The pleasure of small things. My idea of a good life, in Monza
After a long period of too much work, too many commitments, too little time, it is a great pleasure to come back to a normal life. Taking the time to think, to slow down, to linger, to indulge, to savour: this is what a good life means, if you ask me...
