Bolzano Amarcord (1977-1980)

Where do I come from? Secondary school. Appetite for distruction. It doesn't have change so much since, but looks better still. … Da dove vengo? Le medie. Ai tempi un prefabbricato con licenza di distruzione. Non è cambiato poi molto, anche se ora sembra un posto per bene, Bolzano Redux

Where do I come from? Primary School. The neighbourhood's library was in its basement. How much time did I spent there? How many discoveries did I made? It was like a second home for me. … Da dove vengo? La scuola elementare. Tenuto conto che nel suo seminterrato c'era la biblioteca di quartiere (ma quante ore ci ho passato? quante scoperte devo a questo posto?) era praticamente la mia seconda casa. Bolzano Redux

Where do I come from? My kindergarten. Pretty dark, eh? Yet despite the appearance I've got only good memories from this place. … Da dove vengo? Il mio asilo. Piuttosto tenebroso, eh? Ma l'aspetto inganna e nonostante fosse l'asilo delle suore ho degli ottimi ricordi di questo posto. Bolzano Redux

Where do I come from? The bench. To come to a triumphant end of this serie here is the place where our evenings get started. Well, it ain't actually the same bench (in the meantime the park has been renovate), but it is very close to where the original bench was :-) I suppose such a bench is in the memory of (almost) all of the italian kids. … Da dove vengo? La panchina. Per chiudere in bellezza il posto dove cominciavano le nostre serate. Non è proprio la stessa panchina (nel frattempo hanno ristruttur…

Where do I come from? The parish. Well, actually the stair leading to the football field and then to the mountain from the church. I did shot the church, but somehow I was not satisfied with those shots. So I prefer to post this one. Afterall I quitted with the church in those years and I walked this stair a lot more than the church's nave, with a lot more satisfaction too. … Da dove vengo? La parrocchia. Ok, in realtà è solo la scala che portava dal retro della parrocchia al campo di calcio e poi in su…

Where do I come from? Hic sunt leones. One of the boundary marker of my youth. Beyond this chapel was the German-speaking side of my neighbourhood. Another world with a tacit no entry sign, unknow and unexplored (and it would have remained so for many years after). Terra incognita. … Da dove vengo? Hic sunt leones. Uno dei segni di confine che caratterizzava la mia infanzia. Oltre questa cappella iniziava il quartiere tedesco. Un altro mondo con tacito divieto d'accesso, sconosciuto e inesplorato (e lo…

Where do I come from? The parish football playground. After the alley the football field was our natural destination. After so many years it has become almost unrecognizable. Now it looks pretty fine with its synthetic ground, some stands, even the locker rooms! When we played there (hours and hours, whole saturday afternoons, the summer evenings, with some incredible results: 38-27, 42-12, 35-35 and who score the next goal wins) it was all earth and stones and a water tap. … Da dove vengo? Il campetto…

Where do I come from? The alley. How many afternoons, how many summer did we spend here? It was our playground. And it still is, and will be, for some other coming children. I hope so at least. … Da dove vengo? Il vicolo. Quanti pomeriggi, quante estati cì abbiamo passato. Era il nostro parco giochi. La nostra palestra.
