Milan’s Bramante cloister as a dream garden

June 19, 2011

I am in Milan to cover the fashion week and my friends Dominique, Mauro and Gildas took me yesterday evening to see a performance by fashion designer Antonio Marras. The event was organized in the Bramante’s cloister and sacresty of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Actress Marisa Berenson, like an icon or a virgin, was emerging from a three or four-meter-high dress made of Sardegna’s costumes. The sacresty, where I had never been, shows wonderful renaissance paintings of religious scenes with gardens and landscapes. I like so much the extraordinary and delicate light of these Italian Renaissance period’s paintings which are a great source of inspiration for my garden pictures. Outside, in the cloister, young women where walking around wearing long white dresses while harpists were playing…

I didn’t have a camera with me, but I managed to take a couple pictures with my phone.
