[Landscape made in Italy]: Turin


Hi all, how are you preparing for Christmas?
I was thinking about my time spent in Turin, a beautiful city in winter,
 host of the 2006 Winter Olympics: Turin.

It is the third economic center in Italy, after Milan and Rome.

Turin is famous for the headquarters of automobile manufacturers 
FIAT, Lancia and Alfa Romeo, Iveco, and for the football teams Juventus F.C. and Torino F.C.

Presumably founded in 27 BC Turin has really a lot of years of history to offer.

Asides being very important for universities, art, tourism, culture and science, it offers also breathtaking landscapes.

AF Vandevorst Fall Winter 2015 collection

A total lack of colour, a scary scenario made of unbreathable air and cold.
The winter 2015 collection by AF Vandervost is something that will chill your bones!

This said, the dresses are beautiful, rich and very classic.
The antifog mask always worn, hoods covering the mannequin's face, total overing dresses, with trousers always present.
The collection's symbol is a crow shaped hat dominating from the top the only dress showing the shoulders.

This collection uses black and grey, a hint towards Bellatrix Lestrange, the evil witch, evocating her but never really representing her.

This collection is pure art, it's the representation of a sick contemporary vision, probably at its end, an end of a glorious history.

It's the need of representing that olocaust that is currently destroying forests, seas, rivers, filling rains with acid, making air unbreathable.

Not a relaxing collection to see but absolutely beautiful.

Cotton flags in google serp

If you Google “cotton flag” the first result you get are men underpants…
If you google it in english, you get some american and nazi flags …
I think that someone should intervene and make more dignitous the relationship between cotton and flags.

 
There is no need to use Giza45 or Sea Island (yarns made by Emilcotoni)to make flags but at least, please, make underpants and nazi symbols disappear!!!

Flags have an inner value because they represent something more than a simple blend of colours left waving, they mean identity, culture, history.
Even younger flags, more modern, those who took the place of the old nation symbols represent the nation's pride.
Take Canada for example, they changed the Union Jack one with a flag representing the symbol of the nation in chich people recognise themselves; soon it will be New Zealand's turn that want to put in his flag the fern, already found in their sporting uniforms.


 And all this makes me say that a flag has in itself a sense of sacred, inviolable.
I am not accusing who makes underpants or bikini....anyone can do whatever he wants (and maybe make even great garments), what puzzles me is that the first results are underpants meaning that there are no valid alternatives around or simply google does not know them.
