Just a year ago, I was going to celebrate New Year’s Eve, down in Sardinia. In the morning I had gone for some shopping that I would take to be back in Europe … Continue reading What if my shaving cream was responsible for all this chaos? /E se il responsabile di tutto questo caos fosse solo la mia schiuma da barba?
by Massimo Usai Yes, it was a beastly year. A year that runs through history in an impetuous and different way from many critical years for some peoples rather than others is the year of mass suffering globalization. Everyone in every corner of the hemisphere had (and continue to have) the exact same problem: the Virus, but, regardless of what happens in the world, arrived … Continue reading The Best Music of 2020

I was puzzled by my reaction until I remembered the … Continue reading Wet mats that stimulate memories / I Tappetini Bagnati dei miei ricordi.

From my camera perspective, I want to show you what mean for a town like London be completely empty. It’s still magic, but it’s scary at the same time. London has always been the town … Continue reading Christmas Time in London During the Lockdown

Recently I have opened a shop online, and … Continue reading Putney , SW15 – London
By Massimo Usai So, okay. 2020 hasn’t been the year many of us expected. To be clear, it was anything remotely like we could ever have possibly imagined in our wildest dreams. Either after a night out based with decadent drink and loud techno music. The pandemic has changed lives in so many ways already, and we still don’t know what other impacts it’s going … Continue reading The Point Of The 2020 And The Prospective For The Next Year. / Prospettive per il prossimo anno
Brussels – Belgium After a night of wind howling through the window and the back door, I wake to silent dawn. The rain that drummed on my window all night turned to ice when a cold front moved in early in the morning. A thick, freezing fog has settled outside, and I’m preparing my coffee thinking that soon I will face the first sparkling frost … Continue reading Above It All, Could Still Be A Nice Day / Sopra ogni cosa, comunque puo’ essere una bella giornata
