YOU SHOULD BE DANCING
No brand is more colorful, all-encompassing and universal than Benetton. To celebrate its outlook towards uniqueness, but with its ability to include and welcome every form of humanity under its umbrella, the "You Should BE Dancing" project was created. Under the guidance of Giuliana Matarrese, we asked 5 local heroes to interpret Benetton's feel good attitude. The result? 6 refined, carefree playlists simultaneously capable of putting together the 70s, New Order, Amanda Lear and soul.
Blonde, with a degree in philosophy, an unhealthy obsession with Freudian psychology and Sartre essays: Giada Biaggi is a walking oxymoron. Author of the book Sylvia Plath's Bikini and stand-up comedian, she pokes fun at the hang-ups and contradictions of radical chic Milanesi. While still waiting for her first husband, you can find her at the Balera dell'Ortica, between readings and gin tonics, alongside her faithful cocker spaniel, Vittorio.
THE PLAYLIST BY GIADA BIAGGI
New Order and Amanda Lear on the same playlist? Of course, because Giada Biaggi's choices go down smooth like a happy-hour margarita, overlooking sunset: don't ask too many questions, just enjoy the beauty of the moment. Bottom's up.
