N° 9


Where there is a journey, there is always a change.

When we speak about routes, what immediately comes to mind is fascinating words that evoke vast spaces and long journeys, but they can also be small, daily trips, or even imaginary travels. Because the best part of a journey is the route itself, which can be planned in advance, or changed on the go; it can take us right where we wanted to go, or open up paths we would never have thought of following.

Indeed, as they say, the journey is more important than the destination. This is the concept we wanted to represent in this issue of INNESTI, dedicated to routes, also espousing the words of the great traveller and storyteller, Mario Soldati, who wrote: the voyage is a feeling, not just a fact. 
The routes we have collected together are metaphors for change, awakening and transformation. Each one of our writers has described a different route, helping to build a web of inspiration that spans from the great spaces of an atlas, and migrations, to the journeys of the supply chain of a product, or the transformation of a material. And it matters little what ground you walk on, whether it is an ancient forest or the pavement of a metropolis; the important thing is to keep moving, and keep changing.
You don't need to go far, or even move physically - what counts is being able to change your perspective, your point of view. A route is the beauty of the departure, but also the satisfaction of the arrival. From every trip we come back different, maybe better, enriched by experiences and encounters. What is certain is that we will never go back to how we were before.
