I remember ...

Sometimes I wonder who makes me do it. To squeeze my brain for planning the place and the gear, to wake up early, to drive for hours, to slip through homegrown jungles and quicksands. I am almost 50, and as weekend comes I'm always tired becaus of working ... Why do I keep doing the boy playing the little explorer in the woods of the country? and it's dangerous, too, for anyone (yes ANYONE as you can see in the videoclip).

And then, inevitably, as I walk through the n-th anonymous and unknown valley in the hills of Lazio, I find myself in a place like this ... and I remember why I do it.
