FRIDA KOLTRE A HIL LM ITOO Artist Frida Kahlo was considered one of Mexico’s greatest artists who began painting mostly self-portraits after she was severely injured in a bus accident. Kahlo later became politically active and married fellow communist artist Diego Rivera in 1929. She exhibited her paintings in Paris and Mexico before her death in 1954. Frida Kahlo. Oltre il mito is the first italian exhibition about the artist. There are all the artist’s masterpieces from Museo Dolores Olmedo of Mexico City and from Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection: the most famous art masterpieces of Frida Kahlo’s collections. The exhibition is curated from Diego Sileo, and it’s composed from four different sections: DONNA, TERRA, POLITICA, DOLORE.

Palazzo Reale has ancient origins and its history is interwoven with that of Milan and of the families who governed the city. From the Sforza dynasty to Napoleon and from the plague to the bombardments, countless persons and major events have shaped both the structure and the functions of the Palazzo; it is a reflection of the influential powers that alternated in the city government and which changed the appearance of the edifice over the centuries, until it became the prestigious location for major art exhibitions in Milan that we know today. To peruse the history of Palazzo Reale is akin to examining the changes that have influenced one of the most important cities in Italy and its people.

GREEN HARMONIES The Museo del Paesaggio in Verbania opens its spring exhibition season with an enchanting art show dedicated to the landscape.
After its reopening in 2016 with the great exhibition dedicated to Paolo Troubetzkoy, permanently set up on the ground floor, and the beautiful exhibition I volti e il cuore in 2017, the Museo del Paesaggio in Verbania opens its spring exhibition season with an enchanting art show dedicated to the landscape, ARMONIE VERDI. Paesaggi dalla Scapigliatura al Novecento (GREEN HARMONIES. Landscapes from the Scapigliatura to the twentieth century). An evocative and fascinating journey among art masterpieces of the late 19th century to the first half of the 20th century, along scenarios of great poetry, beauty and colors, to investigate the relationship between man and nature. The overview of the selected works attests the variations in the interpretation of the landscape, from the centrality that this theme occupies in the late 19th century painting, to the volumetric interpretation of the Twenties, when the landscape is constructed as an architecture and suggests a sense of solidity and duration, up to the new sense of precariousness expressed since the Thirties. The exhibition can also count on two prestigious groups of works: The lake, 1926 by Sironi, and an important series of landscapes by Tosi. 22 | April - May 2018

MAST GALLERY MAST FOUNDATION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY GRANT 2018 ON INDUSTRY AND WORK 24 | April - May 2018
The MAST Foundation for Photography Grant is now running for the fifth time. Over the course of its first four editions, it took place as GD4PhotoArt and now it is presented under its new name for the first time. At each edition, around 40 photographers are nominated by international experts. A jury then selects the four most convincing projects from among the candidates. The four chosen photographers subsequently have six months to complete their respective projects which are finally exhibited in the MAST PhotoGallery. Through this competition, MAST supports young photographers and artists who are engaging with the topics of industry, technology, territory and work. We see again and again how little we know about invention, research, production, marketing, and sale of machines and products, how little the images from these fields are different. The strides of technology and the financial economy have turned our world into an abstract. Thus the visualisations of this world become ever more important. Only by means of images are we capable of following the new paths, the new developments in research and in production. Mari Bastashevsky, Sarah Cwynar, Sohei Nishino and Cristรณbal Olivares are the four young photographers, selected from a list of 35 candidates from all over the world, who have developed original and neverbeforepublished projects for the MAST Foundation. On 31st January, during the press conference of the exhibithion, the jury has decided to award the prize ex-aequo to Sohei Nishino and Sara Cwynar.

The city of Milan will pay homage to Lombard and Milanese culture with the exhibition “L’eredità nell’immagine dipinta”, placing the painting of Giancarlo Cerri and his son, Giovanni, face to face in a fascinating comparison. The exhibition, which will run from 10 to 27 May 2018 at the Centro Culturale di Milano, just a short walk from Piazza Duomo, has been realized in collaboration with Studio LTA Milan and born from Giovanni Cerri’s and Stefano De Angelis’s idea, highlights two different, but equally intense, methods of approaching the

CLAUDIO PTHEITATOO T TAARTISTN Claudio Pittan
32 | April - May 2018
WONDER A tattoo artist is someone who creates permanent images or words on the skin. Tattooing is one of the oldest art forms known to man; in ancient times tattoos were not only applied for decoration, but for religious significance or as a status symbol. We met Claudio Pittan one of the best italian tatoo artist. When did your tatoo business start? Where did your passion for tatoos come from? I was a young punk rocker from the Eighties and I loved to attend concerts in Berlin, Amsterdam and London. The coolest bands had tattoos. They were the first quality tattoos Iâ€™ve ever seen. My passion for art made me try to tattoo my friends. After the first efforts I got the right equipment and my career took off immediately. You have traveled a lot and met many different cultures. What was your most signifcant journey? I have been in USA, Mexico, Brazil and all around Europe. In Asia I felt welcome: beyond language barriers I found kindness and quietness that made me feel at ease. I specially love Japan, where I lived for two months, a modern country where tradition is still relevant. Discovering Japanese art was like exploring a new beautiful land.

MARCO ALBERTI and ALESSANDRA FERRANDU WHEN ART BECOMES UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE In 2001 the painter Alessandra Ferrandu (Massa , 2/01/1979) together with the painter and sculptor Marco Alberti (Massa, 15/01/ 1974) have started the Project “Case Carpano + Rubbia”, using as house-studio the deserted premises of a former marble quarry situated in Massa Carrara (Tuscany , Italy). They partecipated to many exhibitions in Italy and France, and thanks for their manager Dario Fochi, the two artists have exhibited their works at The Museum Hall of Boscolo Hotel in Milan. This exhibition, entitled “alla tua Eco” (“to your Echo” ), has been shot and transmitted by World Fashion Channel all over the world. Their works have received the approval of artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Lina Wertmuller, Antonello Venditti, Roberta Armani and the businessman Massimo Moratti. The painter Alessandra Ferrandu has dedicated a wonderful portrait to Roberta Armani. The works have been exhibited at Palazzo Pirelli , in Milan, in the offices of the high finance company Permira and today, one of this work is in the private collection of the Emir of Qatar. On the centenary of the “Giro d’Italia” , Marco created the trophy entitled “cima Coppi” this trophy was won by the Spanish cyclist Mikel Landa.

WONDER Alessandra Ferrandu:
something more about the artist
Her natural and relaxed rythms allow her to acquire a more in depth knowledge of the classical myths and literature. It is the female figure in particular, which strikes her imagination and the artist recreates and remodels the female figure in contemporary key, so that the mythological figure takes a modern form and particular features. Her pictorial growth passes from a period of obsessive reserch of the particular to a period in which there is the research of the stylization of faces and bodies.
something more about the artist
The artist Marco Alberti is deeply linked to the territory and this link gets stronger and stronger over time : marble, labour and ancient trades bind him to the social and cultural foundation of the place. His art flows like the water of a river, in particular the “River Frigido”, which has seen him being born. In the course of time , his relationship with the water increases more and more, and gets an important element of his sculptural and pictorial production.

THE HIGHLIGHT: the Biosauna-Tram The first biosauna in the world realized inside a tram!
Be it winter or summer time, the important thing is to go out of this peaceful sanctuary feeling completely renvigorated and reborned. The tram is there to help you reach your goal since it has been converted into a biosauna. It’s the first biosauna in the world realized inside a tram. This vehicle of the ATM (Milan Transport Company) – a real historical tram of Milan- parked in the grass brings you, on the side of a moment of wellness, also some laughs at the thought that you are sitting in a tram with steamy windows in your bathing suit! And after the 70°C degrees you breathe inside of it, you can immerse in the reaction tub at 15°C degrees and then, why not, enjoy a massage in the shade of the gazebo.

THE HIGHLIGHT: Beautiful and good The palate need to be satisfied just as much as the spirit!
The Termemilanoâ€™s wellness philosophy is inspired by the belief that the palate needs to be satisfied just as much as the spirit. The menu offers both wellness and taste, where everything can be eaten, in the right proportions, without sacrificing the joy of flavour. Because the lightness you seek comes from within.

2 hours 43 minutes intermission included
NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE Absent from La Scala since 1959, when Gianandrea Gavazzeni directed Magda Olivero and Mario del Monaco in the lead roles, D’Annunzio’s enthralling tale of passion and jealousy – written as a tribute to Dante and put to music by Zandonai –, comes back to life in a new production by David Pountney. On the podium, Fabio Luisi, a staunch fan of this distinctive score, ably draws out both its aspects of Verismo and the refinement of the twentieth century. In the lead roles we find Maria José Siri, acclaimed at the 2016 inauguration of Madama Butterfly, Roberto Aronica, who returns to La Scala after his successful role in the Fanciulla del West, and Gabriele Viviani.

LE CORSAIRE – PRIMA DELLE PRIME (free entrance) 18th April 2018
Sergio Trombetta “Amore e avventure secondo Petipa” (with videos) NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE “Prima delle Prime” is La Scala’s cycle of public talks. Offered as a means of introducing and preparing audiences for playbill performances, talks are held several days before the first performance of ballets or operas in the Arturo Toscanini foyer, and feature discussions with field experts about the works in question, providing a great opportunity to find out more about lesser-known works and examine the most famous in greater detail. The “Prima delle Prime” cycle is organised and made possible by the Amici della Scala (“Friends of La Scala”), a not-forprofit association that supports La Scala’s fringe activities. Under the banner of the “Prima delle Prime” series, the La Scala Ballet also organises conferences, with video screenings, to introduce the season’s ballets. These talks are also held in the Arturo Toscanini foyer, with the same start time and the same conditions of entry. No tickets are required to access the Arturo Toscanini foyer: members of the audience are simply requested to present themselves at the theatre’s main entrance in good time. For health and safety reasons, numbers are limited to 150 attendees and entry is regulated by ushers. “A.

108 | April - May 2018
ENJOY YOUR NIGHT Silvia Amoni, Alberto Gugliada and Lorenzo Viola are joined by a strong bond of friendship and a great love of wine, and have come up with a project that goes beyond the bounds of the usual places where wine is served and sold: an unusual wine room with multiple identities for an all-round wine experience. Bicerìn Milano’s interior design reveals its eclectic approach to wine. Different identities share a single space: a lounge area furnished with coffee tables, original armchairs and unique items designed by architect Lorenzo Viola to recreate the atmosphere of relaxation and conviviality of a Paris salon of the ’forties, where guests can enjoy a glass of wine with dishes from the Bicerìn Milano kitchen; a dining room with a long table for special events and private dinners, offering an exclusive, customised experience centring around wine; and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves containing a true “wine library” of more than 800 different labels selected with great care.

fLY IN STYLE WITH GLOBEAIR A new way of travelling in Europe: the nÂ°1 Air Taxi service Todayâ€™s world is far smaller than it was just a few years ago. However, even if the options to travel to new locations has opened up tremendously in the last few decades, chartering an executive jet seems something totally inaccessible for most people. Imagine no longer having to queue to go through airport security, but instead simply hopping into your own private jet and flying off to your desired destination according to your own agenda. This option has just become more affordable thanks to GlobeAir. Founded in Austria in 2007, GlobeAir takes pride in being the first mover in the Air Taxi sector in Europe, and among the fastest growing private jet charter operators.

with the most different stylistic figures, often with classifying hints of modalities and subjects, which repeat themselves and fuse together, blending, multiplying and aggregating. As you can read on the official exhibition’s catalogue edited by Federico Sardella. The Indian ink on paper dated 1965, is one of the artist’s earliest work and the show continues with an in-depth study dedicated to one of Boetti’s favourite themes: nature revisited and the animal kingdom. From the 1970s onward, this theme occupied a significant part of the artist’s attention: monkeys, panthers, dolphins, frogs, mountain goats, turtles and other creatures of the animal world, they are reborn, and are decorative elements that can be repeated without limitations. The 1979 Zoo installation, illustrates this theme. Developed by Alighiero Boetti with his children Agata and Matteo, “Zoo” has been installed only once, in the artist’s studio in Rome. It has often been published but never repurposed until today. It was documented at time in Giorgio Colombo’s photographs, and the installation consists in the assembly of animals that took several months to construct, now revived and adapted to the gallery’s space. We can sit on an Afghan rug to observe, as the original project, the same plastic subjects used by Alighiero Boetti and his children. The artist himself wrote: “These animals carry within them the memory of millions of their predecessors and remember time. An ancient time: slow, anonymous, identical, immobile, unchanged”.

On the occasion of director Franco Zeffirelli’s 95th birthday, the legendary 1963 version of ‘Aida’ returns to La Scala, with the impressive scenery painted by Lila de Nobili in which Egypt is redesigned in Second Empire style.
The story of Harlequin, servant to two masters, as Giorgio Strehler said, is “living memory”. Like an unstoppable river in full flow, the show - with Ferruccio Soleri and Enrico Bonavera in the title role - brings magic to the stage every evening. Because “Harlequin is always the same and always different”, wrote the maestro, and is “unaffected by the passing of time”.
