Never stops, beautiful, inspiring, crowdy, fashion, food ,business and architecture – these are the words that can define Milan in all its perspectives. As one architect said that ” Milan was build for business, but Rome for people”, you could actually feel it when you are there. Even though the city is filled with loads of local and individual businesses, it makes it in a way special and you start loving it when you walk on it’s roads. Architecture has its own chic and uniqueness that makes it shine even more.
Having a two week workshop in Pavia within an Architectural Competition, and having the chance travelling to Milan it was a huge experience and just wonderful days. Milan rises into you some kind of wildness or child that is kept inside you. Me and my friends escaped from the whole group for a bit and run away to see the main square. We knew there is something more to see there. Just for the record, those weeks we were in Milan, were very special because of the Carnival and Fashion Weeks. So you could only imagine how many people were attending fashion weeks and you can get the feeling. Getting back to our escape plan : reaching the main square we got amazed by the amount of fashionable people sitting eating Italian ice cream and enjoying sun and themselves. In that rush hours, time stopped for everybody and everyone was the same under the sun, loving it. It was magical. It was it – Milan. Love from the first sight.
There is never late to have a look at the warm places on this globe and to enjoy good memories of Italy diary, even in Winter season.
Italy is one amazing country that catches you from the first sight…and makes sure it stays there in your mind for a long long time. I always was wandering is that because of delicious food, fabulous people or warm colors on the buildings. But maybe all together creates that aura around it that you get fascinated and fall in love.
In the pictures I collected there is shown in its brilliant way – Giglio Island in Italy and Porto Santo Stefano. Starting from different tastes of ice-cream, various pizzas and ending with houses and flowers, in Italy everything is very very colorful and joyful. Sometime we are afraid to play with color and to put more color on the buildings but keep it standard. As sunny is the country, as more color you see on the buildings… You can find any type of brick buildings in North part of Europe, but also a variety of painted houses in warm and sunny countries.
Island of Giglio is a smal populated island on winter time, being app. 400 population, but summer filled with tourists and ice-cream shops. The urban structure of the cities close to ports are really concentrated, but than you have to climb a whole hill or mountain to get to another haven place with sandy beaches and cute personal houses that you can only dream about.
Wish you a joyful time and most colorful life to all…
