I had to shed my skin
by Matteo Di Giovanni
What’s your homeland when you have no roots?
You were just born in a place you call home, but you have nothing to do with it.
It just doesn’t feel yours.
You can only be looking for traces.
You take bits and pieces from the places you’ve lived in – as well as from your memories – and try to make them work together.
