more to add soon

well of course they've already been other times. This time when Ulyana Sergeenko (from Russia) arrived (see video in the next post) for the Milano fashion week @ Roberto Cavalli, all the people went around her and she looked like a spooky figure, like a crow, because she was above everyone, as on a tree. 
And as I was posting about Dracula and Smashing Pumpkins, I thought about this image: 

from USA, Lindsey Wixson-Jessica Rabbit, for Emilio Pucci. 
Oasis fringe hairstyle and Oasis hat :) 
(from "It's getting better man!! - Milan!!" :)
Daphne Groeneveld and Cara Delevingne had it too and said "don't fuck with my fringe!" lol

no I don't mean the communists-democrats making you pay more taxes (elections days in Italy). But to the exhibition in Milano @ Triennale, until 24 March.

Daphne Groeneveld from Holland, @ Milan fashion week. 

Smashing Pumpkins, Daphne descends

A few days to Milan woman fashion week (settimana della moda donna). Not only meeting celebrities, etc. (work for us paparazzi, lol) the main thing is catwalks of course, but the great majority of people have never seen them “live” in person, because you should be a journalist or someone working there.
If you want to come and see some catwalk, let me know marco@miamilan.com
It’s very exciting, because it’s something you always see on magazines and tv, it’s comparable to children for the first time entering the legendary San Siro stadium :), a big emotion really.
AC Milan Fly Emirates teamed up with EasyJet, the best low cost company.
The symbol of Milano is a woman… (Madonnina golden statue too :), protecting us from above).
It’s the best fashion week not only because it’s the world capital of fashion but also because, compared to London, Paris and New York, in Milan the weather and food are oh so much better ;)

model for Dolce & Gabbana, Magdalena Frackowiak from Poland, feels alone

Bianca Balti from near Milano, about being an Italian mamma:
“I don’t have much social life anymore”…thank God, lol

“The more you have inside yourself, the less you need of other people. That’s why superiority of spirit makes you rather unsociable. The level of sociability is in inverse proportion to the intellectual value.
Sociability is the act for which the men warm to each other the spirit, just as, when it’s cold, you warm up each other’s body hugging each other. The more spiritual heat you have, the less you need of sociability: it therefore tends to increase when the spirit is reduced.”

it takes some time to understand life in Milan. It’s very selective. At first you may dislike it, but with time you appreciate it.
video about Milan and its solitude
she says things as: “Milano teaches you to be alone. An acrobat of melancholy. So true simple words. Everyone absorbed in their thoughts and the beauty of the place. Being alone becomes an art in Milano. There is you and the others: you can also meet them, but someday the noise of the people will annoy you. Then you carry your “luggage” on your own. If you accept this, Milano doesn’t “eat” you, it makes you grow. You won’t need anything anymore, without any need you’ll feel really free.. you, owner, master of your city”.

some music for "San Valentino" :), see also previous posts with Ornella Vanoni songs, Le Vibrazioni, etc.

"Un romantico a Milano" (A romantic in Milan, by Baustelle)
gig during the fashion week soon, symphonic songs with orchestra, new album recorded in Poland.
Good songs if you're learning the Italian language.


che ne dici di un romantico a Milano? 

fra i Manzoni preferisco quello vero: Piero 
c'è un maniaco sul Corriere della Sera
la sua mano per la zingara di Brera 
è nera 
fuggi, cosa fuggi non c'è modo di scappare 
ho la febbre ma ti porto fuori a bere 
non è niente stai tranquilla è solo il cuore 
Porta Ticinese piove ma c'è il sole 
quando il dandy muore fuori nasce un fiore 
le ragazze fan la fila per vedere 
la sua tomba con su scritte le parole 
"io vi amo 
vi amo ma vi odio però 
vi amo tutti 
è bello è brutto, io non lo so 
io vi amo 
vi amo ma vi odio però 
vi amo tutti 
è bello è brutto è solo questo" 
che ne pensa di un romantico alla Scala? 
quando canta le canzoni della mala scola 
quasi centomila Montenegro e Bloody Mary 
mocassini gialli e sentimenti chiaro-scuri

CARA [ Cara Delevingne LOL (soon in Milan), her name means "dear", "honey"]

scriverà sulle tovaglie dei Navigli 

quanta gioia, quanti giorni, quanti sbagli 

quanto freddo nei polmoni 
che dolore 
non è niente non è niente 
lascia stare 
se la Madonnina muore nasce un fiore 
lui non vuole che la sua ragazza legga 
quelle frasi incise quelle frasi amare 
"io vi amo 
vi amo ma vi odio però 
vi amo tutti 
è bello è brutto, io non lo so 
io vi amo 
vi amo ma vi odio però 
vi amo tutti 
è bello è brutto è un giglio marcio 
io vi amo 
vi amo ma vi sputo però 
vi amo tutti 
è bello è brutto è solo questo"
L'erba ti fa male se la fumi senza stile

- first of all: gelato italiano :) ice cream. Cakes, pastries, Nutella :), Italian espresso coffee, they’re all special here, even if I’m not a big fan, I prefer salty dishes.
- Italian sausages, lol.
- see a previous post about a Zani recipe to make “risotto” (rice dish) with mushrooms.
also Beckham learnt to cook risotto when he was here. He always says he misses Milan a lot. The typical Milanese one is yellow, with saffron (and sausage and onion - do not use onions in case of girls around, lol… better for your breath. Girls OR onions ^_^ - usually I have onions LOL). As the name says, risotto does not come from France (as the mayonnaise - it comes from my paradise island Minorca, name from the capital Mahon -> mahonesa).
- “cotoletta alla milanese” is also typical (cutlet, does not come from Austria).
Then there are other typical Milanese dishes but they are for old people, lol.
- one place you should go to buy great quality food is Excelsior (behind Duomo cathedral), it’s more than a supermarket, it becomes a fashionable activity. Or also the top floor of La Rinascente.
You’ll probably find Italian food expensive, but it’s quality.
- pasta, spaghetti, heart-shaped pizzas, etc.
There’s some place where you can have the “all you can eat” formula, pizzas or so many different kinds of pasta. You can even eat on a tram (Milano trams are even in California) while you’re going around the city.
One of my grandmothers was a cook in the hotel of my family in Sun Valley.
- cheese is great, Grana Padano, Gorgonzola (Liam Gallagher is a big fan) it’s the one that stinks lol, etc.
- to drink: Italian wine,appointed as the best in the world. My father makes it in the countryside (Sting too :)
- then I should add: gnocchi (gnocca = beautiful girl, lol), Milano panettone (a Christmas cake), etc. panzerotti Luini is a classic, eating along the street, beside the main Milan cinema, Odeon.
- But we also like foreign food. We often go to Santa Monica, our favourite American restaurant behind the cathedral (also Mexican), Kapuziner Platz (German), we prefer the one along Navigli channels, magic atmosphere. Not a big fan of Chinese or Japanese.
I love spicy food, I always add chilli or pepper.
I love tomato, I think I’m the only one even DRINKING tomato, even raw tomato. It’s also very good for your health, so: drink tomato, lol.
As Italian food is no doubt the best one in the world, food is also the theme of Milano Expo 2015, food for everyone.
the Spice Boy, lol

“Eating and cooking is a big part of the culture which I love love love love!!! I can’t wait to cook with them. Italians eat a lot of carbs and cheese but still manage to stay so skinny! Reason: walking A LOT, smaller portions and clean, natural food”
(American girl ;)

Carnival, this and next week.
The traditional "Carnevale ambrosiano" in Milan, with some things reminding of the Brazilian Carnival.

Meneghino is the main Milanese Carnival character (meneghino, like milanese and ambrosiano, now means = of Milano), other cities have other characters (Pulcinella in Naples, Harlequin and Brighella in Bergamo, etc.).
The name comes from the surname of the servant going with noblewomen for a walk, or to the church.
He is a bit rough but a good, generous person and mostly characterized by honesty, sincerity and a strong sense of justice. To defend his people, he doesn’t run away. He is funny and able to mock aristocratic people. He became a hero, a symbol of the Italian unification.
He is usually represented as wearing these clothes, a cocked three-cornered hat, a pony-tailed wig, red-white striped stockings and an umbrella.
Meneghino’s sincerity is also symbolized by the fact that, unlike most “commedia dell’arte” theatre characters, he doesn’t wear a mask, nor make-up. This makes of him a free character.

The typical Italian sweet treats for Carnival are the “chiacchiere” (= that also means “blah blah”, lol), with powdered sugar… and if you want also Nutella ;P

Noel Gallagher's idol ("only a rich politician is a good politician, 'cause he's already rich") and he was in one of Berlusconi's films. 
0:23 Federica Zanella, 0:30 red-head Vittoria Brambilla with a sweet dog adopted by Silvio, 2:25 Italian anthem "fratelli d'Italia" (brothers of Italy), 21:30 Berlusconi song Presidente siamo con te, meno male che Silvio c'èèèèè ghghghghgh (we are with you President, thank God there is you LOL) 
Big news was: he said that if he wins, he's giving back the money the people had to pay for a recent tax on the houses, that the rival Monti made pay, and remove it.

Mario Balotelli scored 2 goals at his debut, AC Milan-Udinese 2-1, he dominated and could score 4 and was Man-of-the-Match

..... 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!

(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!

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 :)
