Ancora una volta SaalDigital mi ha dato la possibilità di stampare un prodotto serio e professionale! Dopo i bellissimi fotolibri, è la volta di un fotoquadro 45 x 30 cm su tela. Per l'occasione ho scelto uno scatto che mi ha fatto l'amico fotografo e film maker americano Magee McIlvaine, durante le riprese di un video che abbiamo girato a New York. Il risultato finale è davvero ottimo: la stampa pregiata, le dimensioni importanti e le sfmature del bianco e nero rese impeccabilmente. Sono curioso di provare anche le stampe a colori di SaalDigital e gli altri innumerevoli supporti che quest'azienda offre.
Ciliegina sulla torta, i tempi di spedizione rapidissimi ed il servizio clienti, sempre gentilissimo e disponibile. Eccellente!

Seconda prova di stampa del mio progetto "MammaLiTurki! - How to explain Istanbul to my mom"!!! Ancora una volta Saal Digital mi ha dato la possibilità di stampare un fotolibro di altissima qualità e mi ha offerto una prova prodotto professionale e ottimamente confezionata.
Grazie al loro software -in free download dal sito www.saal-digital.it - ho potuto impaginare facilmente una selezione di 26 foto, formato 19x19, su carta opaca di ottima grammatura, con una rilegatura ineccepibile ed una copertina rigida che rende il tutto simile ad un libro vero e proprio. I tempi di consegna sono stati di nuovo incredibilmente rapidi: la spedizione é arrivata a domicilio in meno di tre giorni grazie a DHL.
Uniche piccole pecche che mi sento di evidenziare -con la speranza di miglioramenti futuri- sono alcuni limiti del software di impaginazione ed i tempi di risposta del servizio clienti, davvero biblici, a fronte di una comunque sempre presente gentilezza da parte dello stesso, apprezzabile.
In ogni caso mi sento di poter continuare a consigliare Saal Digital e la reputo un'azienda molto seria e affidabile. Da provare assolutamente!
A lot of people don't use to listen to the music anymore and they want to watch that. That's why I started to make video like this! :D

Even if I'm definitely not a photographer, I've always been fascinated by photography since I was a young kid. I've been taking tons of photos wherever I've been traveling in all these years, but it's been only in Istanbul that my perspective on this Art changed completely.
I felt in love with this incredible city and its people and I've been collecting a huge amount of photos (with my old iphone only) in the year and a half I've been living there, documenting every day life, the workers, the teyzes, the cats, etc.
I was sending many of these photos to my mom in Italy to show her that life in Istanbul is not as bad as many foreign medias were trying to show in a very Turko-phobic way. I was trying to explain to her that there are a lot of very normal and cool people in Istanbul, very mixed, very different, a little bit weird sometimes maybe but also very peaceful, welcoming, curious and positive.
That's why I titled this project "MammaLiTurki! - How to explain Istanbul to my mom" (a.k.a. "Mamma, li Turchi!"), that means something like "Omg, Mom! The Turks are coming!", an old way to say that's still popular in Italy and has its roots into the raids that Ottomans were doing in Southern Italy from the Middle Eve on.
Thanks to many friends of mine that are professional or amateur photographers and saw my photos on Instagram and pushed me hard to put together this book, I took courage and started to seriously work on that.
Some days ago I won a coupon from Saal Digital and they give me the chance to print this very first draft of "MammaLiTurki!" for free. I made a very quick choice through my hard-drives, picked up these 60 photos for this photo-booklet, put them together with the software of this company and after a couple of days I got this present you can see in the video here:
First of all I have to say that Saal Digital made a great product and I'm really thankful because the quality of the paper and the final outcome are really high. I couldn't imagine a better work and I really recognize the seriousness and kindness that always feature this company and their employees. The delivery has been super fast and precise as well.
I definitely recommend Saal Digital to print a great photo-booklet and I'm looking forward to try also some other of their products. Chapeau!
On my side, I see that there're still so many details I need to work on and I'll keep on doing that in the next months. But the final result is not that bad: I'm very happy with this very first version and I believe it's a really good start for me. Thanks to all my lovely supporters that are giving me good feedbacks on this and keep on pushing me! :-)
Me and my friend Sergio Limuti (in the photo below) have been collaborating already on so many projects where Cuba has been involved. In 2013 we've been invited together by Cuban's government to perform at Symposio Internacional in Havana along with my group, Zero Plastica.
Finally, after many years of hard work, we're putting together "Afro Rap Cubano", a project where Afro Cuban drum rhythms are blessed by a series of very dope MCs like Obsesiòn, Brebaje Man, La Akdemia, Las Klidas, Malcom, La Fina, El Don Gua and many others.
Once again, I've been asked to produce a Posse-Cut!
This time it's been for a group of young MCs of my own city (Genova), that created an event series called "Back to the Culture", where they're trying to bring together all the elements of Hip Hop Culture in a Party once every 2 months.

Turkish rapper Fuat presents this new interesting project.
"DEF RAP aims to close the communication gap between deaf and hard of hearing individuals and the rest of society, by presenting the stories you’ve never heard of, with music and dance. The artists in the videos you are about to watch are all deaf and this is their own music band. #defrap is a brand new music genre. The artists will continue to tell their stories to the world through their new songs. Feeling is hearing".
