Italy 1989

As in a book in which the characters have been omitted, I try to tell a story reporting only the auxiliary elements of the tale. Mattresses, sofas, vases, canes and boxes, are as silent witnesses that have formed the set where scenes of the story took place. The story is my personal story and talks about childhood's games and awesomeness, staged thanks to some symbols without which there would be no story.
