The Antonio Belloni theatre is in Barlassina, in Brianza.

“We did it all on our own, my son Giovanni and I”, Marco Belloni said. “The theater is a sort of box divided into eight levels that can hold one-hundred spectators, including seventy seats on the floor”. They worked in their spare time for eight years, with 50 builders, internal decorators, and plasterers. The stage is 14 metres long and 10 metres deep. There are technical rooms, dressing rooms, an elegant foyer, banquet room, an orchestra pit that can hold 50 musicians. The ceiling is a sky illuminated by stars, lit with 1600 fibre optics installed by Belloni’s Giovanni.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
