Rue d’Aumale – 75009 Paris

Searching for something special, authentic, special, unique. Keeping our own path: everything is possible if we look in the only right place, that one of wonderment and surprise. It is just a little bit hidden away.

Non si puo’ cercare un negozio di antiquariato in via del Corso

Ogni acquisto ha il suo luogo giusto e non tutte le strade sono un percorso.

Raro é trovare una cosa speciale nelle vetrine di una strada centrale

Per ogni cosa c’é un posto, ma quello della meraviglia

é solo un po’ più nascosto

(Niccolo’ Fabi – Il negozio di antiquariato)

That little sound

Paris Saint-Lazare from Place de l’Europe – Simone Veil 75008 Paris

I needed to take back to the office a trolley which I have at home since lockdown started.

I walked, as often I do, to get to work.

Ahh…. That little ‘unusual’ sound of the small wheels rolling on the ground, the bar to adjust, the inclination of the luggage to get through obstacles….everything sounded so strange, like a piece of memories of the travelling time…

….before the world stopped.

Reclaming space

Mini-terrasse – Rue Godot de Mauroy 75009 Paris

Interesting to observe how public space is being transformed, overnight. You can keep a bistro closed for more than 2 months (due COVID-19), but you can’t prevent ‘les habitués’ to get a glass, a coffee, a cigarette and spend some time in one of the many ‘terrace’ – As lockdown measures are lifted, many bistros take a parking-car-slot (at least one) to place tables (at least one).

“We’ll always have Paris.” – Howard Koch

It is no secret that I love Paris. It is a city that continues to attract me, and make me discover secret spot or unexpected details.

Yesterday, I have walked one floor up to visit my neighbour: this is the view I have found.
