Lace Shunga Cinnamon
Susanna Orlando Gallery is pleased to present a special edition of eleven copies of Piero Pizzi Cannella inspired by Japanese erotic art. The exhibition will inaugurate on December 8, 2017 and will feature an extraordinary set-up of eleven pieces of Pizzi Cannella. The artist's interest in the Orient and Oriental aesthetics arises from his consideration of Japanese art as a mysterious and precious language at the same time and opens his mind to a sort of imagination. The master does not tell us a story, but a fairy tale, a refined collection of works that describe the figures of Eastern lovers as in a dream because they are eternal. The shunga strike because of their audacity depicted, however, with delicacy and invite the guest to enter into the heart of the work. These bold images possess a force that goes beyond the represented scene, combined with sinuous and refined lines. In this way, Japanese lovers become witness to the sensuality of painting, so eros becomes art and art becomes eros. The love also told in the most daring eroticism is raised to a sort of sacredness. This is the ideal scenario from which the shunga is born and one of the secrets of its sophistication, essential elements in the work of the Roman artist whose strong emotional charge is capable of vibrating our soul. The precious collection of engravings comes from the folder that contains them and is presented in the style of the gallery in a dedicated set for which a precious Rubelli fabric was chosen.

"Firenze mare" the literary guide of Simone Innocenti
Friday 19 January at 6 pm the Florentine journalist, Simone Innocenti, will present in letter22 his 'literary guide' Firenze Mare published by Perrone. Together with him the blogger and friend Chiara Lecito.PlotDouble and elusive, elusive like the winds, changeable like a wave and fickle like a tide. Florence, never quiet city, has essentially aquatic nature. He cut out his boundaries by tearing the earth to the voracity of his sea without salt, the arno. The bridges, a link between this side and the other, anchor the neighborhoods that are imposed in the city emerging as islands. Who lives there knows that Florence must be crossed as you sail the sea; after all, everything in its streets has the memory of water: from the commemorative plaques of the floods, to the signs on the walls that indicate the floods of the river. Cross and delight of those who tried, perhaps in vain, to tame and understand it, Florence shows those who know how to welcome their iridescent aspect. Simone innocenti, through a straight tongue punctuated with irony, reveals the most secret soul of a city that has become a mask of itself. From Ponte Vecchio to the Biblioteca Marucelliana, from the Uffizi to Piazza Santa Croce, Florence sea traces a hidden itinerary that enters cafés where magazines of the twentieth century have come to life (Solaria, Campo di Marte and La Voce) and meets the protagonists who narrated the contradictory essence of the city of the lily, from Pratolini to Palazzeschi, from Luzi to Manganelli, from dante to bell. A literary journey through the archetypal places of the "Florentine", a geography that, not knowing how to choose between heaven and earth, has preferred to follow the exterminated enchantment of the sea becoming pure water.AuthorSimone Innocenti, wrote Puntazza (Erudite publisher) and his stories have appeared in various anthologies. He deals with crime and crime and has written for La Nazione, Il Giornale della Toscana, Avvenire, L'Espresso and Sette. He currently works at Corriere Fiorentino, regional back of the Corriere della Sera.
