Some time ago I visited a singular place, the royal palace of Caserta.

In the garden, built towards the end of the 1700s in order to look like a “messy nature”, as was the fashion at the time, there is a hidden passage, a cryptoporticus, specially made to look like an ancient ruin. It is fascinating.

I like the idea of ​​how much the signs of the passage of time affect everyone, yesterday as today. Powerful kings wanted to remember that time passes. Harsh. But also magnanimous.

The passage is what’s interesting. We go through the world. We pass. Through the layers of humanity that have preceded us. And that will follow us. And time watches us, passing by…
