Comporta – Portugal

19th of September 2018

Hard to believe that such relatively unspoilt places still exist in Europe….let’s hope local politicians and international

project developers won’t ruin the place with high rise buildings and bloody golf courses…

Apparently Philippe Starck has been enjoying tranquil Comporta for years (Video with English subtitles)

Great article on Comporta by Surfacemag  (American magazine of global contemporary design)


Marcello Mastroianni

4th of September 2018

Interviewed by David Letterman in 1987:

In 2014 his beautiful country house near Lucca in Tuscany was offered for sale, asking 1,2 million euros

One of the cars owned by Mr Mastroianni was auctioned at Bonhams in 2005: a gorgeous Lancia Flaminia Super Sport

It seemed a perfect match of man and machine. Stylish, chic and elegant. The Pinnacle – Lancia Flaminia

Around 1960 at Cinecitta with a Jaguar:

At one time he also owned villa “La Prora”

Located in the fascinating Tuscan seaside town of Castiglioncello
