Yes, these things are connected.
Erica has a great POST about our evening, along with a cool slide show.
I was her date for the annual Fendi performance art show. The show is held in the Old Jewish Market by Circo Massimo. I've stepped into that building many times and never notice the Star of David in the ceiling until Erica pointed it out to me.
When Kim Carnes came out and sang "Bette Davis Eyes," I cracked up. It was so random! She sounded great.
The show was very interesting. I can't say that I understood everything that was going on. For example, I'm not sure what was the point of the extremely well-endowed naked man who stood onstage.
The crowded was eclectic... fashion forward young artists mixed with old money older crowd. I think Erica and I were the only Americans there.
There was small post party at the palazzo of Alda Fendi on Via Giulia. She personally greeted every guest, which was very Bella Figura.
The lasagna was delicious. I wasn't expecting food at the party but was very happy to see it.
It was a surreal evening. Despite the rain, it was one of those nights that reminded me of why I love living here.
