Culture doesn’t need reminder. Sticker on the fridge door, will remind us from time to time to do something more useful for ourselves than to post status on social networks or the mind-numbing television watching.

Impatient and curious book reading, excitement in the final act of theatre play, enjoy to listen music, are some of the unsurpassed pleasures provided by culture. In return, it demands nothing nor bans anything whatsoever, least of all harvesting the fruits of its labour. Culture is precious heritage that shall not be wasted but continually enriched and transmitted to the latter generations. A lover who does not bother anyone, faithful companion, parent full of understanding but also a child who can’t live without care of ours. Beyond the unlocked doors of culture lies a multitude of magnificent, unexplored worlds. It is not necessary for Odysseus’s courage to walk its ways, but just simply to realize that life with culture is of fuller sense. It`s better. More beautiful.
