Roberto Monelli, the 1957 born architect, journalist, publicist and copywriter tells it in his latest book “Tortona Solari. Milan in un quartiere”, published by Mursia. The work, created in collaboration with the Museolab6 association, was recently presented at the BASE cultural center. We can speak of a real guide, designed to create attention and curiosity in the reader for an area that has undergone numerous changes, perhaps among the most interesting and incisive of those that Milan has experienced from over a century ago to today. Individual episodes that create a map: the author moves through areas, streets, from house number to house number with the care and interest of a historian, the precision of a topographer/cartographer, even of a detective. Data, facts, anecdotes abound, some well known, others almost unknown to most, but no less engaging or less thoroughly investigated.

… created by a group of students from the Tourism, Management and Culture Course at IULM, entrusted to Professor Manuela De Carlo, as part of the “Destination Management” workshop held by Professor Giuliano Gaia and resulting from a project by MuseoCity. The desired result was achieved thanks to fourteen teams of students who "explored" with video and photographic images as many museums, artist archives and cultural associations. Starting input and common thread that bind the visual documentations to each other: to make known the hidden beauty in the many, small/large "places" in which it becomes indeed art, culture, history, but also technology. The team which chose to narrate FlavioLucchiniArt Museum has created a sort of immediate, fast but exhaustive virtual path, set up with agility that winds through the labyrinthine spaces totally dedicated to the artist's work, inside SuperstudioPiù, at Via Tortona 27. Guiding and supporting this "speed tour" are the Gisella Borioli’s word - curator of the museum, co-founder with Lucchini himself of the hub, heart of the Tortona District, where art, design and culture have been at home for forty years – which punctuate the video and clarify the interpretation of fashion by Flavio Lucchini "... an extemporaneous fact, a cultural datum, a means of expressing oneself".

... Further confirmation of this is the presence of numerous artworks by Flavio Lucchini in the brand newGiorgetti Store - The Place located in Via Spiga 31, in Milan, which - thanks to the precious and constant collaboration of the Oblong Contemporary Art Gallery and its "feminine minds", Paola Marucci and EmanuelaVenturini - dedicates an entire floor of the prestigious and refined location to the artist's creations. The creator of the display project is the architect Giancarlo Bosio, Art Director of Giorgetti. We speak of an "elective affinity", to quote Goethe: winning, interesting, excellent. Not from today, of course.

Two dark, large, deep, attentive female eyes, accentuated by a mass of equally dark hair that falls free alongside an imaginary face: this is the interpretation that Flavio Lucchini offers, in the context of the collective art project "Vision 47”, to two textile armchairs from the Pila 47 series, conceived by product designers Paolo Emanuele Nava and Luca Maria Arosio and made by Rubelli.

A new volume, published by Rizzoli for Mondadori Electa, tells the story of the "gardener of fashion" and, in truth, not only of fashion: the American Ken Scott, who has been an eclectic character, an all-round creative and artist, fashion designer, creator of fabrics for clothing as well as for furnishings, painter, gardener, even writer.Scott certainly anticipates flower power by at least fifteen years, in more sophisticated and exclusive expressions. He is a free and curious spirit, almost a "global" genius of our Renaissance. Already a “green” painter in Indiana, where he was born in 1918, he arrived in Europe in 1946, first in Paris and on the French Riviera and then, in 1955, in booming Milan, to be discovered and appreciated primarily by Peggy Guggenheim.

It’s running strong the most stunning exhibition of the moment has a presentation facing the street thanks to hundreds of technicolor balloons which seem to want to submerge the iconic PopDolls sculptures by Flavio Lucchini, in a perfect match of colours. All that takes place in the Art Box, a real "showcase" of Superstudio Più, in Via Tortona 27 in Milan, the open minded cultural hub always open in its multi-tasking spaces to events of different spirit and inspiration. The Art Box set-up is the welcome and presentation ticket for the "Pop Air" exhibition, organized by the "Balloon Museum" and dedicated to "inflatable art", which had an enormously successful première in Paris and a first Italian debut , equally striking, in Rome, and which now arrives in Milan, right in the 7,000 sqm exhibition space of Superstudio in the heart of the Tortona District, from 23 December 2022 to 12 February 2023. Entirely instagrammable, this is the most "social" exhibition at the turn of the year.

… at the Flavio Lucchini Art Museum. On Sunday 20 November, the museum space inside Supersudio Più hosted a meeting of NEOS, the international of "travel" journalists and photographers. The place of art thus reconfirms its heterogeneous and articulated, vocation, as a meeting place, for discussion, for hospitality for anyone who dedicates his professional commitment to discovery and exploration, in the name of knowledge, culture and, last but not least, beauty.

In a spirit of coherence of intentions, themes and art proposals, Superstudio gives once again voice and visibility to the "female subject" as well as  to her essence, to the problems she has to face in the contemporary world, but also to the timeless glamour and the potential for fascination connected with its identity. The next representation of this dimension is offered by “Aldo Pallanza. Al femmiinile”, the exhibition curated by Fortunato d'Amico, scheduled from 17 to 27 November,  thefirst one personal exposition in Milan dedicated to the creator/designer/artist from Vigevano, which also becomes an occasion of celebration of the centenary of his birth.

After the debut at Superstudio Village "Art against violence - World with Women", an exhibition of interactive contemporary art made in Ukraine is going to move from 12 to 17 November to the Villa Reale in Monza, with all its emotional fullness, the horrors of war, memories and hopes expressed by photographs, paintings, installations, performances. A great part of the involved artists are women, the first victims of violence, who responded with powerful and, at times, poetic images and visions. Not to be missed.

 The exhibition curated by Giorgio Grasso is part of the "Ukrainian Art in Italy" project, conceived  by the associations VITAUK, Let's Do It Ukraine and Let's Do Italy, which, as mentioned, has already been proposed  - as an absolute preview in Italy -  the first week of last October at the Superstudio Village at Via Negrotto in Milan, a space which is going to become our fourth hub in the city, hosting Ukrainian refugees with their children since the beginning of the conflict. It was a significant and intense week, in which the exhibition of works by contemporary Ukrainian artists was connected with moments dedicated to fashion, prose and poetry, music and testimonies on what we want to define "open wounds" even today, nine months after the outbreak of hostilities.

Both. That's the unmistakable answer provided by Egyptian filmmaker Ali Ali's photo exhibition "Rockin' Mamas," offered at Superstudio Più's art gallery from Oct. 13 to 18. The reason for this thesis is perfectly clear: "White nights made of excess and unruliness: today, the real rock stars do not perform on a stage, but go on stage every day in our homes...," the director explains.

The exhibition in MyOwngallery reconfirms the attention that Superstudio's lines of thought and activities constantly pay to the feminine "living, doing and feeling" in our time and in our world, on the aesthetic and cultural as well as the ethical and social level. Superstudio's own reading of this theme is developed with great consistency, articulating itself, however, in proposals and projects that are very different from each other, always proposing original and not infrequently highly.

"An extreme interpretation of oil... far from modernist digressions or rural temptations, the presentation by Farchioni - Collezione di Famiglia makes a choice of timeless style… a language of elegance which find its expression in the clear and immediate shapes both of the bottle and the packaging. Black and gold, played with decorations and graphics ..." In summary, this is the awarding judgment of Gisella Borioli, co-founder, CEO, Creative and Artistic Director of Superstudio Più, called for the second time to act as “godmother” of the "LODO Concept & Design" component, in the general framework of the award of the same name, the oldest international and professional competition which selects the best olive productions from all over the world, making known the true excellence of extra virgin olive oil at 360°.
