«One morning, as the desire to take a walk came over me,
I put my hat on my head, left my writing room, or room of phantoms,
and ran down the stairs to hurry out into the street.»

The fantastic island of Cuba and its inhabitants, islanders proud of their independence and culture, tempted by the dream of mass consumerism but still aware of the importance of the Barbudos revolution: this was the Cuba I found in April 2003. An elderly but still present Fidel Castro and a new generation ready to open up to a world struggling with an evolving digital revolution. Cuba the insolent does not seem to care too much, engaged in the labors and joys of every day, in a daily life much more real than that proposed as a novelty from the nascent social media. Cuba in 2003, the last years of real socialism, or better, the last years of analog socialism.
