I wonder why now, in 2016, I feel so much the need of my home city? Right. I left her, 25 years ago, in July. It must be the effect of time, revolving again and again. Or the layering of things that really count.

In a year in which our lives became even more scattered like the bits and pieces inside a kaleidoscope, and they recompose at each turn again and again, in different settings which repeat themselves, in Dusseldorf, in Leeds, in Berlin, next also in Rome, for some reason Trieste is popping up over and over again. It must be the need of the sea.

    …e io che pensavo di essere la sola a sperimentare queste nostaigie tardive, urgenti, improvvise. Napoli rimasta sempre sotto la pelle spunta fuori nei momenti più impensati, sempre più spesso, a intervalli ormai brevissimi. Tornare…magari

    In Aachen alles gut, ma ci sarebbe tanto da raccontare. Dobbiamo chiedere a Gippi di organizzarci una rimpatriata
