[last lines, subtitled version]
Letizia Battaglia: For the past two years I've shut myself up in my house. I don't meet anyone. I'm not disillusioned, I'm full of pain. I can't stay here. I decided to go to Paris because I found a room there. I won't stay there, but I must stay far from Palermo. I can't relive the torment that nothing has changed. I am Sicilian. I want the best for my land. I can't accept the way things are. I am 70. How long do I have to wait?
