I spent a pleasant afternoon in Brescia, a city I appreciate very much, its architecture where are impressed signs of the people who occupied it (the Ancient Romans, Langobards, the Republic of Venice) along with the other buildings and squares talking about an age – I like very much -, the Early Nineties. A verticality and an anarchic spirit is what I felt, as sentimental traveler I am, walking in this city (historically Brescia always defended itself, from the Milan aristocracy, the Republic of Venice and in the late seventeenth century, during the Risorgimento also from the Austrian people, a resistance which lasted ten days for which it has named the  Lioness of Italy).

The first stop of my walk has been the A+B Contemporary Art Gallery. Here I saw again the bright art dealer Dario Bonetta and the exhibition which has recently opened featuring the works of matter by Tiziano Martini where the paint joins resin ( and I also enjoyed the awesome and moving work by a promising artist who is resident at this gallery, Nazarena Poli Maramotti). Later I discovered ClaraPerClara, place under the sign of hedonism which hosts a hairstylist and SPA – using and selling high-end and natural products – as well as the smashing creations ideated by Clara and made in collaboration with Beatrice Erre, unusual and fun head accessories she made.

Then I ran into another iconic place of the city, Maria Bruna, an olfactory atelier which hosts the most renowned names of artistic perfumery and also a SPA, enriched by the scents of essential oils and a furniture evoking relax and lightness I visited with Maria Bruna, fine researcher in the realm of beauty products and scents (a bright individual who amazed me, as she was the only individual I ever met, to guess the pH of my skin just by smelling it my arm). After these visits under the sign of hedonism I went in a vibrant place, the Tarantola bookstore, an famous Brescia bookstore where I saw an old collection of Lacerba – the celebrated Futurism review – and a display of works by Céline. I stayed downstairs where it is placed a coffee bar and I had a delicious coffee while I took a look at some books. It was an afternoon I spent joyfully in a city where I like coming back.

PASSEGGIANDO A BRESCIA… ARTE, CULTURA, EDONISMO & EPICUREISMO

Ho trascorso un piacevole pomeriggio a Brescia, città che apprezzo molto come anche la sua architettura in cui sono impressi i segni delle genti che l’ hanno occupata (gli antichi romani, i Longobardi, la Repubblica di Venezia) insieme a svariati edifici e piazze che parlano di un’ epoca – che mi piace molto -, i primi anni del Novecento. Una verticalità e uno spirito anarchico è ciò che ho avvertito, da viaggiatore sentimentale qual sono, passeggiando per questa città (storicamente Brescia si è sempre difesa, dall’ aristocrazia di Milano, dalla Repubblica di Venezia e alla fine del diciassettesimo secolo, durante il Risorgimento, anche dagli Austriaci, una resistenza durata dieci giorni per la quale è stata soprannominata la Leonessa d’ Italia).

La prima tappa della mia passeggiata é stata la Galleria A+B Contemporary Art Gallery. Ivi ho rivisto il brillante gallerista Dario Bonetta e la mostra che e stata recentemente inaugurata di cui sono protagoniste le opere materiche che uniscono pittura e resina di Tiziano Martini ( e ho anche ammirato una fantastica e struggente opera di un’ artista che risiede in questa galleria, Nazarena Poli Maramotti). Successivamente ho scoperto ClaraPerClara, un luogo all’ insegna dell’ edonismo che ospita un hairstylist e SPA – la quale si avvale di prodotti di alta qualità e derivazione naturale che sono anche in vendita – come anche le formidabili creazioni ideate da Clara e realizzate in collaborazione con Beatrice  Erre, insoliti e divertenti accessori per capelli.

Mi sono poi imbattuta in un’ altro luogo iconico della città, Maria Bruna, un atelier olfattivo che ospita i più rinomati nomi della profumeria artistica ed anche una SPA, arricchita dagli effluvi di oli essenziali e da arredi che evocano il relax e la leggerezza che ho visitato con Maria Bruna, fine ricercatrice nell’ ambito della cosmetica e delle fragranze (una brillante individualità che mi ha sorpreso, poiché è stata la prima persona che abbia mai incontrato prima a indovinare subito il pH della mia pelle, sentendo l’ odore del mio braccio).Dopo questi interludi edonistici mi sono recata in un vibrante luogo, la libreria Tarantola, famosa libreria bresciana in cui ho visto un’ antica raccolta di Lacerba – la celebre rivista futurista – e una rassegna delle opere di Céline. Mi son fermata al piano di sotto in cui si trova una caffetteria e ho bevuto un delizioso caffè mentre osservavo alcuni libri. Un pomeriggio trascorso gioiosamente in una città in cui mi piace tornare.

It’s a perfect binomial to be in Brescia and come back to Penelope, the marvelous cathedral of conceptual fashion, created by the one and only Roberta Valentini and to see the its new look, made by the architect Antonio Gardoni and creator of artistic perfumery brand Bogue, who is inspired by the idea of staircase and made the interiors more catchy and comfortable. Here I attended at a shooting made by the brilliant photographer Erminardo Aliaj (I used calling Ermengardo due to Manzonian suggestions) and I appreciated the choices made by Roberta. It has been a smashing day which ended under the sign of epicureanism in a delicious restaurant Brescia restaurant, the Osteria Bianchi, where I enjoyed a typical dish, the beef with oil and the companion of Roberta, her fantastic tales that embody relevant chapters of fashion history as well as the bright ideas by Dario Bonetta and Alessandro Boccingher, my contubernals, co-founders of AplusB gallery, who gave me details about Brescia, its history, verticality and independent spirit it saved in the passing of time, something I felt walking on the streets which makes it unique, a place where going and coming back.

 

UN GIORNO A BRESCIA(2): LA MIA GIORNATA PENELOPESCA ALL’ INSEGNA DI MODA, CONCETTI E EPICUREISMO

É un perfetto binomio essere a Brescia e ritornare da Penelope, la meravigliosa cattedrale di moda concettuale, creata dalla sola e unica Roberta Valentini e vedere il suo nuovo look, realizzato dall’ architetto Antonio Gardoni che è il creatore del brand di profumeria artistica Bogue, il quale ha tratto ispirazione dall’ idea della scala e ha reso gli interni più accattivanti e confortevoli. Ivi ho assistito al servizio fotografico realizzato dal brillante fotografo Erminardo Aliaj (che ero solita chiamare Ermengardo in ragione di suggestioni manzoniane) e apprezzare le scelte di Roberta. È stata una giornata formidabile che si è conclusa all’ insegna dell’ epicureismo in un delizioso ristorante bresciano, l’ Osteria Bianchi in cui ho assaporato una pietanza tipica, il manzo all’ olio e gioito della compagnia di Roberta, dei suoi fantastici racconti che racchiudono significativi capitoli della storia della moda come anche le brillanti idee di Dario Bonetta ed Alessandro Boccingher, i miei contubernali, co-fondatori della galleria d’ arte AplusB, i quali mi hanno fornito dettagli su Brescia, la sua storia, la verticalità e lo spirito indipendente mantenuto intatto con il passare del tempo, qualcosa che ho avvertito passeggiando per le strade e la rende unica, un luogo in cui andare e ritornare.

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 spent a marvelous day in Brescia, enchanting city under the sign of elegance, colors, flavors, scents and D’ Annunzio style suggestions (after all the Vittoriale, house of decadent poet, an awesome building, is close to Brescia, in Gardone Riviera) along with the kind collaboration of weather which made everything more special and pleasant. Here I visited with my awesome companions, Alessandro Boccingher and the one and only Roberta Valentini, the AplusB gallery which hosted “Piano Focale a soggetto mobile” (meaning “VRS, Focal plane with subject in motion”), the solo exhibition of Silvia Hell running through 24th April 2014. It was a successful chance to experience the exhibition path, sensorial experience connected to memories which brought back to life a memory from my childhood concerning movement, danger and satisfaction. A place to enjoy and where to come back, created by two brilliant individuals Alessandro Boccingher and Dario Bonetta, showcasing young artists and making a fine search.

Ho recentemente passato una meravigliosa giornata a Brescia, incantevole città all’ insegna di eleganza, colori, sapori, profumi e suggestioni dannunziane (dopotutto il Vittoriale, dimora del poeta decadentista, superba dimora è vicino Brescia, aGardone Riviera) con la gentile collaborazione del tempo che ha reso tutto più speciale e piacevole. Ivi ho visitato insieme ai miei fantastici compagni, Alessandro Boccinghere la sola e unica Roberta Valentini, laAplusB gallery che ospitava “Piano Focale a soggetto mobile”, la personale diSilvia Hell che prosegue fino al 24aprile 2014. È stata una felice occasione per sperimentare il percorso espositivo, esperienza sensoriale legata ai ricordi che ha riportato in vita un ricordo d’ infanzia inerente il movimento, il pericolo e la soddisfazione. Un luogo da apprezzare e in cui tornare, creato da due brillanti individualità, Alessandro BoccinghereDario Bonetta che espone le opere di giovani artisti ed effettua una raffinata ricerca.
