Giorgio, at Osteria dei Mercanti, Brescia

Old school-mate, great Dino's friend.
On the bus to school he influenced my adolescence vocabulary with words such as "leso/a" "tirare le pezze" and similar. Verb of the year (learned via facebook) has been "gasare".
Almost obsessed with Islam and Middle-east trips, he dreams about the 70 virgins for all eternity kindly given by Allah.

what did he receive for xmas? (by Dino)

Federica, at Madera, Brescia

Back from Copenhagen for Christmas holidays, here is Federica!
Copenhagen is for sure an incredible almost perfect place, but.. something is missing up there. What? LUSH! There's no Lush in Denmark.
We must act! A little piece of Cocoloco soap for her!

Cecco, at Vinile45, Brescia

WHAT A BEARD!
I love it! And I also love the fact that he always has a comb in his pocket to take care of it.

it would have been great meeting
Mr.E

that look you give that guy

Angelo, pic stolen from his facebook

Homecoming time. Yesterday it was Angelo's turn, back from Japan!
I had to steal this picture cause when we met I was running to catch my train and I had no time to take him pictures.
I found him beautiful. Rejuvenated. Smooth and pale skin.
I want to spend some months in the Japanese countryside too.

it would have been great meeting

Viola, Rob, Marc, Vale, Dino at Marc's superclean place, Milano

Rob is back from Rio de Janeiro, where he spent the last 4 months!
We accidentally met at Muji (perfect place to buy xmas presents, even if in the end i always buy nothing cause it's too expensive for xmas presents) where he gave me a big hug while I was shouting "he just came back from Rio!!".
Night at Marc, talking about Rio and the Italian disastrous political situation.

it would have been great having

Paola and Paolo, at Between, Milano

I think I'm going to miss those pink-lilac walls.
Yesterday it was my last internship day at Between (good, useful and rewarding experience) and they are those who started with me as interns. You lucky thing!
We really had good nice time together.

met on 14 december


Ale, at PanePasta, Milano

After 5months of absence he came back to Milan on monday morning.
He definitely needed some pizzoccheri cooked by me!
He was a bit confused, very silent and maybe gloomy. I think it's normal: he used to live in Sydney, where it's summer now, and he spent the last 20days in New Zealand.
Poor boy!

it would have been great meeting

Costantinos, at Sgt Pepper's Milano

He bought this awesome lighter that projects this elegant image.
I loved it.

Marti, at Sgt Pepper's, Milano

[Sorry Marti, never thought iPhone could have such a powerful flash]
She is the CONCRETE girl. She always gets straight to the point.
And I like this a lot.
If you ask her a cigarette she advises you to take out the filter because she smokes light cigarettes.
Before Christmas she writes long wish lists for her boyfriend and her family, in order to avoid receiving the wrong present. "It's better for everybody, don't you think that?" "Yes, I do!".

is marchino a dj? yes, yesterday he was

moonage daydream

met on 8 december


Giovanni, at PanePasta, Milano

He is our neighbour Giovanni.
He came for lunch and while he was with me buying some wine, my flatmates set a beautiful Christmas table! We waited for Dino to finish working and then we had a great unusual early Christmas lunch:
- bruschette with oregano and fresh tomatoes
- pasta with calabrese tomato sauce and olives
- zucchini and cheese quiche
- pistachio ice cream
- bread with plum jam

My 90s friends, before the party, Milano

Thanks to Ozge for organizing a 90s party in her great flat, where you can play loud music and dance till in the dead of night.
I loved making me up using blue and pink eye shadows, but most of all I loved wearing extremely high waisted light blue Levi's bought for 1€.

i was really dressed like this

Chiara and her blog, Le cose che perdo, Tumblr

She has definitely her head in the clouds and she loses things.
The most different things, everywhere.
I always liked her and now she had this great idea that made me adore her.
Which idea?
She opened her tumblr Le Cose Che Perdo where she lists what she loses day by day.

it would have been great going to her concert
