"I want a decovidized life" by Priscilla Borri

In one of his major hits, Vasco Rossi sings “I want an exaggerated life” and for an entire generation these words summarized their hopes and dreams. In a twist of fate, nowadays the exaggerated life we strive for is one that is decovidized, in which we are finally free from the fear of contagion, a life where we can once again hug, be together and socialize as we used to. Music can thus represent the true social medicine that will enable us to regain the collective freedom we no longer take for granted. So, let's sing at the top of our lungs: I want an exaggerated life!

"Fifth commandment" by Massimo and Alessandro Breschi

Three great dragons symbolize human power bearing wars and destruction as they battle in the ring of history. But no one will be the victorious.

On the day of his inauguration, President Biden said "I'm here to make things right". This is not the time to talk about what we "can" but about what we "must" do. The bison President Biden is riding represents his electoral promises. The Covid pandemic emergency, the withdrawal from Afghanistan and immigration issues have all contributed in decreasing the President’s approval ratings and many Trumps are ready to take America back again by trying to unseat Buffalo Biden. The new commander in chief, however, will not give up the leadership of the "Land of the free".
