Cleaning the roof of a church in Ascoli Piceno has brought back dozens of them, even from the 1970s. Memory of a country without cell phones is played more on the street. And he went to the World Cup
These are days of unforgettable photos. Images that remain imprinted in our brain, even if we don’t want to. Horror, oppression, and death come from Ukraine: corpses on the roadsides, destroyed buildings, children in basements, columns of homeless. Those who take war too risky to talk about it in the bar or on TV think of the man who caused all this. If you justify it, be ashamed. Suddenly there it is: a completely different picture.
What you see on the page
picture Which impressed many of us in Courier service Vary in age, experience and sensitivity. An image that seems to emerge from the childhood of some, from the dreams of others, and from the desires of all. Picture tearing the smile and note: Italy is an enormous place, where poetry, beauty, and genius are often unintentional. We don’t do it on purpose to be that good, when we’re so good. Not even our neglect is always voluntary; much for.

They found dozens of them cleaning the ceiling of the Basilica of San Tommaso in Ascoli PicenoIn light of the restoration of the structure damaged in the 2016 earthquake. Generations of children have sent them there, playing soccer on the field.

Mayor Ascoli Piceno, Marco Ferravanti, says:: Among those balls, many were modern. There are still children playing in the yard today. Less than once, but there. We want to believe it, no one will ask about the history of balloons. But an impression, from the feedback, that they are a collective regret. Those balloons—white, blue, orange, square, inflated, deflated, covered in mould, and covered in mud—are the story of a country where children run through the yards, grandparents watch, and the coordinator mumbles, but lets Italy go to the World Cup, and maybe they won it.
