“Usually in the fall, when the rain season starts, strange characters emerge on the streets of mysterious city of Turin. Once I saw this huge tall man that looked like a building! He was walking a dog and it seemed he had more than just one hand:) I thought he might be an angel or a guardian - someone who comes only when it's dark and when it rains.. strange but good soul! Never saw him again after that night...”
