Street Inn | Bed, Street Art and Breakfast

Hai in programma di passare una giornata a Firenze?
Fai pure serata e, lasciamelo dire, non perdere altro tempo a cercare hotel o bed&breakfast e prenota direttamente allo Street Inn.  E qui giustamente mi dirai, ma che cosa ne sai tu dei B&B di Firenze se ci abiti?  E invece credimi, lo conosco molto bene questo posto. Ho girato dentro tutte le stanze e ti garantisco che se dovessi dirti qual è la mia preferita, non saprei davvero quale scegliere.

In che senso? Beh perché ogni stanza è stata data in mano ad uno street artist per renderla unica, e mica stiamo parlando di artisti qualsiasi. Le 5 stanze sono state assegnate ad Ache77, Exit Enter , Hopnn, RMOGRL8120 e Urto.

Ma gli artisti hanno anche disseminato lavori in tutti gli spazi disponibili. Ci sono gli adesivi di Stelle Confuse, i murales di NiAn e Jamesboy e gli svolazzanti Post It di Post-Hit.

E come ti dicevo, lo conosco bene questo posto, perché Silvia, la proprietaria, con cui NON puoi non fare amicizia, organizza sempre degli eventi, mostre e serate fuori dal comune ed è proprio ad una di queste serate che l’ho conosciuta. ❤

Insomma, se sei fan dell’arte in generale e più che mai della street art, se ti piacciono i posti fighi e, diciamocelo, se ti piace anche l’idea di alloggiare a cinque minuti a piedi dalla stazione Santa Maria Novella e a massimo venti a piedi dal Duomo, ricordati di questo posto, mi ringrazierai poi.

Io non vedo l’ora che inaugurino una nuova mostra di qualche artista emergente e chissà, magari ci becchiamo lì! Intanto guardati tutte le foto che ho fatto l’ultima volta che sono andata, che ne pensi? Non ti sembra una figata stratosferica? 😍

Jumping into 2018 while exploring Italy

FINALLY the 2017 is gone. Lol, just kidding.

2017 was not bad year for me, at all, but December is always a terrible month in my opinion. Plus I really needed some holidays and some time for me.

Like a lot.

Don’t know about you, but sometimes I need to get completely away and do something that can restore my will power, my inspiration, myself. Most of the time this means travelling and roaming somewhere, in order to free my mind and gain back that voice in my head that whispers “Get back to your work, now!”.

Right now is actually screaming.

But let’s take this from the beginning. Me and my mate, with our almost nonexistent budget tried to book some flight or holiday. Of course everything is terribly expensive during the new year’s period, so we just decided to jump in the car and visit Umbria, one region of our beautiful country.

Being broke has a good side: it makes choices quite easy to make.
So we packed our things, our enthusiasm and we started our trip.
Pynch were now on the road:

Love, is what they showed.

Weeks ago I just told you half of the story.
After my weekend in Turin, I took a train to get to Padova, because another amazing concert was waiting for me there.

When I heard that Hundred Waters were playing at MAME Club I thought it was a joke, but when I checked, tickets were actually available.
13.50€… seriously? Again, I thought it was probably fake.
So I did what everyone would do, I googled it and it turned out it was actually true: how could I not go?
First and only one date in Italy. 
I had to.

So that’s what I did,  I took my backpack and went there. No regret.

The opening band was HÅN, I didn’t know her music and it was a very pleasant discover.

Then Hundred Waters, one of my favorite bands started playing.
What happened was both unexpected and beautiful.

Roam through Bologna, you will stumble upon beauty.

One of the things I like the most, is to get lost trough the streets of cities I don’t know that much. Well, Bologna is not an unknown place to me but since I never lived there, it still taste a little bit like there’s always something new you’re about to discover around that corner or the other one and somehow that’s exactly what happened. While I was wandering with my friend, the poster you can see here above my words got our attention. This is how I got to know the Cheap Festival
