No stars are seen tonight in the sky over Prater, in Vienna. It's August. "That" night was a night at the end of May. I was not there. My father told me about it. Ever since I was a child. And that time we saw them together in Madrid. Stars seen and [...]

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 [...]
The Nexus-6 replicant, Roy Batty, is officially "retired" in the futuristic 2019 of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. Actor Rutger Hauer died in the same year as his most iconic film character. With his interpretation, capable of transposing all the [...]
Il focus di questo numero è dedicato al doppio anniversario dell’Archivio e della Fondazione Ansaldo, con uno sguardo rivolto anche su Genova.
