26/10/2019 >>> a soft night in Pistoia – INSCAPE, curated by and @ Nub project Space together with Jung an tagen and Lorem. Check both links – i love the work of both of them!
I recently played some of my tunes as Tambour Doux / Ottaven during the 3rd screening / appointment of Avalanches #19 – a video exhibition by Carlos Casas curated by Davide Giannella at Triennale di Milano. I could work on some field recordings from Carlos and some short extracts from traditional Pamir music culture. Bravo Carlos, as much as he can he keeps on coming back to a small village called Hichigh, to keep filming how people lives there and how life is changing along the time. It’s a pretty far away and isolated area, clean air and strong roots. I’m glad to see how Carlos’s point of view is delicate and non-invasive at all..
Here is also the video from a march 2019 concert as Tambour Doux filmed by Ursss.
The beginning of september i have done some new drawings so here we are with a new serie of screenprinted t-shirts. As always my tshirts are manufactered here in Italy and hand-screenprinted in my studio. >> shop here <<
From 10 to 20 october i’ll be in Torino at ISOLA with a new batch a tees and my collaged pullovers.

2 food projects done together with Valentina Lucchetti:
We builded up a camp kitchen at Freaky Shit Festival at the amazing Spettro / Brescia.
Cooking food for the artists and the audience – a quite tough 48 hours session – almost non-stop – almost dead but never had so much miso soup before: fully happy and the festival had a pretty good line-up!
The second one was this last august in Lithuania at Braille Satellaite, a quite incredible festival fully wrapped into a beautiful nature. We totally had to improvise to create our proper cooking space with the material provided by the festival, we went to a farm market in Vilnius to buy food, rent big pots and search for whatelse could be usefull to worked on a 3 days menu. Nice, it’s a new experience.
Both situations – of course no photos of the food – we were always so much busy, probably next time?
To spend so much time into the socialmedia-life is boring..
Bruno in Venezia came to Milano so we had a temporary bookstore called Bruno in Garage. It was april 2019. In one night i did 20 benches for this Bruno’s shop and then everyhing went back to Venezia. Even if i’m really used to improvised this was the first time i talked about lampo design
Last march i had the pleasure to walk around the marvellous Orto Botanico in Palermo during Passeggiate in Blu – a special project by In fact and in fiction.
I could collect few leaves and twigs – to work then on a tiny and basic video system for a night solo concert at Baco about photographs – a small gallery in Palermo.
Thanks to Manlio, Valentina Lucchetti, Gloria Pasotti, Studio Tomo and Baco.
Presenting a new tshirt edition at my favorite place in Faenza: Clandestino – Arbusto.
Please soon or later go there – All the food and the way they prepare drinks is so pretty and so amazingly honest and fabulous.
