Barbara’s family and me after the visit of the Vatican. Those American ladies were charming, polite, interested, just the kind of clients that every guide would love to have. I was very surprised to learn that they come for…Itacha, Ulysses’ island! But it was Itacha in the State of New York. So I went to see how this city looks like and I found that, in the Cornell University, they have a beautiful neo-gothic  chapel.  Among so many prestigious images – the Vatican, Ulysses, the neo-gothic architecture – the one that I prefer is the charming smile of those young girls, looking confidently to the future. Lovely souvenir.
