Back in Istanbul

Finally I’m back in Istanbul and I’m in the mood to write on my blog again. The rule is that after 5 years of residence in a Country you put roots. All Companies say that, but I was hardly beleiving it before experiencing on myself. After over 7 years I was feeling so bad out of Istanbul and I am glad to have had the opportunity to come back. Now I feel like being back at home… This city is full of energy and its like as if being here... Read The Rest →

Remembering Federico

These few lines are ment to remember Federico Pecorini, a colleague who left us prematurely. Yesterday evening I had the news and tonight I dreamed about him.

Cose viste

Cose viste di Ugo Ojetti Mondadori, 1960 (ed.completa) Avagliano 2003 (antologia) 296 pp. 11 euro Un testo letterario può avere validità e significato sotto vari aspetti. C’è il valore letterario tout court, ma sicuramente in molti casi c’è anche il valore documentale, relativo a come l’autore ha cercato di tracciare il proprio ritratto personale di certe situazioni ambientate in un’epoca particolare. Il valore documentale è sempre presente nel buon giornalismo. Più difficile è trovare del giornalismo che abbia un significativo valore letterario, specie al livello di quella prosa d’arte che...

Today I decided to clean up my shoe rack. Too many shoes I thought , let’s throw away those I don’t use anymore. Looks easy but’s it is not. Nowadays we have many shoes, and we wear a different pair every day. So they last long time. Some of my shoes are even 20 years old and still new! Old shoes are  not like any other old garment. They walked with you many years, they took the shape of your feet, and how many memories! Really not easy to throw... Read The Rest →

The nature is like this

Today I went to the home of my parents with Ugo my brother to share their things. Obviously it has been very sad. There was also a letter for us from my mother. She wrote it in 1994, and said we should open it after both of them would be dead. We did it today. There where mostly words of love and recommendations for us. But beside the content, we could recognize her style and it was like hearing her voice again. I could not stop crying. We also thought... Read The Rest →
