WALTER NESTOLA actor and director

WALTER NESTOLA actor and director - Gabriella Ruggieri & partners

 I had the pleasure of meeting Walter Nestola in Crema, during the screening of the film "Briciole sul mare" (of which he is a director and actor) with donations collected for the Red Cross of Crema for the earthquake victims of Accumoli.

There were many people, as you can imagine, including the film's producer Nino Chirco, Mayor Stefania Bonaldi, and some journalists. Also for this 1blog4u thanks Walter Nestola for making himself available, but... it doesn’t end here.

I am offering "special thanks" because that day Walter Nestola had a fever, he was not well, and yet, without batting an eyelid, answered all my questions, even the most stupid ones (being that I am not an expert in cinematography), he allowed us to photograph him while playing with the camera lens and... my name is Gabriella Ruggieri, not Giovanni Gastel... well, for a long series of details and nuances that I personally like to describe as good manners, class and elegance: thanks Walter Nestola!

I went to see the international photographer GIOVANNI GASTEL's photo exhibition "My Ladies".

Born in Italy, but known all over the world. Giovanni Gastel can’t be summed up with two words, on his art there is so much material that you can write quietly a degree thesis.

In Milan, right in between jobs, during a break you might feel like having hit the lottery and run into the filming of "something".

Maybe a commercial spot?

URBANSOLID street art 3D

URBANSOLID street art 3D - Gabriella Ruggieri & partners


I am not your typical street art lover. Or I shall clarify I don’t like jerks!
I know that “street art” is a generic term and that there are various subcategories, based on different techniques, origin, etc., but for non-art experts, common people as trivial and simple as I am, street art, in most cases simply means… those who cram the wall of a house, the door, a business entrance, historical monuments, etc., with your senseless graffiti made with a spray paint can.
However we can’t really assume that is the case for all of it. In fact we shall not generalize.
Let’s stress and emphasize that not all street artists are as such.
Many (and I would love to think it’s most of them) put their talent at the service of people and cities. Have you ever thought about it?
