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.

DIEPPE: THE FORGOTTEN BATTLE FOR FREEDOM

The Forgotten Battle for Freedom_01 72

June 15, 2008. 66 years later I stepped on the same beach where Commonwealth and US soldiers fought and died against the Nazi army. At the time of my visit in Varengeville-sur-Mer a couple of tourists trekked on the seabed (low tide effect, you know), another one was sunbathing under the falaise. In the distance Dieppe calmly lived another day of peace. Nobody seemed to remember the sacrifice of the brave young men who in August 1942 defied Nazi domination over Europe. These five b&w never-published-before frames taken with a compact digital camera are my personal tribute to all the soldiers who fought “The Forgotten Battle for Freedom.” Thanks, boys! #fightfascism
