Some years ago, a friend mentioned it.
First time I’d heard of it.
He was from there and was going back.
‘If you ever find yourself there’ he told me.
‘How on Earth would I find myself there?’ I thought.
I smiled, and I forgot about it.
Years later, I was living in Rome.
‘I found a new job’ my boyfriend told me.
‘In Torino’ he added.
‘I have a friend there’ I said.
Turns out, I found myself there.
