Sono l’Autunno!
✨
Tra le molte statue che abitano il Teatro Massimo dell’Isola Bella, ci sono anche io.
In piedi, appoggiato a un tronco, reggo un tralcio di vite e saluto l’estate, ormai lontana che alla mia destra tiene in mano un fascio di spighe.
🌾 
Mi avete visto?

I'm Autumn!
✨
You’ll find me among the many statues that inhabit the Teatro Massimo [Maximum Theater] of Isola Bella.
Standing on a log, I hold a vine branch and bid farewell to Summer, who, in the distance, holds a bundle of wheat.
🌾 
Have you visited me?

Cos’è la perfezione?
.
Vitaliano VI credeva che fosse una condizione necessaria, propria della natura, a cui aspirare.
L’ha ricercata in ogni dettaglio del suo progetto, dagli arredi e le decorazioni di Palazzo Borromeo ai richiami tra gli interni e il giardino dell’Isola Bella.
.
“Vitaliano VI. L’invenzione dell’Isola Bella” in mostra fino al 1° Novembre.

What is perfection?
.
Vitaliano VI believed that it is a necessary condition, essential to nature, and something we should all aspire to.
.
He aimed for perfection in every detail of his project, from the furnishings and decorations of Palazzo Borromeo to the references between the interior and the garden of Isola Bella.
.
"Vitaliano VI: The Invention of Isola Bella" is on display until November 1st.

✨ 
In una dimora principesca come Palazzo Borromeo non poteva mancare la Sala del trono.
👑
Sopra il trono settecentesco, acquistato a Venezia da Maria Borromeo D'Adda, sei grandi statue dorate in legno sorreggono la volta decorata da stucchi.
L’intera sala è un tripudio barocco: dagli stipi in tartaruga alle decorazioni a parete in oro e azzurro. Un’esaltazione dell’insolito e dello stravagante con cui Vitaliano VI voleva superare le corti di Mantova e Genova.

✨
In a royal residence like Palazzo Borromeo, the inclusion of a Throne Room is essential.
👑
Above the eighteenth-century throne, purchased in Venice by Maria Borromeo D'Adda, six large gilded wooden statues support the vault, decorated with stuccoes.
The entire room is a Baroque triumph: from the tortoiseshell cabinets to the gold and blue wall decorations. An exaltation of the unusual and extravagant, with which Vitaliano VI wanted to outdo the courts of Mantua and Genoa.

"Rompi le regole, perdona in fretta, bacia piano, ama profondamente, ridi a crepapelle e non rimpiangere mai ciò che ti ha fatto sorridere." 
.
Così scriveva Mark Twain, invitandoci a vivere intensamente ogni giorno.
.
Con le sue parole vi auguriamo una buona Giornata Mondiale del Sorriso!

"Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss softly, love deeply, laugh and never regret what made you smile."
