The new activities of a small local cultural association offer the occasion to make some remarks about the state of things in the Canavese. A tiny portion of planet Earth which braves the present facing an economical an identity crisis, struggling between the choice of an illustrious identity and the pressingly needed re-conversion, amid theme parks and clubs (somewhat invasive perhaps?) and environment (what if it was protected?) between tarmak and fields. Doubts and effort at every new step wondering which way to go.
