"My Bartoli-Jose-Guiseppe-my red one,

I don’t know how to write love letters.
But I wanted to tell you that my whole being opened for you.
Since I fell in love with you everything is transformed and is full of beauty.
I would like to give you the prettiest colors, I want to kiss you…

I would like to see from your eyes, hear from your ears, feel with your skin, kiss with your mouth. In order to see you from below [I would like] to be the shadow that is born from the soles of your feet and that lengthens along the ground upon which you walk….
