A message from Italy

A message from Italy in quarantine to American friends: we are all under the same sky and the sky will clear again.

I am sending you a splendid poem, a short poem written by a famous Italian poet: Giuseppe Ungaretti.

The title is “Morning” and the verses are as follows:

M’illumino d’immenso.

The Italian language is very harmonious and sounds like music.

In English they mean: I enlight myself with the immense.

Stay at home. Stay safe.

I am a lover of wolves and of Nature in general. With the means of knowledge and awareness, I try to devote myself to the protection of the environment and of the endangered species, as far as I can do. I live in Turin, Italy. I’m a teacher, a writer and a photographer. I published a novel and a book of tales and have to my credit about ten one-man exhibitions of photos. I’m member of the board of a no-profit association of Turin, “Tribù del Badnightcafè”, that organizes cultural and artistic events. Besides I created a group of volunteers to help women who are victim of domestic violence.
