Frau K.

P1190660

Frau K.

today I had to do something which I was not looking forward, but that’s life. Or rather, that’s death. You were my tenant, and one day you got all pampered and ready and went out to go to your shop, with your poodle in tow. You never came back. It is not for me to know what happened. A heart attack, I suppose. Sorry to hear that. I wonder where is your dog? Continue reading ‘Frau K.’

When we will be living abroad, and we will miss these colors….

4716-3I never bought a novel by Camilleri. Mind you, I’ve been tempted…and I am a Sellerio junkie…

But I always said “One day we will leave Italy. I will miss the Italian language, the sun, and maybe I will want to indulge in getting familiarised with the Sicilian dialect. I’ll save the pleasure of buying and reading these books for that (rainy) day”.

I have not bought the novels yet. Maybe because BBC4 every Sunday night dispenses my TV dose of Montalbano dope, be it Montalbano or Il Giovane Montalbano…and tonight, a special on Camilleri with Teresa Mannino.

But one day, I am sure, I will want to dive in those brightly sun-lit streets, those cedars, those incredible dishes…for some reason I still indulge in novels set in gray northern lights and Mitteleuropean fogs…but one day, those blue small books will be my arancini.

Roma la Bella

In nights like these I deeply miss Rome. There’s no particular charme of hanging out at night in Dusseldorf, for how cute she can be. The magnificient night is available only in Rome…and it is another European treasure we should be even more proud of…

Dusseldorf la Bella

1024px-Düsseldorf_Stich_1850Those were the times when Johannes Brahms hanged out with Clara and Robert Schumann….now listening to a magnificient Brahms Symphonie Nr. 3 Op.90 – Wiener Philarmoniker, September 2015 Bucharest via Euroradio. This is the European culture of which we should be even more proud…

Made in Berlin

IMG_6939There are beautiful things which are Made in Berlin, and more precisely, in Charlottenburg…

For me visiting Manufacta Est is always good for the soul and for the eyes: objects done by hand, with creativity and with time. Away from the compulsiveness of today’s life, Manufacta’s objects contain not only ideas, but are also a reservoir of time…
