Grazie Vittorio per la tua gentilezza e per averci regalato il tuo archivio di ricordi di cose che appartengono al passato ma hanno un aura di impermanenza. E' un vero peccato che non ci siamo conosciuti prima ma Napoli non è l'Australia, quindi prima o poi un altro giretto lo faremo di nuovo.

Thanks to Vittorio (agedsenator) for his kindness and for showing us a stream of timeless photos of great quality and for being the executive producer of Valpopando either ;-)
