ROSSETTI RECORDS & BOOKS: THE PLACE WHERE I REALLY FEEL AT HOME

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There are places that “sound” like your own home. Around the world I have found a few, but the one where I really feel totally at home is a few steps from my place in Milan. Rossetti Records & Books second-hand store has been an institution for music (and book) lovers for over thirty years. Born from a “moment of rebellion & freedom” – as Maurizio Canella, a former philosophy student, tells me – the store near Piazza S. Agostino (via Cesare da Sesto 24), in the centre of Milan, has a strong fan base in town and all around Italy. In the Nineties Aron joined his father in the management of the store. In the music store the days are spent between tips on old vinyls (there are 100,000 titles in the archive) and chat about the ‘hoodies”. Writer Raul Montanari often  keeps Maurizio company. If you are in Milan and are looking for a place to regenerate yourself with Music, Rossetti is the place for you.

NINO ROMEO’S “DROIT AU BUT”

Nino_01

There have been so many ways to narrate migrations. In the last century photography has recorded the stories of those people forced to abandon their lands of origin – because of war, globalization, famine etc. etc. The project of friend photographer Nino Romeo does not focus on people’s faces – the chosen solution by the press and the media – but he prefers to “interrogate” objects that were washed up or abandoned on the beaches. In 2016 Romeo turns up with his camera, a Nikon Coolpix P7800, on the iconic beaches and bays of Capo Teulada, South-west Sardinia, in the places where a landing occurred. Shoes, t-shirts, plastic bottles now faded by the Mediterranean sun seem to have become part of the local wilderness: there is a delicate sense of continuity between the human need/urgency to migrate and Mother Nature’s unchanging and apolitical welcome. Nino Romeo does not judge what he sees; but his twenty color frames launch a cry of alarm to civil society.
