Unusual week-end in Bologna

Bologna is one of my favourite places in Italy! When I am there I feel at home and I really love to walk around, with nothing to do,  stopping by lovely Caffè Letterario just to have a good cappuccino with a special Bolognese cherry pie!  Last time in Bologna I went to see a beautiful exhibition by Arturo Martini,  a great italian sculptor born in 1889. If you are interested in arts I recommend a visit: amazing exhibition, beautiful location. Then it could be very pleasant to have some shopping in the old town in San Felice street, in the middle of a lot of marvelous shops just like Tassinari, a great shoe store in town! I never leave Bologna without a stroll in Piazza Maggiore:  the square of my dreams, full of bikes, people, cafès and restaurants with local food! It literally leaves you breathless! I am in love with those beautiful cloisters and those small streets where you can hear only the sound of shoes hitting the pavement! Every time I walk across the square and go towards the pretty Clavature Street full of other trendy boutiques and amazing food shops!  I went to EATALY for lunch which is located in a charming concept store where books and good food create a good mix.  It was a great experience especially spending my afternoon in the bookshop between shoes-arts-design books and finally walking around this medieval city till late night. Never got tired of her,  just try it!

The Museum of Contemporary Art of Shanghai joined forces with Maison Dior in to organize another beautiful fashion exhibition: Esprit Dior. The show is the celebration of this amazing brand and it concerns about the history and creativity of the maison thank to about a hundred stunning dresses, accessories, jewelry, scents, design sketches and a outstanding selection of photos realized by the great Patrick Demarchelier. As I checked it, the exhibition is characterized also by the frequent references between the Dior creations and the artworks of Chinese contemporary artists (photographers, painters, sculptors). A real pity not to be there…anyway…I will organize a trip to China soon!
