Nidodileda… once you spell it right, you won’t forget it!
According to Dante’s Comedy, Nidodileda (Nido di leda) symbolizes “Leda’s nest”. Leda was Zeus’s mistress and mother of his twin sons, Castor and Pollux (known together as Dioscuri). Castor and Pollux were awarded a constellation, Gemini, for their brotherly love, and that constellation lays in Nidodileda.
Nidodileda is not only about clothing.
It's a philosophy, an idea which makes you feel free… #nidoblog curated by Marianna Serveta

Who wouldn't want to make love to an automobile? Who wouldn't be angry if (s)he was stopped from licking the head of a toad? Wouldn't it be crazy to be told by the police to carry your coins in your pockets, instead of your ears? Who wouldn't be driven mad if (s)he had to pay a fine for spitting on a seagull? And I mean.. who wouldn't feel offended for being prosecuted for carrying their violin in a paper bag? But is the punishment of the action or the action per se that is mostly weird?
“What’s most beautiful, is what disappears before your eyes” That was the leading directive of Naomi Kawase’s latest film, Radiance (2017), a thoughtful study and meditation on senses and cinema. In the storyline, we are following a writer of audio versions of films for the visually impaired audience, during the processing of the descriptions of her latest movie with a focus-group of blind or partially sighted individuals. Among the individuals of the focus-group is a photographer, who is gradually losing his sight, yet desperately struggling to hang on to the fragments of the visual world. While the plot unravels itself, we are following various layers of narrative and story-telling in forms of synecdoche (interrelated levels of analysis), quite untypical for the Japanese style of film-making.
