I have been bombarded.
I have always considered Milan to be a city that could be place some where in the Atlantic… In the middle of everywhere, in the middle of nowhere instead of in the boot.
Italy is a country rich in culture, rich in past… but Milan seems Brand New, even the Duomo seems to be pin-placed in the city after the city was build as is.
Milan have been hurt, invaded, segregated… have been bombarded. Now plays the independent, a rock for her own as well for the rest. Showing that face that rather to hide, wering the fashion on its flag… Playing the unrichable at the highest of the oldest shopping mall on earth, playing the precious, luxury, playing the strong. With so many weakness, with so many flaws.
Try to crack the picture perfect and try not to be shallow, the streets aren’t, either in the surface, neither the Metropolitana.
The scars are everywhere, yes, track them down on the rails of Tram 9.
