Experimentation, reinterpretations and innovations, an atmosphere smelling of creativity, those are the main features of Talents 2016, fashion contest of the Rome Costume and Fashion Academy – which was held at the marvelous building of Rome Ex Dogana, place under the sign of industrial, metropolitan suggestions and contemporary times where took place the events curated by Altaroma – which featured the final works by the graduated students of the renowned fashion school headed by Lupo Lanzara and Adrien Yakimov Roberts as director of education, showed behind a jury of experts as Silvia Venturini Fendi (President of Altaroma), Carlo Capasa (President of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion), Laura Lusuardi (Max Mara Creative Director), Leonardo Pucci (Christian Dior) and many others. Ilaria Fiore won this edition, who has also awarded with a special prize for the accessories she made. The bright creative made a capsule collection joining sartorialism and experimentation, combines the cloth with leather, where the accessories or rather bags and belts become a fundamental part of dress (though they are removable). Lightness, minimalism, rebellion against family, father and dialectics of power is what the collection by Deniza Nugnes talks about, who – as she told me days ago, during the fitting of the fashion show which was held at the Costume & Fashion Academy – has inspired by the cultural revolution from 1968 and subverted the male wardrobe, its constructions giving rise to minimal essential garments and successful asymmetries. Many are the ideas on the move drawing new shapes and lines as the sphere becoming the fundamental idea of the collection by Andrea Maria di Salvo where white is the main features, which embodies many theatrical references.

ALTAROMA: I TALENTS 2016 DELL’ ACCADEMIA DI COSTUME & MODA DI ROMA

Sperimentazione, reinterpretazioni e innovazioni, un’ atmosfera che profuma di creatività, questi i principali protagonisti di Talents 2016, il fashion contest dell’ Accademia Costume e Moda di Roma -che si è tenuto nei  meravigliosi spazi dell’ Ex Dogana di Roma, luogo all’ insegna di suggestioni industrial, metropolitane e contemporaneità  in cui hanno avuto luogo gli eventi curati da Altaroma – di cui sono stati protagonisti i final works degli studenti neo-diplomati nella rinomata scuola di moda diretta da Lupo Lanzara e da Adrien Yakimov Roberts nelle vesti di direttore didattico, che sono stati presentati dinanzi a una giuria di esperti quali Silvia Venturini Fendi (Presidente di Altaroma), Carlo Capasa (Presidente della Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana), Laura Lusuardi (Direttore Creativo di Max Mara), Leonardo Pucci (Christian Dior) e molti altri. Vincitrice di questa edizione è Ilaria Fiore, la quale è stata insignita anche di un premio speciale per gli accessori da lei realizzati. La brillante creativa ha creato una collezione capsule che unisce sartorialità e sperimentazione, abbina il tessuto alla pelle, in cui gli accessori ovvero borse e cinture diventano parte integrante dell’ abito (pur essendo rimovibili). Leggerezza, minimalismo e ribellione contro la famiglia e la dialettica del potere è ciò di cui parla la collezione di Deniza Nugnes, la quale -. come mi ha detto giorni fa, durante il fitting della sfilata che si è tenuto all’ Accademia di Costume e Moda – si è ispirata alla rivoluzione culturale del 1968 ed ha sovvertito il guardaroba maschile, le sue costruzioni dando vita a capi minimali e felici asimmetrie. Plurime le idee in movimento che disegnano nuove forme e linee quali la sfera che diventa il concetto fondante della collezione di Andrea Maria di Salvo in cui il bianco è il principale protagonista, la quale racchiude in sé plurimi riferimenti teatrali.

The atmospheres by Raja Schwahn-Reichmann

The atmospheres by Raja Schwahn-Reichmann

Baroque suggestions, a magic world featuring angels, fauns, satyrs and nymphs, devils and courtesans. All that is embodied in the work and life of Raja Schwahn-Reichmann, bright restorer, painter, sculptor and collector of antique costumes. The Viennese artist, awarded in 2009 for her work and her picturesque life with the Italian art Mantegna Prize, has successfully made concrete the Nietzschean imperative, making her life an artwork. Visiting the Milanese house of my dear friend Stephan Hamel, I recently ran into the marvelous decorative works she made and I had the chance to see and appreciate the transformations of di Raja, caught on photo. Elegance, irony, provocation, art and a detailed reconstruction and reinterpretation of atmospheres and ages is what shines in the work by this artist of whose name since many years is strictly connected to the Life Ball – charity event which is held in Vienna at the Rathausplatz, joins art, fashion and supports the fight against HIV – where Raja curates its set design. The works she made for 2014 Life Ball edition of whose theme is “the garden of delights giardino” will be seen tonight also via streaming by the Austrian TV channel OrftvThek which will broadcast the event featuring Conchita Wurst, Ricky Martin and for the first time a menswear fashion show, curated by L’ Uomo Vogue which will include celebrated names of fashion scene as Givenchy, Viktor & Rolf, Lanvin, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Etro and Dsquared2. A not to be missed happening to enjoy art and fashion and the genius of Raja Schwahn-Reichmann.

L’ ARTE, ELEGANZA & IRONIA DI RAJA SCHWAHN-REICHMANN

The atmospheres by Raja Schwahn-Reichmann

The atmospheres by Raja Schwahn-Reichmann

Suggestioni barocche, un magico mondo di angeli, fauni, satiri e ninfe, diavoli e cortigiane. Tutto ciò è racchiuso nell’ opera e nella vita di Raja Schwahn-Reichmann, brillante restauratrice, pittrice, illustratrice, scultrice e collezionista di costumi d’ epoca. L’ artista viennese, insignita nel 2009 per il suo lavoro e la sua pittoresca vita del Premio di arte italiana Mantegna, ha felicemente concretizzato l’ imperativo nietzschiano, rendendo la sua vita un’ opera d’ arte. Visitando la dimora milanese del mio caro amico Stephan Hamel, recentemente mi sono imbattuta nelle sue meravigliose opere decorative e ho anche avuto modo di osservare e ammirare le trasformazioni di Raja, immortalate su fotografia. Eleganza, ironia, provocazione, arte e una minuziosa ricostruzione e reinterpretazione di atmosfere ed epoche è ciò che splende nell’ opera di questa artista il cui nome è da anni strettamente legato al Life Ball – evento di beneficienza che si tiene a Vienna presso la Rathausplatz, unisce arte, moda e supporta la lotta contro l’ HIV – di cui Raja cura le scenografie. I suoi lavori per l’ edizione 2014 del Life Ball, il cui tema è “il giardino dei piaceri”, saranno visibili stasera anche via streaming per il tramite della rete televisiva austriaca OrftvThek  che trasmetterà l’ evento di cui saranno protagonisti Conchita Wurst, Ricky Martin e per la prima volta una sfilata di abbigliamento uomo, curata da L’ Uomo Vogue che includerà celebri nomi della moda quali Givenchy, Viktor & Rolf, Lanvin, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Etro e Dsquared2. Un evento imperdibile per apprezzare arte e moda e il genio di Raja Schwahn-Reichmann.

It will be held on 29th April 2014 in Treviso, in Via Achille Papa 1, at the Fashion Design Faculty of Iuav University of Venice, at 2:30 pm the talk “Il collezionista di abiti”, being part of series of conferences organized by Maria Luisa Frisa and Gabriele Monti “Mostrare la moda oggi: il gesto del curatore” (during the exhibition “Revisioni: Esercizi a partire da una study collection”, curated by Gabriele Monti which is held in Venice at the Spazio Punch), a talk featuring the clothing collector and dear friend Enrico Quinto. Enrico is the co-owner of collection Enrico QuintoPaolo Tinarelli, including 130 clothes that star in an exhibition on the Italian Glamour, recently opened in Rio De Janeiro, I tell you about during the forthcoming days (ten items being part of collection are also showcased in “The Glamour of Italian Fashion”, exhibition which is held in London at the Victoria & Albert Museum and runs through 27th July). I like reminding a nice circumstance I shared with him, talking about possession and fashion culture and involving a Bagonghi bag, my favorite bag by Roberta di Camerino, we found during a pleasant Summer afternoon in Rome. Walking on the street, in the area of Piazza Navona, in Via del Governo Vecchio we found the Bagonghi bag, which was close to the rubbish container. It was and is my favorite bag, I was happy to find it with my friend, put on the ground as garbage. Not being part of me – spiritually and materially – the possession, believing in random synchronicity – as nothing happens for random -, I immediately gave it to my friend. Knowing it was my favorite bag he wanted I held it. Instead of me who I am just someone who liked this bag, I considered Enrico as a kind of fashion culture’s guardian and therefore he had to have it. Thus it has been. Fashion culture is such an essential value, a value arising from the creativity connected to the matter, an object, a garment and goes beyond the ethic of possession (after all I always have chosen between to have or to be of being). And concerning that or rather fashion culture, I am sure the words by Enrico (bright individual successfully joining intelligence and irony), his tales will be really precious to think about the work of a collector. A not to be missed happening which is just an announced success, as it often happens at the Iuav University.

“IL COLLEZIONISTA DI ABITI”, A TALK FEATURING ENRICO QUINTO AT THE IUAV UNIVERSITY

Si terrà il 29 aprile 2014 a Treviso, in Via Achille Papa 1, presso la Facoltà di Design della Moda dell’ Università Iuav di Venezia, alle ore 14:30 il talk “Il collezionista di abiti” che è parte della serie di conferenze organizzate da Maria Luisa Frisa e Gabriele MontiMostrare la moda oggi: il gesto del curatore” (in occasione della mostra “Revisioni: Esercizi a partire da una study collection”, curata da Gabriele Monti che si tiene a Venezia presso lo Spazio Punch), un talk di cui è protagonista il collezionista di abiti e caro amico Enrico Quinto. Enrico è comproprietario della collezione Enrico QuintoPaolo Tinarelli, la quale include 130 abiti che sono protagonisti di una mostra, recentemente inaugurata a Rio De Janeiro sull’ Italian Glamour, in merito alla quale parlerò nei prossimi giorni (dieci pezzi che sono parte della collezione sono anche esposti in “The Glamour of Italian Fashion”, mostra che si tiene a Londra presso il Victoria & Albert Museum e prosegue fino al 27 luglio). Mi piace ricordare una simpatica circostanza condivisa con lui che parla di possesso, cultura della moda e coinvolge una Bagonghi, la mia borsa preferita di Roberta di Camerino, da noi trovata durante un piacevole pomeriggio estivo a Roma. Passeggiando per strada, nei dintorni di Piazza Navona, a Via del Governo Vecchio, abbiamo trovato una Bagonghi che stava a terra vicino al contenitore dell’ immondizia. Non facendo – spiritualmente e materialmente – parte di me il possesso, credendo nel sincronismo del caso – poiché niente accade casualmente -, l’ ho immediatamente donata al mio amico. Sapendo che era la mia borsa preferita voleva che la tenessi. Diversamente da me che sono soltanto qualcuno a cui piaceva questa borsa, considero Enrico una sorta di guardiano della cultura della moda e pertanto la doveva avere. Così è stato. La cultura della moda è un valore imprescindibile, valore che nasce dalla creatività legata alla materia, a un oggetto, un indumento e va al di là dell’ etica del possesso (dopotutto tra avere ed essere ho sempre scelto di essere). E in merito a ciò ovvero alla cultura della moda, son certa che le parole di Enrico(brillante individualità che unisce felicemente intelligenza e ironia), i suoi racconti saranno oltremodo preziosi per riflettere sull’ opera di un collezionista. Un evento imperdibile che è già un successo annunciato, come sovente accade alla Iuav.

Fashion and Epicureanism to celebrate the first international conference of Misa and the genius of Giuliana Cohen Camerino aka Roberta di Camerino have been the alchemies that featured in “Roberta: A dinner my way”, event ideated by Iuav University of Venice, Fiera di Vicenza and Origin which was held in Venice at the atelier of Roberta di Camerino, in the suggestive Palazzo Loredan Grifalconi. An enchanting setting curated by Maria Luisa Frisa and Arabeschi di Latte (the collective of designers having a passion for conviviality founded by Francesca Sarti, which curated also the menu of dinner, including the favorite dishes of Giuliana Cohen Camerino as the risotto with radicchio, roast beef, roasted potatoes, the Raspberries bavarois and other tasty delicacies) talked about the legendary fashion designer, scarves, dresses embodying the famous patterns of her creativity along with the bags, little masterpieces of craftsmanship as the Bagonghi bag. This bag which is my favorite bag – of whose name given by the creative celebrates a memory from her childhood, the dwarf who made her smile very much at the circus – immediately made me smile and think about a recent Summer memory, an afternoon in Rome, pleasant interlude which featured me and my dear friend, the fashion collector Enrico Quinto. Walking on the street, in the area of Piazza Navona, in Via del Governo Vecchio we found a Bagonghi bag, which was close to the rubbish container. It was and is my favorite bag, I was happy to find it with my friend, put on the ground as garbage.

Fashion culture is such an essential value, a value arising from the creativity connected to the matter, an object, a garment and goes beyond the ethic of possession (after all I always have chosen between to have or to be of being). I told that to some friends as Gabriele Monti, special individual, a genuine hard-worker, who is professor at Iuav University of Venice, who shared with me this marvelous happening, which made me doubly happy to be there.

Moda ed epicureismo per celebrare il primo convegno internazionale di Misa e il genio di Giuliana Cohen Camerino aka Roberta di Camerino sono state le alchimie protagoniste di “Roberta: A dinner my way”, evento ideato dalla Università Iuav di Venice, Fiera di Vicenza e Origin che si è tenuto a Venezia presso l’ atelier di Roberta di Camerino, nel suggestivo Palazzo Loredan Grifalconi. Un incantevole allestimento curato da Maria Luisa Frisa e Arabeschi di Latte (il collettivo di designers con una passione per la convivialità, fondato da Francesca Sarti che ha anche curato il menù della cena, comprensivo delle pietanze preferite di Giuliana Cohen Camerino come il risotto al radicchio, il roast beef, le patate arrosto, la bavarese di lamponi e altre appetitose delicatezze) che parlava della leggendaria fashion designers. Foulard, abiti che racchiudono i famosi motivi della sua creatività insieme alle borse, piccoli capolavori di artigianalità quali la Bagonghi. Questa borsa, la mia borsa preferita – il cui nome dato dalla creativa celebra un ricordo della sua infanzia, il nano Bagonghi che tanto la faceva ridere al circo – mi ha fatto immediatamente sorridere e pensare a un recente ricordo estivo, un pomeriggio a Roma, piacevole intermezzo di cui io e il mio caro amico, il collezionista di moda Enrico Quinto siamo stati protagonisti. Passeggiando per strada, nei dintorni di Piazza Navona, a Via del Governo Vecchio, abbiamo trovato una Bagonghi che stava a terra vicino al contenitore dell’ immondizia.

Ho raccontato ciò ad alcuni amici quali Gabriele Monti, speciale individualità, un autentico hard-worker che è docente all’ Università Iuav di Venezia e fashion curator, il quale ha condiviso con me questo meraviglioso happening che mi ha reso doppiamente felice di esserci.

It has recently opened in Rome at the Jewish Museum the exhibition “Survivor, Primo Levi in the portraits by Larry Rivers”, running through 15th October 2013, made in collaboration with the Marella and Gianni Agnelli Art Gallery, directed by Ginevra Elkann and the Rome Jewish Museum, directed by Alessandra di Castro, featuring the portraits of the celebrated Jewish author Primo Levi – survivor to the Auschwitz concentration camp – by Larry Rivers, commissioned by Gianni Agnelli  to celebrate the Turin author and remind a tragedy.

The exhibition also includes the pictures of Primo Levi, the book he wrote “If this is a man”, a touching page -played in a monologue by John Turturro as Primo Levi in the film “The truce” by Franco Rosi – and other objects evoking a dark time which has not to be forget in order to stop violence and discrimination.

That a sensitive issue considering the rise of controversial neo-nazi and neo-fascist movements as the Golden Dawn in Greece and Forza Nuova in Italy. The history teaches us, violence in dark times arises from the socio-economic precariousness, ignorance along with a fragile political frame. Therefore it is doubly important to increase consciousness, knowledge and culture – as this event successfully proved –  in order to oppose to violence.

L’ INAUGURAZIONE DI “SURVIVOR, PRIMO LEVI NEI RITRATTI DI LARRY RIVERS

É stata recentemente inaugurata a Roma presso il Museo Ebraico la mostra “Survivor, Primo Levi nei ritratti di Larry Rivers che prosegue fino al 15 ottobre 2013, realizzata in collaborazione con la Pinacoteca Marella e Gianni Agnelli, diretta da Ginevra Elkann e il Museo Ebraico di Roma, diretto da Alessandra di Castro, di cui sono protagonisti i ritratti del celebre scrittore di origini ebree Primo Levi – sopravvissuto al campo di concentramento di Auschwitz – di Larry Rivers, commissionato da Gianni Agnelli per celebrare lo scrittore torinese e ricordare una tragedia.

La mostra include anche le fotografie di Primo Levi, il suo libro “Se questo è un uomo”, una commovente pagina – recitata in un monologo da John Turturro nei panni di Primo Levi nel film “La tregua” di Franco Rosi – e altri oggetti che evocano un’ epoca buia che non deve essere dimenticata al fine di fermare la violenza e discriminazione.

Questa è una questione sensibile, considerando la nascita di discutibili movimenti neo-nazisti e neo-fascisti quali l’ Alba Dorata in Grecia e Forza Nuova in Italia. La storia ci insegna la violenza nasce in tempi oscuri dalla precarietà socio-economica, l’ ignoranza unitamente a una fragile cornice politica. Sfortunatamente tutto ciò ancora oggi esiste. Pertanto è doppiamente importante accrescere la conoscenza e consapevolezza – come ha felicemente dimostrato questo evento – al fine di opporsi alla violenza.

The enchanting work evoking vapour by Prem Sahib

The enchanting work evoking vapour by Prem Sahib, photo by Giorgio Miserendino

It has recently opened in Rome at the Lorcan O’ Neill Gallery two smashing exhibitions, “Back chat” and “River crossing” featuring the works by Prem Sahib and Jebila Wolfe-Okongwu that embody different suggestions. Intimacy, desire and its ambivalence is the core of work by the Anglo-Indian artist Prem Sahib as it evidences the enchanting art-work evoking the vapor and the gesture of two individuals’ hands removing the water drops on a surface. More fun and colored it’s the work under the sign of pop suggestions by Anglo-Nigerian artist Jebila Wolfe-Okongwu, who used discarded cartons to ship banana around the world for creating objects that evoke the river crossing, theme featuring in a performance which will be held on the forthcoming month. A successful chance to enjoy two vibrant artists.

Sono state recentemente inaugurate a Roma presso la Galleria Lorcan O’ Neill due formidabili mostre, “Back chat” e “River crossing” di cui sono protagoniste le opere di Prem Sahib e Jebila Wolfe-Okongwu che racchiudono diverse suggestioni. Intimità, desiderio e la sua ambivalenza è il nucleo della poetica dell’ artista anglo-indiano Prem Sahib come si evince dall’ incantevole opera che evoca il vapore acqueo e il gesto delle mani di due individui che rimuovono le gocce d’ acqua da una superficie. Più divertente e colorato all’ insegna di suggestioni pop è l’ opera dell’ artista anglo-nigeriano Jebila Wolfe-Okongwu che si è avvalso di cartoni usati per spedire le banana nel mondo per creare oggetti che evocano la traversata di un fiume, tema protagonista di una performance che si terrà il mese prossimo. Una felice occasione per apprezzare due vibranti artisti.
