ENGLISH:

Community in all senses, this is the theme, this time. I thought of many Communnity types, like anybody may think: small, large, made by children or teenagers, grown-ups, sportsmen, monks, animals and so on. But thinking about this topic I thought of a temporary community that was not lasting, a continuing entity, but that renew systematically almost its members every day: the Daily Community of a Wedding.

The one you may see in this pano, was celebrated with civil rite in Dugnani Palace, Milan, Italy, situated to the border of the city’s Public Gardens. The place is a wonderful room painted in fresco by GiambattistaTiepolo, that receives many “Daily Community”, and so similar to butterflies: they live just for one day, but may be so fine and remain impressed in the mind all the life long. This room is the sly witness of the passing of these fleeting Communities: the ceremony is almost ten minutes long also if this the prelude to a more lasting event; it might be so at least.

As for as the couple life, that usually begins there…this is another story.

ITALIANO:

“Community”, Comunitè in senso lato e/o stretto, questo il tema di questa volta. Ho pensato ad infiniti tipi di Comunitè che a tutti possono venire in mente: piccole o grandi, di bambini, adolescenti, adulti, sportivi, rmonaci, animali e così via. Mi sono però ritrovato a pensare ad un tipo di comunità “a tempo”, cioè non necessariamente duratura, continuativa come entità, ma che rinnova sistematicamente quasi ogni giorno i suoi membri: la Comunita’ Giornaliera di un matrimonio.

Quello raffigurato in questa pano e’ stato celebrato con rito civile a Palazzo Dugnani in Milano, Italia, situato al limitare dei Giardini Pubblici della città. L’ambiente è una splendida sala affrescata dal Tiepolo, che accoglie molte “Comunitè Giornaliere”, e perciò simili alle farfalle: vivono un giorno solo, ma possono essere bellissime e restare impresse nella mente per tutta la vita. Questa sala assite sorniona al passaggio di queste effimere Comunità: la cerimonia dura infatti circa una decina di minuti anche se questo è il preludio a qualcosa di ben più duraturo,… o almeno cosi’ dovrebbe essere.

Per la vita di coppia che di solito lì inizia…è un’altra storia.
