A Journey through the Exhibition “The Home of the Italian Identity”
Balance is the result of choices.
What do we want
Is it for us
Is it for you?
Are you us?
Cross the sea
Are you me?
Balance is the result of choices
Empty boot shape
In a full basin
On the Swiss shores
Kids silently playing
The heart boot of opulence and hate
Hunger of Chokora paper and waste
1300 is not a distance
Sugar coated leftovers
No Venice, left lovers,
no bells reverb
No marbles in Florence
The basin would echo the cry
Balance is the tone of our voices
Pigeons like seagulls
Following ships to den mittel Europa
Did find the plastic, did find the copper
Finally landed in Salzburg, Geneva
Rust cages, meat loafs
When lakes become fjords
Ships tend to drift-off
Bottle milk blue
Float not I am
Mold is new vintage
Bottle dry glue
More just percentage
Spring tender will you
Balance is the result of presence
Your birth cross the sea
The basin is full
1400 is not a number
You are us
Balance is the result of knowledge.
(Tommaso Bernabei's poetry)
