It is very difficult to capture the ideal within the reality, but Vimercati was one of the few who succeeded in this almost impossible thing. A soup bowl, a glass, an iron, an old alarm clock: how can they have a soul? Certainly, when we use them and make them live we pass a little of our own life onto them.
