To some of you the name of Giuseppe Nelva (Shiryu Musashi in Second Life) could say little, but he is one of the most interesting Italian residents as demonstrated by the activities undertaken so far. Giuseppe / Shiryu in the Linden Lab metaverse designer and creator first of the fashion brand Musashi-Do and then of Musashi Motorsports is a marketing consultant and designer for RL companies who want to exploit the media potential of Second Life. A friend of Bianca Darling, creator and Ceo of Aspire fashion agency (and the homonymous famous SL-magazine dedicated to fashion), Shiryu for personal problems was absent from Second Life for several months and then returning last year in several quick reintegration interesting initiatives.
Some may even remember him like a careful judge of the beauty contest Miss JL Fashion organized by JL Show & Fashion performed on a rich choreography studied by Laragrace Rau and placed in the gardens of Piazza Italia with twenty handsome models of the Italian community of Second Life. But it is not in contests or (only) to his shops that Shiryu has devoted his time in recent weeks, since (as well as the development of a blog entirely independent of its presence in the metaverse, http://classygamer.blogspot.com, devoted to the world of video games outright long frequented by the online nickname of Abriael) the promotion of greater understanding in terms of design, thanks to the efforts of the Accademia del Lusso of Milan, the first Italian RL Academy to be landed on Second Life.
The most recent of these initiatives, which started this week, involves a series of lectures given by professors from the Academy in Second Life and introduced by Shyriu. At first, April 8, dedicated to the creative trends for spring-summer 2009, spoke Professor Manuela Rubertelli (intervened with his avatar, Mikado Rubble). Many questions raised by those present (not only Italian but an international audience, thanks to the decision to hold the event in English) to this prime-hosted, as they will then follow-up lessons at the virtual headquarters of the Academy, at the address http://slurl.com/secondlife/Montenapoleone/80/72/23. We have only to congratulate Shyriu and invite all those interested in fashion and design to follow in the next lesson, which certainly will prove just as exciting as the first.
