RetroMagazine World #2 – Eng – August 2020

Editorial by Francesco Fiorentini

Holiday time, memory time…Summer, with its torrid heat and hot nights came to visit all of us again. Probably now more than ever warmth and temperatures above average have been expected with such trepidation. After a horrible winter and spring, this summer is not only synonymous with holidays, but also a slow return to the normal life for some of us. Who’s writing have been living abroad for few years nowand summer is one of the most awaited moments to be able to return to Italy and embrace friends and family. This year you can easily imagine how ardently I was waiting for the possibility to travel again and return to the places of my youth. For those who live far from their home country the chance to return once or twice a year is like browsing through a memory album. Finding places and people youhaven’t seen in a long time makes you want to know what happened in the meantime and likewise the possibility of making a comparison with what it was and what it is… The funniest thing, at least for me, is noticing how the little changes are much more impressive than the big ones. They’re not so obvious, and when you see them, you make an immediate comparison.
