These days in Marano……years ago I barely knew them and then I have known them more and more, more; I saw the passion, then I saw that it involved Tom, Dick, then schools, the twinning-projects ... I said we are on the right track, because these things, done in this way, are huge, you know! Maybe you could say, they are small things: it is not the Venice film festival, it is not Cannes, no! News, catwalks that never end! Here the most beautiful walkway is you guys, with your commitment, with your way of being.

This has become an event of great value, because it has a content inside: to build legality, rights, justice, peace, not with words but with deeds. Here, you do it through images, creating your spot, working with your teachers, looking around with the desire to know.

It's the best festival that we can realize, because here is the belly, the head and the heart of all of you.
