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.

BELLINZONA BLUES SESSIONS – DAY 1

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I took this series of shots during the first day of Bellinzona Blues Sessions 2018. Waiting for the performances on the main stage (Band of Brothers with friend drummer Rocco Lombardi and Nico Duportal & His Rhythm Dudes) I spent the late afternoon  taking street shots of lovely people dancing, chatting and eating in the “village” organized in the Bellinzona’s main square. On the secondary stage, “aperitif stage,” I shot Swiss band JC Harpo & Ardy Blues Band. It was an opportunity to test my new Olympus Zuiko 30mm f3.5 MACRO. ENJOY!
