Vinile Milano is one of the landmarks of the city nightlife. Located at 17 via Tadino, parallel to shopping neighborhood Corso Buenos Aires, Vinile Milano shares its address with the world-renowned art gallery Studio Marconi.
The term “vinyl” is commonly meant to define the stuff, starting the 1950s, way up to the 1980’s, analog sound storage mediums – better known as “records” – were made of.
The quality of a vinyl record is still unmatched by contemporary digital music standards. In fact, the bandwidth of an analog system is dependent on the physical capabilities of the analog circuits, while the signal-to-noise ratio of a digital system may be limited by the bit depth of the digitization process. Therefore, “vinyl” has come to encompass a cultural movement of people not really reluctant toward innovation, but somewhat cautious about the real performance of new devices or technologies.

Thursday night, we were invited, along with a small troop of friends, to the 50th birthday party of Vinile Milano boss, Gianluca Soresi.
Dress-code specified for the evening was: Hawayan Big Lebosky for him; Caribbean queen for her. The music was mixed by Fabrizio Fiore on a double deck console which is part of the standard equipment of the premise. The punch was tasty, fresh and alcoholic, just right for the heat of an early Summer night. The buffet, generous. The conversation, fluid. The company, friendly. The return, dizzy.
