The Night of the living dead

Horror movies have not only been merely tools of entertainment, as it might appear today. Nowadays horror movies are meticulously planned with well crafted scenic designs, stunning photography, and “bu”-effects that aim at keeping the tension high.

“My God is the God of the wayfarers”

I am not a religious person. I was raised Catholic, I did all the Church steps till I was a teenager. Then I started to think, and I realized that I did not find myself in that. I believe in humans. I believe that their abilities are far bigger than we realize. I believe that … Continue reading “My God is the God of the wayfarers”

The Portuguese way

I left Italy many years ago. Since then I have been happy, and I have been sad. I have been explaining over and over the Italian gestures and I had fun every time. I left many people on the way. Many good friends left behind by the different rhythm our lives took. I also met … Continue reading The Portuguese way

Art is resuscitating a dying beauty

I come from a really small region in the south of Italy. It is wild, authentic, slow. It is high and low, sunny and cold, colourful and dark.

Norbert is an happy man. When you see his happy round face, with his thick moustache, and his ruffled grey hair, you cannot avoid smiling. Norbert is a smart man. You can talk about everything with him, from cell biology to politics, from carpentry to fanta-science. Norbert is an active man.

From handwarmers to snowflakes and what they have in common

This weekend the winter really arrived. It is freezing cold out here and I finally get my hopes up for some snow to arrive (pleaaase!). Ever since I was a small child, snow raised fascination inside myself as it probably did for most children. And also now, every year I hope for a white Christmas. … Continue reading From handwarmers to snowflakes and what they have in common

Let’s go shopping in Congo!

While I was reading about environmental problems and land use, I stumbled upon a news that shocked me quite a bit. Well, I guess that it is a common knowledge that we, the humankind, are quite dirty, greedy, gluttonous being. We like to eat a lot, often we eat to much (I encourage you to … Continue reading Let’s go shopping in Congo!
