Jungle style 

THE GREEN MOOD

We have all noticed that the theme of climate change is an increasingly serious, delicate, and argumentative topic, and the world is partly changing his way of acting.

Sometimes transforming it into a cool mood to follow.

What do I mean?

I’ll explain it right away. Have you heard about biodegradable or eco-sustainable furnishings? Until a few years ago nobody was interested to this important detail . The homes were furnished according to personal taste but without paying attention to the type of material and without worrying about if it was dangerous to the planet or not.

I want to start exactly from here. Have you ever heard about the urban jungle? Read More

Romantic dinner for two in the charming woodland of Parma.

In occasion of the 29th birthday of my boyfriend, I decided to organize something really unique. After doing a lot of research and talking to a friend of mine, who knew about this place, I found a farm near Parma that offered the opportunity to experience an unusual “dinner in the woods”.  Out of curiosity, I immediately reached out to the owner of the farm where they organize this dinner to understand the details, and after a few minutes on the phone with him I decided to make the reservation. This is a incredibly unique experience. Only two people can attend and it takes place in the evening; this is the reason why I had to book two months in advance. The two months before the set date, I was in touch with Diadorim, the owner, to go over program of the night. Together we chose the menu, the wine and most importantly, he walked me through the plan to get to the “secret place” to make sure Luca, my boyfriend did not suspect anything. Read More

GOFLY TOURS

Discovering the Miami skyline

A tour of one of the most beautiful skyline in the United States. An incredible experience, 75 minutes of pure emotion while sipping bubbles. First take a ride over the city and then get on the coast where the beaches and crystal clear waters are the leading character. Throughout the tour, the pilot will also play the tour guide role by telling you stories about the places less touristic but that will sparkle so my much curiosity in you. It is interesting to come to the realization that looking at things from an outside perspective everything appears a lot clearer and easier to interpret!  Read More

Imagine the imaginary absurdology of Michael Cheval

This work is dedicated to John Lennon, the main character of the painting who sits oh the mosaic floor of ” Strawberry Fields” in Central Park, New York. The woman figure is not Yoko Ono, but a symbol of music, incredible and full of surprise, like the silent violin she plays. Strawberries are all around Lennon’s figure, even his hat, which is a juicer with a clock mechanism. Perhaps, for Lennon, the Strawberry image was a symbol of love and,  probably juice from these berries fed his creativity as the God’s nectar.

Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya Palace

 

Vizcaya, the winter residence of James Deering (1859–1925), was built between 1914 and 1922 in the Coconut Grove area of Miami, Florida. The estate was entirely surrounded by subtropical forest—the Main House and the formal gardens appeared as a dreamlike vision in the midst of the jungle on the shores of Biscayne Bay. Today, Vizcaya is an oasis of silence and green, miraculously preserved just south of Miami’s modern skyline. Read More

WYNWOOD WALLS

 

Until a few years ago, what is known today as the Wynwood Art District was an area mainly inhabited by Puerto Ricans, and so it has been called Little San Juan or El Barrio. It was once an industrial area full of warehouses (especially textiles and shoes), and not well regarded.

In the mid-2000s, a group known as Primary Flight decided to create an “open air museum” in this area, inviting street artists from all over the world to decorate the walls of the warehouses with their works. That same year, Tony Goldman, a real estate developer with a large area in the district and a passion for art, decided to establish the art space now known as the Wynwood Walls: he provided a complex of buildings with high walls and no windows, opened the Wynwood Kitchen & Bar, and continued by opening a new space for less monumental graffiti, the Wynwood Doors.
