This is Giulia, Festa di Radio Onda d'Urto, Brescia

Marlene Kuntz in concert. I was in peace with myself and with everybody / everything else around me. Giulia is a very calm, nice and interested in music person. I like her and being there together with Marlene Kuntz playing an amazing concert has been great.

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT MEETING

These are the Skarafaggi, Festa di Radio Onda d'Urto, Brescia

I love you! Unfortunately Ale (keyboard) is missing in this picture because the stage was too big!
Skarafaggi are six, four of them are very friend of mine. I was so proud yesterday night watching them palying on this big stage opening the Real Mc Kenzies concert. They played two new (great) songs and finally a DEVO cover, Mongoloid. Paul McKenzie (singer of the Real McKenzies) played a strange wooden ethnic sax during all Skarafaggi's songs and finally sang Mongoloid.


This is Robi, Festa di Radio Onda d'Urto, Brescia

Real Mc Kenzies on the stage, we fell in love with the bagpipes player.
Drinking brandy and mint to win sore throat, we planned to spend more time together next year in Milan.

These are Paul McKenzie and Gufo, Festa di Radio Onda d'Urto, Brescia

In the backstage after the Real McKenzies gig everything can happen: two singers play a mouth-organ and a wooden little sax. Everybody drink, the bigpipes player shows his penis piercing to a girl, I say to the drummer he looks like Asterix and he says me I'm beautiful, one of the Real McKenzies throws up.

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT MEETING


Mongoloid - Devo

These are Giulia and Stefano, Festa di Radio Onda d'Urto, Brescia

"Hi girls, I introduce myself: I am Stefano"
Our conversation started like this and continued in a totally nonsense way
After big efforts and digressions we understood that:
Brescia is the most beautiful city IN THE WORLD, but he can't move here because it's too far from Bologna
Festa di Radio Onda d'Urto is the best event IN THE WORLD
finally, and always in his opinion, Rancid and the Sex Pistols played here some years ago.

One huge kiss to Giulia, that is moving to Holland tomorrow.

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT LEAVING TO

These are Igor and Gianni, Festa di Radio Onda d'Urto, Brescia

I've always known Igor had a weakness for me, since when I was 14 and I arrived at secondary school.
Maybe I could imagine him asking my friend "are you her boyfriend?".
I would have never imagined Gianni answering him:
"no, i'm not! but i remember you! you attended Leonardo (our school), right?"
"yes, i did"
"cool, i think i smoked my first cilum with you!"

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT STILL BEING AT

This is Anna, Festa di Radio Onda d'Urto, Brescia

After quiet long time we didn't see each other:
"Anna! So you study .. physics?"
"No, not at all! You said physics only because when you had to enter Bocconi I helped you with that question.."
It's incredible how we convince ourselves of totally nonreal things: I really thought she was studying physics, while she lives in London and studies graphic design!


This is Nicola, Festa di Radio Onda d'Urto, Brescia

We attended the same secondary school. I don't remember any mutual friends we could have, so I don't know why I knew him. I adored him because he was always cheery and funny, but he hated my best friend (still don't know why) so I had to meet him alone.
Yesterday he was really hungry but every stall was already closed, luckily I was with Betty that always has something to eat in her bag: in this case was a olives bread.


These are Luciano and Alessandro, way home

Yesterday I decided to sleep at Betty's, but we didn't have a car.
She met these friends of her, they brought us home listening to Gun Club.
Thank youuu.

IT HAS BEEN GREAT BEING AT

I love Radio Onda d'Urto because of the great gigs it organises every year.

Junior Kelly, Festa di Radio Onda d'Urto, Brescia

I wanna fly to Jamaica, marry Junior Kelly and make love every morning, afternoon, evening and night.
XVIII edition of Radio Onda d'Urto self-financing festival started yesterday with Junior Kelly. Ok, I never listen to reggae at home (or better, I always listen to reggae at home, but against my will, because of my brother and his powerful speakers) but Junior Kelly on the stage really brings peace and fun to everybody.
Very difficult not to dance it.

The Bishops, parco Castelli, Brescia

The bare-breasted guy danced during all the concert time on the stage. He jumped, marched, danced as he was listening to techno music. He used to hug the bassist and to steal the show to the guitarist. What did the Bishops do? They laughed. They laughed a lot and had to keep their eyes down not to laugh too much.

Here is a video

Caterina is Clo's sister. She's 26 and lives in Paris.
"Caterina arrives on friday night!" She entered home, said hello to her parents and then came in her sister's room.
"I arrived in Italy three days ago and I drove for more than 1000 km during three days. I visited amazing places in the southern Italy."
Caterina is the full of energy sister everybody would like to have.

This is Federica, seaside, Civitanova Marche (pic by Clo)

Federica studies and lives in Rimini with three girls.
Do you know the meaning of the word Amarcord? I didn't. In Rimini it is a dialect expression for Mi Ricordo - I Remember.
The four housemates decided to use Amarcord as a tattoo, identical in shape for all of them but in a different position for each of them.

This is Clo, seaside, Civitanova Marche

Going back from Puglia I stopped at hers, in Civitanova Marche.
Lots of beautiful pictures, zen meditation and assumptions on the lifeguard's sentimental life.
We talked so much (and loudly) about very very foolish things, that I think our beach umbrella neighbour is still asking herself how we are heading for a degree at Bocconi University.
Waiting to leave to the Gobi Desert with the man of my (dream)life, I wish you a dreamful summer.
IT HAS BEEN GREAT MEETING

During my last days in Milan, closing my eyes I used to imagine:

I'm relaxing like this, on holiday with my family.

Commercial and Industrial Law, Università Bocconi, Milano

Last exam of my Undergraduate Career.
I had an amazing 30/30!
I deserve some relax on the sea, then in August I'm gonna write my final work.
I'm graduating in September.

It sounds really weird, I know. I'm already graduating.
But I'm proud of myself, because this third year has been great for what concern my universitary life. I've been able to hang out very often and giving exams the day after.
