I share the strong symbolic value of fasting proposed by Papa Francesco, or rather than expressed today by the Pritzket winner Renzo Piano in the interesting interview published in the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera. WOW! metaphorically supports the fast too, with a secular and synesthetic invitation to turn-off smartphones and iPad, today from 19 to 23 pm; and also to “turn off” the five senses to think how each of us can contribute to inventing and building peace. Because, as Renzo Piano says “The Peace is an invention: does not exist in nature, as well the town”.
