My first year inside a pandemic. What did it leave of positive or negative in our deep soul? Sticky post

My 1˚ year inside a pandemic. What did it leave positive or negative in our deep soul?

By Massimo Usai My “pandemic” year began on the evening of Wednesday, March 05 2020, when I was forced to cancel the air tickets I had purchased a week earlier. The ticket was for an early spring weekend to pass between Rome and Naples. For the first half of that week, I had tried to metabolize and analyze the increasingly disturbing news related to covid-19 … Continue reading My 1˚ year inside a pandemic.

Strade e terrazze vuote

Che Si Aprano Le Terrazze, Ho Bisogno Del “Rumore”

By Massimo Usai È ufficiale, le terrazze e i locali di mezza Europa riapriranno nel mese di Maggio. Onestamente, stavo iniziando a pensare che questo giorno non sarebbe mai arrivato. Alcuni forse pensano che non sia abbastanza, e possono anche non considerare un ritorno alla normalità, ma il fatto che qualcosa e qualcuno ritornerà in strada, è un bel giorno da festeggiare. “Rumore” Vi ricordate … Continue reading Che Si Aprano Le Terrazze, Ho Bisogno Del “Rumore”

Per la prima metà di quella settimana, avevo cercato di metabolizzare ed analizzare le notizie sempre … Continue reading Il mio ( e il nostro ) 1˚ anno nella “Pandemia”. Un’esperienza collettiva.

Cooking has saved and changed my life this past year. Here’s how it happened

By Massimo Usai When the first lockdown kicks out last March in Italy, I had a kind of feeling, was it ready to come to Warsaw, where I was living at the time. So, I went to the supermarket, and I bought so many ingredients that I didn’t have clear idea on how to use it.

Everyone’s Life

By Massimo Usai I fear that the Institutions and Doctors’ noble idea of convincing No Vax to get vaccinated through scientific arguments are in vain. The No Vax have no scientific opinions to oppose, being graduates of the university “of the street”, masters of themselves, the last of the rebels, informed through social networks videos. The No Vax think that the institutions want to cheat … Continue reading Everyone’s Life

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

Mi Manca il Viaggiare. Ma Come Sara’ il Viaggio nel futuro?

.Bruxelles 06.December.2020 La mattina e’ nuvolosa. No, decisamente e’ solo grigia. Come puo’ essere nei cieli dell’Europa centrale quando Dicembre non ha ancora deciso cosa fare.  Freddo non e’. Ma neppure tiepida e’ l’aria. Non piove. Non nevica. Non ci sono nuvole che puoi distinguere, ma solo un manto grigio che sembra fermo sulla tua testa per giorni, alle volte, settimane. Sono questi i momenti … Continue reading Mi Manca il Viaggiare. Ma Come Sara’ il Viaggio nel futuro?

The hopes for the new world? First, look back and then move forward.

Brussels 25.November.2020 The hope is that, after what we’ve been through, our way to be back to the “new normal” will be cleaner and greener, where more people will be more attract of the quality of life and not just greedy and racist.
