COVID-19 Spring Didn’t Know

It all started on March 11, 2020, the streets emptied, shops closed, and people no longer went out. But Spring did not know, and the flowers kept blooming.

It is difficult to be home all day, but then you think at those that are in hospital fighting for a breath of air. Then it is not difficult anymore, you feel fortunate instead.

Today my next-door neighbor and I texted each other and met downstairs on the internal court of our condominium. Like inmates we gave ourselves 1 hour air time, naturally keeping a distance from one another.

Now the time has come to be positive. 

#Andrà Tutto Bene #We Shall Overcome

Everything shall be alright.

Summer will come because she doesn’t know either. And in spite of everything, despite the virus, despite the fear, despite death, we shall overcome.


Italy shall be here for you again.

I lived the most part of my life in Washington DC, now in Italy getting to know again my country. Plenty of surprises, for good and bad, and lots of nostalgia for DC.
