No UNESCO heritage for espresso: the application was rejected. Passed. Not allowed. What is the most correct wording?
It is certainly more kind to say that the candidacy The Italian Espresso Coffee between culture, ritual, sociality and literature in the emblematic communities from Venice to Naples was not admitted by the committee by the Council Director of the Italian National Commission for Unesco, who preferred the Opera.
Of course we all agree that the art of opera is worth it.
But the coffee just “wasn’t there?” Pity.
However, it remains a heritage for us.
At this point our thoughts turn to the sensational rejections.
The first that comes to mind is the famous Meryl Streep audition for King Kong.
Here she tells us directly, but above all divinely I would say
Or we can quote Fazi Editore and the interview with Elido Fazi: Gore Vidal pointed out Dan Brown to me. His book got there six months before it was released in America. We read it absent-mindedly and didn’t do anything about it.
In other words, we can say that “reading absent-mindedly” harms.
Whenever I think of underestimates I am reminded of Shirey MacLaine and the recurring sentence in The Last Word movie “The Kinks are the most underrated band ever.”
In fact, many were surprised by the choice of David Gilmour who in a 2003 BBC interview indicated Waterloo Sunset as the first of the songs he would choose a desert island.
Do you want to tell me some anecdotes too?
Or maybe you also have a personal experience, of rejection or even better of revenge?
Indeed, more than revenge, I’d like to talk about rebirth
Being born is not enough. It is to be reborn that we are born. Everyday. Pablo Neruda
What do you say?
