted by a maze of red. Future Flowers is an installation you will have to see in full yourself to truly appreciate! My recommendation is to find a perch from above to appreciate.

The strikingly red “Future Flowers” Exhibit

Along one of the corridors you can experience a multitude of furniture and even fashion exhibits!  - for you stylish ones. The beautiful couches and chairs in the open air corridors are inviting enough for a sit - but make sure you only look! Redecorating anyone?

Flashing Lights - Fashion Forward Light Exhibit

Personally, my favorite piece of the whole show was Alessandro Michele’s Folkdores for Richard Gionori. There are two on either side of the corridor and they are bea-u-ti-ful! Very Alice in Wonderland- esch for you dreamers out there.

Upstairs and inside, you will find a plethora of other art, deco and design exhibitions. I won’t give too much more away, I want you guys to enjoy and experience on your own. The exhibition is open until April 24th and admission is free. Bring a cup of coffee and a sketch book to jot down some ideas, because you will be inspired from this place!

Until next time, ciao!

Il pane della comunità 14 December 2016 Il pane della comunità

La ricetta è quella rigorosa del disciplinare della Camera di Commercio di Milano: materie prima selezionate, tempi di lievitazione lentissimi, tanta passione e pazienza. Un insolito punto di vista sul panettone milanese espresso da un panificatore artigianale, che definisce il dolce tipico del Natale come “pane ricco”.

7 December 2016 Donatella Brunazzi - Museo Teatrale alla Scala

A Parigi, nel  1911 i più importanti esponenti del mondo della cultura artistica e musicale milanese si unirono, sostenuti dal Governo e dal re Vittorio Emanuele III, con lo scopo di aggiudicarsi all'asta un lotto di cimeli musicali e teatrali di straordinario valore messi all'asta dall'antiquario Sambon. Tra loro vi erano figure illustri: il duca Uberto Visconti di Modrone Presidente del Teatro alla Scala, Giacomo Puccini, Umberto Giordano, Arrigo Boito, Ettore Modigliani, il tenore Enrico Caruso, gli editori Ricordi e Sonzogno. Grazie al loro impegno  e a questa prima acquisizione venne istituito il Museo Teatrale alla Scala, inaugurato nel  1913.

Dal 1 gennaio 2016 Donatella è la Direttrice del Museo Teatrale, le radici della sua vita professionale sono profondamente legate a due ambiti dell'eccellenza culturale milanese, apparentemente distinti ma in realtà molto vicini tra loro: la moda e il teatro.
