Via Nazionale

If I remind him of that walk along the Via Nazionale, he says he remembers it, but I know that he is lying and that he remembers nothing; and I sometimes ask myself if it was us, these two people, almost twenty years ago on the Via Nazionale, two people who conversed so politely, so urbanely, as the sun was setting; who chatted a little about everything perhaps and about nothing; two friends talking, two young intellectuals out for a walk; so young, so educated, so uninvolved, so ready to judge one another with kind impartialitty; so ready to say goodbye to one another for ever, as the sun set, at the corner of the street.
