Appel des étudiants, chercheurs, professeurs et citoyens Italiens pour sauvegarder leurs droits fondamentaux.


Aux représentants des Institutions Politiques Européennes et Internationales.

Messieurs,

Comme vous avez pu entendre ces derniers jours, le cadre futur des Institutions Universitaires et Scolaires Italiennes vient d’être décide. Ces institutions sont à la base des structures sociales, civiles et culturelles de chaque pays démocratique. Elles sont les outils cléfs nécéssaires au progrès économique et à la mobilité sociale.

Sign for Roberto Saviano


Roberto Saviano is under death threats for denouncing the criminal deeds of the Camorra in his book Gomorra, translated and read all over the world. His freedom is under threat as well as his autonomy as a writer, his chances to meet his family, to enjoy a social life, to have part in the public life, to travel in his own country.
A young writer, guilty to have investigated the organized crime revealing its methods and its structure is forced to live an hidden, underground life, while the Camorra bosses send him death threats from their jails ordering him to stop writing for La Repubblica, his newspaper, and to keep silent. The State must do every effort to protect Saviano and to defeat the Camorra. But this is not a mere police case. It’s a problem of democracy. Saviano’s safe freedom concerns everyone of us as citizens.
Signing this appeal we intend to take charge of it, as a personal commitment, urging the State at the same time to take on its responsibility, because it’s intolerable that something like this could happen in Europe in 2008.

On Francis Bacon. Luca Paci


Old Cotton street four tables

Lucian & Francis paying

their restaurant  bills

with paintings but she

did not like it she

thought it was evil.

Digging a hole somewhere

and knowing where to begin

Hollow curtained space

hang in even folds

stench of death reek of

blood &disfazione

The Pope oh the pope

tubular constructs far

-fetched horizons.

Do you read me?

Do you <…>

we do not possess the key
