What an effort… bring it here… move it there… hang it up… take it down because I don’t like it that way. The Valentines are a bit too meticulous, they want things done well, and they have very clear ideas about what they want… well, it’s okay, work is work, it’s not just fun but also effort and commitment… that’s the Independent Brigade for you. As the Valentines always say, “We’re not a recreational club, we work here. No one is obligated to be part of the Brigade, but if you want the wonderful things you like, you have to do your part. We’re by your side.” Today, we’re building together this wonderful evening to give to everyone, and we’re proud of it. It’s us from the Brigade inviting everyone, flipping the usual dynamics of inclusion that would have us at home waiting to be invited.
During dinner, the interventions of the Mayor of Perugia, Andrea Romizi, who came to greet us, and the councilor Edi Cicchi, who enjoyed the evening with us, honored us. The esteem of the institutions fills us with hope and pride.
