My apartment in Via Larga overlooks Milan Cathedral’s South side.
This is a good reason to live in the place where I live, more than it could be for others.
Because I do not look at the Duomo, I keep it.
I guard it through its complexity Contemplation.
I guard it through the Imagination of the parts precluded to my gaze.
I guard it through the Intuition of its present, placing it in an aged-old history.
Somehow, I have inside me its imposing structure geometry.
Immutable, even if changing with the different light that illuminates it.
I also feel the energy of prayers, promises and vows, whispered within its walls over the Centuries.
Last night I thought that, if one day Life should prove to be only a by-product of organic complexity, a sort of vitality should be recognized in the Duomo.
I thought about it, guarding the Monument with my gaze.
