Past, present and future "Amando Cattolica 2006"
By Roberto Piccinelli
Full summertime, a soccer’s game between Italians and Germans. Not even to say it, slippers: in practice a classic. It takes roots in the night of the times, that is, since the Riviera Romagnola revealed itself as an important, internationally known holiday place. It looks weird, but, the one who started remembering his city, in a way, so expected, is exactly the one who has made of a fun, a profession and a style of life, out of trendy places future’s pleasures and amusement’s philosophies.
And yet my childhood’s memories start right there, in a vacationer Cattolica of the early sixties, Where my father, an army officer an a helicopters; pilot, used to take me to the seaside, for breathing good air, as medically prescript.
And right that Antonio Barbieri revealed himself, as a doctor of the psyche, a panacea against wear and tear of his first work.
It’s just because I can find , in his photos, my childhood’s shoots, my Pindaric flights of my first nights of midsummer and my jovial atmospheres of a world, really very closed to me. And more and more, because of the fact that Cattolica has proved to be up to date to the social and tourist new realities and to be adequate to them, showing chamaleontic gifts, thanks to clever contractors, (I’m pleased to mention above all, the name of a friend of mine, Alberta Ferretti), that have let Cattolica return to, the first line, within an ideal pole position, capable of lining up the best of the entire Adriatic coast. Undoubtedly, there isn’t “My” hotel any more, the Queen Mary, or at least, it’s no more the same as in the past because it was properly restructured. But such a circumstance goes fortunately back to the order of the things, or to the functional mutations, or to generational growth and to the desperate will of the territory to be up to date. Even if, now as then, the children aren’t let play and ever, who is not good at it, is the one running after a ball, in the soccer’s games. As mi father, my uncle, as a matter of fact.
Graduate in law and writer, author of several successful publications. Careful scholar of the social life and deep expert of the current reality, he because nationally know, as an opinionist of the pleasures of the amusement and expert of trends and new frontiers of the tourism, too.
