MEANWHILE WE WERE SHINING, And meanwhile we were shining. In the white light that covers up the Obscure, in despite of all, we shine, we are like light tightrope walkers and we hold  coloured balloons in our hands.

This display case is consecrated to the opening, to the dialogue. The inscription "ti ascolto"/"I am listening to you" resides in an empty and neutral space in the background: it means that there is no prejudice, no preconception, only  the willingness to listen to whatever can be told, giving free hand, filling this open space with words, with a tale, with any form of communication.
