Zani's Guide to Making The Perfect Milanese Risotto (With Mushrooms)

There is no doubt that risotto is the stuff of legend. As one of the great classic dishes that does not come from France, it is embraced and recognized by most cuisines. When I reflect upon monumental things that have enhanced my life this dish will be up there amongst them. A lofty, but worthy introduction indeed this is. Risotto is a paradox. It is simplicity and sophistication on a plate. Every professional chef is measured by their ability to make not just a good risotto, but a great one. There are certain lines that cannot be crossed and it can make or break a chefs' reputation. If it is on the menu you will be measured by its execution whether you have a critic in the house or just a punter. Word gets around quickly if the bite is not 'al dente'.

The primary skill required is essentially one of the most basic attributes needed to work in a professional kitchen. It is by far the most difficult aspect to master-patience. It is possible that a chef will never learn this skill, often it takes years to acquire. Under the pressure of a busy service with the restaurant packed full of hungry people waiting for their orders, as the waiters bark at the pass for their table, you simply cannot turn your back on the last stage of cooking a risotto, not for a second. The richness and creaminess come from the stirring and the adding of the stock. There is a measured resting period involved which can be tricky to judge and if the rice is not 'al dente' this results in failure. Failure, shame and the bin. Even though on another day it might be possible when the orders go more in your favour the reality is it takes twenty minutes at the stove to cook risotto requiring constant attention. A two or three Michelin stared kitchen will have one chef for two paying clients making perfection possible. You will not find such attention to detail in a mid-range restaurant.

Your home is perfect for risotto, there you can give it the attention it requires and deserves.

When you cook a risotto you embrace a tradition that transcends contemporary cooking methods. I love some of the contemporary techniques applied to food today, but something doesn't sit right with pressure cooked or sous vide risotto.

What you need rhythm for your body and a mantra for your mind: stir stock stir stock stir stock.

What ever it takes to nail this recipe do it. Don't get distracted by not being able to get interesting mushrooms, or making fresh chicken stock, this recipe will work well with the dried mushrooms readily available and or the ordinary button/chestnutmushrooms. Use a stock cube if you must, just make it happen and experience the sensual groans and moans that ensues when a really good risotto hits a table.

I went with wild mushrooms in this recipe as at this time of year they are in season where I live. I bought fresh porcini mushrooms from a market and picked some from the forest. As I said it is well worth the application to get the ingredients but go with it any how because essentially we are making the classic risotto Milanese with the addition of mushrooms.

Ingredients
250g arborio or carnaroli (rice)
75g shallots
250g mixed mushrooms
30g dried mushroooms
1.5 litres chicken stock
5 garlic cloves
300ml decent full flavoured white wine
75g parmesan Parmigiano Reggiano
30g butter
A squeeze of lemon
Chives
Maldon sea-salt and ground black pepper

Prep list
Clean and quarter your mushrooms (Never wash them as they go slimy, if you are using wild mushrooms take the extra time it takes to make sure there is no grit. That will ruin the whole dish. Trim the wild mushrooms back until you are sure there is not place for the grit to hide).

Cover the dried mushrooms in boiling water
Finely chop the shallots
Press the garlic or finely chop it
Heat the stock on the cooker
Grate the parmesan
Chop the butter into squares
Open the wine and measure it out
Finely chop the chives

Method
Take a large non-stick frying pan and put it onto a high heat. If you don't have one then use whatever one you have with the heaviest bottom. Add the olive oil and when it is really hot add the fresh mushrooms. Drain and squeeze the liquid out of the dried mushrooms and finely chop and combine with the others in the pan. Add the liquid to your stock. Keep the rice moving with a silicone spatula or wooden spoon. When the mushrooms start to brown and the water draws out of them, add the shallots and then the garlic. When these are softened add the rice. Stir the rice and cook it out a little bit until all the liquid and oil has soaked into it. Next add the wine and cook until it is dry.

The risotto starts now by stirring in a ladleful of hot stock. When the liquid has reduced repeat this process until the rice is nearly cooked. You will know this by trying the rice. It should be firm but not chalky. After your last ladleful of stock your rice should be left wet. Turn off the heat and add the butter and parmesan without stirring and cover the pan with tin foil or a lid. Leave to rest for five minutes while you warm up the plates.

Remove the lid and gently fold in the butter and parmesan. Add a small squeeze of lemon and taste for seasoning. If necessary add salt and pepper.

When you plate it up you want the rice to cover the surface area of the plate. Don't pile it too high as you don't want a mountain of risotto. Better to go back for seconds.

To finish sprinkle with the chives and ground black pepper.

Wine to drink: Italian wine, appointed as the best in the world. The new "vino di Milano" for Expo 2015, by very good Nettare dei Santi (Nectar of Saints) from San Colombano al Lambro, produced on our same hill where we've always made wine.
You can see the languages (Russian, Hungarian, Ukrainian, Polish, Swedish, Finnish, Dutch, Czech, Slovak, Danish, Japanese, Croatian, Slovenian, Bulgarian, etc.) here: www.ilvinodimilano.it (it's very cheap, I've seen bottles for only € 4,90)

AMORE & PSICHE 

until 13 January: free visit to see "Amore e Psiche" by Canova, close to the Gallery @ Palazzo Marino (not the famous "Amore & Psiche" by Canova with the amazing angel kissing, stolen by the french, as always... must have been the french thief Arsene Lupin... their museums are collections of thefts, especially by Napoleon - ask people in Venice, Tuscany and Milan to know what they think about him, the dictator. All art works that should come back to Italy. The only art by the French: Impressionism, that is: bullshit that even children could paint... the only thing the french are good at, is running away with their white flag, them scaredy cats, or being sodomized, dirty people with no bidet in their bathrooms)

MADONNINA

All the cathedrals in the world have a CROSS (+) at the top.
...apart from one: Milan's Duomo (quite strange, isn't it?), with a woman: a golden statue of Our Lady (about 4 metres tall), the "Madonnina" (Madunina in Milanese dialect).
Now they're working on it...
I've been many times on the roof but never close to the statue, because it wasn't possible. Someday I will...
Before the Duomo and BEFORE the Romans (who did NOT found Milan), there was a temple dedicated to another woman: Belisama (Goddess of fire, both sun and moon) by the Celts, founders of Milan.
When at Mussolini times they built the Torre Branca (just above Just Cavalli), he wanted it to be lower than Duomo's Madonnina, but now it isn't (for just 10 centimetres).
When they built the "grattacielo Pirelli" skyscraper, they put a small copy of the statue (85 cms) because the palace is taller than the Duomo. The statue has a great meaning, not only religious, to protect the Milanese people.
Now they built skyscrapers (Palazzo Regione Lombardia, Torre Hines) taller than the "Pirellone", so they moved the statue (and there was a whole ceremony, with the archbishop blessing it)

3 KINGS PROCESSION (corteo dei Re Magi)

as every 6 January, the importance of the Milano version comes from the church where they arrive to bring the gifts (gold, frankincense, myrrh): the Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio is the site of the tomb of the Three Magi or Three Kings. It's one of Milano oldest traditions, since 1300.
In the 12th century, when Milan was sacked by Frederick Barbarossa, the relics of the Magi were appropriated and subsequently taken to Cologne. In 1903/4, fragments of the bones and garments were sent back to Sant'Eustorgio's. Nowadays they are in the Three Kings altar.
Always seen it when we were kids not only because it's close to us, also for the animals (elephants, camels, horses, etc.), music, etc. You can also be one of the people wearing costumes.
from Duomo to San Lorenzo to Saint Eustorgio (living nativity scene)



3 museums: Leonardo Da Vinci (museo scienza e tecnica-tecnologia, with Leonardo lab for the Gioconda-Mona Lisa, Uomo Vitruviano-Vitruvian man, etc., Galileo Galilei, sottomarino Toti submarine), Cenacolo Vinciano (@ Santa Maria delle Grazie, Ultima Cena-Last Supper, the most famous painting in the world, also in the Da Vinci Code) and 900 (Novecento) with Milan Futurism, Boccioni, Piero Manzoni, Modigliani, etc.
We've seen in a special event the piece of Moon in Milan near us (rarely shown), value: 5 million €uros, with the Italian flag that was on the Moon.
As model Evelina said: being in Milan is like being on the Moon :)

You can also visit other museums as the Pinacoteca di Brera, with "il Bacio" (the Kiss) by Francesco Hayez, Dead Christ by Mantegna, etc.

Era da tempo che volevamo fare un recensione del famigerato (ora Mediolanum) Forum di Assago, non è la prima volta che accadono situazioni spiacevoli.
Sempre da lasciarti l'amaro in bocca, che ti viene voglia di chiedere dei rimborsi.
I complimentoni per il trattamento che hanno riservato alla gente pagante la giornata dedicata al tennis.
Dopo aver annunciato che le gare iniziavano alle 13, ci hanno fatto aspettare ore fuori al freddo, facendoci
perdere le gare dei ragazzi, coi loro genitori e parenti tra di noi.
Anche presi per i fondelli, da diversi personaggi distinti che si presentavano annunciandoci l'apertura "a minuti", "2 minuti", ecc.
Aspettavano, per le perquisizioni, i Carabinieri... che molto dopo sono arrivati e se ne stavano chiusi in macchina... troppo freddo fuori.
Come se non bastasse, siamo stati addirittura sgridati più di una volta, perchè all'interno non ci trovavamo seduti al nostro posto del biglietto, cosa praticamente impossibile, a meno che tutto il Forum si fosse alzato, in un effetto domino.
Non funzionerà bene mai niente in Italia.
Andremo sicuramente ancora al Forum e ne parleremo benissimo a tutti gli amici, parenti e conoscenti, anche
su internet.
Se poi a qualcuno viene la brillante idea di non usare la macchina per evitare il traffico e l'ingorgo che c'era fuori, e usufruire del "servizio" della metropolitana al Forum (5 euro), ovvero un'attesa interminabile (e non alla sera tardi, ma ad ora di cena del sabato!), terminata con un classico italiano: L'APPLAUSO della gente quando è arrivata. Come quando gli italiani applaudono l'atterraggio riuscito dell'aereo.
Addirittura hanno dovuto bloccare la gente di sopra ai biglietti, perchè la banchina era colma.
All'andata addirittura passano una serie di metro "Abbiategrasso" e non Assago (e pur sapendo dell'evento al Forum, perchè lo sanno, lo vedono dalla quantità di gente).
Per fortuna che il prezzo del biglietto dei mezzi col sindaco Pisapia è aumentato del 50% eh...
sicuramente un servizio migliore eh...


2nd part (national anthems, Serbian, Russian and Italian) and a bit of videos and photos

‎"I've not played many exhibitions in the past few years so it was a lot of fun to visit Milan at the weekend for an exhibition event. I shopped, ate great food, took part in some pretty strange press conferences, and I even won a game against Vinci. Actually, I won the match, then Maria Sharapova and I lost the doubles, but overall we won 2-1. But to be honest the score didn't matter - it was just a lot of fun being on court and relaxing, enjoying the occasion, away from a tournament."
(Ana)


exhibition highlights + interviews
feat. Sharapova's orgasmic sighs, lol

the best game was the first one
6:00 Ana tries to hit the ball between her legs
Maria pretended (to have a laugh) to be angry against a person who shouted "forza Sara"
20:33 Maria pretends to get angry and tells a lineswoman to wear glasses, lol. She's never been so smiling. It was the first time Maria & Ana played together, but they lost that one, 'cause Vinci-Errani are 1st in the world as double.
It's very exciting to see this sport live.

the results were:
Ivanovic - Vinci 7-6
Sharapova - Errani 6-2
double: Vinci Errani - Sharapova Ivanovic 6-4


amazing day!!! Maria!!! Ana!!! walking down the first fashion street in the world with who? Maria Sharapova.
video - 0:29 Maria wonders where Armani cafè is (from Armani hotel)
1:12 Armani house
I filmed even Maria’s ass, lol @ 8:14 when she was tying her shoes, then I whistle :)
I also caught her with tennis player Dimitrov, and the most popular Italian newspaper stole me the scoop...
They are incredibly beautiful, especially Ana Ivanovic. More than models, those who look sick. The people usually think I’m a F1 driver ^_^, this time at first they thought I was Maria’s “escort”, lol. I met many paparazzi, I even got a pass and went to the presentation among journalists, where I could NOT stay, lol. It was a whole adventure. I also helped a disabled boy, it was just a perfect day. It was not possible to film inside restaurants, bar and hotel, only @ Gazzetta dello Sport press conference.

I sell the plastic cups where Maria & Ana were drinking :)) (proof at the end), to who offers more :D
on eBay, click here

They showed to Maria a photo when she was 13, first time in Milan, and she said she was very thin.
also Ana said she likes Milano and the people, the warmth they convey.
Maria sounded a bit more “princess”, you know, and she did not stop for the photographers outside the bar and when she entered the conference. Ana stopped in both cases.
I think Maria is beautiful but too idolised, while the real beauty is Ana.

Tomorrow the games @ Forum (it’s also a charity), "la Grande Sfida" with Errani and Vinci.

"What a great time we had in Milan. Got me all into the Christmas spirit with the weather and shopping but then I arrived in Florida and BOOM that feeling quickly evaporated...it's super warm and no shopping...only for pretty sea shells."
(Maria)


Persone pessime incontrate: i fotografi (paparazzi), di una maleducazione esemplare.
Per non parlare della "gazza ladra", La Gazzetta dello Sport (vedi post su Oasisblues) che ha rubato questo mio video, facendolo proprio, pure etichettandolo "Gazzetta TV", addirittura come "scoop esclusivo". Ridicoli.

Probably nothing will happen on 21 December at 11:11 am
(by the way: is it London time? Milan time?), but what if something happens? surely not the end of the world, and surely not that hour and not that day. But what if something serious happens another day? something changing life in worse (as if the crisis wasn't enough).
I'm sure there are many things we humans don't know (I'm not necessarily referring to God and religion), and many things they don't tell us...
for example, an asteroid hitting for sure the world, is something they would never tell us, or it would be a total chaos.
Also, I'm sure that "aliens" exist, I mean other forms of life. The universe is so huge, infinite, that it's 100% sure other creatures exist, and nobody of us knows. I know, lol. I don't think they're watching us (but I'm watching you, lol), but what if suddenly someone was here... we wouldn't be prepared and many would die for a heart attack.
I often notice too "strange coincidences", and I wonder if we're all part of a masterplan...

things to do before the end of the world:

- visiting Milan :P
- spending all your money
- visiting the square with the biggest (natural) Christmas tree in the world (Milan)
- kissing someone under Milan lights :)
- attending a fashion catwalk in the first city of fashion, Milan (can't do it now, next ones in February). So let's say now: fashion tour along the streets
- eating the best food in world (you already know which one :) and the biggest pizza ever
- having a threesome, lol (for those who don't know: 3 persons having sex ^_^_^_^ )
- going to Fucking, Austria (lol), before they change the name
- going nude outside, lol
- other similar things you always wanted to do but never had the courage
- having a bath in a public fountain, as in La Dolce Vita
- driving @ the most legendary circuit, Monza
- going to ski here in Sun Valley and tasting the best water to drink
- visiting the most famous painting in the world, Last supper by Leonardo Da Vinci in Milan
(you should book it now, or you could see it on 21 December 2013...)
- getting drunk the night before the end
- getting drunk around the hour of the end of the world (thanks to the Mayans...), for example @ Maya restaurant...
in case it doesn't end, celebrating toasting to the Mayans
- watching a game @ stadium with the best team in history, AC Milan

more to add soon...

brands: Headbanger, Harely Davidson, A-style, Cfmoto, Kawasaki, Varta (batteries), Honda, MV Agusta, Yamaha, Suzuki, Rizoma, Moto Guzzi (California), Peugeot, Brammo, Interphone, etc.

On the metro going to the Forum (Assago), 2 foreign blonde girls (maybe Germans) beside me... I stared at one 'cause she looked like a doll... then I saw they were speaking together secretly and suddenly they looked at me, smiling... Milan.
(the same happened last summer @ Stone Roses). I thought they were saying I was staring at one, but I'm probably wrong, 'cause I wasn't really.
I sold the passes to redhead Florence + the Machine, so I'm now a millionaire... Milan.
I've seen the crowd waiting outside: it was almost completely made of homosexual people (nothing against them, maybe you like them, I have a "too old" mind, traditional... but I have some experience in threesomes, lol). I mean both clearly gays and clearly lesbians... Milan.
Or maybe the boys were the girls' "personal shoppers"... Seriously, in Milan heterosexuals are extinct... that's why Courtney Love and Kate Moss chose milan to have sex.
I sold the passes to a gang of "strange" people from Naples (they re-sold them to the people for a higher price), they looked like half-criminals, and one (the one I chose 'cause looking "honest") even told me to steal a ticket that was on the table of the office... Milan. 
I said I have no experience.
On the metro, going away from that strange place with strange people, a couple of girls were kissing among the people... not a simple kiss, looked more like a sex scene... Milan.

According to the people attending the concert, it was great, with new songs, also because it was the first one of her new tour. I had already seen her @ Arena, the stage is her place.

2nd & 3rd parts of the "new Milan". 
she said a latte (macchiato :). The "Paris" Milan is becoming New York. The lift (2:45) was impressive too: they said "piano terra" (ground floor) betweeen 9th & 6th floor, lol. 
It's the highest point in Milan (well, the 43. floor), because the spire of the "Torre Hines-Pelli" is not reachable (not yet). 
There was the "mostra moto lombarde" (39° piano palazzo Regione Lombardia),a little part of the Eicma 2012. 
The final part of this song said: you know the trip has just begun 
(part 3 soon :) 


Argentina in Milano :), Kazakhstan, they finally added the Ukraine flag, 0:29 Lithuania and 2:47 strings sound right in front of La Scala :)



part 4 (Porta Nuova)


love this video, Milan Dreaming
the sounds... there are so many churches in the city.

Depeche Mode 18 July


the new skyline of Milano. The Duomo is a bit hidden. The heights are different: the new skyscraper is double of the Duomo.

The Kiss (under Milan lights) 
- 1 month. If you’re planning to come to Milan, a nice period is December-January. The city with its Christmas lights becomes magic, almost psychedelic, kaleidoscopic. 
The dome of “Galleria Vittorio Emanuele” becomes blue (to represent the sky with stars) and the people usually kiss here. In the centre of the dome: the red & white flag of Milan (=England). 
The main colours are gold and blue, and the place looks magic. You can see something in the video below. 
They usually also count the kisses, and every kiss automatically donates money for a charity for Africa. 
They just closed a McDonald’s here (it was a meeting point for students), to have another Prada. Money talks…
In the square, the biggest (natural) Christmas tree in the world (from the Italian Alps, my family’s origins, the mountains you can see from Milan)


song: "Tu mi ricordi Milano" (you remind me of Milan), Ornella Vanoni. 
At the end: "How to seduce women" by Marinetti (Milan Futurism). 
the final part is a bit ambiguous ;) 
"giro di boa di gente che parte": Boateng (lol) 
(summary, literal translation) "...Milan strange face... people leaving and arriving everyday... you're similar to these Navigli channels dressed with fog (coloured stripes of the model = coloured stripes of the channel...GENIUS :) ...your old city streets, your shyness, I walk them around... then coming back around Milan centre I'll feel inside me your tenderness... behind your eyes: windows always filtering some poetry... you're as the heat of a breath stopping beside you when it's cold... I wanna take in my hand the great Milan and your freedom... now I turn off the lights of this city... I love you (ti amo), I come back home with you Milan (Milano), home with you, I love you (ti amo), home with you"

In the video you can also see some of the flags in Milan centre, now 108 countries (Estonia, Eesti joined, will be about 250) for Expo 2015: Russia (Россия), Lithuania (Lietuva), Belgium (Belgique-België), Latvia (Latvija), Japan (日本,) Switzerland (Schweiz-Svizzera-Suisse), Hungary (Magyarország), Argentina...

Lithuania and Latvia are the 2 countries from where I've seen the most beautiful women in the world.

"Milan: what a beautiful place to die". 
(John Carradine, last words before dying in Milan, at Fatebenefratelli hospital, at age 82. Some hours before, he had climbed the 328 steep steps of Milan's Gothic cathedral, the Duomo. His son David Carradine (and then Keith) were with him, reading Shakespeare to him)

"Sapessi com'è strano sentirsi innamorati a Milano... sapessi com'è strano darsi appuntamenti a Milano, in un grande magazzino, in piazza o in Galleria, che pazzia. Eppure in questo posto impossibile, tu mi hai detto ti amo, io ti ho detto ti amo".
(Ornella Vanoni, song "Innamorati a Milano" (lovers in Milan)
(= if you only knew how it's 'strange' (different) to be in love in Milan... and how strange to date someone in Milan, in a big store, in a square o in the Gallery, how crazy. But, in this impossible place, you told me you love me, I told you I love you)

"Tu mi ricordi Milano, il suo viso strano, che d'inverno è più vivo. Il giro di boa quotidiano di gente che parte, di gente che arriva. La parte più calda e più densa, la mia confidenza con questa città. Mi pare che tu rassomigli a questi Navigli vestiti di nebbia... Le strade della tua città vecchia, la tua timidezza, io le giro a piedi. E poi ritornando nel centro mi sentirò dentro la tua tenerezza... E dietro i tuoi occhi finestre che filtrano sempre un po' di poesia, con questa mania di vivere tutto come dovessi andare via. Le strade diverse che vanno lontano dalla grande città... Sei come al caldo di un respiro che quando fa freddo ti si ferma vicino e ti fa sentire anche in periferia di essere ricco, di essere vivo. Ho voglia di prendere in mano la grande Milano e la tua libertà, io ora spengo le luci di questa città. Ti amo, torno a casa con te Milano, a casa con te, ti amo, a casa con te"

"It’s the whole culture, I feel like I slot right in because it’s just very relaxed. The food is incredible, but it is the people who make it. It’s obviously aesthetically beautiful, you’ve got ancient monuments and you can walk round them and they’re beautiful, but for me, it’s the actual people who live here. There seems to be a really good family spirit. The computer generation doesn’t seem to have changed that. There is still a beautiful family vibe."
("Britalian" Sergio Pizzorno, Kasabian, in Milan)
(= è tutta la cultura, mi sento di inserirmi bene perché è proprio molto rilassato. Il cibo è incredibile, ma sono le persone che lo fanno. Ovviamente è esteticamente bella, ci sono i monumenti antichi e ci si può camminare intorno e sono belli, ma per me, sono le persone vere che vivono qui. Sembra che ci sia uno spirito famigliare davvero bello. La generazione del computer non sembra averlo cambiato. C'è ancora una bella atmosfera di famiglia)

Non è vero che sono brutta. Non è vero che sopra di me c'è sempre la nebbia. Non è vero che sono fredda e penso solo ai soldi. Per chi mi avete preso? Io sono Milano. E sono una bella signora.
(Un giorno a Milano – Raffaella Rietmann, Michele Tranquillini)

"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. 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. He shaped my pizza into a love heart. Italian men are so smooth!"
(Jacq www.jacqmodel.blogspot.it)
(= il tempo era troppo caldo, il Duomo è mozzafiato a dir poco. Le donne di Milano sono esageratamente eleganti e incredibilmente magre, creature magnifiche. Siamo riusciti a chiacchierare con Marco che era in giro per Paolo Nutini in arrivo e gli aveva dato una veloce stretta di mano poi è sparito (sai come piace giocare ai ragazzi fighi :), è davvero un ragazzo Brit nel cuore dentro il corpo di un ragazzo italiano, il suo gusto per la musica è favoloso.

Sì, Milano è proprio bella, amico mio, e credimi che qualche volta c'è proprio bisogno di una tenace volontà per resistere alle sue seduzioni, e restare al lavoro. Ma queste seduzioni sono fomite, eccitamento continuo al lavoro, sono l'aria respirabile perché viva la mente; ed il cuore, lungi dal farci torto non serve spesso che a rinvigorirla. Provasi davvero la febbre di fare; in mezzo a cotesta folla briosa, seducente, bella, che ti si aggira attorno, provi il bisogno d'isolarti, assai meglio di come se tu fossi in una solitaria campagna. E la solitudine ti è popolata da tutte le larve affascinanti che ti hanno sorriso per le vie e che son diventate patrimonio della tua mente.
(Giovanni Verga)

Se quand'era tempo avessi potuto compiacere ad un mio desiderio, io sarei andato a vivere alcuni anni a Napoli, alcuni a Milano. Queste due città, una per la sua grande popolazione, l'altra per molte particolari condizioni, sono da qualche tempo la stanza del pensare filosofico in Italia. Esse furono abitate da quasi tutti i nostri scrittori che s'innalzarono ad una certa elevatezza d'idee, ed abbracciarono una certa estensione di principii.
(Giuseppe Bianchetti)

"Noel refers to Italy as Oasis 'spiritual home' and anyone who has been to an Oasis gig in Italy will know why. It’s fitting they have chosen Milan to stage the final show..." (from the official site)
(= Noel si riferisce all'Italia come la "casa spirituale degli Oasis" e chiunque sia stato a un concerto degli Oasis in Italia sa perchè. E' azzeccato che abbiano scelto Milano per l'ultimo spettacolo... - nel 2015...)
"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, ex 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.)

Lassa pur ch'el mond el disa | ma Milan l'è un gran Milan. 
Lascia pure che il mondo parli, ma Milano è una gran Milano.
(= Let the world talk, but Milan is a great Milan) (unique)
(Giovanni D'Anzi)

(from Milan "anthem")
Tutt el mond a l'è paes | e semm d'accord | ma Milan l'è on gran Milan. 
Tutto il mondo è paese | e siamo d'accordo | ma Milano è una gran Milano [unica].
(dalla canzone popolare [oh mia bella] Madunina )

oh mia bela Madunina, che te brìlet de luntàn, tüta d'ora e picinina, tì te dòminet Milàn, sota a tì se viv la vida, se stà mai cui màn in màn...
sì, vegnì sensa paüra, nüm ve slungaremm la maan...

oh mia bella Madonnina, che brilli da lontano, tutta d'oro e piccolina, tu domini Milano, sotto di te si vive la vita, non si sta mai con le mani in mano... sì, venite senza paura, noi vi daremo una mano
(= oh my beautiful Lady [the golden statue-symbol], you shine from far, all of gold and tiny, you dominate Milan, under you we live our life, always having something to do... yes, come here with no fear, we'll give you a hand)

...ma poi vègnen chì a Milan.
...ma poi vengono qui a Milano.
(= but then (everybody's) coming to Milan)
(dalla canzone popolare [oh mia bella] Madunina )

(alla stazione col colbacco) 
Totò in Milan, from the film "Totò, Peppino e la malafemmina", year 1956). This is the station where also the Beatles arrived. Because of some stereotypes, they arrive dressed as if they were soldiers in Russia :) 
Totò is sure: "in Milan it can't be warm. ...Maybe it's a warm coldness"... pun, game with words: "when there's fog, you can't see. There is fog and you can't see it", lol. 
"Why are they laughing? Because you, dressed as a milanese, are ridiculous", lol 

(informazioni al vigile) 
very popular scene in Italy. 
They're holding their hands, lol. The Duomo was dirty, because of pollution (cars could go around). "What is that? the town hall? ^^ What are you saying, it must be the Scala theatre ^^ (scala = stairway) And where is the stairway? ^^ It must be inside ^^ It's beautiful, it seems real. "It's Etruscan style ^^ Let's ask that soldier ^^ Are you crazy, that must be an Austrian general ^^ It's ok, we're allies ^^ (then they think he's German but he speaks funny Milanese and they talk in half-French ^^) "he speaks Italian! congratulations!" lol ... What's that? the arch of Titus ^^ isn't it dangerous? ^^

reminds me of when we went around with a model from Czech Republic and my friend said: the Duomo is Baroque, lol

(Colosseo)
now that finally we are in Milan, let's go and see that famous Colosseum? lol

I have free passes for Florence + the Machine in Milano (20 November) if you're interested. Red hair, very Milano :)

Anyway, there's still some party for Halloween and it's still possible to cook risotto ;), with sweet pumpkin.

The "new Milan" is from projects started some years ago of course, not now.
This is Corso Como District (@ Garibaldi, torre Hines, Porta Nuova), the new zone under construction of our historic club Hollywood Milano.
These buildings ("palazzi") are impressive to see here, 'cause Italy is not a country of skyscrapers ("grattacieli"), even if there are great architects as Renzo Piano (e.g. London's Shard). The square is by Argentinian of Italian origins César Pelli. The main skyscraper is the tallest one in Italy.
@ 2:32 hotel Principe di Savoia where AC Milan the best club in history was founded and Oasis used to stay, we were meeting them with the Oasis groupies. In the 90s we were meeting @ Four Seasons hotel in Jesus street next to Via Montenapoleone (first fashion street in the world)

from an American, impressions about Milano:
"Imagine Paris.
Now, imagine New York.
Now, imagine that New York and Paris fused themselves together and relocated to northern Italy. 
Streamlined, classic European architecture that I love with a grungier feel, more graffiti, and relentless drivers. High fashion, fierce fashion, spikes and stilettos and huge sunglasses wherever you look. Street markets, enough handbags to feed India for a week, shoe stores and lingerie stores lining every block. That’s Milan.
The first thing I noticed about Milan is that the women were beautiful. Italian women all seem to be blessed with voluminous hair, curves, legs that go for miles, and little to no excess fat. Even the middle-aged and elderly women were chic, stylish, and strong. How they manage to retain such figures despite a diet consisting entirely of carbs is a mystery to me.
They took me to the famous Milanese Duomo and to see the equally famous, outrageously expensive Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
The happy hour, Italian style. Italians know how to do it right—you order a drink for somewhere between €7 to €9, and the food is free.
That’s right, the food is free.
A buffet full of Italian food, as much as you can possibly eat, for free! And the menu keeps changing throughout the night so you’re never tired of eating the same thing. Incredible. If only they had deals like that in America.
We climbed the 265 steps (I counted, in Italian of course) up to the top of the cathedral. The view was stunning—both of the cathedral itself and of the city below.
Before my visit I’d heard many warnings that Milan isn’t beautiful, that people are often disappointed when they got there. I once heard an Italian say outright, “Milan is a stink hole. Don’t go.” But I beg to differ. I loved Milan. I loved how urban, how real it was.
You can count me in for a move to Milan."

the Italian guy talking shit must've been a jealous one from Rome...
love it when they talk about my city, quite emotional

“What is the fatal charm of Italy? What do we find there that can be found nowhere else? I believe it is a certain permission to be human, which other places, other countries, lost long ago.”
(Erica Jong)

"How do people in Italy stay so skinny?!? I have yet to see a single overweight person in all of Italy.
You have apertivos (a pre-drink with food), then followed by real dinner (first course pasta, second course meat), and then dessert. And all that cheese. And did I mention gelato?
No one really exercises that much either.
It makes no sense."

answer: SEX (lol)

.........................
"I was feeling very well @ Milan, I was feeling at home. Usually one does not come back to old things but I'd like to come back to Milan. It's fantastic. If they need help (YES THEY NEED............), they know where I am".
(Zlatan Ibrahimovic, now @ Paris Saint Germain, speaking in Sweden)
......................... this means either he wants more money in Paris, or the family doesn't like Paris (he probably doesn't like french football) and his wife was robbed by a french thief.

"a couple of gigs in my spiritual home of Italy is enough to perk anybody up and true to form the gigs had enough healing properties to raise t
he dead, let alone give a tired man a lift!! They were unbelievable nights. 2 of the very best.
What is it with you Italians? Why do you seem to "get it" more than anyone else? It's a constant source of fascination for me. On the other hand it also means one spends most of the time trapped in hotels as you can't leave for fear of being kidnapped or trampled to death or kissed to within an inch of your life (these are not complaints . . . just observations!). These people sing their own versions of songs in between the songs they've paid to see you sing!! They sang for Mancini! They sang for Mario Balotelli! They sang very nearly every Oasis song imaginable! The girls flashed there upper regions! They laughed and then they cried and then they surrounded the hotel thus ensuring that there could be no conceivable way to enter it without all the aforementioned things taking place again!
ITALY? WHY ALWAYS YOU??"
(Noel Gallagher, the arse licker)



spring summer 2013, settimana della moda donna, primavera estate.
short video summarizing the little things, we've done nothing great but it's been nice and quite emotional. I've seen around people who would've done everything to be @ fashion week... as Beckham said: people would pay for staying in Milano, lol. Yeah... paying can be a problem in Milan (I've just heard foreign people saying things like: oh my God it's all so beautiful but so expensive... well, it's quality).
sorry for repeating the song Lucyella, I love it too much :)
at the end: my bed, lol

new upcoming designers

Laetitia Casta in Milan for Dolce & Gabbana, @ La Rinascente and @ another new boutique in corso venezia 


as to paraphrase what I was saying the other day about Milan, "empty full city", today they put this song (Città vuota, empty city) the whole time, so we had to listen continuously while waiting for Laetitia. 
Mina is from near Milan, a sort of "holy figure", especially now that she's not showing herself in public. 
This is for pasta Barilla, lol

90th anniversary for the old circuit (1922-2012)


MONZA - Ragazze-hostess @ Monza. 
Jenson Button on Monza: 
"I head to Monza absolutely full of motivation after a fantastic result in Spa. It was the perfect weekend for me – it’s not only put me back in contention for the drivers’ championship, but it’s shown that we have a car that can definitely fight for the constructors’ title. 
It’ll be great to be back in the car so soon after the victory. Monza is one of the greatest circuits in the world and our car seems to be particularly well suited to high-speed circuits, so I’m optimistic that we’ll be competitive again this weekend. 
For some reason, the car we’ve brought to Monza in the last two seasons has been really well suited to me. I’ve really been able to work with the balance and enjoyed pushing the car. The success we had with a low-downforce configuration at Spa also gives us cause for optimism.
I’ve finished second here in both my previous races for Vodafone McLaren Mercedes (+in 2009 with Brawn) – I’ll definitely be going for the win this weekend.”

Monza is one of the most iconic racetracks in the world. Built in 1922 (90th anniversary this year) in a royal park north of Milan, the circuit is an eclectic mix of old and new: the crumbling banking that formed part of the original layout still lies adjacent to the modern racetrack, which is the fastest of the 2012 season.
The vociferous Italian fans, known colloquially as the Tifosi, are sure to give every team a lot of support during this, the last European race of the 2012 season. Neither Lewis nor Jenson has previously won at Monza, although Jenson has finished second in each of the past three races at the track.

Interview with "Britalian" Sergio Pizzorno.
Ahead of Kasabian’s gig in Milano tonight (Ippodromo), Sergio tells us a bit about his Italian side and his relationship with Italy.
"My Granddad was from Genoa, he came over to England in the 60s. So, growing up, it started with football really. I always supported Italy, through all the World Cups. I always had a blue shirt rather than a white shirt.
Because my granddad died when I was very young, to keep the Italian thread in the family going, I think my dad went out of his way to make sure I knew where my family was from.
We used to spend every summer in Italy in Abisola or Alassio which is on the Riviera. We’d drive in a battered old Austin Allegro. It used to take us three or four days. I spent every summer there. I grew up on pasta and pizza.
My dad was a musical influence on me, but It’s only now I realise it. He was into Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker and Howling Wolf - real blues players - and the Stones, but he couldn’t play anything. He had a guitar with no strings on it, which he used to pretend to play, so I would pick it up and do the same. Pretending just like he did.
As far as Italian songs go, there was something I always remember a song called La chate mi cantare *, a real old bad Italian song. There was also one called Gloria - I swear Pulp nicked the riff for Disco 2000. I suppose Zucchero was played. That’s kind of the vibe that was going on in the house.
It’s funny because Italian fans have really taken us to their hearts, it’s almost like playing a home town show. The support is just huge. It’s heart warming, especially for me.

I don’t know enough Italian, I’m lazy and I do apologise. I understand a great deal, but speaking it, I’m terrible. And especially when you’re on stage, you don’t want to start throwing out words that you’re not particularly comfortable with. I’m a shy person, if I’m rocking out some Italian, I need to know I’m getting it right.

I suppose Italy is just so very different to back home. It’s the whole culture, I feel like I slot right in because it’s just very relaxed. The food is incredible, but it is the people who make it.

It’s obviously aesthetically beautiful, you’ve got ancient monuments and you can walk round them and they’re beautiful, but for me, it’s the actual people who live here. There seems to be a really good family spirit. The computer generation doesn’t seem to have changed that. There is still a beautiful family vibe.

And all the people I’ve met along the way have been so nice, the fans especially. Even when they’re just asking for an autograph it’s very polite. And they’re very aware that if you’re with your family to just leave you alone."

* La chate mi cantare is not French and it's "Lasciatemi cantare" (let me sing) "L'italiano" (1983) by Toto Cutugno, sort of "national anthem". Also, Sergio is not Serge in a French way...
Gloria was by Umberto Tozzi

videos soon (they also played an unplugged @ Fnac)

ciao
nostalgia of the eighties, we were happier when we had a few things...
times when everybody wanted to come to Italy...
now it's all about money and sheikhs can buy everyone...
I'm not a fan of Vasco Rossi, but if you're learning Italian, these are good songs. He got married recently - about time :)
This is song says that I'm not like you and I can stay without you, bye.
ciao Zlatan Ibra, ciao Thiago Silva (...), modern bitches, lol. We love Milan and stay anyhow anyway.

..... Italian accent :), his girlfriend studied in Milan and he's got friends from here. I drove some cars on this circuit, know every corner as my pockets since I was a child. ..... 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

..... song of the summer 2010 in Italy. It says "amiamo l'Inghilterra... crediamo nell'eternità", we love England, we believe in eternity.

the city of Milano&England have the same flag. Ladies&gentlemen, AC Milan, best club in history, was founded by a group of English&Italians. Milan was appointed as the 1.city of world fashion.
..... 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 :)
