Abstract of L'avvenire avvenuto

As you are using up the time you assume to have left at your disposal, you may end up rearranging in your memory many scenes and lines of your existential script and, with a sense that is both of relief and fear, you realize that nothing is erasable, that everything adds together, and that the future is not so accidental or unintentional, as it is - itself - part of the past.
