e un microchip emozionale
Labbra cromate, ricordi seriali
Emozioni e un nuovo impianto sessuale
(Microchip emozionale, 1999)
No movies, no music, no websites, no books. Nothing was Italian. I needed to immerse myself in the new language, to make it mine. To start to feel it as mine. This first phase lasted more than six months. Almost no Italian at all.
While speaking and thinking in German all the time, I suddenly fell in love with my mother tongue. I discovered how melodic, sweet and harmonious it sounds. I began to see it with new eyes, and when my German has improved, I slowly recovered Italian movies, books and songs. Songs, above all. The music is the thing I missed the most.
In these days I'm listening to a lot of Italian music and a lot of Subsonica's songs in particular. They are a band based in Turin, famous in Italy and abroad. And, by walking on the streets of Berlin and listening to music from Turin, I feel at home.
