TANKWA TOWN In the semidesert Karoo – halfway along the R355, a 250km untarred road between Calvinia and Ceres in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa (that means on the longest stretch in the country without petrol stations, nearby assistance, phone signal) – there is a magic place: a temporary city that every year since 2007 appears and disappears in just one week.
SEETIES & THE UNIVERSE. “On the scale of a galaxy, let alone the universe, we’re smaller than we can readily comprehend, but we do have the capacity to wonder, to question, to explore, to investigate, and to imagine. So the next time you stand gazing up at the night sky, take a moment to think about the enormity of what is beyond your vision, out in the dark spaces between the stars.”

PALERMO “Why her? Why give her a space? Some people thought I was looking for a space to show my photos but here you won’t see my works. The ambition is much higher. I want to see others grow, I want to discover talents and cultivate them. And so what you will see won’t be my photos but, near the door of my studio, a red neon made by Riccardo Gueci: picchì idda?”
PALERMO Ballarò, Capo, Kalsa, Vucciria. In questo post, per ciascun quartiere trovate una foto, una breve introduzione e qualche curiosità. Più una raccomandazione: esplorateli tutti e quattro, perdetevi per le loro piazze, vie e viuzze. E non dimenticate mai di alzare lo sguardo.
PRATO-MILANO Un video di un minuto come ricordo di quando abbiamo attraversato l’Appennino tosco-emiliano in Ape Calessino per riportare la nostra amata The GIRA a casa (dopo le avventure pratesi dei #CCTravellers2016). Era quasi Natale e faceva freddissimo ma ci siamo comunque divertiti come matti!!!
WORLD Travelling is all around us but it is easy to forget what Airports can do for us emotionally aside from making the world a smaller place.
PARIS without its Tour Eiffel. Impossible even to imagine, today. But if some French intellectuals would have won their battle, the Iron Lady (Dame de Fer) might have survived for maybe just twenty years or maybe less. The French originally hated it. If not all, certainly an important group of high-profile artists, thinkers and creatives who signed a petition to protest against the tower during its construction. They expressed all their hate towards this “useless” and “monstrous” monument with a love letter to their City of Lights (Ville Lumière) and finesse, published on Valentine’s Day 1887.
BERLIN can be majesty, elegance, history. Or subculture, street art, a big mess. Browse through the gallery by Sofia Erto!

CANADA We love “Seeties” but we also love Nature and we want to show you this timelapse short film made into the Canadian wild and filmed by Florian Nick: “By making this project, I want to raise awareness of our wonderful planet Earth which we have the privilege to be part of. That’s why we have to take responsibility for it – for the place where we are alive.”
