You go to a city and you find an old classical sculpture next to a skyscraper. You are in front of two constructions separated by a 2500 years. And nothing happens. The constant accumulation of History causes the past to become incidental, while the present takes centre stage. But the present is subtle and fragile, and it seems that no historic event today has the weight it should have. Whatever the century, each of us has told ourselves our own story to understand better why we are where we are. But the Sky, permanently present and immortal, observes, astonished, our saturation of references and models. And, even while thinking we choose the best, the same stories are repeated once and again. Whether it be riding a horse while wearing a white tunic or travelling in a tracksuit on a RyanAir plane. And the Sky laughs because, in the end, this is the tragic story of people.
