CCT-Palermo2018-Manifesta12-cover

PALERMO In the Sicilian capital to explore and tell the city together with the #CCTravellers2018 – we also took part in the opening days of #Manifesta12 dedicated to the press… So, before publishing and sharing the stories by the #CCTravellers who were in particular inspired by the European nomadic biennial for contemporary art, we’ll try to tell you in brief what #MANIFESTA is in its 12th edition (open until 4th November 2018). #SeeCity #Palermo2018

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.

Prato by Jennifer & Mélody - cover post

PRATO “Some travels seem more important than others, we would even say more remarkable. No need to go far far far away to find beauty and to discover great things in the world. It’s what we have learned while we were visiting Prato. An apparently tiny city in Tuscany, 20 minutes away from Florence. Tiny in appearance, but big with all the things it offers, in terms of history, food, and obviously of culture. As we thought would be just a classic trip about as we usually do, discovered way more.” Here is the story by Jennifer Padjemi & Mélody Thomas, Parisian journalists and friends, founders of What’s Good Newsletter! #CCTravellers2016
