Cyclades, pyramid discovery carved from the sea: “It was imagined by an unknown civilization”

A real pyramid built in an era far from an advanced civilization preceding the Minoan one. This is what was discovered on the uninhabited island of Keros, in the Cyclades, in Greece, by a group of researchers from the University of Cambridge in Great Britain. The rocky promontory, whose name is Daskalio, was actually modeled in the shape of a pyramid by nature and by the atmospheric agents that had fallen on it over the centuries, as if it had been the hand of a sculptor. Yet, until today, nobody knew who had created the terraces that allow you to get to the top of the great rock.

Daskalio rises upwards from the sea. The researchers believe that it is a sanctuary and although today it is completely autonomous and detached, probably three thousand years before Christ was connected to the nearby island of Keros through a natural bridge made of rock. Along the pyramid made of earth and stone, behind the terracing, traces of engineering works and artifacts dating back to ages that preceded by many centuries the Minoan civilization have been found, the Cretan culture of the Bronze Age flourished approximately from 2000 BC. to 1450 BC

According to the excavation director, Michael Boyd, these artifacts illustrate the quality and state of advancement of the unknown civilization that would make them: “There are few experts in the manufacture of metal objects in such an early age, in which the material even before it was scarce. ” Then, under the research of the British university, the previous hypothesis was shattered. So archaeologists at work have found two sites for metal processing and a complex network of drainage channels, built a thousand years before the Palace of Knossos in Crete. It took about ten years of work to arrive at this conclusion, the findings found also concern two workshops with several remains of metalwork with blacksmith equipment, a terracotta oven, a lead ax, a mold for daggers and ceramic fragments.

Mykonos is the island from fashion here is where they go fashionistas

Beautiful beaches of tranquility and relaxation and nightlife. Mykonos, enclosed in the Cyclades archipelago, has a double face: beach paradise

The shoe designer Bruno Bordese is a true regulars (there goes 85). “The beauty of Mykonos is the all-day beach: you can go to the beach in the morning and stay until the aperitif, but also for dinner and after dinner. There are places equipped at all hours: number one is Alemàgou Beach Bar Restaurant in Ftelia. Cosmopolitan, elegant, with boho-chic sessions, here you can breathe a unique atmosphere, the food is excellent and “risks” to meet many designers, from Peter Dundas (creative director Roberto Cavalli) Kris Van Assche until Olivier Rousteing, head of Balmain designer. If I want to enjoy a cocktail at sunset with great DJ sets I choose the beach club restaurant Scorpios, from design inspired by nature. If I want to isolate myself from everything I go to dinner at Kiki’s Tavern (you can not book!), A hut on the beach of Agios Sostis in typical greek style and no electricity where you prepare meat and fish on a grill wood. It’s so isolated, hidden and suggestive that is already a haven for VIPs. There I even met Madonna. “

Forget home, sexy campaign by Oliviero Toscani for Starhotels

All together, passionately and naked under the duvet and the desire to forget for a few days their domestic routine. The photos
Five smiling girls, young, beautiful and extremely varied somatic traits. A duvet (only that) to cover it and an inscription: “Forget home”, forget about home. The idea behind the new advertising campaign that Oliviero Toscani has created for the Starhotels group is to create a mix of intimacy, warmth and lightheartedness. Adding to all a hint of sensuality. “Starhotels not communicate often – says the President and Ad Group Elisabetta Fabri – but when it does it is relying on big names in international photography: after Helmut Newton, this time it’s up to Oliviero Toscani. For this campaign we decided to return to the essentials, the first things that we offer to our customers the bed and our hospitality. We wanted to represent all the joy that we can be in traveling. ”

“It was interesting to meet the challenge that gave me Elizabeth – says the celebrated advertising – especially to get out from the hotel communications stereotypes, which usually show the lobby, the suite, the pool.

My advertising is essentially an invitation to leave the house. Here then is the claim, Forget home. ” Forget the house and the worries of everyday life, in short, to be pampered by the hotel services. And get lost under the duvet.
