Communicating while looking at someone in the eyes from the opposite part of the world has placed us in an era of immediacy, the same immediacy that we apply to every part of our life and that makes us forget that there is time for much: to think, to learn and to listen. There is no rithm without time; thus, with no rythm we tend to talk over others and, surrounded by much noise, we do not listen to each other. How we will live together? Rediscovering the value of time
The cover of this article want to be an allegory; the real goals are neither Covid or negationism. These pictures try to encourage us to be aware of the importance of time and to re-consider it, the same time necessary to train those who offer their own knowledge to face this emergency.
