This is the heroin, morphine and opium routes explain by Mr. Martin Pera of ONI (Office of Naval Intelligence) before the McClellan committee on July 30, 1964. In this paper we see the routes of the drug traffic in 50’s and 60’s from Europe, Lebanon and Turkey to the USA and the drug trafficker involved

My loop around the United States of America


After three months I’m again in Washington D.C., where my tour around the United States has begun (the map of my loop below). A few numbers:
90 days
37 cities (including transfers)
45 hours of driving
18 hours of internal flights
25 hours by train
20 hotels
x number of people

First impressions:
- I travelled all by myself, but I’ve never felt alone. Apart from my scheduled meetings, I found people genuinely curious about what I was doing, helping me, supporting me in any ways they could. Everywhere, from North Carolina to Florida, from Texas to Oregon. From the gas station to the restaurant.
- I’ve never felt in danger or worried, except when, on my flight from Omaha to Chicago, the captain announced: “Welcome on board this flight… with destination Miami”. Silence, panic. He was joking.
- My favourite city…I won’t never tell you!

Thanks to my super-supervisor and problem-solver Caroline Martinet, who coordinated (me and) my program together with Reginald Dale. And thanks to the Transatlantic Media Network and the CSIS | Center for Strategic & International Studies for this dream opportunity they give to European journalists of knowing a little bit more of the United States and gaining insights into the diverse attitudes of Americans. Inestimable experience!

More on the content soon.

Now I’m ready to go back to Italy. Well, not yet…

What I have learned at the Poynter Institute: journalism can also be fun (see the chicken head of James Naughton) and it can also be music. Roy Peter Clark, vice president of the school, teaches the rhythm of journalism with the music: here he is playing a goodbye song for me: Santa Lucia.

It’s true! Journalism is fun! And Roy is playing the piano at our Ted Talks
