  • "Questa è un'opera sul tempo, mamma. Per fare tutte queste cose serve il tempo. Per fare un castello serve il tempo. Per leggere un libro serve il tempo. Per fare un aeroplanino serve il tempo. Per scrivere un biglietto serve il tempo. Qua c'è un biglietto. Leggilo mamma".
    E sul biglietto c'è scritto "Il tempo scorre veloce, come il fiume verso la foce. E i pupazzi guardan veloce".
    " E poi qua mamma c'è un opera, si chiama Occhio di Foce" indicando l'hoola hop appeso alla finestra. Matilde era soddisfattissima. E io commossa dal suo essere una bambina meravigliosamente creativa.

    "This is a work of art about time. To make all these things, you need time. You need time to make a castle. You need time to read a book. You need time to make an airplane. You need time to write a note. Here's a note. Read it, mommy"
    And on the note she wrote "Time passes fast, as fast as the river flows to the mouth. And the puppets are watching quickly"
    "And here mommy, you see another work of art, it is called The Eye of the Mouth" Matilde said, pointing at the hoola hop hanging at the window. She was very proud of her. And I was deeply affected by her being such a wonderful creative babygirl.
