It's over. A pretty damn undertone year, even for my standards.
As always, digging in the dirt, something good stands out.
In chronological order, as a partial memo, few incomplete lines.

-Bonneville, finally
The wind in your hair, the feeling of freedom. Also: a fear that twists your belly and a truly unique driving style.

-Pancherot mountain
They say: Pancherot mountain is one of the best of hole Valtourmenche, the view is breathtaking, from Cervino to Rosa Mountain.
Bottom line: none of us had any energy to look around.
In the picture: a scene from Lord of the Rings, probably.

-Cyberpunk Vernissage
There are people who could infect you with their positive mood. Gianni is one of them.
And it becomes really clear during the opening of his art exhibition when a lot of people was coming and moving around. He was the chief one, but he welcomed me as I was his only visitor, hugged me and told me: Cipputi !!! I am happy you came.

In the picture: after one beerI was fearless and I challenged Devil in arm wrestling.

-Bob & Bobette premiere
At the cinema, in the dark, watching the movie, every mistake I did looks even worst. Oh jeeeez, have I really animated that shot? Gosh.
Luckily, after the movie we ate and drank and everyone pretends not to have seen anything.
PS: Bob & Bobette wasn't that bad, indeed. Honestly, I really enjoyed that production.
In the picture: a moment of pure terror.

- Thai dinner
Definitely the best moment since a while. Even without any photographic evidence I have to mention that dinner.
I ate fish, overthrown wine and talked about stuff. During the night: turbo-indigestion. TURBO !
In fact: everything has a price.

It was a beautiful autumn day, and it was beautiful to go to gather (?) chestnuts, as I used long time ago. Even if my backbone was creaking.
In the picture: Valentina, showing her harvest (?), reminds me once again – if any proof is needed – which one is actually the stronger sex.

-Uncle Cipputi
What does it mens to be uncle?
Basically it means you have a grandson.

I know: rankings and reviews at the end of the year are indecently trash and boring. Also to have a blog, I guess.
Simply I couldn't resist.


PS: Thank all you people. Really.
