This year had everything, good memories, challenges, lessons, new variants, depending on your frame of mind. I’m grateful that after a long time, I was able to travel to Vienna, go on a journey in Tuscany, attend a concert in Berlin, to enjoy a meal at a restaurant in Bologna, meet friends in Madrid or visit a museum in Bucharest.
Spending some time in 2021 in dear Bucharest was wonderful, a city that has changed since I was living there, as is only natural. Many (more) reasons to visit Romania, besides family and friends, are to swim in the Black Sea, the Carpathian mountains, or events as the Romanian Design week and the G.Enescu Music Festival.

Revisited a dear place. August. The Old meets the New in Vienna. Always a pleasure to return to this wonderful city, with something new to discover.
Vienna Museum Quarter has a new rooftop bar and platform, Libelle MQ, at the top of the Leopold Museum.

Tuscany is so beautiful, it has to be seen to be believed. The city of Florence is famous for its overwhelming art galleries and Michelangelo Renaissance sculptures in marble, but still, I was struck by the colors of vineyards, or sounds of the cypresses. Or the scented air with notes of leather, olive oil and amber.

Art inspired from Romanian mythology and traditions and carved in wood, stone and later bronze. From Târgu-Jiu and Bucharest to Paris, via Munich until New York. Every year, on the 19th of February, a tribute is paid to honor the memory of genius artist Constantin Brâncuși, pioneer of modern sculpture. But the Brâncuși Week starts today.

Berlin has “Unter den Linden” and the central historical boulevard feels as an old postcard. The name comes from the linden trees that lined the boulevard. It starts at the Brandenburg Gate and ends at Berliner Dom, passing by the Komische Oper, Zeughaus, Bebelplatz, Staatsoper, and very soon, the Humboldt Forum (reconstructed Berlin Palace).

One thing I do really well is exaggerate. The previous weekend diary included many galleries, museums, a lot of coffee stops and masks thanks to a duo: 9th edition of Berlin Art Week and Galleries Weekend. This if we don’t count also the 11th Berlin Biennale for contemporary art, and all lighted up together by the Festival of Lights. I like Septembers.

Two festivals are lightning the mood in October. Because one was not enough. „The Festival of Lights“ and „Berlin Leuchtet / Berlin Illuminated“.

I feel that I already mix up in my head cities seen in recent months, Strasbourg, Colmar, Baden Baden, Luzern, Zürich, and now Basel and Freiburg, so I must stop a minute to reflect and write some thoughts about each.

An event that started in Paris is now almost everywhere in the world. Every year, around the 18th of May is celebrated the International Museums day. Galleries and more other cultural places join every year the “Museum night”. The way we perceive the art perhaps is the way we perceive life. Our opinion about the same gallery exhibition can be similar or extremely different, even by us in different periods of our life.

Love is in the Bin. The most talked piece of art at the moment is in Baden-Württemberg and other ART stories.
