Piano City Milano 2022

May 20, 21 and 22 see the return of PIANO CITY MILANO 2022, with the eleventh edition of the most eagerly awaited piano festival of the year. Promoted and organized by Associazione Pianocity Milano and the Municipality of Milan, the event is recognized as one of Italy’s most prestigious music festivals.

216 unmissable concerts across the whole city of Milan with more than 300 artists performing in 100 magnificent locations will carry the audience with their pianos on a wonderful emotional musical journey. Piano City Milano is a unique event that brings institutions, associations and partners to collaborate in making Milan ever more dynamic, through an incredible number of concerts all over the city. Curated by Ponderosa Music & Art and Accapiù, the project boasts artistic direction from Ricciarda Belgiojoso and Titti Santini

“There are events that can speak about the city to the city: Piano City Milano is one of them” states the Mayor of Milan, Giuseppe Sala. “During this extraordinary three-day festival, the universal language of music will truly echo throughout Milan. Over 300 highly talented artists will perform and bring to life historical sites, remarkable new locations and emerging spaces that are under development. Unique, emotion-fuelled piano concerts allow the audience to discover how the city is changing”.

“How many places in the last ten years have we discovered by following the sound of a piano? How much music have we listened to and how many musicians have we discovered by attending a Piano City Milano event since the first edition in 2012? How many pianists and spectators have been able to share the joy of a live concert performance? These questions cannot be answered in numerical terms, but I am certain that the overall value of the interactions between music and the city is very high, and that this is the deepest sense of the event,” explains Tommaso Sacchi from the Milan Department for Culture. “This is why I am certain that this eleventh edition will once again be a great celebration for the whole city.”

“With Piano City Milano, a lively and dynamic city joins forces with music from all over the world. Pianos take their place in every neighborhood, from the gardens of Galleria d’Arte Moderna to beyond the edges of the city, in Milan’s new places and in other spaces that are under transformation and are being opened up for the first time for the festival. We offer new perspectives on Milan and on music, starting with the opening concert by the great Abdullah Ibrahim. This will be followed by an array of other remarkable Italian and international names with music created for the occasion, plus amazing six-piano and eight-hand events. The festival captivates the city with the sound of the piano and a huge thank you goes to the partners that make this extraordinary event possible,” concludes Ricciarda Belgiojoso, Artistic Director of Piano City Milano.

Piano City Milano is the result of an extraordinary collaboration between public institutions and private companies that allow free entrance to all concerts. It is an example of a remarkable synergy which this year brings together the Municipality of Milan, its  Department of Culture and main partners Intesa Sanpaolo and Corriere della Sera, along with Volvo, Hermès for talent-support, institutional partners Regione Lombardia and Fondazione Cariplo, charging partner Be Charge, Snai San Siro Racetrack, Università Bocconi, Conad as well as technical partners AIARP, Steinway & Sons, Fazioli, Griffa & Figli, Passadori Pianoforti, Tarantino Pianoforti, Tagliabue, Schimmel Pianos, Shigeru Kawai, Scorticati Pianoforti, Fabbrini and Barletta Pianoforti. The event’s media partners are Radio Monte Carlo, ViviMilano, Classica HD Sky, Wired, Zero, Lampoon, Pianosolo, Club Milano and Mi-Tomorrow.

There are also collaborations with a number of prestigious musical institutions such as Teatro alla Scala, Milan Conservatorio di Musica Giuseppe Verdi, the Civica Scuola di Musica Claudio Abbado, the Bergamo Conservatorio Gaetano Donizetti, Premio Venezia and Festival Milano Musica.

The festival returns to enhance Milan, inviting the public to discover new perspectives on one-of-a-kind contexts, old and new neighborhoods, the city’s symbolic locations, and places undergoing redevelopment, spaces that have been opened up especially for this occasion. Each concert has been created for its location, with musical genres that range from classical to pop and from jazz to electronic.

In addition to historic venues such as the GAM Gardens, Volvo Studio Milano, the Rotonda della Besana (home of the Milan Children’s Museum MUBA), Triennale Milano Teatro, the Museo Teatrale alla Scala, and the Snai San Siro Racetrack, the event will also be held in important new spaces such as the Bocconi Campus park, the ADI Design Museum, the Passeggiata Boris Pasternak at the Feltrinelli Foundation, Piazza Olivetti in the Symbiosis business district, and the garden of Via Ludovico di Breme in the Certosa District. There is a special focus on the outskirts of the city too, with concerts in the MM courtyards, in the fields of Vaiano Valle, in the Adriano district, in barn conversions turned cultural centers, and at Casa Enzo Jannacci, Europe’s largest social support center. Plus, there will also be music in the parks of Villa Finzi, Chiesa Rossa, Parco delle Cave and Parco Lambro.

Metallic Topical Tattoos

By Armon Hayes

It’s really all about the little things, especially when it comes to your outfit. Everyone has that sense when a look is complete, there’s just a feeling about it where being excited and proud merge. That point where you are thrilled to be seen in your perfectly completed ensemble that you can just sit back and let the compliments flock in. There’s a newly recognized beauty and fashion accessory making this all happen, temporary tattoos. 

Metallic temporary tattoos are the best way to enhance your look with ease and are a huge fan favorite for those who attend music festivals, the beach, or other outdoors events. You can adorn Topical Tattoos with your beach day look as shiny tattoo bracelets and body jewelry, or use them as delicate design accents to complete your look regardless if it’s a sexy date night or Sunday brunch with friends. Topical Tattoos are completely safe and non-toxic, making them fun for kids and families too!

Topical Tattoo launched during COVID when owner, Melissa Bell, started experimenting with accessories to boost her mood while being stuck at home. She thought that the simplicity of the items provided a lot. She could enjoy them just for herself, regardless if anyone else would see her decked out in the temporary tattoos or not. Starting a shop isn’t an easy or quick accomplishment though, especially when you have a current career you’re committed to for the majority of the week days and nights. Etsy seemed like a good platform to launch while working on her website, testing appropriate markets, analyzing customer preferences, and deciding new designs and styles to add to her storefront.

With everyone getting back out and the world opening up again, everyone is hunting for a way to amp-up their outfit with minimum effort items that add a dramatic effect. Temporary tattoos are the quintessential beauty and fashion accessory that won’t break the bank but embellishes any look depending on the color and design of the temporary tattoos from the various metallic, black, and white tattoo color options to choose from. We all remember playing with sticker-like tattoos when we were younger. It’s no lie that we all know how long temporary tattoos have really been in our lives. Now we have a fresh new take – more unique and stylized choices for fun or glamorous looks. 

Just take a look at the celebrities embellishing their moisturized skin with these gypsy-styled, minimalist pho bracelets, necklaces and designs. The women we idolize for their fashion sense have all dawned these boho tattoos, including celebrities like Beyonce, Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Taylor Swift to name a few. They’re shockingly stunning and delicate when placed on the collar bone, kiss the upper cheeks, or get delicately pressed on the stomach and thighs– anywhere on your body works! 

You can pair a metallic choker tattoo with a soft gold chain link necklace. You could also place a vertical design running down the center of your chest starting at your center collarbone. Then place a simple necklace that also graces the collarbone and just barely overlaps the metallic temporary tattoo.  

Everything about Topical Tattoo’s fashion and beauty accessories has been carefully planned right down to the packaging. Topical Tattoos knows that great brands provide an ample number of sheets per order, which is precisely why they offer 5 sheets in every order as customers need options for each different look they put together. There are so many possibilities to upgrade your outfit for any situation. Luckily, now is the time to get started playing with your look in new ways, while supporting a small business shop.

Woodstock Music × Art Fair

The Museum at Bethel Woods calls for 1969 Woodstock attendees to offer oral histories for upcoming exhibit

The Museum at Bethel Woods, the National Register Historic Site of the 1969 Woodstock Music & Art Fair, is working on compiling an archive of oral histories of Woodstock from the people who experienced it firsthand. The Museum is asking festival alumni to connect, and arrange for their stories to be heard and recorded. The goal is for these combined narratives to tell the untold story of the festival, preserving them for generations to come.

“Realizing the average age of Woodstock attendees is 75 years old, now is the time to find the lost stories of the festival and save their place in history,” said Neal V. Hitch, Senior Curator, The Museum at Bethel Woods. “In order for the impact of Woodstock to be felt 100 years from now, collecting oral histories of this iconic festival is critical. It is our goal to find as many attendees as possible and document their firsthand experiences, which will also inspire the next generation of young artists, musicians, and music lovers.”

If you or someone you know was one of the almost half a million people who stood in the crowd of Max Yasgur’s farm listening to Santana, swam in Fillippini’s Pond, left a note on the Message Tree, or got stuck in traffic on 17B, The Museum at Bethel Woods wants to hear from you. With the goal to gather at least 4,500 oral histories, every perspective is valuable in rounding out the picture of the greatest festival of all time.

The award-winning 7,000 square foot Museum at Bethel Woods sits on the 800-acre campus of the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts–the site of the Woodstock festival. Its permanent collection and special exhibits are a window to the 1960’s and the music cultural phenomenon. Bethel Woods is dedicated to preserving and presenting that history in a way that captivates audiences across generations.

About Bethel Woods Center for the Arts

Bethel Woods Center for the Arts inspires, educates, and empowers individuals through the arts and humanities by presenting a diverse selection of culturally-rich performances, popular artists, and community and educational programming.
