Sunday from my desk


An early Sunday afternoon walking in the streets of Milan covered with snow.
Today I began to look again at the facades of the buildings.  So many buildings where Liberty can be read in the stones, and the decorations are the signature of great ideas.  When modernism put its strong imprint on Milan, not just as another style,
but as a new powerful way of thinking.

 This innovation in ideas motivated the art and design of the times, and  has given us some of the most enduring and challenging designs in fashion, architecture and lifestyle.  One still gratefully admires their beauty and intelligence.
