Vacanze in Italia!
E' stata la nostra prima vacanza in 4, il primo viaggio in aereo
& D con
il loro nuovo passaporto tedesco. Il viaggio di andata e' stato
davvero una gran fatica, arrivati io e Regine stremati alla
meta, Napoli. I gemelli hanno visto per la prima volta l'Italia,
l'altra parte delle loro radici... Siamo stati al mare (Terracina)
con i nonni ed abbiamo incontrato parenti ed amici. Ed a Napoli
abbiamo festeggiato il loro quinto mese di vita (month
La ricorderemo questa vacanza e sara' nelle loro memorie di
sicuro, ed un giorno leggeranno da queste righe questi piccoli
dettagli che ho scritto per loro. Anzi un giorno, spero, continueranno
al mio posto a raccontare la nostra storia da questo sito.
01.09.2016 One month
of paternity leave has gone. It's been a wonderful August spent
with Regine and the Kids, with friends and with the loved ones who
came to visit us. Every morning a walk through the beautiful and
sunny Berlin, sometimes a picnic, sometimes at the beer garden,
sometimes back home for lunch. And the
walks in the Berlin's "friedhof(s)"
are quiet and nice moments away from the noise and the hot temperatures
of the rest of the city. It is still very sunny and warm and we
will keep going out and enjoying the good and free time...
I am exercising with Darebee.com.
Good site, good initiative, very well done. And good and easy workouts!
In the past ten days I did (3 set light level): Danger Zone,
Night Shift, Cardio Drill, Code Zero, Good Morning Abs, Ab Hub,
Another beautiful day, full of life and sun. A picnic @
Mauerpark with Regine, the kids and friends with their twins
kids, in a very sunny day with hot temperatures.
according to Booking.com I am a Rome
Finally, I have
visited Karl Weierstrass
grave in Berlin. A dive into the memories of the first intensive
University period and an homage to the elegance and charm
of Mathematical Analysis.
And yesterday was
a beautiful day at Berlin's beach bar at Nordbahnof and with the first
Picnic for the twins. And today
is splendid too, swimming pool, balcony, talking with D&W...
4 Months W.D.A. W&D
Everyday is a beautiful day. I am enjoying this this parental leave

Dario e' a Berlino
per 4 giorni. Anche lui catapultato gioco forza nei ritmi
Io comincio a godermi il periodo di paternita', a Berlino
tra le belle giornate che si alternano con quelle un po
piu' fredde, e le passeggiate con i bimbi e con Regine,
passeggiate che ormai fan parte dei loro ritmi. Mangiano
ogni 4 ore adesso: 6, 10, 14, 18, 22... e poi, quasi per
magia, la notte dopo il pasto delle 22 si addormentano e
si risvegliano al mattino tra le 5.30 e le 6. Hanno scoperto
il giorno e la notte.
Il viaggio continua...
am on parental leave!
3 full months to spend with and for my kids.
We have started this week, the entire days the four of us, the time
spent with W&D and Regine is very intense - we will remember this
days forever, I am sure.
W&D are changing everyday. Now experimenting sounds with their
voices. D. likes sitting with us at the kitchen table while we eat,
watching us with a look of desire for real food... that little Italian!
And W. that little girl she wakes up with a smile every morning...
They like to be entertained
now: they have started playing with toys and staring at colored pictures.
Both same weight, but so different from each other with their bodies
Oggi sono 3 mesi di W
& D. Con
lo sguardo e con il sorriso... W
ti fa innamorare, D
ti fa sciogliere. Sono fantastici.
Weeks & 2 Days W.D.A. (08.07.2016)
Weeks & 2 Days W.D.A. translated into the old calendar
means 08 July 2016. Anna and Ugo have left this side
of the Universe some days ago and the first week of
July the beautiful challenge is all on mine' and Regine'
shoulders. My parents have been great, they have helped
us and the kids a lot and we are so thankful to them
for all they do for us.
are two characters!
twins can be really demanding but Regine is able to
amaze me continously with her way to handle now all
this with such calm, joy, smile, love, strenght.
This days my minds goes often back to the
days when we met, in Milan...
... a miracle happened to me, an immense fortune I met.
How beautiful you are, Regine. How beautiful, amazing,
breathtaking you have always been, Regine. Magic. Regine.
have recently celebrated Month 2 of the W&D Age.
They are changing every day, this is amazing. And growing.
We have walks with them in the baby-carrier or in the
babywagon, weather is beautiful and we enjoy this beautiful
At night I lie in bed sometimes with W
on the left, sometimes with D
on the right,
this is and enchanted moment: I wonder how will I feel
when they will be grown and this will change.
I am working, and we are receiving visits and help from
our parents, the grandparents now, during the day. Soon
I will be on parental leave, I am really looking forward
to it; I am sure we will enjoy these weeks so much.
Time has changed, priorities have changed, no order,
things left everywhere around - I am wandering in a
kids' driven dimension, possessed by W
I have the feeling that they know what I have to do,
where I must go, where it all must go. And they are
leading me there.
parte dell’Universo, al di la' dello Stragate, nel
Mondo di Adesso, il tempo conosce un sistema di riferimento
diverso. I momenti scorrono anche qui fluidi ma con accelerazioni,
decelerazioni, frenate brusche, espansioni e buchi neri
che mettono spesso il capogiro e lasciano disorientato
uno come me nato e cresciuto nel Mondo di Prima dall’altra
parte della Porta delle Stelle.
Nel Mondo di Adesso il giorno zero corrisponde al 20 Aprile
2016 del Mondo di Prima. E da questa parte mentre scrivo
siamo all’inizio della 7a settimana W.D.A. (W&D
I giorni e le notti qui non si alternano piu’ come
prima, si susseguono nello stesso continuo ma sono un
continuo del medesimo ritmo o quasi. E sara’ cosi
per un po’, almeno cosi’ mi dicono quelli

bellissimi e simpatici, ed e’ dolce vederli nelle
loro diversita’ e vicini nella loro essenza –
lati diversi di qualcosa che e’ uno ed e’
nato da quel miracolo che e’ l’amore per Regine
e con Regine.
Il tempo non lo trovo per fermarmi per riflettere e godere
come vorrei su quanto di grandioso e stupendo stia accadendo
e per guardare al Mondo di Prima ed alla sua bellezza
Una specie di jetleg lo sento ancora – immagino
ci vorra’ ancora un po di tempo. Poi mi sentiro’
non soltanto felice come sono adesso ma anche a mio agio
nel Mondo di Adesso – ed il Mondo di Prima ed il
Mondo di Adesso si avvicineranno sempre di piu’
per convergere in un unica meraviglia.
E lo Stargate scomparira’.

E da quel momento il tempo e gli eventi hanno assunto una
continuita' ed una rapidita' che non li ho distinti piu'
gli uni dagli altri. Catapultato dall'altra parte dell'Universo
attraverso il continuo iperspazio con Regine (la Mamma)
e raggiunti in corsa da W
alle 11.30 di quel mattino. E via di corsa attraverso l'iperspazio
a prendere forza da loro ed a dar loro forza.
Ma il tempo, il cuore, il sangue, la corsa si sono fermati
quando ho visto per la prima volta i loro corpi uscire dal
corpo di Regine: forse il tutto era talmente incredibile
che cervello e cuore non sono riusciti a convertirla in
un'emozione decifrabile, e si sono fermati, bloccati, abbandonati
corsa attraverso lo Stargate mi ha portato da un'altra parte
dell'Universo. Ora ho pensieri ed emozioni sparse, che dimentico,
che provo ad ordinare...

10 days of April
We've reached April 10, "der
Termin" is in 1 month (31 days) , we've entered
the countdown zone. So
actually there are not many stories
that I can tell here, as we are living in a kind of limbo
and putting all our energies on !!...
is arrived, yes, and it's indeed
a great feeling. Days are
longer, warmer, brighter. Zionskirplatz and all around here
is beautiful. As soon as my working days are over I try
to enjoy when possible and unlocked my bicycle after about
Unfortunately, we couldn't
join Almi and Sebastian's wedding on April 1 in Hamburg.
Regine did not have enough energy on that day, so we decided
to stay in Berlin for the good of !!.
It was a tough decision but
I know they understood and we missed them all.
Regine is the most beautiful
and sweetest thing I have ever seen. I was
blessed when I met her. And since then she's been smiling
at me everytime I meet her eyes.
She was shaped to be perfect
for me and to make me feel good.
We've spent the Easter's break
at home: I was feeling a bit sick and weak. But we've enjoyed
this as well, because we feel good together and we like our
place a lot. And by the way, we have a new kitchen table:
Junggesellenabschied in Hamburg!
It's been a great time with Sebastian, Peter & friends.
Eating tapas @ Cafe
Ribatejo. Driving crazy cars @ Racing
Center Hamburg. Drinking etc. @ Hamburger
work! Babybed !!
I am currently working on a new 2016
recordings project. Let me give you
an exclusive preview.
Many important people
in my Universe were born in March. Lou Reed, Lucio Dalla, Elton John,
Dario, Almi, Marie Luise.
Recently published in the Headless
Recording page, recorded in 2015.
Me and Anna (my Mum)
Last week was busy enough and we decided to take it easy this
weekend, no appointments, no items to check. So Friday evening
was a night out on our own, with me having a nice evning with
Walter and Nico drinking wine in Zionskirchplatz. Saturday
we had a walk at Volkspark Humboldthain.
And today, Sunday, I was brave enough to install the IKEA's
chest (I had promised myself not to buy Ikea stuff anymore,
but this was the easiest and fastest solution we could find):
they'll call me Johnny
and Ugo in Berlin, delivering 'corredini' for !!,
cooking 'pasta e zucchine', offering consulting @ BabyWalz
and IKEA, etc.
I am playing
more keyboards recently. Buying some Elton John records
for my compare Matthias has re-lighted the passion in me for those
great songs, and Eltonchords.com
is a great source of joy.
from the first half of February...
has been our guest in Berlin for a few days at the beginning
of February, helping me and Regine - with Regine's days
getting shorter as she gets tired so fast and so suddenly
grow and grow.
And move and move: and they seem to wait for the evening
to begin dancing, like a party starting every night.
And I join the party ->
existence of the Gravitational
Waves has been proven.
Einstein's General Relativity has had another proof
(not that this was needed, and this is not the real news
from the discovery of these days). Einstein provided a glimpse
into such an mistery like our Universe; a view on the unknown,
partial but already breathtaking and enough to make us dream,
to make us wonder, to make us hope, to make us go crazy.
We enjoyed the last weekend
of January, Regine and myself with Liane and Walter @ la
Kapelle, finally meeting Ak and Jt after a long time. And Peter
was in Berlin for few hours, and we couldn't miss pizza @ Giradischi.
PS. We like the way our apartment has recently changed.
A video conference with Ciro, Carlo and Dario. They are planning
a trip to Berlin in May. The message that Ciro wrote to book
an apartment in Berlin was very sweet and something to remember...
A day to remember:
Vaterschafts und Mutterschaft Anerkennung
@ the Berlin Mitte Jugendamt
A night with... Masataka and his Jazz band The Working
Birds @ Schlot
us busy, already.
weekend 23-24 was a very active one, as we swapped
our bedroom and livingroom on Saturday ... and did
fotoshooting on Sunday
Mr. Blue is one of my favorite songs ever.
We sing it for
before sleeping. Regine says
she has read somewhere that they will remember the sensations
of these days when they will hear the music we make them
listen to now.
I recorded it here
for the posterity.
the new Year we start to be aware of the things to to do waiting
and some planning is needed.
So we have prepared a list we call The Checklist,
and we focus on what needs to be done.
And when a task is completed... it's
great start of the year in Leipzig,
where we spent 3 lovely first days of January with Matthias
and our friends.
spent with these German friends of mine is often very special,
leaving a sweet memory in my heart and in my thoughts.
... moments, hours like these ones, among people and cultures
and languages which only few years ago were so far away.
I enjoy living these situations and having at the same time
that instant of lucidity to realize the beauty of what is
going on; and I feel lucky. I think that we all go through
moments like these, but we rarely understand their beauty.
It's just a matter of realizing it.
was the first time for me in this city, and I will go back
there as soon as possible - to meet my compare and his family
