I want to congratulate you, to invite you to use your life, your title master of Science and your dreams to do what you like to do and what is right for you and those around you. I want also to reflect about IT and life and I hope to convince you (if you are not already convinced) that we human beings become more and more important as the role of IT expands.
IT is somehow magic, even for those like us who understands and creates the internal of IT.
When I was a little girl I started to read quite early and I have always liked to read. One of my first book is Pinocchio. Pinocchio has been written in 1883 by Carlo Collodi who used to live in the same town as my mother and grandmother, a town called Pescia somewhere in the middle of Tuscany between Pisa and Firenze. So the sentences from the book were not only words in the book but words and sentences that were repeated several times during the day to entertain us or to give us advice or to criticize us.
“Now your nose is long” could my grandmother say if I was lying about something. Pinocchio was very lucky as he had been given the possibility to live almost as an human being. The blue fairy, “la fata” had informed Pinocchio that he can become a real boy if he proves himself to be “brave, truthful, and unselfish”
Pinocchio had been given the possibility to go to school. However, Pinocchio did a lot of mistakes, like selling his book to buy the entrance to an entertainment park. As a consequences of his mistakes Pinocchio must experience a lot of challenges
The puppet is brought to life by the blue fairy, who confirms that he that he can become a real boy if he proves himself to be “brave, truthful, and unselfish”
His mistakes made Pinocchio in a real human beings.
Alda Merini (1931 – 2009), poetessa e scrittrice italiana.
Ma anche io come Pinocchio vendo il mio abbecedario per un bacio d’amore.
But I also like Pinocchio sell my “book” for a kiss of love .
