Surreal motifs, irony, the elegance of a light and irreverent aesthetics which dialogues with the art, joins to the fine craftsmanship of high jewelry made in Italy, giving rise to little, precious masterpieces. Lightness becomes weight subtraction, the Calvino’s “paradigm (embodied in the book he made “American lessons”) finds a new context in the jewelry. Design turns into art, made of unusual shapes, signets enhancing the gems, their lightness and lightening their weight. Gold lips, eyes and nose shine of the light of diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, rubies and are also enriched by the delicacy of pearls that refine some creations. All that is the universe on the move of bright jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez which is impressed in the new collection she made, enriched by marvelous nose piercing earrings and smashing bracelets, successfully making concrete the development and success of a vibrant and genuine concept.

IRONIA ED ELEGANZA, L’ UNIVERSO PREZIOSO DI DELFINA DELETTREZ

Motivi surreali, ironia, l’ eleganza di un’ estetica lieve e irriverente che dialoga con l’ arte si unisce alla fine maestria artigiana dell’ alta gioielleria made in Italy, dando vita a piccoli, preziosi capolavori. La leggerezza diviene sottrazione di peso, paradigma di calviniana memoria (racchiuso nel suo libro “Lezioni americane”) che trova un nuovo contesto nella gioielleria. Il design si trasforma in arte, fatta di forme insolite, castoni che esaltano le pietre preziose, la loro luminosità e ne alleggeriscono il peso. Labbra, occhi e nasi d’ oro brillano della luce di diamanti, zaffiri, smeraldi, rubini e sono arricchiti anche dalla delicatezza delle perle che rifiniscono alcune delle creazioni. Tutto questo è l’ universo in movimento della brillante designer di gioielli Delfina Delettrez che è impresso nella sua nuova collezione, la quale si arricchisce di magnifici piercing da naso e formidabili bracciali, concretizzando felicemente lo sviluppo e il successo di un concept vibrante e autentico.

Ilaria Venturini Fendi talking about the event before its start, photo by N

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).

Modernism, avant-garde, refinement and experimentation, symmetry and lightness, an elegance talking about the art of made in Italy and culture, this is the core of Spring/Summer 2015 collection by Fendi, paying homage to the architecture, the Rome Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana ( Rationalist building – hosting the brand Headquarters – which has drawn inspiration by the metaphysical painting by De Chirico) and its arches. Colors are light, natural and basic(black and white).  A wise game of cuts and transparencies enhances the silhouette along with marvelous prints and unusual reinterpretations in sophisticated way of cloths as denim. It features the orchid-motif  being embroidered in the invitation of fashion show and is impressed on shirts, trousers, dresses and accessories, bags ( as the legendary Baguette bag, enriched by many decorations and Peekaboo bag) and shoes, sandals, genuine masterpieces.

Fendi Spring/Summer 2015, photo by N

Modernismo, avanguardia, raffinatezza e sperimentazione, simmetria e leggerezza, un’ eleganza che parla dell’ arte del made in Italy e di cultura, questo, il cuore della collezione primavera/estate 2015 di Fendi che rende omaggio all’ architettura, al Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana di Roma (costruzione razionalista – e sede centrale del marchio – che ha tratto ispirazione dalla pittura metafisica di De Chirico) e alle sue arcate. I colori sono tenui, naturali e basici (bianco e nero). Un sapiente gioco di tagli e trasparenze esalta la silhouette unitamente a splendide stampe e insolite reinterpretazioni in chiave sofisticata di tessuti quali il denim. Protagonista, il motivo a orchidea che è ricamato nell’ invito alla sfilata ed è impresso su camicie, pantaloni, abiti e accessori, borse( quali la leggendaria Baguette, arricchita da plurime decorazioni e la Peekaboo) e le scarpe, i sandali, autentici capolavori.

Floracult, the event celebrating the nature and its culture, created by Ilaria Venturini Fendi and curated by Antonella Fornai, which was held in the Rome countryside, in La Storta, at I Casali del Pino, has been the successful chance to discover and enjoy flowers, plants, the little, big hosts of natural world, meet awesome companions of Epicurean interludes and share new flavors. Concerning the Epicurean side of my stay at Floracult, at I Casali del Pino – which is a smashing farming company, producing cheeses, cold cuts, pastries and other delights and is the place where is also the factory of Carmina Campus, brand of accessories, jewelry and furniture promoting the culture of re-use and sustainability, created by Ilaria Venturini Fendi – I was pleased of discover and enjoy the wines and spirits selected by Anna Venturini Fendi about I will talk about much more soon. It has been a smashing, magic experience, an unforgettable edition of an event, successfully making concrete that healthy ethic I celebrate.

Riguardo alla dimensione epicurea della mia permanenza a Floracult, a I Casali del Pino – che è una formidabile azienda agricola che produce, formaggi, salumi, torte e altre delizie ed è anche il luogo in cui si trova la factory di Carmina Campus, brand, di accessori, gioielli e componenti di arredo che racchiude in sé la cultura del riuso e la sostenibilità, creato da Ilaria Venturini Fendi – mi ha fatto molto piacere scoprire e gustare i vini e i distillati selezionati da Anna Venturini Fendi dei quali parlerò presto più approfonditamente. È stata una formidabile, magica esperienza, un’ edizione indimenticabile di un evento che concretizza felicemente quella salubre etica che celebra.

The fifth edition of Floracult, event celebrating the nature and its culture, created by Ilaria Venturini Fendi and curated by Antonella Fornai – which was held in the Rome countryside, at La Storta, in I Casali del Pino -, opened with a series of smashing initiatives as the talk moderated by the journalist and author Ida Tonini starring Meo Fusciuni, modern alchemist who talked about his experiences with herbs, scents and his brand of artistic perfumery.

Meo, nice and bright individual, who seemed me like the cousin of Fabio Quaranta (brilliant fashion designer and professor at the Iuav University of Venice). That became his second nick name adding to Meo Fusciuni, art name chosen by Giuseppe Imprezzabile, Sicilian man who is based in Salsomaggiore, of whose the family name Fusciuni arises from the Sicilian slang and stands as “to flow”. Meo told about his relationship with the scents, experience arisen for random. He studied chemistry, then worked with disabled people, became herbalist and later started studying anthropology and travelling. His scents have arisen during his journeys. Passion, love and nostalgia are some emotions the lack of love as it happened with “Notturno” and “Luce”, two fragrances that embodied the feelings of Meo, the nostalgia for his love, her life companion Federica Castellani, who were far away from him and her return, celebrate his love for her, featuring the warmth and sensuality of patchouli (one of my favorite fragrances along with vetiver and opoponax), spicy notes that are sweetened by tonka. Olfactive experiences and alchemic moments, connected to poetry and magic suggestions under the sign of Crowley’s experiences (another thing confirming the spiritual connection to Fabio Quaranta, his love for the bands that are Crowley inspired as Psychic TV, Coil and Current 93).

Meo, simpatica e brillante individualità che mi sembrava il cugino di Fabio Quaranta( brillante fashion designer e docente presso l’ Università Iuav di Venezia). Questo è diventato il suo secondo nick name che si aggiunge a Meo Fusciuni, nome d’ arte scelto da Giuseppe Imprezzabile, siciliano che risiede Salsomaggiore, il cui cognome deriva dal dialetto siciliano e sta a significare “scorrere”. Meo ha raccontato del suo rapporto con i profumi, un’ esperienza nata per caso. Ha studiato chimica, ha poi lavorato con i disabili, è divenuto erborista e poi ha iniziato a studiare antropologia e viaggiare. Le sue fragranze sono nate durante i suoi viaggi. Passione, amore e nostalgia sono alcune delle emozioni da loro ritratte. Infatti “Notturno” e “Luce” racchiudono la nostalgia per il suo amore, la sua compagna di vita Federica Castellani che era lontana e il suo ritorno, celebrano l’ amore per lei ed hanno quali protagonisti la calda sensualità del patchouli(una delle mie fragranze preferite unitamente a vetiver e opoponax), note speziate addolcite dalla fava tonka. Esperienze olfattive e momenti alchemici, legati alla poesia ed a magiche suggestioni crowleyane (un’ alltra prova che conferma la parentela spirituale con Fabio Quaranta, il suo amore per le band che si ispirano a Crowley quali Psychic TVCoil e Current 93).

Una felice esperienza, unita ad altri eventi che parlavano di natura, arte e artigianalità. Il mondo delle farfalle è stato ritratto da “Patma”, la performance di Sacha Turchi che ha narrato la nascita delle farfalle e “La memoria degli oggetti” di Pablo Mesa Capella che ha creato contenitori di ricordi e poesia.

La legna ritrovata nelle acque di Pantelleria e il suo lirismo erano i protagonisti dell’ installazione di Giancarlo Scialanga che è stata enfatizzata dal sound design di Pietro Scialanga. Legno e artigianalità hanno brillato nei suggestivi componenti di arredo del simpatico Alessandro Visi.

Fiori, piante, piccoli, grandi animali, delizie come la liquirizia di Amarelli, creazioni che si ispirano alla natura erano le alchimie di Floracult, condite da una atmosfera estremamente amorevole e autentica che aveva qualcosa di magico. La calda accoglienza del luogo e la gentilezza e simpatia delle persone che ho incontrato ha reso tutto ciò meraviglioso rilassante e divertente.

An enchanting installation under the sign of avant-garde and surreal suggestions at the Paris Almine Rech Gallery has recently presented “Never too light”, the new collection by the brilliant jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez. Lightness, irony, craftsmanship, innovative and sophisticated shapes join to the traditional patterns of Delfina’s work. The eyes, featuring in earrings and rings she made, a leitmotiv of her work, are enriched by pearls and gems. A splendor emphasized by her technique which prefers unique and sculptural constructions instead of using the classic bezel to embody the gems and enhance their natural brightness.

Una incantevole installazione all’ insegna di avveniristiche suggestioni surreali alla Almine Rech Gallery di Parigi ha recentemente presentato “Never too light”, la nuova collezione della brillante designer di gioielli Delfina Delettrez. Leggerezza, ironia, artigianalità, forme innovative e sofisticate si uniscono ai motive tradizionali dell’ opera di Delfina. Gli occhi, protagonisti degli orecchini e anelli da lei realizzati, un leitmotiv del suo lavoro, sono arricchiti da perle e pietre preziose. Uno splendore enfatizzato dalla sua tecnica che predilige uniche e scultoree costruzioni e non si avvale del classico castone per racchiudere le gemme nel gioiello e valorizzarne la naturale luminosità.

Nature, its culture, art, design and fashion that celebrate old tradition, craftsmanship and sustainability have been the main features at Floracult, the event created by the pioneer fashion designer – of Carmina Campus, brand of ethical fashion which promotes the culture of re-use – which was held in the Rome countryside at La Storta, I Casali del Pino, staged by Studio Dottor, architects studio of Pietro Dottor.

One of the features has been the Scuola per reinventori (School for re-inventors), in its second edition, curated by Clara Tosi Pamphili and Alessio De Navasques which hosted a factory of hand-embroidery and installation that showcased the sketches by Vincenzo Montini along with the vintage clothes by Elisabeth the first

Suggestions concerning interior design by Costanza Algranti, we spoke and she told me how she found everything in the roof oxidized that became an intrinsic part of the furniture she created. The shades depict the silhouette of a woman and other lyrical suggestions that make these creations something beyond interior design and closer to an artwork.

Le suggestioni inerenti l’ interior design di Costanza Algranti, con cui ho parlato e mi ha detto come abbia trovato tutto nei tetti ossidati che sono diventati una parte intrinseca dei componenti d’ arredo da lei create. Le sfumature ritraggono la silhouette di una donna e altre suggestioni liriche che rendono queste creazioni qualcosa che va al di là dell’ interior design ed è più vicino a un’ opera d’ arte.

I was amazed by the cross pollination from one grass to another, a practice which generates addiction of the insect. Another weird discovery concerned the relationship between a tree and the ants that are hosted and nourished by that tree, its body contains ingredients that create addiction and make the ants more aggressive. In fact the ants fight against every (little or big) creature to protect the tree.

f 2 10

I talked hilariously to Stefano about the vegetal creatures that play a role of mistress and pushers. The sensitivity evidenced in the vegetal world like the mimosa pudica (“pudica” stands as “prudish”), a kind of mimosa which reacts to the touch of a hand.

Rosa Sublime” book launch celebrates the family tradition of Vittorio Barni, the production and creation of new types of roses like the Mariangela Melato rose, a white rose that had been presented to the sister of the iconic Italian actress who passed away recently. Emma Bonino, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Italian Government, the actress Isabella Ferrari and the director Lina Wertmuller all spoke about Mariangela Melato and her sense of freedom which the white rose in her honor evokes.

Mi ha stupito l’ impollinazione da una pianta all’ altra, una pratica che genera la dipendenza dell’ insetto. Un’ altra bizzarra scoperta riguardava la relazione tra un albero e le formiche che sono ospitate e nutrite da quell’ albero, il suo corpo contiene ingredienti che generano dipendenza e rendono le formiche più aggressive. Infatti le formiche combattono contro ogni ( piccola o grande) creatura per proteggere l’ albero.

Ho parlato con ilarità a Stefano delle creature vegetali che interpretano un ruolo di mistress e pushers, della sensibilità dimostrata nel mondo vegetale come dalla mimosa pudica, un tipo di mimosa che reagisce al tocco di una mano.

Stefano incoraggia con modestia la conoscenza e la sua condivisione che considero essere uno dei bei regali provenienti da Floracult.

La presentazione del libro “Rosa Sublime” celebra la tradizione di famiglia di Vittorio Barni, la produzione e creazione di nuovi tipi di rose come la rosa Mariangela Melato, una rosa bianca che è stata presentata alla sorella dell’ iconica attrice italiana che è recentemente venuta a mancare. Emma Bonino, il Ministro degli Esteri del Governo italiano, l’ attrice Isabella Ferrari e la regista Lina Wertmuller hanno tutte parlato di Mariangela Melato ed il suo senso per la libertà che la rosa bianca in suo onore evoca.
