The #loveproject arrives in Siena

The #loveproject arrives in Siena

The Love Project in the cradle of the Renaissance - The plan is to place two paintings in five of the most important piazzas of Tuscany’s five most important cities: Florence, Siena, Livorno, Pisa and Lucca. Anyone who wants them can take them away, at no cost. Absolutely free. This month: Siena starting from the Pretto Prosciutteria and finishing at the Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena - the oldest surviving bank in the world.

The most conventional chapter in the saga of the Love Project was the exhibition that opened it — and even that had its unusual twists. On the 13th and the 14th of June last year, the well-known local artists Keane and Fabrizio da Prato inaugurated a joint exhibition of 100 paintings. The venue was not a gallery in Barga or Lucca, […]

Artists at Work : #loveproject in Livorno

The plan, says Keane, is to “place two paintings from each of us in five of the most important piazzas of Tuscany’s five most important cities: Florence, Siena, Livorno, Pisa and Lucca. Anyone who wants them can take them away, at no cost. Absolutely free.”

The rub is that no one will be informed exactly where — or when — the gratis works will appear for the taking. The schedule will be stretched out over at least six months. If things go according to plan, the artists or their representatives will be on hand to watch what happens. Da Prato […]

So the earth spins round the sun, the seasons change and certain traditions once more are kept.

How is Biroldo made?

How is Biroldo made?

This unusual blood sausage is made using the lean pig’s head, giving it a soft consistency. After boiling the head for three hours, it is deboned and mixed with a little blood, salt, pepper and spices: primarily wild fennel, but also nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and star anise. The mixture is then packed into casings. Before […]
