Albi, Jacopo, Ari, Ste and Simo at Sacrestia, Milano

They all graduated and we (friends) were so proud of them that decided to make them act for us: Albi was the superhero, Jacopo the bad guy who kidnapped the fairy princess Ari, Ste was the prince and Simo his horse.

Stefano, at PanePasta, Milano

Stefano is a friend of my flatmate Ceci's brother. He was at our place before going to Leoncavallo for the Modeselektor concert. Stefano is a writer and he is one of those lucky people who earn money by doing what they like!
He did not want to be portrayed because he does not want his face on the web, but we agreed that this profile is not a proper portrait.

Stefano, at Vice party, Milano

When I was younger (I mean only three-four years ago) and I used to go dancing regularly he used to play with another guy called Ruggero. Now they organize Spectrum parties in Milano, but I can't say anything about it, I've never been there. The only thing I know, for sure, is that they're gonna make you dance.

Fuggio, at Vice party, Milano

We met out of toilets. He was waiting for his girlfriend Maddi, she was supposed to be in female toilets, but I was queuing there and I did not see her. There was only one door, so I should have seen her! Hope he finally found her.

Kitsch-tombola prizes won by me and my flatmates, at PanePasta, Milano

Saint-Lucia kitsch-tombola! We did it at Marchino's place and it has been a great success!
Among prizes we won: pink glitter cap, plastic coloured jewellery, Chinese calendar, starlights, fake fur hot-water bottle, Mao Tse Tung most famous quotations, many books, mug and relative dish, sushi shaped candles, other useless stuff.

Manu and Nando, pic 'stolen' from the facebook album of Erika and Paul's wedding

Manu and Nando are Marchino's parents. They're are incredible and, apart from Marco, they have two beautiful daughters. One of them, Erika, married two years ago with a double ceremony: catholic and sikh. The picture above was taken during the indian wedding.
I had to use this picture because I lost the one I took at Bar della Pusterla in Milano, where I met them on sunday morning. They were in Milano to visit their beloved son and they brought him something to eat (he lives alone)...

I really like The Please and I deeply hope they'll gain all attention they deserve.

Dino, Ivan and Yessen, under Lambrate train station, Milano

Yessen arrived at Ivan's on the 6th, but I was in Brescia, so we met only yesterday. 
I'm really glad when he comes here, because my friend Ivan is happy, but also because he's an incredibly smart, interesting and pleasant guy. 
We went together to Lambrate for the Matthew Dear dj set, but I personally didn't listen to it because I was out chatting with Dino and we didn't realize time was going by so quickly.

[pic 'stolen' from Secret Wood Bazaar Wear - Fall/Winter 2011 facebook album]

Isn't she beautiful? Yes, she definitely is.
My friend Flavia has recently hired Secret Wood (do you remember? met on 29 november) to shoot a promotional video of her shop Bazaar Wear (based in Brescia and Bergamo) and I really can't wait to see it.
The picture above has been taken during the video shooting and I love it.

I'll never stop saying that my friend Betti is the best vegan cooker EVER.
Yesterday at Caffé Letterario she delighted our palates with a huge variety of pastries and cupcakes.
I seize now the opportunity to advertise you these icon sets I fell in love with:

Chiara, Brescia
[pic 'stolen' from her facebook]

Chiara! We spent a lot of time together during our eventful adolescence, then we changed habits friends and towns and we almost lost sight of ourselves. 
Last time we talked each other it was July and I found her deeply changed, but yesterday I met her at Vinile45, where she works as (incredibly sexy) bar girl.  I've found her so much changed again and I was really happy to see her.

The supercute guy in the centre of the picture cooked delicious kazak dumplings for us. He spent the afternoon skyping with his mum in order to prepare everything in the perfect way. Thank you Ivan!
