Raccontare com’è nato questo servizio non è facile perché, like all works of creativity, si tratta di una miscela di tante piccole cose, let's call them insights, sensations ranging politely and neatly to join our knowledge, to our experiences of personal and professional life (said by those who know …of Culture!).

Di fatto eravamo molto indecisi su quale tema affrontare. They raged ideas from ” street mood” al ” life style”. Ma io, che non sono abbastanza anglosassone, ho pensato: "I almost'm going to take a walk and I talk with my bartender trust.

So, I went to “Yeast” a nice wine bar in via Serra in the heart of Bolognina, Quarter of the Old Bologna. After the second beer came the idea ….."Bolognina style" !

Abito in questo fantastico quartiere in super evoluzione da più di dieci anni. The newspapers talk badly "that neighborhood where they live those dangerous immigrants". Ottimo, it seemed appropriate to talk. The idea was to visually attend the interiors of these high rises 50s that virtually dominate the neighborhood. Trovare un perfetto appartamento e farci vivere la moda “Bolognina style”. A little 'half-way between the memory and the new trend of self-care and pleasure of things playing with the past but with a contemporary and precious clothes.

Then concentrated try to find the right location. “Possiamo andare da Barbara”. “Da chi?"" A Casa di Barbara. "" Who is Barbara?” “No, si chiama proprio così: La casa di Barbara. ” At that point the beers had done a really good job. But you're saying I told my barista: io bevo ma tu sei “andato”!

Quindi con calma l’amico mi spiega che La casa di Barbara è un bed&breakfast o meglio, as Barbara says (che esiste davvero), an apartment for short stays but also an art gallery and living space.

After entering into this apartment on the fourth floor of Via Serra and having met Franco and Barbara, Well, il lavoro era già fatto. My super director Nicola Luccarini had approved the choice papal bull: "On Wednesday we will all be here, truccatrice, hairdressers, stylist, modella, assistants etc.. Preparatevi a una piccola invasione.”

Franco e Barbara, veramente splendidi, se la sono goduta tutta. Non si sono persi una scena. The work took a strange turn because Barbara was not shooting in shooting so strict woman 50s but more an Anna Magnani (pass me the ambitious comparison) più maliziosa ed ammiccante. Eroticism was on the door but never went to play with us. Mi sono divertito molto. I am convinced that everyone has actually participated in this work actively, leaving something of their way of being and feeling things, on the set.
