"It's an edition, without using grand words, almost heroic, that we do with indescribable joy, but also immense efforts. The fact that we can think a different kind of normality together, which would move forward our dreams, our hopes, our power to create, the power to believe and the joy of meeting beauty, is the linchpin of all we must do. I must thank all those who are making this effort and who've understood how important the assumption and commitment we prove actually is," said the president of FITS, actor Constantin Chiriac.
