My music

From an early age I felt something inside me. Emotions. Dreams. Like music. But I still couldn’t realize it. The only thing I knew was that the world was traveling at another speed, with other times whereas my dreams and I, had to adapt to others.

AT LOWER VOICE

A ray of sunshine that came through the window, continuously lit up the desk halving it, hence separating me from the formal man, who kept talking to me, I would say uselessly.
Long moments of silence filled up the room, I didn’t speak, and I wasn’t going to allow others to look into my thoughts, entering my world.

LOVE HAD SAVED ME

The best choice for my life

At 24 years old, finished university, I met a guy who used heroin, I fell in love and we got together. In the end he was so different from me, I also liked to get high... I thought my life could not get worst than this. Since then, however, everything sank. It was inevitable. Before I knew it, it was too late… my only thoughts become drugs, only drugs. Everything revolved around that and all the rest I did not give a shit about.

FLOURISH FROM RUBBLE

Rediscover yourself

I was just over twenty years old. My life was made out of parties, discos, drugs and fun. I did not think about anything else.

I lived in Novi in Modena and on the 29th of May 2012 there was an earthquake. You can imagine the situation. My mom and my brother were in the civil protection housing. My dog and I were destined to stay in the tent. A friend of mine called me and asked me if I wanted to stay at his house.

Since that time, not only my city fell to pieces, but also all my life.

15 February 2017 Fili Spezzati - WeFree | San Patrignano

Broken wires

The phone rings, I hasten to answer.

I look at the screen; it’s him at last. I smile; I've been waiting for hours.
"Come down, I’m outside your house!"
I put my coat and hat on when I’m about to leave the house. My parents look at me furiously and begin pounding me with questions, to which I have no intention to answer.
"Are you going out tonight? You cannot do what you want. You have also stopped going to school. What do you want to become? Are you going out with him again, aren’t you? He will drag you into hell. Don’t go out tonight, stay home.

I WANTED to BE a ROCK STAR

Turned off my dreams

My story starts in Castiglione del Lago, a very pleasant village, immersed in the green hills of Umbria. Both my parents are from Calabria, my father worked for an insurance company and my mother was a teacher, they were both really cool parents, affectionate, loving, always present and since I was their only child, all their attention was directed to me.
Suddenly everything changed. We had to transfer back to Calabria, I abandoned everything, friends, home, the hills and all that was important to me.

The Ambassadors of Act Positive

Here is a small interview made by the We Free Crew of 2016 with Abramz, where he tells as a bit of his own experiences in San Patrignano and We Free Days in the years passed, and the whole concept of the We Free idea and how it grows in the worldwide net of ours, including the meaning of the award he received on this year’s edition.

PEPITA

Do you guys know what an oboe is?

Really?
When they asked me…I said “it’s a tropical bird”.
Funny right? Sorry, I should clarify one thing:
I am eight years old
And I stopped going to school a while back.
My parents never told me what an oboe was
And I never asked them.
I knew what a guitar was
A piano, a violin and trumpet
But not the oboe.
Today I play the oboe
My teachers tells me that I’m very good.
I play in a band and we are called "Pepita",

05 September 2016 A thought for us - WeFree Days

A thought for us

"Wefree", we are free, is one of the strongest messages that touched me by San Patrignano,

we are free only when we live free without relying on nothing. We are free when we decide to live up to our own ideals and not according to the ideals to a drug or something else.

DROP COMPANY

Social Freedom.

It means changing things.

Change them for the better, take them and mold them into something that helps you feel good, it makes us feel good wherever we are and with whomever we are with, because in the end to feel good you really don't need anything. Nothing more than what we already have.

What do we need to do it?

We need passion.

We need to believe. Get involved.

Sometimes you just need to throw yourself in.

ALI – TERMINI UNDERGROUND

If someone woke you up at 4 in the morning and said, 'Look, your work colleague is at the police station, high and drunk, dancing hip hop along with the immigrants, but doesn't even know them. Let's go and get him", what would you do?

Sometimes you have to throw yourself into things to begin to make a difference in their lives. Maybe I'm a bit strange, my work is that of a dance choreographer for theatrical shows, I have custody of my child and I still assume the risk of believing in people. I at four in the morning got dressed, I left my daughter at home and went.

Julie and Chris

“C’mon Chris don’t look at me like that, I feel embarrassed.”

“How else could I look at you, but don’t you see how beautiful you are?”

“… coming closer to each other,” Julie murmurs, like a breath of wind that caresses the skin. “Do you know that I dreamt of you last night? Being far away, I was shouting after you and you just smiled and looked at me. I was afraid that you had stopped loving me.”

FIFTEEN

They said, “go to 15 Westland PI.

There is friend of mine who has opened a restaurant, hires only ex-convicts. His name is Jamie.” Two weeks after being released from prison, the first thought I had was, “I hope everything goes ok, I need work but I cannot go back and live the life I had before.
