…meaning what Olimpia Zagnoli has in her mind.

Just for this season available for him and her…  :)

Ex-Otago on vacation

by MAS™ 13 April 2011

But Marco Mucig this time is certainly not taking them to Costa Rica to shoot the video for the homonymous song from their new album “Mezze Stagioni”.

The well proven collaboration between Marco and Ex Otago confirms in an actual “feature film”, delicate and dreamy just like their lyrics.

A snow adventure where Costa Rica is an ideal destination, it’s a reminder for where we’re coming from and why we’re going, where we’re going.

How can one not love the fan produced band?

A four hands project from Rise Above and Scarful on iconology, in collaboration with Profile Expo & Grab Magazine.

The two roman artists realize a multidisciplinary concept in which they describe themselves today, through simbologies in classical culture, encoded four hundred years ago by Cesare Ripa, che fin dal 1593 rationally classifies the numerous allegories and simbologies layered up in centuries of cultural history.

Figures coming from classicism, religion, philosophy as well as arts, crafts or simple popular traditions, reviewed in an encyclopedical work in which in which figures and oggetti simbolici vengono accorpati e rielaborati con sapienza.

An impressive overview of iconographic figures, each one describing a modus, a virtue, a phisical or mind place , an attitude or character.

From december 23, 2010 to january 10, 2011 on 
MON · TUE · FRI · SAT, from 10am to 7pm, at Profile Expo – Piazza di Spagna, 51 · Roma.
