Two moons

1606museoimmigrante

Staring from the window of the “hotel de los inmigrantes” in Buenos Aires, the gateway of  millions of immigrants arrived with the boats one century ago.
Mi ricordo anni fa, chiacchieravo con Moacir, un affabile contadino di Ilha do Ouro, paesino rurale del Sertão brasiliano. Non riusciva a credere che esistessero altre terre oltre il suo orizzonte. Mi chiedeva se la luna e le stelle della “mia terra” fossero le stesse di lì. Immaginava ci  potessero essere due, tre, cento lune.
Ecco, ora io posso immaginare che i primi immigrati italiani (e da altre parti del mondo) che venivano da villaggi molto poveri potessero pensare che ci fossero due lune. Una che si specchiava sul mare davanti a Fuscaldo e che avevano lasciato… un’altra che li aspettava in Argentina.

Big celebration in Sarajevo: national football team goes to Brazil

Almost 10.000 of people joyfully invaded streets and squares of Sarajevo to celebrate, cheerfully and all night long, the Bosnia-Herzegovina qualification to the next football world cup in Brazil. For many Bosnians, the historic success represent a rare cause for celebration in a daily life marked by dramatic unemployment rate (almost 50%) and ethnic divisions.

The ironic notice “Skupljam pare za Brazil” (I collect money to go to Brazil) showed by a group of football fans, reminds us the local economic reality as well as the amazing ability of Bosnian to face hard life with good humour.
