Guido Guidi, Fosso Ghaiaia, Italie, 1971

– Je vous aime bien, dit-il, parce que vous aimez l’Italie. C’est un lien entre nous et un lien très fort. Je ne pourrais pas être l’ami de quelqu’un qui n’aime pas l’Italie. J’ai connu des gens qui étaient aimables, généreux, honnêtes, mais qui n’aimaient pas l’Italie. Eh bien ! il arrivait toujours un moment où je découvrais qu’ils n’étaient pas si aimables, pas si généreux, pas si honnêtes que je l’avais cru. Un homme qui n’aime pas l’Italie est toujours plus ou un moins un barbare. Ce critère m’a rarement trompé.

Félicien Marceau, En de secrètes noces
