In some parts of Tokyo, it is not unusual to feel as if you have stepped into a scene from Blade Runner. As in the world of the film, one can pass through a residential neighborhood of narrow streets and alleyways filled with the smell of cooking food to the artificial side of the city, with its skyscrapers, apartments, and offices.

The search for Paradise Lost can be understood as an extension of our individual search for our own personal Eden—a response to nature perceived as eternally insufficient. The idea of the garden is borne from this urge and is something inescapably artificial.

They have placed before us things, signs, images, specters and phantasms .... Not without reason did Socrates once call the loss of sensation by the name oblivion; if he had not for the same reason described memory as a seed cast forth as a concept similar to insensibility, he would have explained a deeper thing.

I believe a serious writer describes action only to reveal a mystery. Naturally, he may be revealing it to himself as well as to his readers. And he may not be able to reveal it to himself at all but I believe that he can’t help but feel its presence.
From “Introduzione” by Marisa Caramella in Flannery O’Connor, Tutti I racconti, Milano 2009, p. VII
Fashion film is a category in which you can find together multiple fused arts and disciplines.
Among the many definitions that can be used to describe a fashion film, that cannot be confined into just one section, the experimentation is the strongest and most interesting characteristic of a fashion film.
A space that gives value to this art is the Milano Fashion Film Festival, a project by Costanza Cavalli Etro, now in its second edition.

Eightgrams is a brand new jewelry project Milan based that blend art and craftsmanship. This first release is born form a collaboration with the artist and photographer Alessandro Di Giampietro with a selection of unique pieces made of eight grams of pure gold.
An antique jewel with its own story is manipulated and transformed, its essence is revealed, the alchemistic process trigger by fire takes the object back to its inner soul.
Magic, materials, shapes gives life to an amulet deeply connected to the ancestral meanings of gold.
Revelation of identity moulded by fire…

The furnishings-symbols of Italian radical design by Francesca Balena Arista
Ai primi di settembre, nella splendida cornice di Villa Belgiojoso a Merate (LC) grazie all Fondazione Brivio Sforza e alla curatela di Carlotta Testori, uno scrittore Gianluigi Ricuperati, una musicologa Ricciarda Belgiojoso e Jorinde Voigt, artista visiva, hanno riportato al presente gli echi passati di un luogo dove la cultura si incrociava e fioriva. Tutti e tre hanno avuto modo di soggiornare alla villa, scambiare idee e assaporarne l'atmosfera; il prodotto che ne è derivato è multiforme, disegni, musiche e testi. Fruit ha deciso di dare spazio alle parole, Gianluigi Ricuperati ci regala due dei brani scritti per l'occasione e il suo punto di vista su quest'esperienza.
