While living in Messina, I have lived and learned about this beautiful part of the world. There is beauty here and there is also struggle. I have been invited to see the beauty, living in various houses, attending poetry readings and finally living in my own apartment with a view of the sea. Yet, I have sensed the struggle, my own and the regions with looks and questions and a sense I don’t belong. My question of whether I can stay for the year was recently answered quite definitively by the Questura, and then by a CAF office – If I don’t have a reason (Job, School, Family), I can’t stay beyond 3 months, even with an EU passport. I don’t have those here yet so I will continue my travels elsewhere and hopefully return for my remaining 3 months of my journey in March – June. Meanwhile, I took a trip to see more of this beautiful country. There were places I knew I needed to see, that I’ve never visited before. This installment is about Arezzo and Andreina’s Mosaic in Indicatore, Italy. What a beautiful day I spent in this part of the world. This is the first of 5 stories from this journey.
