Julipet Loves Italy

What do Portofino, Vieste, Marzamemi, Villasimius and Positano have in common? As well as being some of the most famous Italian beaches and seaside resorts, also loved abroad, they are the Muses of Julipet's Artist Edition "An Italian Summer" for Beachwear.  

A collection dedicated to the beauties of the Peninsula, represented by prints and designs that choose the fabric of boxers as their canvas.

So peeping out are the pastel-coloured houses clustered on the cobbled square that plunges into the sea, the churches, the castle and the lighthouse of the pearl of the gulf of Tigullio; the jagged coastline all inlets, caves and stacks of the jewel of the Gargano; the magic of the ancient village of Sicilian fishermen who have made tuna fishing a religion and hospitality a belief; the uncontaminated nature of the crystal-clear waters of Porto Giunco and the wild Mediterranean maquis of the island of the Nuraghi; the picturesque town of the Amalfi Coast that enchants with its colourful houses and is dressed in the kaleidoscopic light of majolica tiles.

To these places Julipet's collection sings the praises of tourism and becomes a postcard of the beauty of Italy in the name of its style, always recognisable.

Enoblogger and Winery Contract

Enoblogger – Wine Communicator
Emanuele Trono, graduated in Business and Management at the University of Economics of Turin, attended ais sommelier courses and completed a Master in Italian Wine Culture at the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo (CN).
Enoblogger, is a project born from his passion for wine and his desire to share it. His goal has been and still is to feed good drinking and make new skills known, creating a point of reference that rejuvenates the subject and makes it fresh and accessible even to the less experienced.
He started by opening social profiles to show the bottles he opened, the wineries he visited, the trips he undertook and the restaurants he went to eat.
When companies began to contact him to collaborate, he saw the interest grow and now his profession is that of the digital entrepreneur. In fact, with the Enoblogger profile, it has 96 thousand followers, positioning itself among the most important influencers in Italy in
the wine sector.

Cellar Contract
Contratto was founded by Giuseppe Contratto in 1867. The winery is known as the oldest producer of sparkling wines in Italy. In fact, the classic method 1919 Contratto Extra Brut was the first vintage sparkling wine ever produced in the country.
The winery has a long and prestigious history. At the end of the twentieth century, his wines left Canelli for destinations around the world (mainly to royal families), and Contratto was the personal supplier to the Vatican as well as the Italian royal family. Awards and medals from international exhibitions and competitions of the time highlight the reason why the name of Contratto has long been synonymous with prestige and quality in the world of sparkling wines.
The grandiose historic cellars of the Contratto represent a real treasure and are among the most beautiful in Italy. These huge underground cellars, covering more than 5000 square meters, were built in the heart of the hill that protects the small town of Canelli (AT), dug into the limestone tuff to a depth of 32 meters.The cellars maintain the constant and natural temperature of 13 degrees and the ideal humidity rate constitute a perfect environment for fermentation in the bottle and the slow maturation of wines obtained following the classic method.

Ugo Nespolo

Ugo Nespolo was born in Mosso (BI), graduated from the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin and graduated in Modern Literature.
His art is closely linked to everyday life and full of conceptual contributions: "you cannot make art without reflecting on art". The object is at the center of his research, it is an expressive means, a creative language; it is extrapolated from its common use and acquires value as a work of art.
In the same way he does not forget the past, revisits it, reinterprets it, makes it current through quotation and re-enactment, giving it new life, making it food for thought.
Biography
In the Sixties the Artist Nespolo is part of the Schwarz Gallery in Milan which counts among its artists Duchamp, Picabia, Schwitters, Arman. His first exhibition in Milan, presented by Pierre Restany, entitled "Machines and Conditional Objects" represents the climate and innovations of the group that Germano Celant will call Arte Povera.

In the 1960s he moved to New York where he let himself be overwhelmed by the cosmopolitan life of the metropolis and was fascinated by the rising Pop Art, while in the 1970s he was active in the conceptual and poverist circles.
In 1967 he was a pioneer of Italian Experimental Cinema following his meeting with Jonas Mekas, P. Adams Sitney, Andy Warhol and Yōko Ono, in the wake of New American Cinema. Together with Mario Schifano, Nespolo devoted himself to avant-garde cinema and made numerous films starring his friends and colleagues Enrico Baj, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Lucio Fontana. His films have been screened and discussed in major museums including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Tate Modern in London and the Venice Biennale.Together with Enrico Baj Nespolo founded the Istituto Patafisico Ticinese and is, to this day, recognised as one of the highest authorities in the field. Despite the American contaminations, he does not forget the teachings of the European Avant-gardes; in fact, the influence of Fortunato Depero is very marked, from whom Nespolo draws the concept of a playful art that pervades every aspect of everyday life.The concept of art and life (which is also the title of a book published by the artist in 1998) is the basis of Nespolo's expressiveness and is the legacy of the Futurist Movement: "Manifesto for the Futurist Reconstruction of the Universe" (1915).
Hence also his interest in design, applied art and creative experimentation in disparate areas such as advertising graphics, illustration, clothing, sets and costumes of operas.
Sure that the figure of the artist cannot but be that of an intellectual, he studies and writes assiduously of the facts and disciplines that have to do with aesthetics and the art system.
In January 2019 the University of Turin awarded him an Honorary Degree in Philosophy.

Nando Crippa

Moulding the earth to shape figures is the most presumptuous gesture a man can make. I believe it is in this gesture that one really comes to understand why the word creation is so important in the vocabulary of art. Nando Crippa's work is the process of sedimentation of a collective imagination that has passed through the virgins of Willendorf or Brassempouy, but that has also been charged with an iconography of modernity that we find in the advertisements of old magazines. His figures are almost always also archetypes: the women are a little bit Eve and a little bit Penelope, but they cannot find their Adam or their Ulysses among the male figures. There is not, in this artist's characters, the madness of Don Quixote to sustain the action; they are passengers standing still at the station, who do not get on any train just because they have forgotten their destination (their destiny). In them there is always some kind of enigma to be penetrated, which is not the intellectual or hermetic (perhaps alchemical?) exercise of Dürer's Melancholia, but rather the metaphysical or existential one, as in De Chirico's Enigma of Arrival and Evening. They stand at the edge of an empty (abandoned?) chessboard and have forgotten the rules of the game. Or perhaps they have yet to invent them.

Cracking Art

The Cracking Art movement was founded in 1993: the intention is to radically change the history of art through a strong social and environmental commitment that, combined with the revolutionary use of plastic materials, highlights the increasingly close relationship between natural life and artificial reality. The choral dimension of the group does not limit the individual expression of the individual voices: the artists also work independently, each according to their own needs, interpreting the problems and tensions of our time.

A crew-neck jumpsuit with contrasting blue trousers, a sweatshirt with wrap-around hood and a jogging pant choose a strongly characterised customisation with a high fashion content. Completing the offer is a white poplin boxer shorts embellished with a flaming heart for a romantic gift idea designed especially for Lovers' Day. The iconic tattoos were designed by the skilful hand of Sonia Beriotto, a renowned tattoo artist from Vicenza.
