the title is china only because i’m still here in bejing
but the topic i want to discuss is suggested by a title from today’s corriere on line, that obviously i check every day.
first thing: corriere is a newspaper i like a lot and i always bought and read. great journalists that i admire a lot write articles on it, one above all is gian antonio stella.
but, let me say, why insist in calling fabrizio corona that was arrested today a “photographer”? i can understand during the first few days the mess he found himself because all happened very fast …. but now there was enough time!
fine, it is not that important, and it could like as if i notice it because i work in the field, but if they for once speak about something i know exactly and i see such a huge mistake, how can i trust them to give the correct information when the talk about kabul or bagdad?
fabrizio corona is not a photographer, he owns an agency that produces and distributes photographic…, he never took a picture in his life.
besides that i have written about “things i know exactly and directly” because i know fabrizio corona well, i’ve worked with him a lot, obviously not as “paparazzo”, but for portraits of famous people and advertising campaigns. i don’t know what he could have done, but, i’d like to point out that i personally have always worked well with him and i never sensed any swindle, more or less clean or legal, that now looks as if they were an important part of his activity.
but let’s live corona alone, hoping he can soon come out of his mess, let’s go back to the page of corriere here above, i would like to focus on the sentence attributed to prodi, where they write “famigliari”
famigliari??? with a g???
shouldn’t it be familiari?
mistakes, inaccuracy, inaccuracy …
so? what should we believe? who? are facts real or only opinions?

fuck! you really did fax to me!
thanks a million to those who wrote, i never put names on my blog, but i really want to thank you.
i’m still in beijing, and to tell you the truth i really am up to here.
it really seems to me that these chinese are big assholes, i agree it is superficial and approximate to assess in such a rough way 1.400 billion people, with a culture thousand of years old, and so on ….. but this is the way i see it. i do not have any admiration for their incredible economic growth, and i do not understand it: nobody speaks english, they are totally unorganized, messy and muddled, i really cannot see how this can be compatible with a nation that wants to reach “first” world status.
i haven’t seen a bookshop, a cinema, a theater, only shops and shops and shops.
i’m afraid of the real truth: all this is based, like in ancient egyptian and roman times, on one reality only, not technology, not innovation, here all is based on slavery.
millions of people that like in the beautiful movie “metropolis” by
fritz lang, all lined up working, working and working.
one image above all to picture how it works: there are men working on the borders of highways filled with cars, normally women dressed with a orange overall, sweeping the side of the road for kilometers no end.
advertising everywhere, all lifts have a small plasma screen with constant continuous advertising.
skyscrapers covered by giant light walls also screening only constant advertising..
something in between metropolis, as i said, and blade runner: if the future must look like this, we are not in very good shape….

i think once must have been a shark, time made it look like a kind of giant rat with fins.
