People often send me emails asking me if I can help them. If you need to learn Italian or a tourist guide to go around, let me know. I'm a bit busy, I'm also translating things for the main Milan church, but I can find some time. I studied languages at Iulm university of Milan, I can speak English, Spanish, some German and I'm learning Catalan (and some Lithuanian and Polish). Of course I can also speak my mother tongue Italian and my city dialect, the funny Milanese.

"The tempo was troppo caldo (too hot weather), the Duomo (cathedral) is breathtaking to say the least. Milano women are ridiculously stylish and fabulously slim, gorgeous beings. Marco shaped my pizza into a love heart. Italian boys are so smooth!"

again about the restaurant at the lake near Milan:
Liam Gallagher, ex Oasis now Beady Eye, ‎"I take holiday at Lake Como a lot. Pretty expensive, but beautiful. If you go up there in the mountains there's a restaurant called The Black Cat (Gatto Nero, in Cernobbio). It's outside, on a cliff, and you look over the fucking lake ( :) ). The food's the bollocks ( :) ). It's amazing."
[he loves Gorgonzola cheese :]

compilation for the summer with some of my favourite songs

it wasn't easy to choose 'cause there were many. I put some images and videos.

  • George Harrison, "Wah wah" (final Harrison-Formula 1 photos). 'And I know how sweet life can be, if I keep myself free' :)
  • Bee Gees, "Stayin' alive", oh mamma mia I've seen my father's photos in the '70s, he was dressed the same ahaha (Stallone director and John Travolta actor, both of Italian origins, as the protagonist Tony Manero ^_^ ... I could also put something from Rocky Balboa-Stallone the Italian Stallion ^_^ but there's more than enough here about movies, at least 4 songs, with several films)
  • The Five Stairsteps (from Milan's sister city Chicago) - associated with Curtis Mayfield and George Harrison, "We must be in love" (these first three songs have something in common in the music :) ...photos: those American sculptures of love in Milan, by Robert Indiana.
  • Paul Weller, "Going places" (once performed live with Beady Eye's Gem). My double Paul, double when he was young :). By the Modfather  I would also pick The Jam's English rose, or something from The Style Council.
  • The Verve, "Valium skies".
  • Stereophonics, "Nothing precious at all" (one of my favourites to sing with rough voice & play by guitar... Some Formula 1 images with Stereophonics in Monza. 'She takes photographs of American cars' :). It's a great album, I wanted to pick also "You stole my money honey")
  • Ennio Morricone, "Once upon a time in the West" (there would be so many, inspiration for Noel Gallagher's melodies, I picked this one 'cause on Oasis first cd there was a western spaghetti film by Sergio Leone, The Good the Bad and the Ugly - with his music. He wrote something like 300 films soundtracks... fucking legend, seen some concerts even on the expensive front row - I didn't pay :)
  • The Queen, "In the lap of the Gods" (live version, shivers! Wembley 86, also best live act... do you remember the competition "Wembley's greatest event"? I knew, they elected Muse, ah! What a fucking shame. This is proof the new generation only looks at themselves and not at the huge past... big mistake)
  • The Who, "Baba O'Riley" (though it isn't in the film Quadrophenia. I put Pretty Green beginning in Milan and some images from films of those times, that are my favourites, Wonderwall feat. Jane Birkin, 2 by Michelangelo Antonioni, Blow-up with her and Zabriskie Point, one is the Swinging London, fashion and Milano Lambretta, the mods, the other is rock inside the film... and here's there's more than one explosion with fire, as at the end of the song Rockin' chair, see below)
  • Richard Ashcroft, "World keeps turning" (one of my favourites to sing... I find myself very comfortable singing his tunes. Here I put a photo of Richard on Barcelona Formula 1 circuit)
  • The Smashing Pumpkins (another band from Chicago :), "Whir".
  • The Beatles, "Free as a bird" (on an Oasis podium I would put also "Whatever", so I chose this one somehow similar, also because of the repeated 'free'). Notice at the beginning during the interview to the 3 Beatles there's a poster of Senna on McLaren behind. I can't see well, it's about the 1993 car if I'm not wrong, but the interview should be about '95-'96.
  • Oasis, "Rockin' chair" (difficult to choose between this and "Stay young", so I picked the one with a deeper meaning. That is also the question if it's better to stay young or wise :). Reminds me of England and my Brit island Minorca. Final fire burning the pier in Weston-super-Mare of 1995 Rockin' chair cover image, in 2008 one year before the spit of Oasis, announcing it... you remember, the "curse of Oasis covers". I put a final image with a "new generation".... Only one thing is missing: you remember, when I was "immersed in nature", the butterfly with eyes on her wings in August 2009 announcing me the end of Oasis... and the future with Beady..Eye :)
  • Led Zeppelin, "The rain song" (I wrote enough about this, also in the film Almost famous, but to me the best conveivable in music in the unledded version with orchestra). Keeping the nice video in the nature, I changed the audio, and it fits very well (when it doesn't, it didn't fit also in the movie "The song remains the same").

As you notice in the one hour long video, this time I didn't put almost anything about football :), maybe just the final "some might say we will find a brighter day" from Manchester City fans, but it's an Oasis quote :)
So here I add some "on the bench" :)
Paolo Nutini, Suede, Kasabian, Harry Nilsson ("Everybody's talkin' ", from the great film "Midnight cowboy", from those same times above, inspiring Oasis' Turn up the sun by Andy), Pink Floyd ("Shine on you crazy diamond"), The Beach Boys (Aschcroft would pick "God only knows", the 'perfect song according to him), The Kinks ("Victoria" or "Shangri-La" picked by Noel), David Bowie ("Heroes" also covered by Oasis, "Absolute beginners" etc.), Ocean Colour Scene ("Better Day"), Pulp ("Disco 2000", "Something changed", etc.), something to remember the '80s but published in the recent years: Keane ("This is the last time", "Sunshine", etc.), Glasvegas ("Flowers & football tops", "Lonesome swan", etc.) and from the '80s: Spandau Ballet, The Smiths ("The boy with the thorn in his side", "This charming man", etc.), still The Rolling Stones ("Start me up") and as last song: where I took inspiration for my voice when I used to sing, Kim Carnes ("Bette Davis eyes").

"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!"

(Liam Gallagher, Oasis)

Milan is the best fucking crowd, and I really mean it!

"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

..... 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 :)
