In Spring 2017, after the end of a ten years-long relationship, I left Rome and moved near the sea, in a small town in the countryside, in a magic valley called “Agro Pontino”, suggested by a friend. Having ceased the only reason why I had moved to Rome a long time ago, leaving, and moving elsewhere, was for me the most natural choice. I wanted to stay on my own, far from everything and immerse in the wild of nature, in a simple and quiet place, far from and tired of the confusion of the big city, in a sort of wonderful retreat. And here indeed I was born again. The sea healed me, I found peace, reconnecting to my Self, with the one I was at 18 before going at University, starting embracing again all the things I used to do at the time and that I had left behind there along the path. In the Summer, some months after my arrival, I’ve fallen in love again, of myself, of this place, and of a delicate woman named Anna. I stopped smoking after twenty years, and I started again playing music and doing many other things. I started listening to my soul and now we’re walking together. IL RITORNO (trilogia n.1) is the tale of the two years I spent there. It consists of three works, “NÒSTOS L’ultima sigaretta” is the first chapter and is about the place, which I talked to and spent a lot of time with, and that I tried to portray as It was a person. A place I can call “home”, and that was the scenery of the experiences I lived.
