30 images of dead Italian people. These aren’t anonymous people, we, at Mimi Berlin, made them that way. We only photographed their faces, no names, flowers, candles or any other personal items that show who they were and how they are still loved, by living Italian people from Portofino.
The identity of a village.
If you would like to know more about these men and women we suggest you visit the fisherman’s village of Portofino, with only around 500 inhabitants, to see the identity of this village for yourself at the tiny white cemetery at the Church of San Giorgio.
Giro Giro Tondo Exhibition at the Triennale Museum
We, at Mimi Berlin, came to know about the Giro Giro Tondo “design for children” exhibition, at the Triennale museum, which was part of the Milan Design Week during Salone del Mobile 2017, via the local newspaper Het Parool. We didn’t attend the Design Week this year because we missed our flight. This week we will be posting about venues, designs and other places we feel we really missed out on.“The opening is an Ouverture, devoted to play design with a powerful figurative component and a pop spirit.” For us this image is love at first site! (image from the local newspaper.) This we must see in real life! Must!
“A new history of Italian design, devoted to the world of children and to the design and architecture that has been created for them. It includes the games and images that have amused and informed them, the spaces within which they took their first steps, and the objects they used to discover the world.” triennale.org
Fortunately for us this exhibition runs through February 2018. (Concept and Direction:
Silvana Annicchiarico. Exhibition Design and Art Direction: Stefano Giovannoni with Tian Jin. Graphic Design: Giorgio Camuffo with CamuffoLab.
I have got a wonderful new exhibition for you as this month’s must-see.
Go to London because the Victoria and Albert Museum has got another exhilarating show for you.
Celebrating almost 70 years of italian fashion, the exhibition ‘The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014’ is a total MUST-SEE for any fashion darling like myself.
The exhibition will draw out the defining factors unique to the Italian fashion industry. My advise to you: indulge yourselves in London in the glamour that is italian fashion.
And remember: Italians do it better.
