Don’t you think that soccer, “the most beautiful sport in the world”, could be used as a metaphor?You kick a ball as the perfect form, representing the world, and good player is not the one kicking but who caresses the ball with his feet, domesticating. The feet don’t have the same feeling of hands, they must be educated, the power of the kick needs to be dispensed. And the way the game is not in keeping the ball between your feet, since accelerating the shift, avoiding the solos in favour of the symphony, chasing a grand finale that is collective joy.

Non trovi che il calcio, «il gioco più bello del mondo», possa essere usato anche come metafora? Prendi a calci una forma perfetta come la sfera, rappresentazione del mondo, e il buon giocatore non è chi calcia ma chi accarezza la palla con i piedi, addomesticandola. I piedi non hanno la stessa sensibilità delle mani, vanno educati, la potenza del calcio va dosata. E il senso del gioco non è nel tenersi la palla tra i piedi, bensì nell’accelerarne lo scorrimento, evitando gli assoli a favore della sinfonia, inseguendo un gran finale che è gioia collettiva.
