Hotel Magna Pars Suites Milano: un viaggio attraverso i sensi

There are places that enter in the heart at first glance, places where you can breathe and live the beauty in all its forms, places that are unlikely to be forgotten.
In Milan, in the heart of the design district, there is a "jewel" called Hotel Magna Pars Suites Milano, the first Hotel à Parfum belonging to the prestigious luxury collection of Small Luxury Hotels of The World.
Small Luxury Hotels of The World has, in fact, more than 500 independent hotels in 80 countries, offering an endless variety of memorable experiences, carefully selected for their style and their exceptionality. All different but united from offering the best location, high-quality, personalized service and an authentic way to discover the destination. And so elegant and classy hotel as the Magna Pars Suites Milan could only be part of this fascinating collection.
It is for this elegance, for this simple luxury, for the perfume, always different, that envelops every environment and enters in the mind, for white furniture, for the perfume laboratory, the corridors beams and railings steel that resemble so much a ship -and to my love for the sea- but I would not have wanted to leave.
From the outside a huge glass wall reveals the flavor of the past: post-industrial elements, original walls of what at the time was the perfume factory of Martone family.
The love for perfumes, for art and for the hospitality brought the family to found the five-star hotel Magna Pars Suites Milano, to live a unique experience through all the senses.

To miss. From Latin, mancus - maimed, imperfect. Not be enough, to defect and also fail.
It is what feels those who experience this feeling on their skin: flawed, failing, not enough. It is an emotional state that involves being unhappy, having to react against their wishes and do the opposite of what you would like. Because if someone is missing, for sure we would like not missing.
It is the lack of love, a friend or a loved one, it does not matter. Distances require you to respond and not sit there waiting.
It is strange the way a person manages to miss. It is equally strange the way you can not do without someone.
We were created comprehensive, yet we are looking for our soul mate, the half apple, our missing piece. 
It is absurd! Absurd and inexplicable. With feelings there is nothing to do, you can not control feelings.
I believe that failings have to do with dependencies, that the to much brings to an end. I think anyone who is missing, too often, is the result of a more that you had, and which has been removed. It is the routine that is interrupted, the habit that becomes the exception.
It is bad having to deal with failings, with distances, with the absences. It is hard to handle them, deal with them, overcome them. What is certain, is that life goes on anyway, but there are some failings and there will always be. They are part of us.
Life is made of this: of failings, empty filled and unbridgeable gaps.

Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina in Fiore

Pink as the spring that returns and romance that brings. Pink as cherry trees, the Peach Blossom and magnolias, with their nuances, dye the blue sky of this period. Rose as the soul of a poised young lady on a swing of emotions. Pink as her thoughts and sighs.
The roofs of Milan, the chirping of birds, spring in the air and a Signorina in Fiore, happy and carefree, romantic and gentle that, as a corolla, pretty opens its petals to the first rays of sun.
Sweet but lively, elegant but youthful, is Signorina in Fiore, the new floral-fruity fragrance by Salvatore Ferragamo.
Dedicated to the romantic and joyous soul of the young women, the scent opens with colorful notes, where the delicious, lively sorbet Nashi pear merges with the juicy pomegranate. The heart is a created with enchanted flowers: while the cherry blossom swaying in the breeze, Jasmine petals spread their essence. Finally, an intense light embraces the senses, leaving a sinuous trail of White Musk and Sandalwood.
A fragrance that exudes joy and happiness... because when in love every girl blossoms like a flower.

La vita. Che bel proposito, vivere.

Life. What a beautiful way, to live. And living life is all that we are asked to do, like at Christmas when you give away a toy train to a child, and he only have to mount the track and then leave the wagons track on the rails.
After all life is this, it is given to us and then leave us free to "mount" as best we believe, trusting that then we live therefore, at best. Life knows only one time, that of a life, in fact, and it is precisely for this time that is given us to appreciate, as best we can, this gift that someone, for some reason we can not know, packed for us.
If we all were to accept this gift and there we took care, reminding us that it is unique and irreplaceable, and we thank every moment for as long as we are allowed to enjoy it, perhaps, we would have a good reason to live, life.

Wine estate, surrounded by nature, Amon Olimje is one of the oldest in Slovenia.
A green oasis surrender by a sense of peace. At the height of their beauty there are the forests, vineyards, flowers, rushing streams, grazing cows and chirping birds.
Here, in the company cellar, mature a wide selection of wines from the wine region of Virstanj, as well as fine aged wines, but the reputation of the company is also in the good cuisine and golf course.
Amon family offers its guests the best. From wine, cuisine, going to sports and even the stay. A pension, Natura Amon, nestling in the green oasis that fought on the one hand, the forest and the other extending toward the sunrise, on the golf course.
A rustic interior takes up the shape of a wine cellar.
The cuisine offers a wide range of cuisines and fine wines: seasonal dishes made with fresh ingredients and fruits, organic produce grown in their gardens and used in the preparation of organic menus. Delicious homemade pate, salami of Kozjansko, a wide selection of soups, such as soup to Kozjansko mushrooms or the bread "prezganka", but also gnocchi, homemade pasta, game, lamb, duck and pork.
The wines embody the colors, the aromas and the flavors of the best varieties of white and black grapes of Styria region. Words are not enough, you have to enjoy!
Slovenia, with its landscapes, its cuisine and its wellness centers, has fascinated me so much that I'm already thinking about going back. This time I could rent a holiday home with Hundredrooms in Ljubljana... who knows;)
