Against war

Marlene Dietrich sings "Where have all the flowers gone?"

"Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" is a folk song of the 1960s written by Pete Seeger and Joe Hickerson. It is a protest song against war. The interesting and touching text describes a sort of cycle which begins from the flowers and returns to the flowers. Marlene Dietrich's interpretation is really great.

Tav 2

On the Mount Musiné

In the cloudy sky

Near the monastery Sacra di San Michele (10th century)

I often travel the Val di Susa (Susa Valley) and I can't help noticing more and more NO TAV signs.
The readers who are not interested in the NO TAV question will perhaps look upon these photographs as curious images.

NO TAV is a movement of the population of the valley against the construction of a railway line of high-speed train (TAV) Turin - Lyon, in the construction of the so-called Corridor 5 that should connect across eastern Europe (beginning from Kiev), with the major cities of western Europe (including Turin, Marseille, Barcelona to Lisbon).
