1000 modi per abbracciare il mondo

MANI

Viaggio tantissimo, a volte anche troppo. Al ritorno, i miei occhi si cibano a lungo delle immagini, dei sorrisi, dei colori e degli odori che ogni esperienza mi regala ed è veramente un peccato non poter condividere queste emozioni con il mio bellissimo staff. In questi giorni abbiamo dato il via ad un progetto unico ed emozionante presso lo studio di Firenze e grazie a questa avventura da qualche giorno siamo immersi in un ambiente ancora più giovane e quanto mai multietnico. Grazie alla collaborazione con la Accademia Italiana di Firenze abbiamo infatti attivato un workshop attraverso cui studenti in interior design seguiranno insieme a me e al mio staff un progetto reale, una commissione importante, seguendo tutte le fasi creative e progettuali. Un progetto interessante per loro da un punto di vista formativo, un’occasione unica per me e per tutto lo studio per vivere un’esperienza internazionale senza dover prendere l’aereo! Brasilie, Emirati Arabi, Asia, Libano, Iran … tra Firenze e Milano ho avuto il privilegio di guardare in faccia il futuro, di essere un riferimento per ragazzi che stanno costruendo oggi il loro domani: sono tutti belli, volenterosi, umili e unici. Amano la loro terra ma considerano l’Italia il luogo dell’arte, del design, della moda. Sarebbe bellissimo se il bel paese riuscisse nuovamente a diventare meta del “Grand Tour” … sarebbe bellissimo riuscire a riappropriarci dello splendore della nostra terra e renderla nuovamente fulcro di innovazione e bellezza.

Conosci la terra dove i limoni mettono il fiore, le arance d’oro splendono tra le foglie scure, dal cielo azzurro spira un mite vento,quieto sta il mirto e l’alloro è eccelso, la conosci tu forse?

Goethe -Wilhelm Meister

TRADUZIONE (di Ron Samuel)

I travel a lot, sometimes too much.

On the way back, my eyes feed on the pictures, the smiles, the colors and the scents that every experience gives me and it’s really a shame that I cannot share these emotions with my beautiful staff. As such, we recently kicked off a unique and exciting project at the studio in Florence and thanks to this adventure, which is only a few days old, we are immersed in a multi-ethnic ambient full of even younger people than ever.

Thanks to the collaboration with the Italian Academy of Florence, we have set up a workshop giving an opportunity to interior design students – to work along with me and my staff while we execute a real project. This project is an important commission, and our student guests will be involved in every phase of its development to include all the creative and design phases.

It is an interesting educational opportunity for these fantastic students, and a unique opportunity for me and my entire staff – to have an international experience without having to take the plane ….. to Brazil, the United Arab Emerates, Asia, Lebanon, Iran … etc.

Shuttling between Florence and Milan, I have had the privilege of looking our future creatives in the face, to be a reference point for these kids who are … building their futures … ‘today’.

They are all …. beautiful, …. willing, …. humble and unique. They love their respective countries but they consider Italy the heartbeat and epicenter of art, design and fashion.

It would be great if our beautiful country, Italy, can once again emerge as the destination of the “Grand Tour” … it would be fantastic to be able to reclaim the beauty of our land and make it, once again, the Hub of Innovation and Beauty.

    Simone’s words are too beautiful to deny the non-Italian readers of this breath of fresh air.
