LA CRESCITA A FIANCO DEGLI SPORTIVI.

“Ho una lunga galleria di immagini impressa nella mia memoria: i miei genitori intenti a discutere di lavoro in cucina, dopocena; i pomeriggi passati con le mie sorelle, a sorteggiare di fronte al fascino dei primi programmi televisivi chi dovesse andare a controllare le macchine in produzione; la prima fiera a Milano sul furgone guidato dallo zio, entusiasti e un po’ tesi per lo stand da montare e le cose da fare; la mamma tutta d’impegno che non riesce a scrivere abbastanza in fretta gli ordini da quanti sono; io da piccolo accanto a mio padre, al mattino d’estate, verso la fabbrica per guadagnarmi i soldi del motorino, che scopro Simon & Garfunkel dall’autoradio.”
