The 2021 Mille Miglia was postponed to Juni 2021. I was able to take photo’s of it for the fourth time and on two days. One while the cars passed Arezzo in the thrird leg an the next day, when the car passed Monza.
After my first Mille Miglia experience, the 2017 version, that I watched when the contenders passed the Furlo Pass, a pass in the Via Flaminia where under Vespianus they already dug a tunnel for the road, I got realy hooked . See my first 2017 Mille Miglia Flickr Album
In 2018 I watched them pass just north of Pesaro when driving to Pesaro. Album on Flickr: 2018 Mille Miglia
In 2019 I watched them pass Corinaldo. Probably the most beautiful Borgo (little City) of the Marche, or maybe the whole of Italy.2019 Mille Miglia (Corinaldo)
The photo’s above were taken in Immola of an Arnolt Bertone Bristol Bolide of 1954.
Here co driven by a Dutch Prince, Prince Berhard of Orange, who is a real estate tycone by his own merit and owns the Zandvoort Circuit that will be home to a F1 race this year.
Very apt now that Dutch F1 driver Max Verstappen is number one of the 2021 F1 Driver’s championship.
I was in Ravenna, Italy, and visited this unusual round church of Santa Giustina. It is named after a 3rd century Martyr Giustina who was murdered because she was a christian under the Diocletianus ceasarship. It is built on the remains of an earlier place of woreship. It is located next to the Duomo.
In Rotterdam I saw an exhibition about real life like figures in Kunsthal Rotterdam.
Three wax arms protruding from the wall.
Maurizio Cattelan, in a mixture of Don Camillo, Pinocchio and court jester, always carries his pictorial statements to extremes so that the realistic depiction of well-practiced social and art world conventions tips over into the absurd and ridiculous. Rather theatrical and ephemeral in his actions, objects, and installations, but deploying ironic sophistication and unexpected turns, the artist spares no taboo in unmasking deceitfulness. Born in 1960 in the North Italian university town of Padua, he started his career in the eighties creating anti-functional design objects before deciding to work in the art world, which, in his own words, he found “much more appealing.” Since then, Cattelan has become an internationally renowned artist, even though he would not describe himself as one.
