I was with my friend Laura (my future personal assistant, that day in which this blog will make rich and famous thanks to the millions of followers like you) and we started with the Marni “Merquado de Paloquemao”, where exotic fruits was shown along with colorful stools, fruit bowls and bags. They were quite beautiful, made out of plastic threads by Colombian women and sold on site (the money goes to a charity). I particularly liked the stool you see here because it reminds me of a very similar one, made of bamboo, that my brother and sister and I used to have at home… I still have it in fact! And believe it or not I still use it!
We then moved to the center of town and had a tour of the Poldi Pezzoli museum, where sculptures created with geographical papers were mixed with the famous painting “La dama” by Il Pollaiolo, old armours and other ancient objects. We moved then to Brera, where we had an invitation for the special opening of an antique store, and finally back home… we take the same bus but in the opposite directions, so we have developed this habit of staying in one of the two bus shelters according to the waiting time, and this time it was her turn to ran toward the bus while we were saying goodbye!
I was very very tired, and to be honest with you, the Max Mara brogues weren’t so comfortable for all that walking… a poor choice it was! But I always love to see my hometown so animated and lighted and vivid, with everything opened till late and so many people strolling by, bringing different languages and styles!
