Designer Alexander Wang

I want to point out for who didn't know him yet, one of my favorite designer, Alexander Wang. He's the most distinguished, vernal, sober and a bit preppy young artist in the nowadays fashion world.
I truly recommend to have a look at his official website for the collection.

By the river

It seldom occurs that the sun escapes from its shyness showing itself to all the inhabitants of Florence. That was yesterday for istance and the same day I drove myself to the river. There I run into a couple.

This is Filippo. When I told him what kind of blog I run, he responded to me that It must be hard to find interesting looks in a city like Florence. Well, I said, "Look at you, it's not so stiff at the end".

The Rachel's

Beginning as a side-project, the experimental USA alt-rock outfit Rachel's eventually became a full-time proposition for its members, Jason Noble (guitar/bass), Christian Fredricksen (violin), and Rachel Grimes (piano). The Louisville, Kentucky, USA-based unit debuted in 1991 with a cassette-only release, Rachel's Halo, before Noble returned to his main outfit, Rodan. Their classically based, lo-fi style caught the ears of the independent scene and a recording contract with Quarterstick Records soon followed. Among their subsequent releases was a split album, 2000's Full On Night, with another experimental outfit, Matmos. With their compositions being entirely instrumental, Rachel's has landed their fair share of soundtrack work for movies and stage productions over the years, and a few of their tracks have appeared in the movies Any Given Sunday, Star Maps, My Dog Vincent, and Une Liason Pornographique. They also composed the score for the Channel 4 documentary, A Day To Remember.

They split up last year and I just wanted to pay tribute to this outstanding ensemble on this page suggesting two of their masterpieces.

At the Disco!!!

Since I came back to Florence I found myself dancing in a club twice. That is weird for such a meek guy like me. The weirdest thing though was that I had fun.

First I heard from Caterina that there was a party at the upper story of the Doris. That was last weekend. You needed a wrist let to go upstairs since it was a sort of privè party. We found it and we went upstairs. From then on I spent my stay there dancing in the ladies room where there was a DJ spinning disc from seventies to nineties all rock. We were dancing in a 15-20 square meter room along with ladies trying to reach the box.
Here it is:



Almost forget to put the picture that I took before going to dance that night. A picture of

Second time was yesterday. You have to know something if you are thinking to move in this city some day. Twice a year Pitti occures in Florence and everything that happen, it happens because of Pitti. You can't even say -"wanna go out to get a drink"- that someone might reply -"sure there's Pitti"-.
Anyway, there was this party at the old Transilvania thrown by the guys from D.A.T.E. which is a shoes brand. Let's see something:

This is Martina, I couldn't not take a picture. She seemed coming out from an American Apparel's photo-shoot. Gorgeous!!!

Florence, my dear Florence

Finally I'm back in Florence and since I'm doing nothing because I'm on the hook for starting with my new job (I'll tell you what kind of job later) all I can do is taking picture of people and whatsoever thing I run into. That's no bad, deep down this is sort of a photo-blog.

I was at Massi's shop last days hanging out with Caterina, Catia and Massi. Sometime during the day it occurred that me and some customers struck up a conversation and eventually I took a picture. So it went:

This is Milosh, if I say right, he's from Serbia...

I do not remember her name (yes, I do, it's Giulia), but she is a plastic surgeon. She could not decide whether choosing this dress....

....or this one.

I liked the black one and that's what she picked at the end.

This is
Miika, instead he's from Finland. He recognized me because of my old job in an other shop. He's such a nice guy.

That's all from our favorite concept store in Florence.

Hometown Style

I was born in 1981 in a town named Siracusa resting on the sicilian east coast. Every morning the so-called city says hello to the sun coming out from the mediterranean sea. I grow up saying hello to the sun every morning along with my friends.

I spent my holiday in my hometown with my family and my hometown friends and there’s nothing better than that, as always.

All of my friends are not so “get into” the fashion, the style or the best outfit to wear for the event. This time though, I see something different. It wasn’t New York of course, with its perennial runway show on Bedford ave, but every day I was pulled by some friends of mine’s style.

Let’s see.

This was for Santo Stefano (yes, my name-day) which would fall on December 26th. A friend of mine organized a sort of Pic-Nic at his country house (the so-called Tenuta Tabbacco) throughout the day, arranging a barbecue and two live set in a row as well.

This is Daniela (nickname Didi). I love her, she's my best best friend. We do not see each other so often, she lives in Barcelona, Spain. Her great passions are the Photography and the sex...I suppose!

This is Eliana, she is the First Lady of the happening. She is from Catania, but she loves Siracusa.....ahahah! Hello Eliana!

And that's him...TABACCO, Vince Tabacco, the hoster of the happening. Even though sometimes he thinks he's cooler than me in everythings, he is a good boy.....GOOD BOY!!!

Not bad at all!

Then New Year's Eve came and we celebrated it throwing a party in a ballroom in downtown Siracusa. We were a lot of people and we were dancing, drinking and making out with....(for the luckiest ones).

I show up for the event with my lovely Lorenza. She had tons of suitor coming to her one by one, but none of them could conquer her. Good Lore, hold out! You deserve much better.
