The Alphabet of the Stars. Beatrice Midollini, her piece of sky

The sky has always been a source of inspiration for poets, scientists and lovers, interpreters of a reality that belongs to the whole of humanity and to everyone's heart: the cosmos.

It doesn’t matter if I don’t see shooting stars on the night of San Lorenzo: I have touched a comet. A 10-year long journey of 6 and a half billion kilometres. You see, Rosetta went into orbit and Philae landed on surface.
I was there too. We were all there. And then, we stayed there for quite a while, taking selfies and telling it about ourselves. The stars will sacrifice themselves again this year, blazing in the sky. Then they will be no more.
My comet, however, will come back here. Again, and again and again. Could you wish for more?
