Entry Description

“Anybody can be a non-drunk. It takes a special talent to be a drunk. It takes endurance. Endurance is more important than truth.” Charles Bukowski, Barfly 'A Minigonna is a 50 years old wine shop in southern Italy. Opening times are 09/13| 16/20, time that marks the lives of a group of people who go to the shop every day and stay there all the day long. They enter at nine o’clock a.m and go away at 1 o’clock p.m, they come back at 4 o’clock in the afternoon and stay there until late in the evening. My work is not about alcoholism but wants to show a way of life.
