We are used to measure ourselves against ourselves and the space around us with the knowledge that something outside our skin that can not be controlled happens, something which is beyond our forecasts. Try to be prepared, presentable, able to react quickly, with strength and intelligence to stimuli from the world outside of us. Indeed, the delicate boundary between us and the world is the key topic of our whole existence. Reducing everything to a question of numbers, the five senses are compared with the four elements and with the passage of time: all the time we interpret the world around us, nature and the community with these few parameters, and each time we are gripped by the mysterious question. I feel, see, smell, touch, taste, and so I think, but what am I really? I build an idea of the world, but who will tell myself? Following the return to my hometown, L’Aquila, after an absence of eight years, I tried to re-establish a contact with those who are my roots, trying to tell through these and to interpret the sensations arising from my daily experiences.
