‘’ Homerics are the Epics of our life, I don’t object,

but tell me… if finally Ithaka is part of the myth,

or if truth deals with its myth,

for the Trojan Wars between

Youth and experience!

Dedicated to men and women…

who ”emigrate” from Youth to Experience

distributing a piece of hope to all

those that are seeking ”their own” Ithaka…
