In Milan, there is Fondazione Trussardi. They have a cinema called Cinema Manzoni, which is located in the shopping district. Don’t get mislead: they do organize impressive exhibitions there. Last time I passed by, it was Parasimpatico, a bunch of installations by Swiss contemporary artist, Pipilotti Rist.

Imagine: you enter in the cinema, take the stairs, and stop right there, on the carpet, because on the ceilings there is a huge pig eating an apple, a romantic red-haired girl, and the meadows. Oh, and the remade soundtrack of Chris Isaak is playing in the background. It feels like you hear the song, and at the same time, you hear Pipilotti screaming somewhere in another room (hear it at 3:24) . Or maybe that’s just your mind screaming: don’t you wanna fall in love?
