Oh we are safe. Love is still here :)
As I told you and contacted him, no English artist as last year, but still the Kiss, fortunately it seems there's something similar: no mistletoe now but these hearts going up to Milan-England symbol :), in the heart of Milan. And still the blue dome, oh yes.
Tomorrow Saturday at 18:00 hour, the inauguration ceremony in Duomo cathedral square.
There will be 60 works until January all around the city: clouds, bridges, glistening fogs, moons, fountains, suns, butterflies, whales, etc., all made of light, as a kaleidoscope.
And something special for John Lennon anniversary, from 8 December.
Psychedelic experience in Milan.
Beady Eye: bring the light :)



Lucy in the sky with diamonds, the girl with kaleidoscope eyes,
inspired by Alice in Wonderland.
Many led festival works seem to come from Alice.
Lennon said it's the girl on a boat coming to save him: he lost her
but then finds her again at the station.

  6. La ragazza con gli occhi da caleidoscopio. Questa canzone trae ispirazione dal seguito di "Alice in Wonderland" dello scrittore-fotografo-matematico inglese Lewis Carroll, cioè "Attraverso lo specchio" di cui ho scritto in "I am the walrus". (Poi ce ne sono altri due: "Le avventure di Alice sottoterra" e "Nursery Alice" per bimbi da 0 a 3 anni :). In particolare, è ispirata dal capitolo quinto di "Alice nello specchio", in cui Alice discende un fiume in barca con la Pecora. Qui c'è la migliore vena creativa di John Lennon, la sua fantasia: è una straordinaria tessitura narrativa per immagini, diventata nella memoria di tutti una specie di affresco dell'era psichedelica. Di certo questo pezzo risente di quelle esperienze, anche se John spiegò che non è una canzone acida. Disse: "L'immagine era Alice sulla barca...ed era anche la donna che un giorno sarebbe venuta a salvarmi, una ragazza con gli occhi caleidoscopio uscita dal cielo". Leggo dal libro: Alice si trova sulla barca con la Pecora, è Alice a remare. A un certo punto nel testo Carroll dice: "...doveva esserci qualche cosa di molto curioso in quell'acqua, pensava Alice, perchè di tanto in tanto i remi restavano come piantati in qualche cosa di solido e ci voleva una bella fatica a tirarli su". Poi la Pecora avvisa Alice che questo non è uno dei soliti fiumi: pigli un granchio! "Un bel granchiolino! - Pensò Alice. - Beh mi piacerebbe!" Poi c'è una parte in cui Alice vuole fermarsi a raccogliere dei fiori altissimi, ondeggianti e profumati. "...e per un po' dimenticò la Pecora mentre si sporgeva dall'orlo della barca, coi capelli arruffati che sfioravano l'acqua e gli occhi scintillanti di gioia... – Oh bellino quello là, peccato che non ci arrivo... – Neanche a farlo apposta, sebbene Alice s'ingegnasse a cogliere una gran quantità di bei fiori mentre la barca scivolava via, ce n'era sempre uno più bello degli altri che non poteva raggiungere! ... Che le importava se i fiori, appena colti, avevano cominciato subito ad appassire e a perdere il loro profumo e la loro bellezza? Quelli, che erano fiori di sogno, svanivano quasi come neve al Sole, mentre erano lì ammucchiati ai suoi piedi... Ma Alice ci badava appena: c'erano tante altre strane cose che la incuriosivano!" La canzone dei Beatles inizia così: "Immaginati in una barca su un fiume, con alberi di mandarino e cieli di marmellata. Qualcuno ti chiama, tu rispondi lentamente, a girl with kaleidoscope eyes. Fiori di cellophane gialli e verdi che svettano sopra di te. Cerchi la ragazza con il sole negli occhi, e se n'è andata :(. Seguila sino a un ponte presso una fontana, dove persone cavallo a dondolo mangiano torte di marshmallow (come Marshmallow Man, il gigante bianco dei Ghostbusters :), tutti sorridono mentre scivoli oltre i fiori, che crescono così incredibilmente alti. Taxi di giornale (questa è un'immagine di McCartney) compaiono sulla sponda, aspettando di portarti via. Ci sali dietro con la testa fra le nuvole, e te ne sei andato... Immaginati su un treno in una stazione, con facchini di plastilina con cravatte di specchio, all'improvviso c'è qualcuno al cancelletto, la ragazza con occhi di caleidoscopio!"
    Per quanto riguarda le iniziali "LSD", questa dell'acrostico è solo una leggenda, difatti John ha sempre smentito tutto: diceva che l'idea per questa canzone gli era stata data dal figlio Julian, allora bambino, in un disegno fatto per la sua compagna di scuola Lucy (che è morta proprio recentemente, dedichiamole questo post).

..... 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.

"Milano è il miglior fottuto pubblico, e lo dico davvero!"
(toccandosi il cuore più volte)
(Liam Gallagher, Oasis)

Milan is the best fucking crowd, and I really mean it!
(touching his heart more times)

"Nice jacket"

..... Milan was appointed as the 1st city of fashion in the world.
"Milano è una città bellissima. Molta gente pagherebbe per stare qui. Non vado quasi mai a fare shopping, quello che mi piace di Milano è la gente".
(David Beckham, Milan)
[=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!

The centre of the world. The new zone where Oasis had to perform their last concert in history... before the "break" of 5 years... strange coincidence, 2015... we're all part of a Masterplan :))) In his 'Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere', Noel refers to Italy as the bands’ 'spiritual home' and anyone who has been to an Oasis gig in Italy will know why. It’s fitting that Oasis have chosen Milan to stage the final show... but then Noel left the band again (for the 3rd time) 2 days before (from the official site ) ..... arts->football->art->food->art->fashion->football->music->art... watch this slideshow I made with Oasis piano music of Live forever "we see things they'll never see...'cause I just wanna fly": the 1st city of fashion in the world, the most famous painting in the world, the most famous theatre in the world, the best food in the world, the biggest Christmas tree in the world, the biggest equestrian statue in the world, the 1st team in football history, Milan is magic ..... the most beautiful woman in the world, Breil Milano Compleanno Image Banner 300 x 250

..... Milano da bere, Milan to drink: historic tv advert in 1987 by Marco Mignani, the same man who invented the political name "Forza Italia", conservative party by Berlusconi, born in Milan
..... ahahaha this is hilarious. One of many Milan red drinks ("Milan to drink") like Ramazzotti, Campari, etc. by a Milan comic band fooling around Milan homosexual fashion stylists ^_^ One says "divine" that also means "of wine" and the other goes "which wine, you stupid (girl) !" ahahaha

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 :)
