Sanremo 2010 and the other Italy

Stories and News No. 111

The Story:

We are us.
We are the ones that last night didn’t watch the Sanremo Festival.
We are the ones that have lost Antonella Clerici’s elegance, the smart remarks by Antonio Cassano and the stunning lines of the Morgan’s song read by the presenter.
We are those who won’t even listen to the next fascinating performances of the big and the new generation artists of Italian pop music.
We won’t watch, glued on the screen, the greatest television event of the year, culminating in the glittering final.
We do not.
The fact is that we could not even if we wanted.
Because on the roofs there are the antennae but there is no TV...

Because a landslide went in the house and we could not sit on the couch and turn on the television…

Because we are the dead by work and, you know, in the afterlife there are people like Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, and even Beethoven and Bach…

Because we had the privilege to get to Italy and earn enough to survive, but we still don’t get a TV...

And because we were born in Italy, but it doesn’t necessarily correspond to an advantage...

We are us.
We are the ones that this year will not watch the Sanremo Festival.
We are those who have not seen last year too.
We are the ones that probably will loose it next year.
We're the ones who have missed these pearls of Italian TV.
At least in this, we are lucky...
