07 November 2017


sustainable and rich of memories

There was just one moon. That familiar, yellow, solitary moon. 
The same moon that silently floated over fields of pampas grass, 
the moon that rose -a gleaming, round saucer-
over the calm surface of lakes, that tranquilly beamed down 
on the rooftops of fast-asleep houses. The same moon that brought the high tide 
to shore, that softly shone on the fur of animals and enveloped 
and protected travelers at night. The moon that, as a crescent, 
shaved slivers from the soul--or, as a new moon, 
silently bathed the earth in its own loneliness. 
THAT moon.

Haruki Murakami

TAWNY PORT is the perfect colour for November!

And here in Lisbon is still pretty #HOTUMN ...

 Aged tawny ports are wines made from red grapes that are aged in wooden barrels 
exposing them to gradual oxidation and evaporation. 
As a result of this oxidation, they gradually mellow to a golden-brown colour.

FRANCA Sozzani. Fashion and architecture.

A life into images: the visual storytelling

La vita ricomincia ogni giorno
 Franca Sozzani 

This month, my dear MOODers, the icon is Franca Sozzani

[ Franca: Chaos and Creation || documentary by Francesco Carrozzini  ]

Italian fashion editor from Mantova, during her carrier at Vogue and beyond, has been able to transform the idea of fashion editorialism into a new concept: the visual storytelling.

NOMERA jewellery meets GARE DO ORIENTE

by Santiago Calatrava

connections actions and reactions

All starts from a spontaneous observation:
Why, at some point, architects start designing jewellery?
What architecture and jewellery have in common?

I have some personal thoughts [...]

This journey will take us to explore new angles of the city
through the scale of the design of little objects.

LOCATION : Gare do Oriente, Parque das Naçoes, Lisbon

Remind me a second,

why everyone wants to be a digital nomad?


location independent
[or whatever that's called]

But first, how come that I am 31 and I am still randomly floating around?

⎯      ⎯      ⎯      ⎯      ⎯      ⎯

NO house
NO bf
NO a successfull carrier in Architecture

The 20 years old me would have been quite disapponted!

#5 BESTGRAM with Hot Dudes Reading

The top instagram galleries ever!

[ in boards of course ] 

This month it's not about design, art or graphic skills, but it's definetly about beauty and the esthetical value of a detail [the book].

An idea, some shots and hilarious captions make the magic happens.

Never-ending spring is a MOOD,

minimal and bright

Never cut a tree down in the winter time.
Never make a negative decision in the low time.
Never make your most important decisions 
when you are in your worst moods.



The storm will pass.
The spring will come.

24bottles è sempre con me,

nel mio ufficio all'aperto in centro Lisbona

 L'altro giorno, qui, mi sono persa a raccontare di questi giorni d'inizio estate [sorry, autunno! O #HOTUMN, come è stato coniato qualche giorno fa...] a Lisbona, il mio primo autunno in Portogallo. La splendida sorpresa è che oggi, 11 Ottobre, ci sono 34 gradi ed è davvero impossibile credere al calendario.

Come raccontavo, da quando sono tornata a Lisbona dopo il mio Agosto al Nord alla digital nomad farm, vivo in Saldanha. E' una zona residenziale, vicino al polo universitario, super comoda ai mezzi pubblici e a solo mezzora di camminata dal centro. Devo dire che sono stata davvero fortunata!
