Name & Nationality

Luciano is three months old and it’s the perfect time to get him a passport and renew mine. Ketty took the photos as always and it made me think about countries
and limitations and I had the need to write down some thoughts to help my son understand his roots in the future.

Luciano: you have a name and a nationality, and both define and limit you.

– Your mother came to the United States in a raft.
– Your father arrived to the United States by crossing the Mexican border.
– You arrived to the United States via natural birth at the Mercy Hospital in Miami.

I’m an inhabitant of this planet and love traveling, drawing in planes, and having breakfast in different countries.
I experience a deep joy by knowing that you will soon have an American Passport.
That little navy book will open the legs of the world for you.
I can’t wait to live it together.
