E anche quest’anno il Natale si avvicina a grandi passi… E come ogni anno non mi aspettavo che fosse già qui…
Questa volta per augurarvi buone feste, ho pensato di di focalizzarmi su una ripresa: quella di Parigi dopo gli attacchi terroristici del 13 novembre. In particolare mi sono concentrata su un simbolo: i mercatini di Natale sugli Champs Elysees, chiusi e poi riaperti dopo gli attentati. E l’ho fatto attraverso gli occhi di due due fotografi: Thomas Dworzak (Magnum Photos) e Dominique Charriau (Getty Images). Il clima gelido, cupo e mesto dei giorni immediatamente successivi alla tragedia, si scioglie lentamente: le serrande si rialzano, i venditori sistemano la merce, i passanti chiacchierano e i bambini sorridono. E ci sono tanti arabi e nessuno ha paura di loro, perchè la vita è più forte. Per fortuna.

Still this year Christmas is fast approaching… And like every year I didn’t expect it is already here …
This time to wish you an happy holiday season, I decided to focus me on a recovery: that one of Paris after the terrorist attacks on 13 November. In particular I concentrate on a symbol: the Christmas market on the Champs Elysees, closed and then reopened after the attacks. And I did it through the eyes of two two photographers: Thomas Dworzak (Magnum Photos) and Dominique Charriau (Getty Images). The freezing, gloomy and sad mood of the days immediately following the tragedy, slowly melts: shutters get up, sellers settle the goods, passersby chat and children smile. And there are so many Arabs and no one is afraid of them, because life is stronger. Luckily.
