I’m happy the statue of Colston was pulling down yesterday in a protest in Bristol.
He was a slave trader, and we should get ashamed and outrage for why it was there in the first place.
It represented a celebration of the brutality, cruelty and arrogance of Empire.
Robert Clive, who raped and pillaged India in an orgy of imperial criminality excessive even for the 18th century, has his statue outside the Foreign Office in London.
It should be removed right now.
I wanted those statues to be removed as they should not be celebrated.
I want something similar has been in done in East Europe when the Berlin’s wall collapse and they removed all the statue who remember the communist time.
This terrible history of slavery should always be remembered in the school’s book and not celebrate keeping statues out of the time.
By Massimo Usai Arsenal is the football team of the heart. Arsenal, after 25 uninterrupted years in Europe, will not participate in the next continental competitions. As was quickly expected, finding a better manager than Arsene Wenger has not been possible to date. In the last few years, the bungling fans with Wenger in charge […]
By Massimo Usai It’s time to promote some of my pictures here that you could buy on some website and have in any format do you like. There are many pictures in the last few years in different woods in Europe, where trees could have so many stimulating effects. I worked out the pictures using […]
By Massimo Usai (Italian version) It is official, the terraces and bars of half of Europe will reopen this day. Honestly, I was starting to think this day would never come. Some people may think it’s not enough. They may not even consider a return to normality with just half of the business allowed to […]
By Massimo Usai Ed eccoci arrivare al vero problema di questi giorni.. Quelli che mi ero stupidamente dimenticato ed avevo sottovalutato. Trascorrere nuovamente molto del mio tempo sociale fuori di casa e non su zoom, mi ha presentato una sfida che non mi aspettavo: semplicemente non c’è un buona camicia o un buon paio di jeans […]
By Massimo Usai Sunday. One word and one thing to do. Outside, the weather is far from being spring. Better work in my studio. Some photos to take for the catalogue to be show off soon on my website.

By Massimo Usai My “pandemic” year began on the evening of Wednesday, March 05 2020, when I was forced to cancel the air tickets I had purchased a week earlier. The ticket was for an early spring weekend to pass between Rome and Naples. For the first half of that week, I had tried to […]
By Massimo Usai È ufficiale, le terrazze e i locali di mezza Europa riapriranno nel mese di Maggio. Onestamente, stavo iniziando a pensare che questo giorno non sarebbe mai arrivato. Alcuni forse pensano che non sia abbastanza, e possono anche non considerare un ritorno alla normalità, ma il fatto che qualcosa e qualcuno ritornerà in […]
By Massimo usai . What memories bring me back to this song, a cover from Fiona Apple. The original song from The Waterboys was already perfect, to be honest. Still, Apple’s voice sounds brilliant and brings me the same emotions I had when I was in my 20s, and I heard for the first time this […]
