Artisanal Intelligence (A.I.)”Body for the dress”, a nice showcase under the sign of art, fashion and craftsmanship, curated by Clara Tosi Pamphili and Alessio De’ Navasques  which was held during the Altaroma latest edition at the suggestive buildings of La Dogana – a huge industrial building – which yesterday hosted an ancient railway station, placed in the Rome area of San Lorenzo, the one which has resisted against the German attacks during the Second World War of whose tracks are still impressed in many buildings –  featured the works by visual artists as the bright Sacha Turchi, who made a sculpture evoking the spinal column, the structure of human body. Constructions, clear signs embodying visions as the ones by Giacomo Frasson and Giulia Roman, graduated students from the Fashion Design Faculty of Iuav University of Venice, as well as by Melampo, brand created by Lulù and Anna Poletti, Brighenti – renowned Rome boutique, which made the lingerie for actresses and showgirls – and others who have drawn an artistic path, successfully putting the light on the energies and ideas, featuring in the contemporary times where the new reads again the old to find a way to go, though the destination is still unknown.

Artisanal Intelligence (A.I.)”Body for the dress”, una simpatica rassegna sotto il segno di arte, moda e artigianalità, curata da Clara Tosi Pamphili e Alessio De’ Navasques che si è tenuta in occasione dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma presso i suggestivi edifici de La Dogana – un enorme costruzione industriale  che ieri ha ospitato un’ antica stazione ferroviaria, ubicata nel quartiere romano di San Lorenzo, quello che ha resistito agli attacchi tedeschi durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale, le cui tracce sono tuttora impresse in numerosi palazzi – ed ha avuto quali protagonisti i lavori di artisti come la brillante Sacha Turchi, la quale ha realizzato una scultura che evoca la colonna vertebrale, la struttura del corpo umano. Costruzioni, segni precisi che racchiudono in sé visioni quali quelle di Giacomo Frasson e Giulia Roman, studenti neo-laureati della Facoltà di Fashion Design dell’ Università Iuav di Venezia, come anche Melampo, brand creato da LulùAnna Poletti, Brighenti -rinomata boutique romana di lingerie di lusso, che ha realizzato biancheria intima per attrici e showgirl – ed altri che hanno tracciato un percorso artistico, gettando felicemente luce sulle energie e idee protagoniste della contemporaneità in cui il nuovo rilegge il vecchio per trovare una strada da intraprendere, pur essendo la destinazione ancora ignota.

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).

Flowers, plants, little, big animals, delights as the licorice by Amarelli, creations inspired by nature where the alchemies by Floracult, dressed up by such a loving and genuine atmosphere which had a kind of magic. The warm welcome of place, kindness and congeniality of people I saw made all that marvelous, relaxing and fun.

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.

It comes back Floracult, event celebrating the nature and its culture, ideated by Ilaria Venturini Fendi and curated by Antonella Fornai which will be held from 25th to 27th April 2014 at the Casali del Pino, at La Storta in the Rome countryside where it will feature many initiatives under the sign of art, culture and sustainability. Plants, flowers and butterflies, these will be the themes of some talks as the one which will be held on 25th April at 11:00 am, starring the nose or rather the researcher of olfactive memory Meo Fusciuni who, accompanied by the author and journalist Ida Tonini, will talk about plants and scents. It will follow at 12:30 am the book launch of “A rose is a rose” by photographer and journalist Luca Bracali revealing the intimate beauty of a flower and telling about the experience of a family owning a nursery which since four generations joins search and experimentation. The entomologist Gianumberto Accinelli at 5:00 pm will tell about the “butterfly effect” or the creation of “ecological hallways” by using nettles, fennels and carrots, to bring the butterflies from the countryside and there will be along with him the photographer Stefano Nicolini who will present an exhibition project focused on the Monarch butterfly which is really endangered. Moreover Sunday 27th April at 11:00 am the expert Vanda Del Valli will reveal the different uses of succulent plants. Floracult will also host many permanent events as “Legni alla deriva”, exhibition of works by the artist Giancarlo Scialanga, woods of whose journey is told by music made by the sound designer Pietro Scialanga. It will be also on show “Padma” by Sacha Turchi combining the linen, cotton and canvas cloths, colored with dyes made of medical plants, to iron structures. Another project having a highly dreamy-like impact is “La memoria degli oggetti” by Mesa Capella. A fairy-tale story, evoked by objects, old cut photographs becoming surreal scenes that talk about past lives, the lives of others, caught for a moment, saved and protected under a bell jar. Art and craftsmanship on show, the one by Alessandro Visi, “menusier” or maker of furniture made of notched and sculpted wood and also to learn, purpose of the School for Re-inventors by Clara Tosi Pamphili and Alessio de Navasques which will host the workshop featuring Meo Fusciuni along with his plants and scents where it will be able to learn making and taking care of oneself by using natural elements. A not to be missed happening for all the ones who love or want to rediscover the nature and its culture.

Piante, fiori e farfalle questi i temi di alcuni i talk quali quello che avrà luogo il 25 aprile alle ore 11:00, di cui sarà protagonista il naso o meglio ricercatore della memoria olfattiva Meo Fusciuni che, accompagnato dalla scrittrice e giornalista Ida Tonini, parlerà di piante e profumi. Seguirà alle ore 12:30 la presentazione del libro “A rose is a rose”del fotografo e giornalista Luca Bracali che svela l’ intima bellezza di un fiore e racconta l’ esperienza di una famiglia di vivaisti che da quattro generazioni unisce ricerca e sperimentazione. Alle ore 17:00 l’ entomologo Gianumberto Accinelli parlerà de “L’ effetto farfalla” ovvero la creazione di “corridoi ecologici” mediante ortiche, finocchi e carote, per portare le farfalle dalla campagna alla città e insieme a lui il fotografo Stefano Nicolini presenterà un progetto espositivo incentrato sulla farfalla Monarca che è in grave pericolo di estinzione.

In mostra anche “Padma” di Sacha Turchi che abbina i tessuti di lino, cotone e canapa, colorati con tinture a base di erbe mediche, a strutture in ferro. Un altro progetto dalla forte valenza onirica è “La memoria degli oggetti” di Mesa Capella. Un racconto fiabesco evocato da oggetti, foto d’epoca ritagliate che diventano scenari surreali e parlano di vite trascorse, le vite degli altri, catturate per un attimo, conservate e protette, sotto una campana di vetro. Arte e anche artigianalità in mostra, quella di Alessandro Visi, “menusier” ovvero fabbricante di mobili in legno intagliati e scolpiti e anche da apprendere, finalità della Scuola per Reinventori di Clara Tosi Pamphili e Alessio de Navasques che ospiterà il workshop di cui sarà protagonista Meo Fusciuni con le sue piante e le sue fragranze durante il quale si potrà imparare a fare e anche curarsi con elementi naturali. Un evento imperdibile per tutti coloro che amano o vogliono riscoprire la natura e la sua cultura.
