Gae Aulenti, and why it takes only a few shelves for books and some pillows to make a home.

"My advice on how to make a home is not to have anything, just a few shelves for books, some pillows to sit on…"
(Gae Aulenti)
What does it take to make a home? Not much. Gae Aulenti, one of the first and few Italian women architects, who just died in Milano, was right: we don’t need much. I only need my favourite cup and a soft warm blanket.

Gae Aulenti is, for me, the Musée d'Orsay. One of the first museums in unexpected places. Because sometimes museums are homes too.

Rest in peace, thanks for the magnificent design of the Musee d’Orsay

Yes, I write. Yes, I believe in the magic of words. That’s why you’ll find me here, every Friday: Lisa “globish”!

I believe in the magic of words, and I believe Piazza Unità in Trieste, where I was born, is the most romantic square in the world. (And yes, it’s in Italy, proudly facing the sea). I love roses in every form. And, of course, I do love my blog, expecially now that I can carry it around on my iPhone.
