SAN FELICE SUL PANARO THE DAY AFTER

a thousand sensations

a thousand people that I should and would like to mention

a thousand words

a thousand laughs

and a thousand other things after this zealous weekend in san felice sul panaro.

I would definitely forget something and someone, and it would be a pity because everything and everyone where fundamental.

I am going to say only one thing: THANK YOU! a thousand times thank you!!!!

WEEKEND SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICOESPIRALITOSO!

beautiful full weekend!

from Friday to Sunday, as abundantly mentioned, the photographic festival FOTOINCONTRI.

saturday, as abundantly mentioned, SPORTWEEK will be on the shelves in the GAZZETTA DELLO SPORT with double cover, guest stars melissa satta and federica pellegrini. I will write later on about this and will tell you about it in more detail.

for now the two covers:

satta

 

pellegrini

 

 

and the two promo videos I made with our two stars.

I made pellegrini do some sort of magic:

instead with satta I thought of making a movie trailer (then next year we’ll do the movie, for now only the trailer! some sort of homeopathic cinema!), in two versions.

the short:

FOTOINCONTRI A SAN FELICE SUL PANARO-IL PROGRAMMA DEFINITIVO

 

 477174_10201080885724418_1677398396_o

 

we are almost there: next weekend, the 24/25/26 of may in san felice sul panaro, a little town near modena, the FOTOINCONTRI photographic festival will take place.

I remind you again “the dirty dozen” of great photographers that will participate to this event: gianni berengo gardin, settimio benedusi, giovanni cozzi, chico de luigi, franco fontana, maurizio galimberti, giovanni gastel, guido harari, gabriele rigon, ferdinando scianna, toni thorimbert, oliviero toscani.

basically the program is completed, and you can download and print it qui. I am anyways going to make a summary of what to expect, as succinctly as possible:

FRIDAY 24th of may

– at 18:30 in piazza castello the festival will be officially open, with the inauguration of the twelve photographer’s exhibitions. there isn’t a specific location of where these exhibitions will be, because the exhibitions will be… it will be a surprise! in the evening, at 21:30, in piazza castello there will be a screening of oliviero toscani’s images for the citizens of san felice.

SATURDAY 25th of may

–  from 9:00 o’clock in the morning to 19:00 there will be the workshops in different locations. I know that most of the workshops are full, but if you want you can try asking if there is any availability caused by defections: ask giulio, on 333.773.0507. and remember that every workshop carries a 100 euros fee, which will go entirely to san felice.

–  photographer sara lando will host a workshop named “playing with photography” (for free!) for the children of san felice.

–  in the afternoon denis curti, resposible for the most important space dedicated to photography, FORMA, will give a lecture on “collecting and photography”, a topic on which he has recently written a wonderful book: I will write the time and place as soon as possible.

–  at 21:00 in piazza castello davide mengacci will introduce the twelve photographers, who will show their work and speak in a sort of talk show about photography. davide mengacci is not only a great television host, but has always been a big fan of photography: there will also be his exhibition during those days in san felice, in via marconi number 17.

–  before/during/after the evening meeting there will be three prints on sale each signed by the author at 100 euros each. obviously this also will go towards san felice.

SUNDAY 26th of may

–  there will be the wonderful presence of martina colombari, which will let herself be photographed by the twelve photographers for the making of the 2014 calendar of san felice. Whose revenues, of course, will go entirely in san felice.

–  in the afternoon, in the streets of the town, the famous MAGICO will take place, directed by mario lasalandra.

–  I would say that is all: we are waiting for you in numbers!!!

OTTAVIO MISSONI

today (at the age of 92!) ottavio missoni passed away.

I have had the pleasure and the honour of photographing him for vogue germany a few years ago, at his house, with his wife rosita.

in a world of assholes full of themselves, ottavio, for the little time I was able to get to know him on that beautiful day, he was extremely kind, friendly and present.

for this very reason I enjoyed taking this picture while he cheers the photographer/spectator, as to invite him to his table, like a friend.

in the fashion world I feel like there are two very distinct worlds which are far apart from each other: the one about fashion and the one about style.

there are fashion photographers and style photographers.

there are designers who design fashion and designers who design style.

there are many people who follow trends and other people who have style.

I cannot stand fashion but at the same time I love style.

I found that ottavio missoni was a person with great style! RIP
