Lusitania




Dowry of Mary












The open lands of Central Asia are still suffering the effects of three centuries of Russian oppression. Based on Chinese pseudo-historical documents, and in spite of their black hair and their slanting eyes, Kyrgyz students told me they were  descendants of a red-hair group of nomads who had the misfortune of mixing with the Tartars.




In 1917 the Virgen of Fatima came from Heaven to protect the Portuguese from the sorrows and destruction of two World Wars. On October the 13th the sun  fall over about seventy thousand witnesses. This event, that would have defy the scepticism of Gibbon and Hume, and which was not registered by any observatory, is still remembered by the inhabitants of Lusitania



In a time of scepticism only the English were able to built a Gothic Cathedral as their House of Parliament. Ancient dowry of Mary, England has been the epicentre of revolution and modernity. In London the passerby discovers a church in almost every square. The history of this island is the history of emancipation, an effort to conciliate merit with equality, wealth with justice, for while most of the English regard rituals with supiction, they have keenly understand the ethical value of the Word.

Barichara


From Narberth to Wynnefield, Temple, German Town and West Philadelphia to Las Vegas and Niagara Falls, and along roads that misteriously had become an allegory of freedom, I shared the American Dream for about five years.





Colombia, one of the most violent countries in the world, where to survive is a crime. A happy country, perhaps to much tipped towards pleasure and mockery -a legacy of both the conquistadores and its African diaspora. A foreigner pointed out that only in Colombia the sun shines in its true splendor.

Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita

mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,

che la diritta via era smarrita
