Latest title from Milan’s hotbed of fashion style, the opulent 10 Corso Como. This time, the theme is ‘Il sacro e il profano’, ‘Sacred and profane’.‘Profane’ takes the form of rhythm and dance, sometimes seen by the ecclesiastical fraternity as a threat to morality and goodliness (check out the Papal response to the rise of tango in Argentina). Featuring Harry Belafonte (with "Angelina"), Caetano Veloso (with the delightful "Rumba Azul") and Duke Ellington (with "The Mooche"). And finally Blues, the devil’s music ‘par excellence’, merits mention, so here you will find "Hoochie Coochie Man" by Muddy Waters, a sort of manifesto of the “most profane Profane” one can imagine.
