The last day before I left my life in Lisbon, I jumped for the first time on Tram 24; The all famous tram that runs from Largo do Camões in Chiado to Campolide. I wanted to see Lisbon in all of its entirety and take it all in before I leave.
The Sun setting in the horizon pierced through the sandstorm. Barely keeping our eyes open, we cowered by the massive wooden gate and gave it three heavy pounds. A smaller door opened, with two eyes gazing at us. After a brief moment, we were allowed in.
The Italian Prophet
I met Roberto while on a project in Chiusi; a magical little town on the mountains in Tuscany. We started chatting in a park and he spoke of of his ideas on life. A few years ago, he had written a book. The book questioned our evolutionary views on human intelligence, nature and how we view one another with regards to race, culture and civilization.
He had sold 0 copies.
some years later, he compressed his ideas into 12 pages and put it on Amazon.
Still, no one noticed.
I told him that this generation can give you only 30 seconds. “Tell me what you have in mind and I will try to capture it.” What resulted was 7 minutes of video, which I have compacted into 3.5. It certainly doesn’t do what he had to say justice. But it is a start.
