From trials of street-artists caught in the act of committing "crime", to urban art that has became the essential ingredient to make cities attractive and suburbs tasty. Milan once again as "movement" leader aiming to increase art on the walls, in the gardens, in the squares. Everything began fifteen years ago. I was there.

I remember when, in 2006, the then newly elected mayor Letizia Moratti called me to join Milan Strategic Committee in order to give suggestions on creativity still dormant in my city, one of the first things I tried my hand at was an attempt to clear street artists from undesirable ghetto to the real artists one, such as many were, making the difference between vandals/taggers and guys who expressed dreams and drawings with murals, often ennobling degraded walls...

To understand Job Smeets, a visionary artist who has no equal, I would suggest starting from his website, which tells more than a thousand words. Everything is spectacular, unique, questionable, quirky, opulent. In fact it’s the other side of modernity: the one which hybridizes banality and visions, technology and manual skills, pop and kitsch, humor and horror, function and dysfunction, museums and markets, awards and provocation. With a global success result.

And finally from Antwerp, after so many successful exhibitions, awards initiatives, you arrive in Milan…  
After living in Paris, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Berlin, London...

A quite full programme, starting from Friday, January 15th, with new and historical names, street-wear and reassuring classics, catwalks on unlikely runways differently set and futuristic locations, multi-ethnic models and dancers and performers.

Always one step ahead Prada with comments from fashion school students around the world, live streaming.

In the five-day digital Calendar released by Camera della Moda for January 2021 Men's Collections, there is no shortage of style contrasts. If on the first day Zegna is followed by Lagos, Fendi is preceded by Spyder...

He began by scorching the historical icons of design, authentic pieces by Eames, Rietveld, Gaudí. Smoke series is in fact the starting point which clarifies his vision, 2002, just graduated. A few years later he arrived at Superstudio, 2006, with Clay, a series of imperfect, irregular chairs and cabinets, as if modeled by hand. And indeed they are.

We knew that our "Unreal but Real" exhibition with Flavio Lucchini artworks in augmented reality was avant-garde, but we would not have imagined even prophetic. A new way of enjoying contemporary art that Superstudio had already guessed almost two years ago. A trend that today becomes a necessity. 

Presented in April 2019 at Superstudio Più with the brand new technology created by Sense - immaterial Reality, the virtual exhibition allowed you to enjoy an emotional journey through the mobile phone and a dedicated app of Flavio Lucchini's large sculptures and installations, which interacted with visitors and they could also be photographed as well as shared on social media...
