  1. Digital cinema:a tale of two worlds? Obhi Chatterjee State aid - Information, communication & media Competition Directorate-General European Commission

  2. “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,it was the age of foolishness, it was the age of wisdom,it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity,it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness,it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair,we had everything before us, we had nothing before us,we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way ....” • Charles Dickens - A tale of two cities (1859)

  3. “Era il tempo migliore e il tempo peggiore,l'età della follia e l'età della saggezza,l'epoca della fede e l'epoca dell'incredulità,la stagione della Luce e la stagione delle Tenebre,la primavera della speranza e l'inverno della disperazione,avevamo tutto davanti a noi e non avevamo nulla davanti a noi,eravamo tutti diretti al Cielo ed eravamo tutti diretti dall'altra parte....” • Charles Dickens - Le due città (1859)
