Barnaba Fornasetti takes part in the #IosonoMilano initiative launched by Vanity Fair Italy
With the hashtag #IosonoMilano, (“I am Milan”) the new issue of Vanity Fair, distributed free today throughout Lombardy, unites the voices of 64 personalities in Milan who send out a message of unity, strength and solidarity towards the other cities of Italy and the world who are currently facing the Covid-19 emergency.
The words of Barnaba Fornasetti, who directs the Atelier and its creative universe in Milan, combining it with the pragmatic industriousness that distinguishes the city, identify an opportunity for global rebirth.
«This crisis demonstrates that all the problems that concern us today are global in nature and that we must find solutions that transcend borders, by joining forces and not creating walls. This virus offers us an opportunity to reflect, individually and collectively, on the sustainability of our lives. It is the proof that we can no longer live without asking ourselves what impact our consumption and movements have on environmental and social ecosystems. We really have to rethink everything, respecting the lives that populate the planet and the life of the planet itself, and this rethinking is truly an opportunity».
