Ilvo Diamanti

The future? It is past

 

Nowadays we are all young until age 60 and over, so who are young people? Did they disappear together with their future? Did they escape, and where? Or perhaps they no longer exist? The best or luckiest of them tend to leave the country, and those who are left behind can no longer see the future as it is hostage to an eternal past-present, or it is compensated for by adults and by the Italian family. The future has dissolved to the point that there is no more social conflict, no striving for something new, but only promises, and the dream that everything can happen now, instantly, as if time no longer existed. If we are all young then no-one is really young. There is no future but an eternal past. The future is yesterday. A portrait of a country and a people crushed by a time which has come (or that we have brought) to a standstill.
