MANIFESTO

  • People aren’t brands: do not require, enable or encourage one-dimensionality in other people or yourself.
  • Creation without guilt:  start things without knowing where they’re going and don’t feel bad about it.
  • People aren’t brands: coherence isn’t a distinctive human trait.
  • Creation without production: you’re allowed to create things that are not and will never be products.
  • People aren’t brands: cognitive dissonance can distort your perception of others and yourself.
  • Public Display of Imperfection: be as publicly flawed as your life allows.
  • People aren’t brands: resolve to be an agent of nuance, averse to extremes and joyfully convoluted.
  • True is better than cutesy: truth is often found in the ugly, the rotten, the broken – all things that make us uncomfortable.
  • People aren’t brands: you’re allowed to change your mind, yourself and your environment. Allow the same to others.

    Hey Federico,

    I loved your stuff about Berlin, thanks!! I am moving to B from Munich in a month, together with my company and totally against my will, but your blog made the move appear less horrifying. So thanks!

    Cheers and keep writing

      Sorry you’re doing it against your will. But well, I’m sure you’ll come to love Berlin like the rest of us :)

      Forse siamo gemelli separati alla nascita come le protagoniste di “Il cowboy con il velo da sposa”…

        un film cult della mia infanzia, peraltro. Ma loro si sono ritrovate durante un campo scout.
        Ma poi mi sapresti spiegare il perché di quel titolo?
        Comunque le nostre corde vocali sono gemelle, e sentirti è stato impressionante.

          Non ti credo :D Mandami un file audio via mail ^^

  2. Oh my god you’re hilarious
    Detto da un’altra espatriata e al momento online marketer a München. E sono incappata nel tuo blog proprio durante qualche ricerca per lavoro, ma ti ho adorato cosi`tanto fin dai primi minuti che ti ho eliminato dalla mia lista di blogger a cui rompere le palle lavorativamente parlando. Al contrario, nuova follower.
    Scusa dovevo proprio notificare il mio apprezzamento. viva la pizza

    Hahaha Been there, done that! Grazie mille per i complimenti, appena ho un attimo vengo a stalkerarti sul tuo blog. Intanto: Twitter.
