Achilleas Souras’s life jackets designed for refugees

Arrives at Maxxi in Rome the igloo of young Achilleas Souras with a mission: to raise awareness of the world

Some stars of contemporary art have made their social and political cause and, more specifically, the hot topic of immigration and refugees

their battle horse and their media (and commercial) success at the international level. In the head, the Chinese He Weiwei,

who continues to occupy newspaper pages all over the world with his works

(a giant black raft is currently exhibited at the National Gallery in Prague) focused on immigration policies, the conditions of all refugees the world.

But even the ants in their little ones are pissed off.

The ant is called Achilleas Souras, Greek / English father, Thai / Austrian / Italian mother, lives in Barcelona and above

all has always been a great passion for Lego. The same passion that brought her to retrieve abandoned

life jackets on the island of Lesbos (there are over 400 thousand) and to build us an igloo of first-aid for refugees.

The objective is not so much that of recycling, which is, however, an important issue, but is aimed at raising awareness on the issue of refugees.

The first installment of the album “Save Our Souls” was exhibited at the Maritime Museum of Barcelona in 2016.

Then he traveled around the world, making his way to Cape Town, Milan, Los Angeles, New York and many other cities.

The young man was contacted by Patrizia Moroso and together they began to think of the creation of an igloo larger than the original project.

The new installation was inaugurated during the last Fuori Salone in Moroso’s showroom: a 3-meter-high igloo

made with 800 rescue vests abandoned and shipped thanks to the help of the mayor of Lesbos Island.

Next Steps? On June 20th, at the International Day of Refugees, Save Our Souls will be installed at

the same time as the Maxxi of Rome with

the patronage of UNHCR, the Tomorrow’s Museum of Rio de Janeiro and the El

Born Cultural Center in Barcelona for the week of Refugee will organize a series of events throughout the city.

From August 4, Save Our Souls will be exhibited at the Human Rights Museum in Winnipeg for 6 months. Small heroes grow up: applause!

Cannes Film Festival 2017. Lady Rihanna vs badgalriri

Where’s the pop star running hot selfies out of the Barbados Carnival and naked next to the mountain fireplace? The traces are gone.

Now there is a diva, always very sexy but with a very different tone

By taking part in the film festival with a collection of jewels of his creation for Chopard,

the metamorphosis in the act for a year to this part is complete: as Miley Cyrus already, Rihanna also comes in clothes or, better, in habits.

Just with provocative selfies and a bit raunchy at home or on holiday – there are, on Instagram, just a topless under

a suit and a lot of high boots – in Cannes only classic cut dresses with split or open shoulders.

Rihanna is no longer just a pop star, it’s all about the fashion system with different types of collaborations and independent

projects, from the sports line to the perfume and now to the jewelery.

The sex appeal is intense; Change the log. Moreover, age is also changing. At some point you stop being girls

and you become women. Do not misunderstand this, it does not mean covering yourself, but rather achieving one’s own personal taste

and personality, which is, at most, breaking, and then becoming self-expression.

You only know better. And this makes Rihanna in Cannes, on Croisette, these days, proves to be passed once

and for all by pop star diva, something that is less victim of tastes and time, an absolute (more) value.

Bono, Liz Taylor or Naomi Campbell. Helmut Newton’s exhibits include some original prints in many formats

distinguished its figure: the naked .

Icon, a book tells the story of Land Rover and Defender

Optional now and available from July, between unpublished photos and interviews the volume tells the (almost) 80 years of the mother of all Suv

On April 30, 1948, the first Land Rover, named I Series, was launched at the Amsterdam Motor Show and designed by Maurice Wilks,

founder of the Rover Company together with his brother Spencer, and particularly inspired by the American Jeep already in production since 1941.

The idea of ​​the Wilks brothers was to build a 4 × 4, obviously better than the Jeep, especially with regard to mechanics and,

as early as they were, they thought to introduce the roof, with the idea of ​​making the car appetizing even to Public and not just to the Armed

Forces.

Nonetheless, some features such as pillows to make passengers more comfortable, doors, heating and spare wheel were initially considered optional.

Series I followed about ten years after the Serie II and in 1971, the Serie III was launched. To get a million cars out of the Solihull factory

near Birmingham had to wait in 1976. Defender, born Land Rover One Ten first and Land Rover Ninety then, was introduced in 1983 while Discovery

came in 1989 And the Freelander in 1997.

As a preview of festivities for seventy years, the English brand announces the release of Icon, the first official book on the Defender models and

the Land Rover Series. The lion’s share of the publication makes the images, even unpublished,

along with exclusive interviews and a series of themed artwork commissioned for the occasion.

Among the celebrities who enjoyed the famous 4 × 4 English and who willingly gave testimony to the loyalty are Ralph Lauren and the

former captain of the South African rugby team, John Smit, in addition to Queen Elizabeth II.

6 luxury hotels to experience the charm of great literature

From the hotel where Oscar Wilde resided to where J. K. Rowling ended the Harry Potter saga. Here are the tips of Secret Escapes for a trip worthy of a novel

There are hotels that are sure to let the true literary fans pass.
Because their rooms seem to get out of the precious pages of the great classics, or because they hosted the most illustrious writers of all time just as they were

clinging to the writing of their masterpieces. And today, such events as Book Time in Milan and the Salone del Libro of Turin celebrate the link between books and

lifestyle, Secret Escapes – the online travel club specializing in flash sales for luxury hotels – gives us a list of 6 facilities Twin-wire with international

literature, accompanying us on a fantasy journey around Europe worthy of a novel. Let’s start, then, from Chapter I.

The Hotel Paris, Paris

This luxurious hotel in rue des Beaux-Arts, near the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Pré, was the last mansion of a certain Oscar Wilde.

And today he continues to pay tribute

to the great British writer with a room, number 13, designed by designer Jacques Garcia, with precious fabrics.

Wonderland house, Brighton
Are you also looking for the White River? This southern England hotel is entirely dedicated to Alice in the Land of Wonders and to the fantasy of Lewis Carroll.

At tea time you can sit at the table of Lepre Marzolina and Cappellaio Matto to celebrate your good-non-birthday, or you will have the opportunity to fall asleep in the

rooms dedicated to the Queen of Hearts.

Grand Hotel and Milan, Milan

Opened in 1863, this wonderful hotel in the heart of the Lombardy capital has hosted in its rooms the greatest protagonists of Italian and international culture.

The greatest writers, of course, but also Giuseppe Verdi, Maria Callas, Caruso, Luchino Visconti and Giorgio Strehler. Literature, music, cinema and theater, in short.

But also art: here was Tamara de Lempicka, who on the Grand Hotel’s letterhead wrote his letters to dear friend Gabriele D’Annunzio.

Linthwaite House Hotel, Bowness-on-Windermere

A unique access door to discover the beauty of the English Lake District and its very close connection with the poetry of the early nineteenth century.

From here, you can immerse yourself in the luxuriant nature that inspired William Wordsworth’s writings and even visit the houses where he stayed: like Dove Cottage,

now home to the Wordsworth Trust, which hosts meetings, insights and events each month in honor of the great poet.

The Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh

A magical hotel. And not just for the beauty of its rooms. In Room 552, writer J. K. Rowling wrote the final word on the original manuscript of Harry Potter and the

Deathly Hallows, the concluding chapter of his fortunate literary saga. The hotel mascot, in turn, is just an owl. A pure coincidence?

Brown’s Hotel, London

The five-star London jewel of Rocco Forte Hotels hosted Rudyard Kipling during the writing of his most famous novel, The Jungle Book.

And so the hotel’s presidential suite was dedicated to the British Nobel Prize, with a letter written by the author himself during one of his many stays at Brown’s.

Cherry on the cake? Those traveling with children will then receive a copy of the story of Mowgli, Balù & co.

Verizon Yahoo! and delete ‘swears’ of Oath

The merger between AOL and Yahoo! will create Oath, by which Verizon aims to challenge the dominance in Google searches and that in Facebook video content.

The future society will be open during the summer and the certainty is that there will be Marissa Meyer

yahoo-oath

The news was in the air and in the last hour came the official Yahoo! disappears from the digital world and in its place there will Oath. The new company will be

composed of the divisions of the first web company in history and content produced by AOL, the two former protagonists of the Internet passed in the last two years under

the auspices of Verizon.

The latter is the largest US wireless telecommunications provider in the space of twelve months has shelled out $ 13.2 billion for the acquisition of AOL (4.4 billion)

and Yahoo !, whose 4-digit, 83 billion dollars could get a discount at the photo finish due to the discovery of the violations suffered by the user account. An

important factor, that because of the strategic services of the Sunnyvale company’s own Yahoo! Mail, one of the most important channels along with Yahoo! Finance and

Yahoo! Sports, which attract a number of users exceeded one billion.

The major expense and future merger between the two services (which apparently should continue to operate independently, however, following a common path) is the move

with which Verizon hopes to create a digital giant capable of challenging the titans like Google and Facebook, absolute leader in research and fruition of video content

(and therefore revenue generated by advertisers).

A Verizon spokesman warned reporters that “will be one of the most groundbreaking companies in the digital arena.”

high ambition, complex and incomprehensible for now, because Oath will open only in summer. To confirm the new structure and the timing was the tweet Tim Armstrong, head

of AOL, who posted an eloquent message: “Consumers Billion +, 20+ Brands, Unstoppable Team. #TakeTheOath. Summer 2017 “.

It is no coincidence that the announcement has come from Armstrong, deputy to stay in the room of the Oath buttons, in contrast to Marissa Meyer, current CEO of Yahoo !,

which instead will be thrown out after failing the mission of revival. Losing your job is not however a tragedy for the female engineer, former Google executive, who

will receive a settlement of about $ 23 million.

Beyond the puns with the new company name (in English means oath swearing), Verizon is now awaiting the go ahead by the US authorities to close the acquisition of Yahoo

!.

That will no longer exist because even Yahoo! Japan and 15% stake in Alibaba while not flowing into Verizon will change destination, migrating Altaba.

The new statue of Cristiano Ronaldo, too bad to be true

The island of Madeira has decided to rename its airport with the player’s name. All went well, until it was not revealed the disturbing bronze bust dedicated to CR7

For Madeira (o Madera, to put Italian) Cristiano Ronaldo is practically a semi-god. In the city of Funchal, the island’s largest, the famous footballer has taken its first steps, and more recently has opened a luxury hotel of the Pestana chain CR7, as well as a new museum dedicated to his sporting achievements. So the local government has decided to further pay tribute by renaming the island’s airport with his name.

A nice gesture, crowned by a press conference with the same Cristiano Ronaldo was present along with Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa and Prime Minister Antonio Costa. In a speech of congratulations and a statement of pride, everything went smoothly, until the time when she was unveiled: the bronze statue in the likeness of the handsome footballer. Objectively too bad to be true.

It will be for those eyes too close, for that creepy smile, or maybe just for questionable similarity: the fact is that the bust in question, made by the artist Emanuel Santos, sparked the irony of the web, which responded to shots of photomontages and meme.

Some even called into question the good old Cape of Art Attack, the speaker bust of the famous children’s program. The author, in an interview with Globo Esporte, defended himself saying that the same Ronaldo has approved the statue and that basically “not even Jesus loved at all.” Matter of taste, then? Absolutely. But it finds it hard to believe that a lover of aesthetics as CR7 can (honestly) meet again in this funny statue.

If you are looking for a luxury villa that you will fall in love with, then Eros will be your ideal match.

This idyllic property close to Mykonos occupies a dream location above the radiant waters of Agios Lazaros Bay.

Its pristine white walls and romantic stonework marry effortlessly. Its spacious rooms are devoted solely to your pleasure. Dive into the tender embrace of your infinity pool or cast an adoring look over the Aegean Sea from the terrace.

This delightful villa will be at the heart of blissful days under the Greek sun.

Here in the exclusive Agios Lazaros district of Mykonos, you’ll find the perfect partner for an unforgettable Greek vacation. Eros brings you luxury laced with charm.

From your stone clad terrace, dotted with inviting sun loungers you can gaze out over the Aegean. Under the protection of a shady gazebo you can lose yourself in a novel or drink in the sensational views.

In the arms of the dazzling, azure pool you’ll feel at one with the shimmering sea which stretches out before you.

Eros is a lovingly updated, traditional Greek villa. Its whitewashed walls help deflect the heat of high summer. Its cool, calm interior rests under a canopy of traditional wooden beams.

Here, you can escape the heat and lounge on a comfortable designer sofa before heading through the elegant archway for dinner. The villa boasts two kitchens, one more formal, one next to the lower level staff quarters.

The deep blue Aegean Sea will be your everlasting companion at Eros.

The villa’s luxurious air-conditioned bedrooms make the most of this with panoramic views across the bay. From these clean, bright rooms you can throw open the terrace doors and feel the sea breeze and warmth of the sun.

Two of the rooms are en-suite while two more share a spacious bathroom. The fifth bedroom doubles up as staff quarters or as an idyllic hideaway for the kids.

On the very edge of the Aegean Sea, Eros will be your base for days in the sun and on the sand. A short drive takes you to Psarou beach. Its slender stretch of white sands is a little more exclusive than its neighbors but still bustles with life.

Wooden loungers and beach parasols create a vivid mosaic backed by restaurants and tavernas. A little further afield you can wander the maze of streets in Mykonos Town, watched over by the island’s iconic windmills.
