.... one of the most romantic kiss in art....
this photo was taken on the facade of the main building of The Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan on which a reproduction of the famous painting was placed while I was walking there....
the original is located inside the Pinacoteca.....
...
l bacio ( The Kiss) is an 1859 painting by the Italian artist Francesco Hayez. It is possibly his best known work. This painting conveys the main features of Italian Romanticism and has come to represent the spirit of the Risorgimento. It was commissioned by Alfonso Maria Visconti di Saliceto, who donated to the Pinacoteca di Brera after his death.

is located in The Pinacoteca di Brera ("Brera Art Gallery") is the main public gallery for paintings in Milan, Italy. It contains one of the foremost collections of Italian paintings, an outgrowth of the cultural program of the Brera Academy, which shares the site in the Palazzo Brera.

ABOUT MOLINO STUCKY:
The story of a dynasty: three generations of Swiss millers involved in Venetian history. First Hans Stucky, a poor immigrant who travelled to Venice by foot to work in the only existing mill in town. He arrived in time to take part in the heroic 1848 Revolution. His son Giovanni built a huge mill on the Giudecca Island, started a flourishing international trade of wheat, flour and pasta, and became the richest man in Venice, living in the very sumptuous Palazzo Grassi. He was murdered in 1910 by a former worker. His death caused scandal and great mourning. Giancarlo, his son, enlarged his father’s business but was ruined in the financial crash of the Thirties. Victim of the economic mismanagements of Mussolini and of the hostility and greed of some personalities of the fascist regime, he lost all his fortune. In this context the reader gets a glimpse of a hundred years of Italian-Venetian history and economy. The mill has recently been turned into a hotel.
On the north-west bank of Giudecca island, a 10-minute boat ride away from St Mark’s Square. The hotel’s imposing red-brick, neo-gothic façade dominates the waterfront, and front rooms have superb views of the city’s spires and domes, across the narrow stretch of water.
We like
The history. Dating from 1884, the building started life as a flour mill owned by Giovanni Stucky. Employing 1,500 people, it produced 50 tons of flour daily and included a pasta factory. Abandoned in 1955, it was left to dereliction, before conversion to a luxury hotel in 2007. Steel columns, girders, wood-beamed ceilings and factory floor-style, open-plan public areas are a reminder of its past. Plus points include a rooftop swimming pool and large spa.

Origins
The story of Peck, a reference point in good food and wine for gourmand all over the world, began in 1883.
It was in Milan - at that time seen as the “economic capital” of Italy - that Franz Peck, a resourceful salumi maker from Prague, decided to open a workshop of German-style cured and smoked meats in Via Orefici 2, with the ambition of turning it into the most successful deli shop in town.
In no time, Peck achieved his goal, becoming one of the city’s cult locations.

....with a touch of Arabian style....
... imagine for one moment to enter in one of the most interesting shop of Perfumery and feeling the magic sensation to be somewhere where time and space are not real...
te magic sensation to be somewhere far in a wonderful atmosphere of magic and enchantment....colors, scents, everything takes you away in the magic tale of far far lands...
close your eyes and try to feel this magic atmosphere smelling a perfume, many perfumes ....


The Merchant Of Venice represents the Art of Perfumery of Venice. It draws attention to the everlasting role of the city as an essential force in the perfumery tradition throughout the world, and it is intended to highlight the tradition that made Italy, and particularly Venice, central to the history of perfumery. The Merchant Of Venice is a luxury line that offers a large assortment of exclusive Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette, along with body care and household products and accessories.

The line is inspired by the “Mude,” the maritime trade routes that covered a very large area from Asia to Africa, and on to Europe as far as the Northern Seas. The “Mude” started from Venice and reached many different harbours, which in turn were the destination of other commercial routes. These ports were the exchange centres for raw materials and finished products.

This system enabled the Republic of Venice to acquire the knowledge and raw materials that otherwise it could not directly attain from within its own mainland. Through master craftsmen such as the muschieri (perfumers), venditori de polvere di Cipro (Cyprus powder haberdashers) and the saoneri (soap makers), new techniques of production were invented that made the Venetian perfumes and cosmetics highly sought after products in all the Royal Courts of Europe.
