Starting over from thought: between project and action

11 March 2017 at 16.45, Pescara Aurum Fabbrica delle idee

The meanwhile is the space between saying and doing, theory and action. It is a space in which a human being creates and organises what he wants to achieve. It is a wide field of possibilities and new projects. Here the thought proliferates, develops and produces. In a world where the present often worries and oppresses , where everything is simultaneous and instantaneous, “taking time” becomes an ethical and even a revolutionary act, a choice to reset and restart, in order to rebuild the future with new strength and confidence.
