We spend a long weekend in Milan for the wrap-up of Design Week.
We took a drive up to a mountain rifugio in Lessinia to eat homemade gnocchi with Monte Veronese cheese.
We go in search of "La Venerina" and find the original woodcuts for Fortunio Liceti's Monsters.
Carnevale 2015 - Venerdì Gnocolar.
Wolf on the run.
After a few false starts, it's official. The befana is burned. Addio 2014!
Last year we stayed in Verona over the holidays, having blown our bank on a stateside trip during the month of August. This year we arrived a week before the Big Day so we could help Peg and Mr. Spera stand up the “real tree” and decorate the house.
Mary, Steve and I take a weekend trip to check out the architecture Biennale in Venice.
A lazy 18th wedding anniversary day spent junk shopping.
Ghost of a one-time maritime prosperity.
We spent four days at Casa Polazzo creating our third installation for the group show, Art Farm Pilastro. This year it was titled "VELARE SVELARE RIVELARE".
This year, we stayed in a funky 1960s apartment right near all the action in Zona Tortona. Here are some images from our week: a few from The Fiera in Rho; some nights out on the town; and others from Fuori Salone (exhibits in the city center).
We take my parents to the Piran Peninsula in Slovenia, just three hours from Verona and a few miles from Trieste. The town of Piran was once part of the Venetian Republic.
3 Weeks in the USA - Boston, New Hampshire, San Francisco and then a few days in Richmond, Virginia.
Artfarm is in the Bassa Veronese, a very flat (sunny and hot!) expanse south of Verona. After five days of ceaseless labor and intense heat, we drove about 30km north to the mountains for some much-needed rinfrescamento (cooling off).
