  Tic Toc...tempus fugit...Tic Tӧch (title in Piedmontese language – the first language of the Unity of Italy)...Italy is falling into pieces: "Italy, a never completed jigsaw puzzle, faces the new millennium: the young – a guiltless minority – shall reassemble it. Hands, mind and heart..."
A cry of anguish and hope for an uncertain future. Let’s reassemble Italy.

(Daniele Basso – Turin, July 2012)
