Fashion Clothing From 1987I guess the progression of the list caught you off guard, yes, the third to the last event was one of the most important. (I was born). Lol.

The world was moving through a transition in technology to get most of the finer things in life. In the Philippines, it was also an interesting period. It was a year after the fall of a dictatorship.

So what's the segue?
I bet you figured, hahaha!

Well, allow me to take you back to 1987 through the lenses of the artworks that Ciro did during that time.

Indeed, he was contributing a lot to the preservation of fine art, that is, on 1987 he had a mostra (exhibit) in the beautiful coastal city of Desenzano in Lombardy, Italy.

In this post, I will show you never-before-seen photos (a familiar phrase circus hosts say, sorry I had to write that, it creates some sort of flavor. hahaha!) of Ciro along with Chiara Lubich (Founder of the Focolare Movement) in Desenzano.

Also, these photos will show the humble and grand beginnings of Ciro as he shares to the world: hand-made art.

Pamphlet used for "LA CORNICE" (THE FRAME exhibit)
In his gallery La Cornice (see photo on left for his sample pamphlet), he showcased a lot of his artworks.

The photos that will follow are still monochrome (B&W) and are treasures for him. Last night I showed him these photos before proceeding to write this blog, and I went with him on a time-travel experience.

Everything was vivid to him. It's interesting to note that 4 days after that gallery, I was born.

When I told him this, he replied, "I made that gallery for your birthday, but that means I'm too old now, eh???" and we burst into laughter!

Here are other photos, kindly read in the captions for more detail.

Those peculiar things on the wall are part of his early artworks.
