So if the sun is shining and you fancy taking a break in Mayfair, this could be a very convenient destination.

In charge of food, Enzo Oliveri concocted a menu of Italian Pinsa (presented as a lighter alternative to traditional pizza) and Italian street food. On the menu will be:

  • Amalfi Garden Pinsa with asparagus, zucchini, fresh vegan curd, pea shoots and Amalfi lemon
  • Caviar and fresh cream Pinsa with Osetra caviar, fresh cream, chives and Amalfi lemon
  • Burrata and truffle pinsa with Fior di latte, Umbrian truffle slices and burrata

There will also be fresh oysters and an ice cream bar. As for drinks, expect cocktails, spritzes, wine, and prosecco. They will also have screenings at Wimbledon, an Italian film festival and more over the summer.

Swiatek, alongside the other eight seeds, will get an opening leave. The Pole recently rose to the top of the WTA World Rankings and is looking to defend her title at the Italian Open.

The world number one will kick off her campaign in the second round against the winner of an all-American clash between Shelby Rogers and Alison Riske. The 20-year-old chose to miss the Mutua Madrid Open in order to rest from a shoulder injury. Upon her return, the Pole will be looking to maintain her 23-game winning streak. The player is still undefeated at the WTA 1000 events this year, winning tournaments in Doha, Indian Wells, Miami and Stuttgart. Swiatek could face Victoria Azarenka in the round of 16 – a player who reached the final of this tournament in 2013.

Emma Raducanu in action at the Madrid Open

Defending US Open champion Emma Raducanu will face 2019 Flushing Meadows champion Bianca Andreescu in the first round. The Briton is yet to make it past the second round of a tournament this year and has also made changes to his coaching setup. Raducanu pulled out of the Madrid Open in the third round after a 2-1 loss to Ukraine’s Anhelina Kalinina – a valiant display considering she suffered from a back problem.

The winner of the match will face either Sara Sorribes Tormo or another Flushing Meadows star in Naomi Osaka.

Former Italian Open champion Simona Halep, who won nine singles titles on clay, will kick off the tournament against Alize Cornet. The two players met earlier this year at the Australian Open, with Cornet knocking out her Romanian opponent to make her first Grand Slam quarter-final. Australian Open runner-up Danielle Collins will await the winner of this match in the second round. Another interesting fight sees Coco Gauff take on Angelique Kerber in the first round. Kerber won their only one-on-one meeting, which took place at Wimbledon last year.

This weekend’s Miami Grand Prix will take place on May 8, which marks 40 years to the day since Canadian racing driver Gilles Villeneuve tragically lost his life.

The Ferrari driver was killed in a crash during the Belgian Grand Prix at Zolder, aged 32, and his family marked the occasion with a poignant and powerful interview about the racing icon’s legacy. race.

Exclusive footage from the interview was captured as part of the upcoming documentary ‘Villeneuve Pironi’which will tell the astonishing story of two gifted Ferrari drivers: Villeneuve and Didier Pironi, forever torn apart by a historic and extremely controversial moment.

It is produced by Noah Media Group and Sky Studios for Sky and NBCUniversal and is due out later this year.

In the footage, shot at the recent Italian Grand Prix at Imola – the scene of the ‘defining moment of tragedy’Villeneuve Pironi’ story – Gilles’ wife, Joann, speaks eloquently about his life and his legacy as a runner.

“Gilles believed the edge is where you need to be,” she said. “For him, the best thing was to embrace the guardrails.”

His daughter Mélanie and his son Jacques, F1 world champion, also appear in the documentary.

Along with the first look images, images of Joann at Imola and a file image of Gilles with the family at the peak of his racing career have also been released to mark 40 years since his death.

Charismatic and outspoken, the Canadian rose from humble roots to fulfill his dream of racing in Formula 1. Naturally talented, Villeneuve’s fearless racing style has thrilled sports purists and captured the imagination of fans around the world.

Imola in April 1982 was the site of the now infamous “betrayal” between Ferrari teammates Gilles and Didier. It marked one of the most controversial moments in sports history and ‘Villeneuve Pironi’ will tell this amazing story for the first time with the support of both families.

Mélanie Villeneuve added: “We are delighted to work with Noah Media Group for the production of this docu-film. John Mckenna, Torquil Jones and the entire team at Noah have done an amazing job, researching extensively, providing high quality interviews and footage to tell a story that is important to my family.

Måneskin’s music was subsequently used in nearly 10 million videos on TikTok, helping “Beggin” (released in 2017) climb the global streaming charts and the Billboard Hot 100.

“We often forget that stuff when we’re making music and hanging out and just doing what we love,” the Måneskin bassist said. Victoria De Angelis, 22, said in an email. “Then something unreal happens and we realize it’s not a dream.”

The group recently made headlines for the first performance of their new song “Gasoline”, written in support of Ukraine. “We wish we could do more,” says singer Damiano David. “But if there is ever a great opportunity to spread a message, we want to use our voice and our privileges for something important.”

Review:
A middle-aged woman, Dorothy Emerson, is seen dying violently in a bathroom. A police report concludes that she committed suicide by slitting her throat with a shard of broken glass because she had been drinking heavily and the door was locked from the inside.

A teenage girl, Nancy Thompson (Luciana Della Robbia), has unexpectedly arrived at the late mother’s country villa. She meets Gianna (Rosalba Neri), a photographer and former best friend of Dorothy (who lived at the villa as a longtime guest), and they become friends.

It soon becomes apparent that Gianna and Marco (Silvano Tranquilli) have a relationship. The teenager’s natural charm intoxicates the older two and jealousies quickly develop. More importantly, alerted by housekeeper Magda (Dana Ghia), Nancy begins to suspect that her mother’s death may not have been a suicide…

Clearly influenced by deceptive erotic thrillers such as Paranoia and A quiet place to killby Silvio Amadio smile before death is an object lesson in how audiences should never trust what they see and hear in the Gialli.

A detailed look would reveal too many other enjoyable twists awaiting viewers. Suffice it to say, this is a seductive cinematic treat that benefits from an underlying sense of evil, including some eyebrow-raising interactions. The ending is maybe a bit too neat but at least it’s not predictable.

Smile-Before-Death-Il-sorriso-della-iena-movie-film-1972-italian-giallo-thriller-review-reviews-Rosalba-Neri

All three tracks are excellent – ​​Tranquilli has never been so slim and Neri proves once again that she can play the pants of most European femme fatales – and a special mention has to go to Luciana Della Robbia who goes from convincing way from a seemingly sweet innocent to a predatory one. with a surprising program.

Yet what really smile before death such compulsive entertainment is Roberto Pregadio’s infectious soundtrack which features groovy organ with delightful vocals by Edda Dell’Orso – although it should be noted that some may find the use of variations of the same musical motif repetitive. exasperating rather than captivating.

Other reviews:
“Silvio Amadio only made another Giallo and that would be Amok! Much like that film, this one also proves that Silvio was perhaps more interested in filming beautiful women behaving badly as he showed the murders as it relates to Giallo. Never mind. This movie has a lot of storylines to do and I was really surprised by the conclusion of this caper. B&S on movies

“A comeback effort more focused on sordid events and complex double crosses than actual harassment and cuts, this has a lot to like for fans of this format.” Don’s world of horror and exploitation

“A light recommendation, this well-acted Giallo with plenty of nudity and decent mystery is more than okay for genre fans. However, the hint of familiarity with Amok! and a ghastly theme song threatens to derail it a bit. Rosalba Neri definitely stands out, but Jenny Tamburi is fine too. Shameless self-expression

” …smile before death essentially reverses the premise of Amadio’s more famous Giallo Amok! (1971) […] the film makes do with a rather silly and convoluted case of karmic retribution. A reminder that, as salacious as she was, the Giallo kind was often guilty of pandering to squared bourgeois morality. The rotating image

” …smile before death turns out to be far more exceptional than originally thought, this gradual, almost lethargic opening, ultimately serving a purpose and with each twist, getting better and better. Neri is as fantastic as always, her presence is a boon to any image although Robbins almost steals the show as an intriguing girl. The Revealing Spirit

“What makes it a joy is the fabulous soundtrack, the showy shagadelic decor and fashion, Jenny Tamburi’s continued nudity and fast pace. Thank goodness there aren’t the typical Giallo police detectives boringly putting the pieces together. No sir, not this movie. Video Zeta One [includes a slew of salacious images from the movie]

Choice dialog:
Marco [Silvano Tranquilli]”Be careful. With all your traps, you’re going to roast yourself like a chicken.

There is no shortage of great art beasts in Venice, as the world’s most prestigious international art event, the city’s Biennale, opens to the public.

Georg Baselitz made works to hang in the 18th century stucco frames that once held portraits of the Grimani family in their palace. Marc Quinn is on display at the National Archaeological Museum. Anselm Kiefer covered the walls of a colossal room in the Ducal Palace with paintings encrusted with shoes, clothes, metal and even a ladder.

Arguably, however, the overriding spirit of the event lies beyond these impressive exhibits. In the biennial’s main venues – the city’s Giardini and Arsenale – the prevailing sentiment is not that of the white, male, solitary artist. Instead, for the first time, female artists outnumbered males – and by a ratio of about nine to one.

Of the more than 200 artists that curator Cecilia Alemani features in her huge main exhibition, the vast majority are women. One of its venues, the international pavilion of the Giardini, contains no male artists, only women and a small number of non-binary and trans artists.

“I’ve always worked with a lot of female artists – and I think some of the most talented artists working today are women,” said the US-based Italian curator.

Historically, around 10% of artists in the main exhibit have tended to be women, rising to 30% in recent years; in 2019, British curator Ralph Rugoff’s exhibition reached rough parity for the first time. Alemani’s show is approximately 90% female.

“I don’t care about quotas,” she added, “but it’s striking that people are obsessed with my exposure and have never found male dominance. [in previous editions] shocking.”

Characteristic of the atmosphere of the biennale is, for example, the Polish pavilion: the Roma artist Małgorzata Mirga-Tas covered the walls of the structure with quilts resembling tapestries, partly inspired by the frescoes of Palazzo Schifanoia in Ferrara , which pay tribute to pioneering Roma women.

Right next to the Polish pavilion, the famous Romanian pavilion of Alina Pintilie, and her group of collaborators, who she described as “wonderful, courageous, soul seekers”, including gays, trans people and people with disabilities , challenge normative views of relationships, the body and intimacy. In her film work You Are Another Me – Cathedral of the Body she was interested, she said, in “opening up different ways of relating to different bodies, different beauties”.

Black women occupy some of the most prominent national pavilions: sculptor Simone Leigh for the United States; Sonia Boyce for Great Britain; and Zineb Sedira, of Algerian origin, for France.

Sedira, whose exhibition meditates on the history of Algerian, French and Italian cinema, said: “I am a female artist who works in a world dominated by men. The film world of the 1960s and 1970s was definitely a man’s world. I really wanted to reclaim this space as a woman, as an Algerian, as a Muslim, as a Frenchwoman, as a British.

Like Boyce’s exhibition, which highlights black female musicians, Sedira’s show is strongly rooted in ideas of friendship. The same goes for Alberta Whittle’s exhibition for Scotland, which reflects on the traumatic history of the slave trade and colonialism between Africa, Scotland and Barbados, where she was born.

“I find it interesting that so many of us – Sonia Boyce, Simone Leigh – are members of the Caribbean diaspora,” said Glasgow-based Whittle. “It’s a prospect that has long been ignored.” Tender and touching despite everything, his work is made, says Whittle, “by a spirit of hope and rage.” It was, she said, “a tiring position” to be the first black woman to represent her country, along with Boyce, Leigh and Sedira. “Having said that, I feel honoured. It’s like showing my work in the big leagues.

“The world is waking up and realizing it’s finally time,” Alemani said. “I think it is puzzling that although the American Pavilion was built in 1930 and the British Pavilion was built in 1912, it has taken until now for black women to occupy them. But we have to go beyond the shock and use this time to reflect on the past and reinterpret history and understand how we got here.

Her exhibition, titled The Milk of Dreams, “reconsidered the centrality of man, to celebrate a different relationship with the planet, nature and different species”, she said. This involved “decentering the western, usually white male perspective”. She cited as an example the work of Colombian artist Delcy Morelos, whose work was a discovery for her in her research on her exhibition, and whose large earthen “maze” occupies one of the large spaces of the Arsenale.

The Morelos facility is “infused with tobacco, cocoa powder, cloves,” she explained. “You experience art with the fullness of the body – something I’ve missed a lot during the pandemic.”
