Directions’ notes

We have never stopped, perhaps we glanced back but only to find the spontaneity to push and move forward. We have reinvented endlessly, we discovered that it was useless to wait for something to happen, we are even more focused on how to give what we have always held close. To give is our dedication to others and to ourselves, it is an idea that has slowly built up around this celebration. To give is a simple act: sometimes in real life and not just in the movies, if we choose not to focus on those things which do not go well, we open the door for something good. To give strength and energy to a project allows creation but at the same time builds something important in us.

Creativity cannot be born from fear of failure, but by the feeling that, somehow, success, or at least part of it, means continuing to give.
