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.
