About L’Esistenza, Lotta Continua:
In a given moment of your life, by and large in your younger years, you take that kind of ethical choice which will determine the rest of your entirely life. If your decision is pure at hearth, you get into a non-reversal commitment never possible afterwards to surrender. You can not change the past and thus you have to change the future. You can not forget, but you can try to understand. Summing up, Lotta Continua is a one-way voyage in a war-train with nameless destiny, of battles with no mercy, and with no return.
