From Italy in COVID lockdown another weekly tale. The perception of an image can deeply change when a psychosis is affecting an entire country. . . . See you next week and I hope from a better situation! .
Another week and another print from the Italian COVID-19 insulation. President Trump made a great tweet to express his sympathy to Italians during this difficult situation. Here is my personal answer. A little edit of my post after few days. Sadly in this world, specially in Italy, if I simply state that this is “my personal answer” to a tweet by President Trump, people wrongly assume it will be a polemic or negative answer before they even watch the video. So here the message to be clear: I love the USA and I really appreciated President Trump tweet!!! . . . Take a look at my Thunderbirds’ Portfolio here. Keep the fight for health and freedom my friends! See you next week! .
I was reading a book few weeks ago, the main character was describing his grandfather and he wrote that his grandpa was used to say he had to get naked to count up to 21.So I arrived at print number 6 and decided to start to use the sign language to enumerate my prints before I was out of fingers! YouTube and FaceBook policies could be pretty restrictive about people counting up to 21. Now that you know you are ready to watch the video! . . . If you like to know more about the history of the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution an political philosophy, one of the great sources to start is the Hillsdale College. See you next week!
