Last day in Lisbon has come This rainy day started with a lovely breakfast at Mesa com Pao and then we walked in the Bairro Alto and we made a ride into the famous Santa Justa elevator! I love the views from the top of the Lisbon hills. And in general, I started to like “elevating myself” and see reality from

Rainy day means … change plans and enjoy the new ones! This was the last day of web summit 2018 and it started with a lot of rain. Watch the last speech of the president Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa. Very touching: the mission of all we want to create on Web is to create and sprout peace and freedom!   At

Slow day aka “la brillante esencia del momento”  Last night I found in my Airbnb room a book of Dale Carnegie “how to stop worrying and start living” (over 6million copies sold btw!!) and I read these sentences: – Don’t take yourself too seriously. Try just laughing at some of your sillier worries, and see if you can’t laugh them

Lisbon, a unique mixture of cities I’ve visited  For me, Lisbon is a big puzzle and mix of cities I love. Sometimes some alleys remind me of Naples with the clothes hanging out… but some climbs also remind me Paris … and other streets with arches the Venetian ”sottoporteghi”. Not to mention, the “trams” that remind me Milan and some colored

This was a really last last second journey: yesterday a girl from Ucraina sold me her ticket and I suddenly

Il Sultano e San Francesco. Non possiamo rinunciare alla speranza

Viviana/ January 9, 2015/ General/ 0 comments

Oriana, dalla finestra di una casa poco lontana da quella in cui anche tu sei nata, guardo le lame austere ed eleganti dei cipressi contro il cielo e ti penso a guardare, dalle tue finestre a New York, il panorama dei grattacieli da cui ora mancano le Torri Gemelle. Mi torna in mente un pomeriggio di tanti, tantissimi anni fa

Morire di satira. Che fare?

Viviana/ January 7, 2015/ General/ 0 comments

Che fare? Che fare ora, dopo aver asciugato le lacrime per i camarades di Charlie Hebdo? Che fare dopo aver pensato a quella volta con Wolinski, a Cuore, a cospetto del mito? Che fare dopo aver realizzato che il dolore più insensato ti sembra che un senso quasi ce l’abbia, una giustificazione inconscia che passa per la rimozione, fin quando

Il Seveso

E se proprio non riuscite a cogliere nemmeno un aspetto positivo nella piccola alluvione di ieri, se non vi sazia sapere che siamo una città che è in grado di mettere a posto le cose in una notte, domani, veder spuntare le pratoline sulle aiuole spartitraffico, magari aiuta.

Immergersi in una storia

Viviana/ November 17, 2013/ General/ 0 comments

Identificare la narrativa con il libro è un anacronismo: immergersi in una storia prende i connotati del tempo in cui questa nasce, non del supporto su cui finisce. Mafe su vanity fair
