Grazie Praga!
10 Marzo 2023

“Thank you Rome, You make us live and feel again, A new person”. So Antonello Venditti sang many years ago, and what was a love song to his city then became a trans-generational anthem in the following decades. Now, I don't want Romans and Romanists, and I am surrounded by it being first and foremost a Roman from Rome, but today I would like to try to slightly modify Venditti's text to sing my thanks to another city, another capital: Prague. Yo...

5 propositi per il 2023
3 Gennaio 2023

We broke up in 2022 with this post in which I tried to share the 10 lessons learned in 2022. With today's post, the first post of a 2023 that has just begun, I will try to share with you the 5 good resolutions for the new year. Let's be clear: it is my intention to try to write not some classic intentions like going on a diet, being better, and bla bla bla. No. I will try, as I always do in this blog, to go deep into my depths and tell it without ...

10 lezioni imparate nel 2022
31 Dicembre 2022

It is said that every year trees increase the number of rings that make up their trunk, thus becoming bigger and stronger. What about us humans? Well for us it's a little different because every year brings with it good and bad things, lessons and regrets, falls and defeats, but it's not said that all of them necessarily have their use. For my part, in an attempt to ensure that everything I have experienced in this 2022 which is drawing to a close...

Destini non scritti
9 Dicembre 2022

William James said: "The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can change their lives by changing their mental attitude."We have known since the dawn of time that those who think positive in life are more able to achieve their personal, sentimental, family and work goals. And it's not a matter of luck, woe to trivialize the speech in this sense. Those who look positively (which does not mean with "naive illusion") at life simply...

L'effetto Zeigarniker
7 Dicembre 2022

Have you ever heard of the Zeigarniker effect? I'm sure that to the vast majority of you this term means nothing yet it is something we all experience on a daily basis. The Zeigarniker effect is none other than that sort of disquiet mixed with anxiety that we feel when faced with unfinished business. We watch a film and if an "interrupt" distracts us and prevents us from seeing the ending we get paranoid. A person on the phone is telling us som...

“In life you have to take everything at once. Waiting is for losers. Those who have time don't wait for time”… And I could go on for quite a while. I have reported only some of the phrases that are so popular right now to ask you and ask ourselves, we all agree that the "politics" of this historical period has completely erased concepts such as patience, waiting, knowing wait? I really think so. Immediacy is one of the main figures of our days. We...

Omnia cum tempore
5 Dicembre 2022

It will be due to Benedetto Croce with his "a man is what he does" (which to tell the truth we may have misunderstood), the fact is that a typical trait of modern man is his oscillation between acting and reacting. Basically our days, our lives in general, alternate between actions that start something and reactions that are instead the natural continuation, perhaps as a consequence, of what we did yesterday.We have transferred this hyperactivity ...

Coca cola, e la vita degli altri
17 Novembre 2022

You can't judge the life of others by not living it from within just as you can't guess the formula of a drink simply by drinking it.This sentence came to my mind the other day. I was out and about, at a restaurant, and a local patron had ordered his iced Coca Cola, promptly brought to the table by the diligent waiter. I looked at that glass and thought of how many, by now there will be billions, have tasted Coca Cola at least once. Many, many bil...

Gabbiani di discarica
31 Ottobre 2022

I have always been fascinated by the similarities between three birds and people. There are crows who, notoriously, are those types a bit halfway between hooligans and fans of death and its surroundings. There are the "swallows", alias the spies, those who usually bring you confidential information. And then there are the jackals, those who take advantage of a person's difficult situation to exploit him, to the point of making him die.Well, I have...
