When history meets with its actors, that is its events that tend to reshape its flow, sets aside the tiny neglected personal stories. It would hence, not be stopped neither by the pain nor the suffering of which constantly narrates. However, it would be for those human stories and their rarely mentioned trials in which the truth of real life lies. In the words of Italo Calvino; At times all we need is a brief glimpse, an opening in the midst of an incongruous landscape, a glint of lights in the fog, the dialogue of two passers-by meeting in the crowd, and I think, that setting out from there, I will pull together piece by piece, the perfect city made of fragments mixed with the rest, of instants separated by intervals, of signals one sends out, not knowing who receives them.
