Romano Talone is an ice cream vendor who lives primarily at night among narrow cubby holes, dark rooms, public transportation and deserted streets. He never looks at his entire face in the mirror, but only the parts of it he needs to moisten, so that he doesn’t realize he’s getting old. His solitude gives him time to reflect on the possibility of changing his life and to imagine his ideal model of success: that of American businessmen of the mid-1900s. Because, marvelously and fatally, there’s always time to change, because there are people in the world who help you live and people who help you die. There are also people in the world who only tell you that by now it’s too late to change. Instead, even when Romano meets a 90 years old man, he asks him about his future, about the things he would still like to do.
