"A lot of people go to Paris, few have been there", said the Italian collector Francesco Algarotti; and he was so right.
Five days are not enough to visit such a magnificent place, especially if you are there to visit Maison & Objet, but thanks to the chauffeur’s skills and the rare moments where the rain gave Paris a rest, I enjoyed few of the wonders of this city, even if I was in a rush. That’s how I spent 5 days in Paris.
Always doing something, always moving somewhere else, always meeting someone…with a Moleskine in my bag, the perfect travel partner for this Parisian dream. Every moment was the right one to take note of a new brand or sketch a new idea inspired by the beauty of every corner.
The unmistakable allure of Paris reveals and conceals itself, at the same time, in every street, in every way, in every cafe, in every detail of its architecture, where everything is accurately designed. Is like buildings are actually striking a pose, ready to be painted or photographed.
Even if it was January, Christmas vibes was still all around Paris.
The city welcomed me with a pouring rain but greeted me with its best sun the day I flew back to Italy.
