...AND PUTS IT ASIDE

eolo tomassoni eclecticism


​THE GREAT MASTERS OF THE RENAISSANCE ARE THE MASTERS OF EOLO TOMASSONI. THE CONCEPT THAT A MAN MUST ONLY MAKE A TRADE OR PRACTICE, IS RHETORIC BASED ON PRECONCEPTIONS. 
THE MAN, THE REALITY THAT SURROUNDS HIM, AND THE SUPERNATURAL ELEMENT ARE THREE ELEMENTS OR ARCHETYPES OF ECLECTICISM AND THE LIFE OF EOLO TOMASSONI. 
THE MAN ON THE CENTRE STAGE, WITH HIS DIVINE OR INFERNAL CAPACITY IS THE CHALLENGE OF EVERY ARTIST. BUT ALSO RESEARCHING AND GETTING INVOLVED IN EVERY ASPECT OF ART, HENCE THE ECLECTICISM.



HIP HOP

​1984 WAS A HISTORIC YEAR 

​1984 WAS A HISTORIC YEAR MARKING THE BEGINNING OF HIS PASSION FOR MUSIC, MICHAEL JACKSON WITH HIS VIDEO TO BILLIE JEAN OPENED A WINDOW TO STREET DANCE AND THE MOON WALK. AND THUS FOLLOWED BY THE FILMS FLASH DANCE, FAME, BREAKING AND BEAT STREET. EOLO STARTED TO MEET YOUNG AMERICANS THAT ALREADY DID BREAKDANCING, AND STARTED IT UP AS A NEW CHALLENGE, AND AFTER THAT HE WAS A DJ SCRATCHING OR CUTTING AS WELL AS PERFORMING HUMAN BEAT BOX AND RAP. BUT ALSO SOMETHING CONSIDERED TOTALLY NEW, GRAFFITI ART. NO LONGER THE BRUSH, BUT THE BOTTLE. THE FIRST GRAFFITI IN ROME, ON THE METRO, UNDER THE BANKS OF TEVERE AND ON METRO STOPS ARE BY EOLO. HE WAS PART OF A KNOWN BREAK DANCE GROUP CALLED THE "FLOOR MASTERS" WITH JIMMY FERNANDEZ, NOW PART OF THE LATIN AMERICAN RAP GROUP "LATIN POZZE" AND ALSO MATTHEW GARRISON, NOW AN ACCOMPLISHED SAXOPHONIST. HE ALSO KNOWS THE MICIONI BROTHERS, DJS AND MUSIC PRODUCERS OF STARS OF THE TIME SUCH AS GAZEBO, FAMOUS FOR THE RECORD I LIKE CHOPIN AND OTHERS. EOLO WAS ALSO A FRIEND OF SEBY RUOCCO KNOWN AS ICE ONE A WELL-LOVED RAPPER AND DJ OF ROMAN HIP-HOP CULTURE. HERE ARE SOME HISTORICAL PHOTOS.

​FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: MARIANO SALVIATI, PIETRO MICIONI, PAOLO MICIONI, PHIL CLARY (PIPPO) AND EOLO TOMASSONI (CHINO ET). 
THE LIVE JOCKEY WAS A VERY INTERESTING AND FASCINATING TIME OF EOLO’S LIFE, AT THAT TIME THE COMPUTER MUSIC WAS NOT YET SO PROGRESSED. THEY, THE LIVE JOCKEYS, WITH A MAC PC AND KEYBOARD, MADE MUSIC AS DJS DID WITH DISCS, EVEN PUTTING IN SOME BACKING TRACKS, SOME A CAPPELLA AND ALSO PLAYING GUITAR AND BASS LIVE. ALL CROWNED BY MC PHIL CLARY AND THE DJ SCRATCHER CHINO ET. WHEN WE PERFORMED THE PUBLIC REALLY WENT INTO DELIRIUM AND ENJOYED IT A LOT.



BEIJING OPERA
​​

​THE JOURNEY TO CHINA THAT EOLO MADE IN 1997, WAS NOT ONLY FOR THE LANGUAGE BUT ESPECIALLY THE CHINESE CULTURE. ONE YEAR AFTER HE STARTED HIS LANGUAGE COURSE HE MADE FRIENDS WITH A JAPANESE CLASSMATE, A GIRL NAMED MO YONG MAZI WHO HAD A BOYFRIEND WHO STUDIED BEIJING OPERA. ONE DAY SHE INVITED HIM TO WATCH A PERFORMANCE AND FROM THAT MOMENT ON HE OFTEN WENT TO SEE BEIJING OPERA SHOWS. ONE DAY HE ASKED AN ACTOR TO BECOME HIS MASTER, ALTHOUGH HE WAS SURPRISED HE ACCEPTED THE REQUEST, AND STARTED TRAINING HIM, BECAUSE BEIJING OPERA IS NOT JUST SINGING, IT IS THE COMPLETION OF ALL THE CHINESE ARTS INCLUDING EVEN MARTIAL. AFTER A LITTLE WHILE THE MASTER NAMED QI JIAN GUO HAD TO GO TO AMERICA, AND INTRODUCED HIM TO HIS FORMER TEACHER, A FAMOUS BEIJING OPERA ACTOR, ZHAO YUAN XIA,WHO HAD ALSO PLAYED THE MONKEY KING. THEREFORE EOLO STUDIED CHINESE UNTIL NOON AND THEN WENT DIRECTLY TO STUDY AT THE BEIJING INSTITUTE OF OPERA, WHERE ALL THE ACTORS AND ACTRESSES TRAINED. A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE. NOW HE SAW SHOWS NOT AS A SPECTATOR BUT BACK STAGE. SO AFTER A YEAR OF TRAINING, HIS MASTER ENTERED HIM IN AN INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION FOR AMATEURS OF BEIJING OPERA. EOLO GAVE HIS PERFORMANCE AND WON THE SILVER DRAGON. THIS FILM DEBUT IN CHINA LIVE ON TV MADE EOLO VERY FAMOUS IN FACT HE MADE APPEARANCES ON TV AND ALSO IN CINEMA. EOLO HOWEVER DOES NOT LOVE THE LIMELIGHT SO HE WENT TO VISIT DIFFERENT PARTS OF CHINA TO GET TO KNOW THIS COUNTRY IN THE PROCESS OF CHANGE UNTIL REACHING HAINAN ISLAND, A SUBTROPICAL PARADISE THAT OFFERED HIM NEW HORIZONS.

​RESTAURANT

​WHAT STARTED OUT JUST FOR FUN, NO ONE WOULD HAVE IMAGINED THAT THE RESTAURANT AVE ROMA WOULD END UP IN THE LONELY PLANET GUIDE. 
A UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT IN ALL OF CHINA. IN FACT THE FURNITURE AND THE SPIRIT OF THE RESTAURANT WAS TOTALLY INSPIRED BY ANCIENT ROME. EOLO HERE GAVE EVIDENCE OF HIS CAPACITY AS A DECORATOR AND ALSO AS A BUSINESSMAN.
