Immortali

Well, it just so appears that the Italian folks running Meaningless Productions aren't playing around (or if they are, then they do it just right); after getting us all accustomed to Patrick Frunzio's skills behind the lens and computer, and all the while he's busy working on more, today, they are being represented by Matteo Ricci via "IMMORTALI": fifteen minutes just as beautifully crafted in a style typical of the one of the house, now well established, featuring a cascade of mostly Italian skateboarders sharing the dislike of getting stuck in one place it seems - indeed, the footage was collected all over Italy (Florence, Milan, Trieste, Naples, Rome...) but even beyond, too - from Slovenia to Los Angeles, and going through Malmö, Copenhagen and Barcelona... Exactly the nearly irresponsible stimulus one needs right now to fuel their hatred for quarantine - watch at your own risk!

Yesterday's youth

As to set the record straight in modern times witnessing an explosion of coverage of the Milan skate scene (we'll be sending you back to, amongst other options, Patrick Frunzio's videos), longtime local crew Chef Family - here led by René Olivo - just unveiled the latest Spaghettochild production: "Youth Of Yesterday" is an award-winning documentary on Gianluca Mariani, resident O.G., creative pioneer and director of the aforementioned institution of a small brand since 1989, forever a skater with his fair share of roots digging deep into punk culture.

The resulting film consists in twenty-six magnificiently-edited minutes (René being a professional editor in his spare time off the board) of pure information and street skating - all eras included, both of which should hit at least a few right notes in most every dedicated skateboarder. So, please enjoy this batch of footage of the Milan youth of both today and yesterday, all gathered by a common passion every and each of them reinterpeted their own way, punctuating the local skate history with just as many different styles and stuffed into quite the humorous calzone. Thirty years of meticulously documented and assembled adventures dipped in olive oil, with a message in the back - somewhere.

Monday blu

So, how do you start off a rainy week the best possible way!? Well, by celebrating the concrete pouring obsessed "development" of the most beautiful places in the world, by drilling swimming pools and water parks there… With the La Dolce Vita crew, off course! Without them, it sure would look a lot less fun! But, frankly, how insane is that spot, seriously!?
