Succede che, il 9 novembre, a #Parma c’è un imprenditore mantovano per lavoro.
E mentre è in città, perde il suo Rolex d’oro.

Succede che quello stesso giorno, in città, c’è Modou Gaye, un ragazzo di 22 anni che arriva dal #Senegal
Vive nella bassa parmense, è arrivato qui sfuggendo a chissà quali inferni e ora si trova in un limbo.

Modou si trova a passare per Via Farini quando vede una busta di velluto blu.
La apre e dentro trova un orologio.
Capisce che è di valore e corre da un orefice per farlo valutare.
25mila euro.
Quell’orologio vale 25mila euro.

Una fortuna, un patrimonio, una ricchezza per tanti di noi, figuratevi per Modou.

Succede però che Modou non ci pensa un attimo.
E corre dai Carabinieri.

I keep being asked what #Dickens would have made of #Brexit. Charles & Catherine Dickens took their family to live in #Genoa, #Italy for a year (in 1844-1845) – something Brits will no longer be able to do after 29 March. #travel
Before moving to #Italy, Charles #Dickens employed Antonio Gallenga, a political #refugee from #Parma who had migrated to #London, to teach him Italian. In #Brexit Britain, Gallenga would no longer be allowed to work legally.
#Dickens wrote a #travelogue about his year in #Italy. ‘Pictures from Italy’ details the family’s travels through #Europe to their new home in #Genoa, & Dickens' #travels around the country. In #Brexit Britain Dickens would no longer have the right to work in another EU country.
