Quest'anno, in autunno, Slow News compirà dieci anni. Non credo ci saranno celebrazioni, feste né botti. Solo il rimpianto di un altro decennio volato via, sprecato fra guerre, crisi, conflitti, ondate di profughi, estremismi religiosi e laici, sovranismi crescenti, forme palesi di neo-fascismo e puzza di antisemitismo.
