Black and gold, as the glamour of a premiere imposes, and as the stage setting suggests, but also the red dedicated to the victims of femicide and the purple of historical feminism: it is an almost breaking December 7 that of Don Carlo at the Teatro alla Scala. A Milanese break the lines, where the detachment from tradition - which would not want certain colors in the theater, much less at the opening of a season like that of the Piermarini - responds to the need for greater adherence to the current moment.
And in the year in which the real protagonist of the evening is the senator for life Liliana Segre, guest of the Royal Box together with the mayor Beppe Sala, the president of the Senate Ignazio La Russa, the ministers Matteo Salvini and Gennaro Sangiuliano, many of the guests have chosen to remember, with their clothes, Giulia Cecchettin and Giulia Tramontano, the two victims who have become the symbol of the fight against violence against women. There are those who have painted a red mark on their face, those who - like the playwright Sabina Blacks - have worn red shoes and those - the plastic surgeon Dvora Ancona - have chosen an entire dress in the color that is the cry of revolt against patriarchal violence. More philological was the choice of the actress Sarah Maestri, in a purple Atelier Emé gown dress, that - she explained - of the feminism of the suffragettes.
Many were inspired by the colors of the opera, the black and gold that dominate the La Scala stage, from Chiara Bazoli, partner of the mayor Giuseppe Sala, in a long Armani Privé dress, to Alessandra Repini, in a gold dress with black fur designed by Lella Curiel, who chose the same colors for Laura Morino Teso. As always, there were many guests dressed by Giorgio Armani, from the international artistic quota embodied by Pedro Almodóvar and Louis Garrel, both in tuxedos, to the etoile of La Scala Nicoletta Manni and her husband, the principal dancer Timofej Andrijashenko. Emma Marcegaglia's all-black frock coat dress is beautiful, as is Giovanna Salza's all-black frock coat, with red roses embroidered in homage to the work.
Still red, but curtain-colored, for the director of the Franco Parenti theater Andree Ruth Shammah, in a tribute to the theater.
Roberto D'Agostino's outfit is curious, in a Yamamoto coat worn on the skin with visible tattoos and a fur and pleated kilt. Among the most beautiful and elegant guests, Lucrezia Guidone, film and theater actress protagonist of the third season of Mare Fuori, in a long tulle dress embroidered with a floral motif and full skirt in boned horsehair signed by the designer Antonio Riva. Among the politicians, notable are the Armani tuxedos with rhinestone bow tie for the Milanese councillor Tommaso Sacchi, and the black tuxedo with tie by Valentino chosen by the Lombard councillor Barbara Mazzali.
Among the guests of the evening there was also Ornella Vanoni, accompanied by the artist Francesco Vezzoli, the singer-songwriter Patti Smith, who arrived with a friend, the actor Neri Marcoré and the whole world of Milanese entrepreneurship, from Donatella Javarone to Arturo Artom, who after the first hosted a dinner at Cracco in the Galleria with guest Morgan.
