357. Stockholm, InStyle, Sanremo.
I am in Sweden, in beautiful Stockholm!
Stockholm and Sweden in general have always fascinated me. Here the atmosphere is unique, may be because of the latitude but here the light has a particular quality and gives the landscape that special “Nordic” look with a sun that is on the horizon for much of the year…
In Stockholm you breathe art, design. Everything here has a harmony that is so natural, ethereal, almost indescribable… I like to allow myself to be pampered by this city so ancient but so modern… Here you can feel an incredible sense of organization, of perfection!
Stockholm, whose origins date back to the 6th millennium BC, is spread over 14 islands that make the geography of this city so unique. Famous for the Nobel Prize and for being one of the most important economic centers of Northern Europe, Stockholm has transformed itself over the centuries and the result is excellent.
Who knows, maybe here I can also find a few more Nokia Communicators, my preferred “Smart-Phone”…
If you get a chance get a copy of March 2015 InStyle USA. You will find a great article about my house in Florence. La Dolce Villa, with many beautiful photos by the great photographer Douglas Friedman, www.douglasfriedman.net.
Sanremo. I will try to explain to my non-Italian friends what the Festival of Italian Song is. It is the singing competition. It has taken place every year since it began in 1951. It is held in the quiet town of Sanremo in Liguria. It is a media gathering with a high concentration of journalists, photographers, paparazzi, record producers, singers, musicians and fans. Sanremo is completely transformed for the occasion
The festival of Sanremo is the singing competition par excellence. All the most famous Italian singers and songs that have become part of the history of post-war Italy have come from the Festival of Sanremo.
During the week of the Festival the whole of Italy is focused on the singing competition, the singers, the songs, the guests … A true multimedia event with the highest rating of audience and spectators.
This year I had the pleasure to dress the beautiful and talented Rocio Munoz Morales who presented the festival with Carlo Conti, Arisa and Emma.
But now l shall go, I’m going to discover a new fantastic restaurant here in Stockholm, I’ll let you know about the Swedish cuisine…
I LOVE YOU
