BRAZIL. Knife in the Flesh With the exhibition BRAZIL. Knife in the Flesh, PAC in Milan continues to explore continents by means of contemporary art, introducing a selection of 30 Brazilian artists spanning several generations, active from the Seventies onwards. ‘Knife in the Flesh’ (Navalha na Carne) is the title of a play by Brazilian writer Plínio Marcos, particularly active during the years of the Brazilian military regime. Thus, from its very title, the exhibition declares itself to be in conflict. By means of installations, photographs,

videos

and

performances,

several of the artists invited to the PAC make reference to this conflict – which has no beginning, much less an end, is hard to sum up in words and rarely translates into physical fights or battles. A social – and above all symbolic – conflict, then, rather than a

without, however, setting out to draw a portrait of the country or its artistic scene, reflecting instead on their inherent conflict: the fights and violence, the political, social, racial, ecological and cultural abuse. A direct language that appears naïve, whilst actually pregnant with meaning as it tells of broken dreams and disappointed hopes, but also of a people capable of keeping their incredible optimism and trust in the future. 20 | August - September 2018

WONDER The first time I saw my house was on a late summer afternoon. The long shadows underscored the geometry of the staircases, the arches of the porticoes were a play of light and darkness. The gate with its bishop’s emblem imprisoned the garden behind grey bars. It was a magical place. My husband, as if trying to make excuses for this excessive majesty, explained: “Lots of people spend a fortune keeping a boat. I wanted to save a Venetian villa.” In the Veneto Region, an association was formed in the early sixties, with the aim of saving the villas that were falling into ruin due to neglect. No one wanted to look after these huge homes anymore. They were too costly and often difficult to adapt to modern needs. People wanted more exotic destinations for their holidays. The new generations could not afford to renovate and the upkeep was too high, and so fountains, charming Italian-style gardens, haylofts and orchards all lay in ruins. It was this spirit that made my husband purchased this, the erstwhile summer residence of the Pisani bishops in the first-half of the sixteenth century, from the Bishop of Padua. It had not been used for years. After a period in which it had been used as a summer camp for children, it was closed permanently. There was a farmer who lived in the orchard and tended the vineyards and the grounds around the retaining wall. We dedicated time and money to this building, certain that it was for a good cause: “preserving beauty”. The choice of the FAI is the logical extension of the original decision. It is a great relief for me to know that this house, which expresses a rigorous way of living, where needs are more intellectual than material, will become part of the FAI and that dedicated professionals will continue its restoration and protect the surrounding area, which constitutes its natural setting.

LEONARDO DA VINCI PARADE The temporary exhibition Leonardo Da Vinci Parade - curated and developed by the Museum - comprises a large selection of fascinating models built in the 1950s through the interpretation of Da Vinci’s drawings and a selection of 16th century frescoes by Lombard artists, granted for storage in 1952 by the Pinacoteca di Brera, directed at that time by Fernanda Wittgens. The Museum celebrates its origins by evocatively exhibiting side by side the two collections with which it inaugurated on February 15th, 1953. Recently restored plaster and terracotta models of military and civil architectures – many of which have not been on display for years – are exhibited next to the machine models. The setup of the torn frescoes from Brera on the surrounding walls evokes the racks of a museum storage, creating an evocative sequence where the paintings are shown according to their place of origin, such as churches or no-longer-existing buildings in Milan. Among the painters, Bernardino Luini and his school play a pivotal role, as one of the most successful workshops in early 16th century Lombardy. The exhibition unusually combines art and science in an fascinating show which accounts for Da Vinci’s numerous interests and studies, through the Museum’s worldwide renowned collection of historical models. Leonardo Da Vinci Parade is the first initiative – both at national and international level – presented for the celebrations of the 500 years from Leonardo da Vinci’s death (1519-2019) in the frame of the “Milan and the inheritance of Leonardo, 1519-2019” agenda, presented by the Comune di Milano. The exhibition was created by the Museum in cooperation with the Pinacoteca di Brera and with the support of Fondazione Cariplo.

The contamination of styles and languages, the crossing of borders between fashion, design and art industries underlie the brand strategy which aims at redesigning the “tailor-made” concept. Indeed, starting from the iconic and traditional elements of a brand with its products, Garage Italia designers are able to offer a new perspective, redrawing its essence and giving life to original creative propositions. Lapo Elkann aimed at gathering under the same roof the Italian excellences in the industries of creativity, design, motion and food. Keeping things special and privileged with the Automotive field proved by several one-off models created for customers and brands such as Pagani and BMW -, Garage Italia would like to spread the concept of “tailor-made” to all the items that mark out daily life of every individual, involving design and furniture industries too and - generally speaking the lifestyle field, therefore giving the chance to own very original limited editions.

It is made of wood with steel inserts; 35m long, there are 22 Formula 1 mini models, including two Ferraris purposefully positioned near the finishing line. Along the perimeter of the room there are benches, tables and chairs especially designed for the restaurant and made by Cassina Contract. Fifty 298 chairs, De Lucchi design for Cassina, were chosen for the decor and customised with racing graphics. Nine Ferrari Daytona and two Ferrari 599 seats are now armchairs and, finally, the sofa was created in honour of Gianni Agnelli’s epic Ferrari, upholstered in two coloured Frau leather with USB ports “hidden” in the armrests. Large windows let the light in from the sides that look out onto the wings of the building. The large terrace is surrounded by tropical vegetation that appears to grow into the leafy branches of the trees in viale Certosa. On the extremity of the terrace that looks out towards Milan, there is a small space, the “Riva Privèe” which is available only upon booking.

The beauty of finding beauty in every situation, every object, every story, this is where Maja went further from only external beauty. In her aesthetical expression through her MAYA MILANO jewellery line she is showing how elements that might not be merged, actually if only perceived broader can become a harmonious match, just like the nature is showing us. Rigid large cuffs, matched with romantic earrings with hundreds of tiny precious stones, this is MAYA MILANO signature. We were curious about how Maja created MAYA MILANO. After her psychology studies in Serbia she is leaving her roots to pass 22 years of globetrotting life between New York, Lausanne, Warsaw and Milan, mixed with the best academic educational degrees in Business School Lausanne in Switzerland, Master degree in Design and Fashion Management at Bocconi, and additional specialized goldsmith courses in Scuola Ambrosiana Orafa Milanese, she reached a unique and eclectic esthetical expression that she talks through her precious objects of beauty.

KIEHL’S AN EXCELLENCE SINCE1851 Kiehl’s was founded as an old-world apothecary in New York’s East Village neighborhood over 150 years ago. Its unique and extensive background represents a blend of cosmetic, pharmaceutical, herbal, and medicinal knowledge developed through the generations. In the early decades of the 20th century, Kiehl’s was a full-service pharmacy, offering its customers homeopathic and herbal remedies, essential oils, over the-counter drugs, and the first Kiehl’s brand products. In the early 1960’s, Kiehl’s pharmacists continued to develop the Kiehl’s product range, utilizing expertise gained from their experience in pharmaceutical manufacturing and chemistry. Today, Kiehl’s is dedicated to serving its customers a quality product through its extensive line of skin and hair care formulations.

52 | August - September 2018


BEAUTY&WELLNESS

The people who comprise the extended family of Kiehl’s are committed to upholding these standards of excellence and quality, espoused and preserved over the years. Kiehl’s Customer Representatives—whose first priority is to serve and represent Kiehl’s customers—undergo an intensive education program in which they learn the value of formula ingredients and their efficacy. In addition to this unique commitment to a quality product, Customer Representatives gain the know-how to provide the unparalleled customer service that the company is known for. With Kiehl’s early traditions in dispensing advice on prescriptions to its customers, its staff today continues to “prescribe” a personal care regimen that is most appropriate for the individual’s skin, hair and body care needs. Over the years, the many passions and interests of Kiehl’s extended family have become part of the visual and emotional fabric of the company. The Kiehl’s experience supports an active, healthy lifestyle; aviation, alpine ski racing, and equestrian expertise are all part of the Kiehl’s heritage and legacy. Perhaps one of the most recognizable of these thematic elements reflects Kiehl’s traditions in motorcycling, with the company’s collection of vintage motorcycles on display in Kiehl’s freestanding stores around the globe for patrons to enjoy. Simple, no-frills packaging and a policy of not advertising allow the company to formulate its products with high quantities of the most efficacious ingredients available. In addition, the company has gained a reputation for generous sampling, with a “try before you buy” philosophy that has built a loyal fan base the world over through the word-of-mouth recommendations of its cherished customers.

practice and expertise in the beauty field. In Italy Heylash is now a point of reference in the world of eyelash and eyebrow treatments and its aim is to enhance the beauty of the female gaze, regardless of age, ethnicity and the individual characteristics of each woman. According to Heylash, in fact, beauty has neither time nor boundaries. “Our treatments” explains Sonia, “aim to value every type of beauty, taking care of those features which make a visage unique: eyelashes and eyebrows”. “Our Lash Makers, or better, Lash Artists”, adds Andrea, “study carefully the shape of the face and the eyes, realizing tailored treatments for each woman, both combining curving, thickness and length for the perfect extension result both giving the right outline to eyebrows through permanent and semi-permanent reconstruction”. Heylash professionists take also care of the health of eyebrows and eyelashes, recommending, for example, strenghtening and nourishing treatments, like the innovative lash botox. In the beauty concept store, customers can indulge entirely in the pampering of expert hands and can take all the time necessary to enjoy the deserved relaxation. Therefore, Heylash put women’s well-being and beauty first and it gives value to the look of any age, colour and shape, creating a tailor-made treatment for each woman. In this way Heylash has overturned a standard and a homologated concept of beauty, launching this important message: diversity is beauty and must be brought out because it contains the real essence of being unique.

What are the most requested interventions in Italy? The most requested surgery is still breast augmentation (breast enlargement), followed by liposculpture and facial rejuvenation such as lifting and blepharoplasty. In recent years there has been a great increase in gluteoplasty, which in Brazil has already been widespread for several years.

What do you think has changed in recent years? You are more aware of the use of biocompatible material and, above all, the operating techniques have changed. For example, in the past lifting was done by traction only on the skin, without involving the facial muscles, as is the case today. The result is much more natural and lasting over time. Silicone prostheses today are also textured and much more durable and safe.

Some of the marvellous frescoes that adorn its rooms and portico are dedicated to vinegrowing, bearing witness to the important role that wine has always played in Trentino: it is the place that best represents the historical background of Ferrari, and acts as the company’s hospitality centre.

Da Vittorio Restaurant the Story of a Talent 104 | August - September 2018


TASTE

This is the story of Vittorio Cerea who opened “Da Vittorio” restaurant in Bergamo’s town centre with his wife, Bruna, in 1966. Bergamo soon became an essential visit for lovers of haute cuisine and success also brought the first Michelin star (1978), which, matched by the wealth of accolades and glowing write ups by leading food critics from Italy and abroad, was doubled in 1996. In the second millennium, the dream of joining the ranks of the Best Restaurants in the World also became true. Firstly by becoming a “Relais Gourmand” (in the restaurants section) and then becoming part of the Relais&Chateaux and Les Grandes Tables du Monde circuits just a few months after moving to a gorgeous villa with accommodations at Brusaporto, nestling in the green Cantalupa hills. 2010 finally brought the highly sought-after, third Michelin star. Today the name “Da Vittorio” is a mark of excellence in the world of catering and hospitality. Devotion acknowledged by the guidebooks - Three Michelin Stars – and the loyalty of an ever-increasing clientele. Da Vittorio is run by Signora Bruna Cerea and her five children. Enrico and Roberto are both chefs, Francesco manages the wine cellar and catering services, Rossella is head of hospitality at the Restaurant and Dimora, while Barbara runs Cavour 1880, the café-patisserie in Bergamo Alta.

August - September 2018 | 105


TASTE

The concept of “Lombard tradition and creative genius” is the leitmotiv of Da Vittorio’s menus, which are regularly updated and altered to keep up with changes in the market and in the seasons. The care, attention and exploration of culinary themes is kept wide-ranging to please all palates. The most diverse palates, personal tastes or culinary requirements can all find pleasure and innovation here: meat and fish, game and seafood, mushrooms and truffles, not to mention fruit and vegetables, all prepared with an original style that also takes into account the new frontiers in healthy cuisine.

Interesting Facts : Catering Da Vittorio From Bergamo to Los Angeles: the Cerea family takes its delectable gastronomic prêt-à-porter around the world. Even in the early days, Da Vittorio has always stood out for the team’s skill in preparing food “live”. Thanks to a specially conceived portable menu, dishes can be cooked directly on site. This technical approach allows us to prepare recipes to our usual standards, despite being away from our own premises. Our settings and mise en place (table linen, tableware, service), all of the highest quality, will make parties and weddings unforgettable.

ROMANCE, PIECE, ART, CULTURE AND INSPIRATION “You can have no conception of real beauty unless you visit Italy at least once and you must only make the effort to fully enjoy it at leisure “ (Johannes Brahms)

If you head north from Milan travelling towards the Alps that you can see in the distance you will be able to find lakes with blue waters and unique characteristics to satisfy all different tastes. If you are into fun head north-east, to go to Lake Garda. If you prefer the company of the rich and famous go north to Lake Como. If you prefer the aristocratic feeling of beautiful palaces and private islands head north-west to Lake Maggiore. But if you want romance, piece, art, culture and inspiration go east to reach Lake Orta. It is a small lake surrounded by high green mountains that make the water color deep blue, calming and relaxing. Light changes during the day to admire all shades of blue and green both in the mountains and reflected into the lake calm waters. While lesser known than all the other lakes in the north of Italy it has been inhabited since the Neolithic and it became ideal destination for writers, artist and noble families in 1780, when it became part of the Savoia Reign. Friedrich Nietzsche, Samuel Butler, Lord Byron, Honoré de Balzac and Robert Browning all came here to rest, read, replenish and indulge their imagination.

ENJOY Natural beauty and mystical elements are connected in the surrounding areas. The legend tells that Saint Giulio won a huge battle against dragons and snakes in the small Island of San Giulio in the middle of the lake. On the island the unique mediaeval architecture allows the visitor to go back in time and enjoy a stroll on the narrow streets and to visit to the ancient monastery still inhabited by secluded nuns. Silence is a must, while there is a constant reminder on the walls of the importance of silence to fully enjoy the area, there is an almost natural need of quietness and peace to fully absorb the history and the beauty of the place. The island can be easily reached by boat from Orta San Giulio, the small town built on the slopes of a steep hill that forms a peninsula that comes out from the lake. The narrow steep roads are charming and extremely elegant. The ancient buildings are memory of the importance of this area for
