"I was born like everyone else, with a spanking and the consequent crying at the top of my lungs. And like all of them, I began to exist through a sheet paper when someone, in his own handwriting, wrote my name on the birth certificate.
Since then, the paper sheet is not only the witness of this story that began to be written so many years ago, but an active protagonist in my life. Between folds, cuts, rips, lines, colors, drawings and letters, the paper became integrated into my personality becoming an endless source of games during my childhood, recipient of the creative concerns of my adolescence, and now, during my mature years, in The most intimate confidant of my complex reflections."
