i got the cal!

i know my new post should have been a proper review of the cavalli advertisment, but this morning i finally got the parcel i was waiting for since christmas and it was exactly the present i wished it could be: the 2009 pirelli calendar! 🙂
i want to write here a BIG THANK YOU to the international friend who had this very kind nice lovely idea and sent this totally unexpected present to me! now i feel like a vip (lol!!!) and the multidaria in the pond page is on the wall in front of me, just above the italian literature encyclopedia.

let me say the cal is rather huge and every comment i made about it is confirmed after i can watch it *live*: daria pics are really the best thing. not all of them, those with fontana in the dust are rather dubious in my opinion, but those in the pond and the one with the dead bird are beautiful. this cal looks confused and its message is a messy pastiche. i think the only way to save it is to try to see a sort of mad visionarism, but as i said before symbolism is very low and poor. maybe beard is simply a photograph who lost his creativity… in my opinion, again, only daria’s allegoric body is strong in this project.
pirelli is very strict about copyright, so for the moment i just scanned a detail of a january extra. it’s difficult to scan it, let’s see if i’ll do better in the next days.
