378. Florence-Milan-Florence with Frecciarossa.
Besides the pleasure of knowing the most beautiful women in the world one of the things I love about my life is traveling!
I travel by plane and helicopter. I use the car for short trips and I recently discovered the pleasure of travelling on the Frecciarossa…
The Frecciarossa is a high-speed train that reaches 360 Km/h. This allows me to go from Florence to Milan in only an hour and 45 minutes!
The journey is extremely comfortable and the train has several advantages.
One advantage is that it allows me to use the computer comfortably. The current laptops have highly advanced graphics capabilities. I can view and edit the graphic compositions of my prints and play with shapes and colours.
I can also browse my extensive photo archive. It is one of my sources of inspiration, a think tank full of images. Those are the pictures taken over the years on my travels around the world.
An hour and forty-five minutes fly away in a moment. We are already in Bologna and from here the landscape suddenly changes. We leave the flat and abundantly fertile Po Valley to venture into the long dark tunnels crossing the Tosco / Emiliano Apennines. There is always a light at the end of these tunnels. That light is Florence!
And then suddenly I recall my intrepid travel by car, a Fiat 500, blue with red seats, in which I drove, manual shift, up and down through the gears, from Florence to Como through the Apennines in an endless series of switchbacks and hairpins turns, before the highway had been completed!
I was young and the desire to carve out a corner in the fantastic world of Fashion was one of my great aspirations…
How many good memories and how many trips since then…
Tell me about your memorable trips your salad days… when life was green, and occasionally hung by a tread.
I LOVE YOU
