Forget Paris’ Père Lachaise, forget Milan’s Cimitero Monumentale, this is the real thing. Abney Park, in Stoke Newington (London), is the kind of cemetery you usually only see in film: gothic, romantic, deliciously decadent.
Best enjoyed in autumn. (Like, now, for instance).
“‘L’elegante purezza di una villa razionalista nel cuore di Milano.”
When in Milan, do visit Villa Necchi-Campiglio. It is so stunning I have seen it 7 times (*only* cried once though).
I seem to be seeing (or hearing about) Marcel Broodthaers a lot recently.
I like that, I think this utterly Belgian artist deserves to be much more famous than he is now.
