Re: Santa Maria Assunta

Antonia liked the most the lower central façade, where Saint Peter was in a lush garden, holding the keys while indicating the gates to Paradise. Near the gates the Good Thief awaited, with the cross, symbol of his redemption. At his side, the Holy Virgin was interceding for the salvation of sinners...

Re: A new customer

To Antonia's dismay, the other woman insisted in calling her Madame . But maybe, when they would meet again, this barrier would be effaced. Marceline remained mysterious – and that meant for Antonia only an opportunity to exercise her imagination in unveiling these mysteries in the writer's ways. Th...

Re: Common Interests

After Molly gave Milan the direction to go and he left, the discussion continued over a cup of tea. The two writers arrived to discover common interests and to confess to each other that they were writing more than journal articles. The day got shortened by their interesting discussions. Later in th...

Re: A new customer

Antonia's heart melted. "I guess you aren't alone anymore. Do you have time for a cup of tea with us?" This was her friendship-starting trick. As Marceline said that she found solace in her work, Antonia nodded, with a sad smile. "Me too. And the stories I hear sometimes as a journalist convince me ...

Re: A new customer

In most places, it was the man who traditionally inherited and passed his name on to the new generations, but it was the woman, wife, mother or sister, who treasured the whole legacy passed on.

Re: Santa Maria Assunta

Antonia had come before to Santa Maria Assunta, to listen to the concert of the Assumption Eve and spend the vigil night there. Some years, she was with her late husband - be they married or even the year they were just engaged, as her father had trusted Simon, with good reason. Last year, she had b...

Re: A new customer

It seemed Marceline understood more than Antonia had ever said. She was good at filling in the blanks between the host's words. "Of course it is better to belong to the family. Otherwise, why have we passed through this world, if not leaving our mark and our inheritance?" This was a painful aspect. ...

Re: A new customer

Antonia's mouth opened in admiration. Somehow, she would have dreamt of having a large staff and being able to organize lavish parties with lots of guests, like the ones she was sometimes invited to, knowing that they would get covered in the gazetta. She did it only in her stories. The Stamperia ha...

Re: Daggers of Ink, whispers of gold ( Antonia Saxida Vidal)

"Gazzetta di San Stefano" was delivered, the day of its appearance, to the main cafés in town. These had a yearly subscription, and often they advertised their establishment inside too. For those near their printing shop, she left Nino to do the distribution. For those farther away, and for the mor...

Re: A new customer

She took the money, listening to the other's words. Palazzo Paruta? That was nearby, and recently renovated. "So we are neighbours. At least, at ten minutes distance or less, one should be called so. I saw it being renovated a few months ago. Congratulations! That's impressive! What made you choose ...
