"ago, filo e nodo" (needle, thread and knot) is a sculpture by the Swedish (American) pop-art artist Claes Oldenburg, which many people don't like, but I do, because it represents the symbol of fashion in the city of fashion. Yellow-green-red are Lithuanian colours :) but they're also the 3 colours of the main underground metro lines (there is also blue, "passante ferroviario", line 4 and 5 will be under construction) and in fact the thread goes down the ground to represent Milan metro. This sculpture is placed in Cadorna square, that is an important metro station, where red and green lines meet. It is also a train station, not the main one that is Stazione Centrale, but in Stazione Cadorna the train from Malpensa airport (the main airport) arrives here, so this scuplture is what tourists first see when they arrive in Milano.

sheriff stars as Oasis

Paolo has always eyes closed :)

great gig, we were on the front row. Cowboy western spaghetti scenery, so nice.. very Italian as Paolo. Sometimes it seemed to be in a Sergio Leone movie (see Morricone concert). There was a band with trumpets and all. I uploaded some videos but we were too close to the Marshalls :) loudspeakers. The girls now have gone to Paolo hotel, I'm not interested ^_^

Beatles cowboy boots. Sometimes the trumpets made a western spaghetti style music

Last request +ciao ciao Paolo :), buonanotte Milano http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqdfnvDQOWY

we were closer than it seems. Unfortunately I can upload only acoustic songs, because we were too close to the loudspeakers. I've put a couple on one of my YouTube channels

there were so many people they had to change venue

Stereophonics @ Alcatraz
I was thinking: Oasis are over, Led Zeppelin are over, the Beatles I think they're over ^_^, so what's my 4th fav band? The Phonics!
They're Oasis friends as well, and performed gigs with them.
16th November: Stereophonics new album "Keep calm and carry on"
At their last gig in Milan (2005) I met them, they were on the tourbus outside the venue and I met also funny people, a girl from Rimini, an English boy, I gave him a free ticket and he was so happy and surprised because of me speaking English so good ^_^ (sorry for mistakes :), I said it's thanks to your songs :), he said he wanted to learn Italian so well. It's a pity we lost ourselves after the gig, hope to find them again.

This is a song of the '80s (also poem), titled "Le ragazze dell'Est" (The girls of East), very emotional and meaningful, which I tried to translate down.
dedicated to all the girls from East Europe, the most beautiful in the world.

some ways to learn the language of love :)

Le ragazze dell'Est

Nei mattini pallidi ancora imburrati di foschia
risatine come monete soffiate nei caffè
facce ingenue appena truccate di tenera euforia
occhi chiari laghi gemelli occhi dolci amari...Io le ho viste
fra cemento e cupole d'oro che il vento spazza via
sotto pensiline che aspettano il sole e il loro tram
coprirsi bene il cuore in mezzo a sandali e vecchie camicie fantasia
e a qualcuno solo e ubriaco che vomita sul mondo...
Io le ho viste portare fiori e poi fuggire via
e provare a dire qualcosa in un italiano strano
io le ho viste coi capelli di sabbia raccolti nei foulard
e un dolore nuovo e lontano tenuto per la mano...
Io le ho viste che cantavano nei giorni brevi di un'idea
e gomiti e amicizie intrecciati per una strada
io le ho viste stringere le lacrime di una primavera che non venne mai
volo di cicogne con ali di cera...
Ancora io le ho viste far la fila con impazienza davanti ai gelatai
quando il cielo stufo d'inverno promette un po' di blu
piccole Regine fra statue di eroi e di operai
lievi spine d'ansia nei petti rotondi e bianchi...
Io le ho viste
eccitate buffe e sudate per la felicità
negli alberghi dove si balla gridare l'allegria
e bere birra e chiudere di fuori la solita neve e la realtà
e ballare alcune tra loro e ballare e poi ballare...
Le ho viste
nelle sere quando son chiuse le fabbriche e le vie
sulle labbra vaghi sorrisi di attesa e chissà che
scrivere sui vetri ghiacciati le loro fantasie
povere belle donne innamorate d'amore e della vita...le ragazze dell'Est.


In pale mornings still buttered of mist
little laughing as coins blowns in cafes
naive faces a bit maked up of tender euphoria
light eyes twin lakes bitter sweet eyes...I've seen them
between cement and golden domes that wind wipes away
under bus shelters waiting for the sun and their tram
well covering their heart between sandals and old fantasy shirts
and some man alone and drunk vomiting over the world...
I've seen them bringing flowers and then flee away
and trying to say something in a funny Italian
I've seen them with sand hair gathered in foulards
and a new far pain kept with the hand...
I've seen them singing in short days of an idea
and elbows and friendships weaved in a street
I've seen them pressing the tears of a spring that never came
flight of stork with wax wings...
Still I've seen them impatient in the queues for ice creams
when the sky tired of winter, it promises a bit of blue
little Queens between statues of heroes and workers
soft thorns of anxiety in round white breasts...
I've seen them
excited funny and sweaty for happiness
in the hotels where dancing shouting joy
and drinking beer and closing outside the usual snow and reality
and some between them dancing and dancing and then dancing...
I've seen them
in the evenings when factories and the streets are closed
on their lips vague smiles of waiting and who knows what
writing on freezed glasses their fantasies
poor beautiful women in love with love and life...the girls of East.

Spandau Ballet reunion @ Mediolanum Forum, Assago
True: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6e4WLdLNajs
Be free with your love:
I'll fly for you:

Gli Spandau "hanno dato l’annuncio ufficiale della loro reunion a bordo dell’HMS Belfast, la famosa nave militare inglese ormeggiata sulle rive del fiume Tamigi, teatro di un loro memorabile concerto all’inizio degli anni Ottanta.
Proprio come allora, partono per il loro giro del mondo dalla HMS Belfast.
Scoperti al Blitz Club di Soho, Londra nel 1979 nel bel mezzo di un’altra depressione economica, gli Spandau si sono formati a scuola nel nord di Londra e sono diventati una delle band più sensazionali al mondo. Da lavoratori londinesi appassionati di moda e musica, a superstar mondiali, gli Spandau Ballet hanno segnato lo stile e il sound degli anni Ottanta.
Non solo i loro album hanno venduto milioni di copie, il loro look e stile ha influenzato il mondo della moda e oltre. Hanno creato un loro stile unico, un mix di creatività, eleganza imprenditoriale e quello spirito libero della gioventù dei primi anni Ottanta in un periodo di crisi e agitazione.
Gli Spandau Ballet sono un fenomeno enorme, dal punto di vista commerciale e culturale."

Per fortuna che poi nel '79 è arrivata la Thatcher e i conservatori ci sono rimasti per quasi vent'anni... facendo grande l'Inghilterra, tutt'altro che il disastro Labour di questi anni.

..... Northern Italy anthem: Va pensiero (Go, thought, on golden wings) by Verdi (from Nabucco)

"L'Italia è la casa spirituale degli Oasis.
I ragazzi italiani sono come me, molto passionali.
4 elementi li contraddistinguono: il calcio, la musica, la famiglia e l'amore per l'eleganza. I miei amici italiani sono dei fighi, indossano vestiti e scarpe stupende, sciarpe favolose, occhiali da sole anche di notte e donne bellissime al loro fianco. Beh, sono considerato una figura santa in Italia. E' Milano... l'Italia è grande amico, cazzo se mi piace andarci".
(Noel Gallagher, Oasis)

Italy is Oasis spiritual home.
Italian boys are like me, very passionate.
4 elements mark them: football, music, family and love for elegance. My Italian friends are cool, they wear wonderful clothes and shoes, fabulous scarves, sunglasses even at night and beautiful women by their side. Well, I'm considered quite a holy figure in Italy, It's Milan... Italy's great man, I
fucking love going there.

[=Milan is a beautiful city. Many people would pay for staying here. I almost never go shopping, what I like in Milan is the people.]
"We get chatting to Marco who was around for Paolo Nutini arriving and had given him a quick hand shake then sloped off, (you know how cool guys like to play it), he is really a Brit Indie lad at heart trapped inside the body of an Italian guy, his taste in music is fabulous.
The tempo was troppo caldo (too hot weather), the Duomo is breathtaking to say the least. Milano women are ridiculously stylish and fabulously slim, gorgeous beings. The chef shaped my pizza into a love heart. Italian men are so smooth!

I'm pleased to announce that I created the "Milano" Facebook network, the only original one on Facebook (it took years to have it), and to use it you have to ask me (by mail here: marco@miamilan.com) a nice Google e-mail address, as "yourname@miamilan.com" ...I'm not Italian, I'm more: I'm from Milan. :D ...The funny part is that to make Facebook accept it, I put it as a "work network" but now it's also a place network. Milan people are known for being always busy in doing something, so this place-work network is appropriate :)
