Domenico Dolce was born in Polizzi Generosa (near Palermo, Sicily) on 13 September 1958. His family owned a small clothing business, where Domenico worked from childhood. Stefano Gabbana was born in Milan on 14 November 1962. He studied graphics but soon turned to fashion. After a brief period working as assistant designers, they founded the Dolce & Gabbana label, which had its first runway show as part of the New Talent group in Milan in 1985, upon the invitation of Italian fashion promoter Beppe Modenese. Dolce and Gabbana's First Collection In 1986 they produced their first collection, called "Real Women." In 1987 they launched their knitwear line and in 1989 their beachwear and lingerie lines. Beginning in 1988 they produced their ready-to-wear line in Domenico Dolce's family-owned atelier, located in Legnano, Milan. The first Dolce & Gabbana men's collection appeared in 1990. In 1994 they launched the D&G label, inspired by street style and a more youthful look. The clothes were produced and distributed by Ittierre. Slowly, the pair launched other product lines, including knitwear and accessories, and gained notoriety particularly for their sensual dresses and menswear, which won them the 1991 Woolmark Prize. In the early 1990s, pop star Madonna selected them as her costume designers for her “Girlie” world tour and wore one of their jewel-encrusted corsets to the Cannes Film Festival. Throughout the ‘90s, the duo were famed for their overtly feminine, colourful garments, which stood in stark contrast to the wave of minimalism that was sweeping across fashion at the time. For several seasons’ campaigns and runway shows, the pair have cast ordinary men and women, typically from their native Italy. They have designed for everyone from AC Milan to Motorola and have also co-authored a dozen or so books detailing their collections and legacy. In June 2013, Dolce and Gabbana were charged and convicted of tax evasion, however the duo successfully appealed to overturn their conviction and were pronounced innocent by the Italian Supreme Court of Justice in October 2014. “We have always been honest, and we are extremely proud of this recognition by the Italian Court of Justice. Viva l’Italia,” said the pair in a statement at the time. In late 2018, the duo came under media fire for when the brand posted a marketing campaign featuring an Italian model eating Italian food with chopsticks, that was deemed derogatory to Chinese culture. Following the outrage, Gabbana was ousted online for a racist feud between him and another Instagram user. With Chinese consumers making up a sizeable chunk of the luxury market, the brand lost a large part of its Asian-Pacific market due to boycotts. By November, the brand cancelled its Shanghai fashion show. the first quarter of 2019, social media engagement for the brand fell by 98 percent compared to the same time last year. In 2019, the brand also announced it would extend its style sizes to 14-18, as of its pre-fall 2019 collection. Following its international faux pas that same year, the brand staged it’s Alta Moda fashion show in the Temple of Concordia, a UNESCO World Heritage site turned into its own ancient Greece-inspired runway. Although their personal relationship ended in 2005, as The New Yorker puts it, “Gabbana is the eyes for Dolce’s hands,” and they have continued to work together on an enduring empire, crafted from scratch, by their love of their homeland and the scope of their romantic imagination.

Salvador Dalí , was known for his wild art and a public personality to match, and these two elements helped him rise above the rest of the surrealists. His quote said it all “the difference between me and the surrealists, is that I am a surrealist”. He is memorable because he was a pioneer of the movement. He was involved in all aspects of artistic creation from painting, sculpture, design, drawing, movies, fashion, etc. He applied the surrealist concept to everything he said did. His audacity and rebellious attitude towards art and politics set him aside from others and allowed him to create some of the most famous and recognizable paintings of the 20th century. His unconventional style and sometimes outrageous ideas were highly sought in his commercial work - in fashion, photography, advertising and film - they brought the style to a huge popular audience. Not only did he leave a mark on surrealism but even twenty years following his death, his artwork and influences can be seen almost everywhere around the world. If you stop anyone in the street, most will be familiar with at least one of his images. The name Dalí is magic, he remains an icon.

Dante Alighieri è stato un poeta, scrittore e politico italiano, considerato il padre della lingua italiana; la sua fama è dovuta eminentemente alla paternità della Comedìa, divenuta celebre come Divina Commedia e universalmente considerata la più grande opera scritta in lingua italiana e uno dei maggiori capolavori della letteratura mondiale. Espressione della cultura medievale, filtrata attraverso la lirica del Dolce stil novo, la Commedia è anche veicolo allegorico della salvezza umana, che si concreta nel toccare i drammi dei dannati, le pene purgatoriali e le glorie celesti, permettendo a Dante di offrire al lettore uno spaccato di morale ed etica. Importante linguista, teorico politico e filosofo, Dante spaziò all'interno dello scibile umano, segnando profondamente la letteratura italiana dei secoli successivi e la stessa cultura occidentale, tanto da essere soprannominato il "Sommo Poeta" o, per antonomasia, il "Poeta". Dante, le cui spoglie si trovano presso la tomba a Ravenna costruita nel 1780 da Camillo Morigia, è diventato uno dei simboli dell'Italia nel mondo, grazie al nome del principale ente della diffusione della lingua italiana, la Società Dante Alighieri, mentre gli studi critici e filologici sono mantenuti vivi dalla Società dantesca. A partire dal XX secolo e nei primi anni del XXI, Dante è entrato a far parte della cultura di massa, mentre la sua opera e la sua figura hanno ispirato il mondo dei fumetti, dei manga, dei videogiochi e della letteratura.

Each forcola I create is like a journey. I start by studying the walnut wood trunk, as though I were in a foreign land which will slowly become friendlier. I outline the “forcola” with care respecting the grains of the wood, and then embark on the task, sweating and taking delight in the hard work. Every now and then I observe it as a traveler would when he gazes back to see how far he has come and stops for a moment to contemplate the scenery. I work slowly at times, and at others with a sense of urge, vigor and tenderness until I begin to see the curves and the lines I wanted emerging from the wood. Completing a forcola is a bit like crossing a finish line. I savor the moment as it will stay forever. Something has been created. And I must wait a little longer before embarking on another journey.

The Diomede Islands, also known in Russia as Gvozdev Islands, consist of two rocky, mesa-like islands: the Russian island of Big Diomede, and the U.S. island of Little Diomede (part of Alaska) or Ignaluk, also known as Krusenstern Island. The Diomede Islands are located in the middle of the Bering Strait between mainland Alaska and Siberia, which borders the Chukchi Sea to the north and the Bering Sea to the south. Because they are separated by the International Date Line, Big Diomede is almost a day ahead of Little Diomede, but not completely; due to locally defined time zones, Big Diomede is only 21 hours ahead of Little Diomede (20 in summer). Because of this, the islands are sometimes called Tomorrow Island (Big Diomede) and Yesterday Island (Little Diomede).
