This is Richi, at his place, Milano
We only planned to drink one beer together.
Then a long sequence of events made us spend 3 hours together with other two friends sitting in a car (without a window) that did not turn on:
looking at two crazy girls driving their car on sidewalks
pushing the car in order to turn it on
freezing
laughing
obviously talking about nonsense things.

met on 11 september


This is Marta, Santorini 2008

Tomorrow she is leaving to Scotland to study at the University of Stirling.

Met her two years ago, I think we became friends (in the proper sense of the term) during a holiday in Greece, last summer.

I loved you! Saturday night has definitely been the best one.
Thanks God Marchino is still going to be my class mate.
Thanks God Sonia you are fucking spontaneous and not at all paranoid and I loved it.


This is ?, Magnolia, Milano

Quite a dickhead.


This is Sabine, Magnolia, Milano

I met her for the first time at Conchetta with Betty and Stella.
I don't remember too clearly what we told each other, but she is nice.
Later I met her dancing in an awning with very great music but that smelled of goats.
Nobody cared about that and we spent inside there very long time.

met on 4 september


These are Ludwig and Christian, Magnolia, Milano

Two german guys in Milan. They could not believe every club is closed till mid september, but it's true. Here best clubs do not have open air spaces, so they close during summer. I've never thought about that before, but it is really weird.
I hated their english full of german sounds and german grammatical constructions.


This is ?, Magnolia, Milano

He spent all friday night with us. It was his first night in Milan, he moved right yesterday.
He is kind a Marchino's friend or a Marchino's cousin or a Marchino's friend's cousin.
I don't know if he had fun, but I'm sure he didn't get bored. Maybe just a little bit HIGH.

IT HAS BEEN GREAT MEETING

Roberto Dell'Era, bassist for Afterhours

La Vedova Bianca - Afterhours

met on 3rd september



This is Vincenzo, Bar Bocconi, Milano

Paul and I met him on the bus at 3.30 in the afternoon.
We decided to spend the afternoon together.
Then we decided to go to Magnolia together.
Then we had breakfast at the airport together.
Finally we said us goodnight at 7 the morning after.


This is Zeno, Magnolia, Milano

Zeno, also called Aladin.
We showed him the way to go to Magnolia and he spent with us the whole night.
First thing Paul said to him: "Hey, why are you wearing a costume? This is not a masked party."
Zeno came from Verona with a sleeping bag, he said he had to sleep at a friend's but he didn't know where his friend lived.


This is Giulia, Magnolia, Milano

-> Giulia
+ her beautiful eyes
+ a fan
= I love this picture


These are Eleonora and Stella, Magnolia, Milano

They are between the most crazy girls I've ever known at my university.
Two times I saw the one on the left arriving in the morning to give an exam directly after party: high heels, pleated dress and melted make up .. but great notes. She's an idol.
For what concern Stella, I was totally mistrustful first time I knew her. But after having see how fucking drunk she was yesterday night, I can't be mistrustful about her anymore.

This is Paul, Central Station, Milano

Paul arrived in Milan at 3 pm.
It was very hot and humid, I was sweating.
He arrived smiling and wearing this vintage leather jacket.


This is (Matteo?), going home from Magnolia, Milano

After having asked to lots of people, they gave a ride to me and Paul.
We agreed that they would have left us at a bus stop in Lambrate.
BUT Matteo and I discovered we come from the same village, we grew up in the same village: Verolanuova.
That's why they gave us the lift till where I live and didn't left us 6 km far from home.

When something is driving me paranoic and I need an advice, I call him. He doesn't care about hurting me, he is always sincere.
This time I didn't need an advice, but I had good time talking about nothing.
