Milan, Aosta, Turin, Palermo: 4 cities, 4 chapters of a journey that a crew makes, in the company of a war correspondent, in search of open fronts, for once in his homeland. School is an institution that struggles to formulate an idea of the future. A failed industrial project produced social fragility that only specialized charitable organizations now can stem. Places once considered happy islands of well-being discover that reality has changed dramatically. Encounters with men and women who have slipped into territories devoid of certainty, and that therefore impose reflections on the ways and limits of narration.
