COOPERATION

COOPERATION

If I say cooperation, what is the first thing that comes to mind?

Etymologically, collaborating means to work together.

Is there one particular thing you collaborate on?

A quote from Goethe says:
It is necessary to come together, not to stand together, but to do something together.

Do you find that to be right?

The laborious idea of doing, where unity does not make strength but creates.

Do you find more inspiration in sharing, or do you need your own carve-out of solitude?

Increasingly at the work level, an aptitude for teamwork is required as a more effective method than joining separate pieces together like puzzle pieces.

Speaking of joining and collaborating, 2010: Escape from Polis is a blog with a very unique concept: everyone can be an author as well as a reader and commenter.

I am very grateful because I received an invitation to write completely freely.

Of course, I accepted it very gladly and thought I would talk about the famous exoskeleton  about which there has been a lot of talk since the announcement of experimentation by workers of a well-known supermarket chain came out.

BAGS: UNLIKELY CONTENTS

BAGS: UNLIKELY CONTENTS

Bags: unlikely contents. I’ve already joked about it  because you really can’t imagine what could come out of my bags.

But this time I found someone who beats me.

After ArtyCapucines, after the Bouncing bags and the bags of I sew so I don’t kill, about which I have already told you, after upcycling with Wicker bags, I point out the Snowman carrier!

And in particular Matsuzawa Yuko is the artisan who for Tsuchiya Kaban conceived and created the snowman bag!

The concept of 土屋 鞄 製造 所 【TSUCHIYA KABAN: In the mind of every conscientious leather bag craftsman is an imaginary drawer full of imaginative bag ideas that can be used to carry different things. By honing their skills and drawing on the knowledge they learn day by day, our artisans can bring design ideas into their minds.

It must be said that they managed to make it happen in an excellent way!

The snowman holder was born with this thought: Warmed by the steam rising from a bowl of hot soup on a cold morning, a quick glance out the window catches a drifting snowflake, white as cotton, the welcoming sight of the first snow is always a pleasant surprise. If only I could share with someone dear, the moment the first snow falls in the air …

And you, what would you like to keep in a bag?

KEEP CALM AND … ROLLER SKATING!

KEEP CALM AND … ROLLER SKATING!

Keep calm and… roller skating!
Yes: this time the keep calm is on wheels!

And it’s not the rusty ones I’m missing, luckily for you.

But not even the wheels of the experiments that Eleonora and I recently, by a curious coincidence, we told each other in these comments

Keep Calm wheels are spectacular and belong to the Victoria Alba Asd skating quartet.

Victoria Alba is an association of about 100 members, ranging from 5-year-olds to adults who are passionate about skating. They train in Alba in the province of Cuneo and participate in events and competitions at the provincial, regional and national level.

I got to know Victoria Alba after participating in the Fisr regional championship in Novara where the Keep Calm girls got fifth place in the National Division Quartets category with an exhibition inspired by the film “The greatest showman” … just to stay on the musical theme. 

Their names are Benedetta, Michela, Sara and Sophie and they are between 14 and 16 years old.

Obviously I could not contact them to ask how the choice of the name Keep Calm was born.

Here is their answer:
The choice of this name did not happen by chance, on the contrary, as we know the translation of this short construct is “stay calm.” We as a team have decided to make it personal, reminding us that we have all the skills to face our seasonal competitions head-on, without being overwhelmed by uncertainty or inner turmoil. Because after all we ourselves have decided to undertake this path which in a certain sense has helped us to mature and grow as people who are in control of themselves.

I would say that they have very clear ideas and that they deserve my sincere applause.

Come on girls! My cheering is all for you!

In case you want to follow the Keep Calm quartet, as well as the other athletes, you can find them both on the Facebook page and on the Instagram profile

Have you ever tried to skate?

I am sure you will tell me fantastic performances.

The roller skates with which I completely “grated” my forearm in second grade were more or less like the ones in this photo.

Don’t laugh too much though!

NO UNESCO HERITAGE

NO UNESCO HERITAGE

No UNESCO heritage for espresso: the application was rejected. Passed. Not allowed. What is the most correct wording?

It is certainly more kind to say that the candidacy The Italian Espresso Coffee between culture, ritual, sociality and literature in the emblematic communities from Venice to Naples was not admitted by the committee by the Council Director of the Italian National Commission for Unesco, who preferred the Opera.

Of course we all agree that the art of opera is worth it.

But the coffee just “wasn’t there?” Pity.

However, it remains a heritage for us.

At this point our thoughts turn to the sensational rejections.

The first that comes to mind is the famous Meryl Streep audition for King Kong.

Here she tells us directly, but above all divinely I would say

Or we can quote Fazi Editore and the interview with Elido FaziGore Vidal pointed out Dan Brown to me. His book got there six months before it was released in America. We read it absent-mindedly and didn’t do anything about it.

In other words, we can say that “reading absent-mindedly” harms.

Whenever I think of underestimates I am reminded of Shirey MacLaine and the recurring sentence in The Last Word movie “The Kinks are the most underrated band ever.”

In fact, many were surprised by the choice of David Gilmour who in a 2003 BBC interview indicated Waterloo Sunset as the first of the songs he would choose a desert island.

Do you want to tell me some anecdotes too?

Or maybe you also have a personal experience, of rejection or even better of revenge?

Indeed, more than revenge, I’d like to talk about rebirth

Being born is not enough. It is to be reborn that we are born. Everyday. Pablo Neruda

What do you say?

KEEP CALM WE HAVE HEART

KEEP CALM WE HAVE HEART

Keep calm we have heart is the title of a solo exhibition at the municipality of San Severo by the artist Gianni Pitta

San Severo is a place that has impressed me reading Giovanni Rinaldi‘s books, in which certainly the heart is not lacking.

In this case, however, it is about the heart understood in an artistic sense, I quote verbatim: Keep calm we have heart, wants to re-propose the central theme of the heart as a symbol, but also as a language, as a thought whose purpose is mainly to be of hope, of love and not only an amplifier of torment, a consequence of this human malaise.

We undoubtedly need a lot of heart and hope, particularly in this period.

And I found myself thinking about the times when I happened to draw a heart: my hearts were always imperfect, asymmetrical, sometimes just unbalanced.

Yet perhaps they were truer, like this: crooked and squashed.

And if we also try to write heart in a different way, we get for example heArt which is a social platform dedicated to art, born in 2021 with the intention of giving visibility and sharing to artists. .

Did you already know it?

Remaining in the artistic field, HOW MANY times could we quote heart?

What is the first heart that comes to your mind?

IF YOU SEE HER:  THE EX MOTHER IN LAW WANTS THE POLO BACK

IF YOU SEE HER: THE EX MOTHER IN LAW WANTS THE POLO BACK

If you see her: the ex-mother-in-law wants the Polo back this is the writing above the photo, published on the Dutch blog GeenStijl, of the woman we have come to know as Sara LemLem.

This story dramatic at first is becoming bitter for the people involved, to whom all my respect goes.

I know, this is also extreme who cares news, but since the episode of Chi l’ha visto hasn’t aired, we can’t run out of updates, right?

And since it all started from Vigevano … you don’t care, do you ?!
Come on, now I’m telling laughing

For those who are not chilavister … briefly: in December the appeal for a woman who disappeared from Vigevano is released.

I know you will say “with the fog you have, where is the news?” 🙂

Joking aside, obviously the companion is very worried, even if, perhaps due to apprehension, his words at first seem strange.

In light of the incessant news about feminicide,  also considered that Mr. Corrado said that Sara left after a quarrel, he was asked questions about the nature and above all about the modalities of their quarrel, fearing the worst.

In the following days the searches are extended in every possible way, and the firefighters plumb the Naviglio Sforzesco and other city waterways, without any positive results.

But the diffusion of the photo, published on the website of Chi l’ha visto, bounces almost everywhere, and leads to a Dutch track that reveals a twist unexpected about Sara’s past.

Patrick, from Amstelveen, provides documents, photographs and also the complaint relating to the car of his mother, the ex-mother-in-law who wants the Polo back, which seem to leave no doubts.

The contact takes place through the editorial staff of the Informatore Vigevanese to which then Mr. Corrado tells more details about how he met Sara on a Belgian dating site, and about their trip to Italy.

Sara never wanted him to go to her flat claiming that it was in common with an Egyptian cousin, with whom she also collaborated on a working level.
Sara arrived at the meeting with all her luggage in a car that she left in a parking lot in Antwerp, saying that a friend of hers would have taken steps to recover it.
Sara told him she had lost all documents.

And I’m not even writing that, while doing research, I found Sara as an author, or more precisely as a Milanese videomaker of Eritrean and Ethiopian origins, but that the link leads to an even different identity: Sarita, because at this point it is not even important.

Thinking of people who disappear, where it does not turn out to be a terrible epilogue, one wonders HOW one can even travel without a trace …

Here, in this case the ex mother-in-law rightly wants the Polo back.
