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. Feeling almost chained to a chair, anger biting at my stomach, but my body was too weak to be able to react, as it would have liked. The words of that doctor were talking about solutions, measures and something that I was […]

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 […]
