Prevert


The street in front of the hairdresser Aldo Coppola (a salon designed by Philippe Starck) has a poem of Jacques Prévert. Some romanticism in a street where the happy hour rules - most people there probably do not know who is Prévert.

the Biscione again


Since my first picture of the Biscione (one of the symbols of the city of milan) I see them everwhere. This very old one is on the facade of the church of S. Maria Incoronata in Corso Garibaldi.

Love Design


Today in the gallery of contemporary art of Milan opened Love Design. For three days famous design companies sell their products with a discount of at least 50%. All benefits are devolved to AIRC, the Italian organisation for Cancer Research.
Let's help them. I bought a lamp.
The logo of Love design is a heart. This picture reminds me to it.

Constructions


Milan is preparing EXPO 2015.
Besides the buildings that will be made to house the exhibition, other infrastructure is already being build. The new tower of the building of the Region Lombardy, a project by Architect Pei, the one of the Pyramide of the Louvre in Paris, is already higher than its neighbour Pirelli. Until now this was the highest skyscraper in Milan.
In future post I will show you other construction works ongoing.
