THE WORLD IN 2100 We will all be Nigerians
There is Africa in our past.

tutti WE WILL ALL BE NIGERIANS Romano Pisciotti

A hundred thousand years ago, humanity started from the highlands of the black continent to colonize the world… And there is Africa in our future.
Within this century, the bulk of the men and women who inhabit the planet will be native to Africa.

modello WE WILL ALL BE NIGERIANS Romano Pisciotti

An extraterrestrial who, in 2100, did a hit-and-run visit to our planet and would describe us briefly would report that, for the most part, our grandchildren and great-grandchildren have black skin and frizzy hair. At least four out of ten people who would meet would be African. Much more than Chinese and Indian. And the Europeans? Well, the extraterrestrial should have luck to find them. Virtually invisible, a small minority: one in ten.
The population of the Earth is growing, in fact, a bit slower than in recent decades, but will continue to grow, especially in Africa.

The Africa that it has today, scattered among savannahs, deserted forests, little more than a billion inhabitants, will have, predicts the United Nations, more than double (2.4 billion) in 2050 and four times as much (4.2 billion) at the end of the century. More than China and India combined.

Sub Saharan African economies

Sub-Saharan Africa is not growing as fast as expected, here’s why: Sub Saharan African economies are still recovering from the slowdown in 2015-16, but growth is slower than expected, according to the October 2018 issue of Africa’s Pulse, the bi-annual analysis of the state of African economies by the WorldBank. The average growth rate in the region is estimated at 2.7 percent in 2018, which represents a slight increase from 2.3 percent in 2017.

“The region’s economic recovery is in progress but at a slower pace than expected,” said Albert Zeufack, World Bank Chief Economist for Africa. “To accelerate and sustain an inclusive growth momentum, policy makers must continue to focus on investments that foster human capital, reduce resource misallocation and boost productivity. Policymakers in the region must equip themselves to manage new risks arising from changes in the composition of capital flows and debt.”

Slow growth is partially a reflection of a less favorable external environment for the region.

The de-civilising process

Adrian Wooldridge laments the collapse of manners

In his new book, “In Pursuit of Civility”, British historian Keith Thomas tells the story of the most benign developments of the past 500 years: the spread of civilised manners. In the 16th and 17th centuries many people behaved like barbarians. They delighted in public hangings and torture. They stank to high heaven. Samuel Pepys defecated in a chimney. Josiah Pullen, vice-principal of Magdalen Hall, Oxford, urinated while showing a lady around his college, “still holding the lady fast by the hand”. It took centuries of painstaking effort – sermons, etiquette manuals and stern lectures – to convert them into civilised human beings.

Reading Thomas’s book on a train recently I was gripped by a terrible realisation: everything our forebears worked so hard to achieve is now reversing. A process that took centuries has been undone in just a few decades.

There is no better place to observe the collapse of manners than on mass transport. The most basic move in the civilising process was to make a distinction between the public and the private: persuading people to defecate in lavatories rather than chimneys and eat at regular times in designated places, not whenever or wherever the mood took them. Yet today city streets reek of urine and trains smell of fast food. I recently had the misfortune to sit next to a quivering man-mountain on a train who proceeded to slurp a Coke, demolish a Big Mac, munch fries and spill ketchup onto his beard while giggling at a film on his super-sized iPad. His only concession to the fact that he wasn’t in his own sitting room was to wear headphones.

Overnight flights are worse. I’ve never witnessed anybody urinating on the back of an airline seat, as apparently happened on a Frontier Airlines plane this May. But I’ve watched a man next to me floss his teeth and then carefully place the thread on the tray table, another do a vigorous push-up routine in the corridor, and a modern-day Henry VIII discard his chicken bones on the floor.

Enlightenment philosophers were convinced that the great engines of modernity – urbanisation, commerce and travel – would also spread civilisation. Commerce was supposed to polish people’s manners as well as fill their pockets. The closer association of people with each other would allow the masses to learn refinement. Today those very engines are turning against the civilising process. San Francisco is at the centre of the biggest creation of wealth on the planet, yet its streets are often littered with faeces, garbage and syringes.

impronta The de civilising process Romano Pisciotti

The people who were supposed to act as guardians of high culture have collectively turned against it. Psychotherapists disparage self-restraint as a sign of unhealthy hang-ups. Academics are now so keen to denounce bourgeois civilisation as a tool of exploitation, patriarchy and/or misogyny that it can only be a matter of time before they start behaving like Josiah Pullen. One Cambridge economist, Victoria Bateman, turned up to a faculty meeting naked in protest at Britain’s vote to leave the EU. No wonder that today’s young, the most educated generation in history, are more likely to model their style on the urban underclass than on yesterday’s educated elite – hence the spread of tattoos, piercings and beards.

Civilisational decline is contagious: however hard you try to preserve your own manners you can’t resist the general trend. Make way for someone in a queue at Starbucks and you’ll have to wait ages as they order some ridiculously convoluted drink and then take the only free table. Keep the seat next to you clear on a train and you’ll find yourself sitting next to somebody who decides to treat it like their own sofa.

living The de civilising process Romano Pisciotti

I don’t think I’ll ever give in to the fashion for beards and tattoos, let alone turning up to meetings naked. But I’ve noticed that I increasingly circumvent the normal rules of politeness in a desperate attempt to keep going. I carry a pair of headphones with me at all times to insulate myself from the noise of my neighbours. I sprint ahead if I see any possible competitors approaching the queue for coffee. And I’ve graduated from putting my bag on the seat next to me on a train to a more cunning technique: I leave a copy of Jack Rosewood’s “The Big Book of Serial Killers” on the chair and smile manically at anyone who comes anywhere near. So far the serial-killer strategy has worked remarkably well.

For spinters // Per le zitelle


A Palermo Sant’Onofrio ha il titolo di patrono secondario e nel 1568 gli fu dedicata una chiesetta, in Via Panneria

Sant’Onofrio tutt’ora viene pregato perché ha il potere di far trovare marito alle zitelle!. Ogni sera, per nove giorni di seguito, si doveva recitare tra una preghiera e l’altra una filastrocca fatta apposta per chiedere la grazia a Sant’Onofrio. Mentre si recitava la filastrocca si doveva mettere una monetina da due centesimi nella serratura di una porta qualsiasi. Se fosse caduta la richiesta era esaudita!

Palermo, chiesa di Sant’Onofrio

In Palermo San’Onofrio is a secondary patron and in 1568 a religious group dedicated a small church to him, in Via Panneria

Saint Onofrio is famous because has the power to find a husband for the spinsters! Every evening for nine days, unlucky girl had to say a rhyme in Sicilian dialect between a prayer and the other one to ask the grace to Saint Onofrio. During the recite she had to put a two-cent coin in the lock of any door. If the coin fell the request was satisfied!

David di Michelangelo


d2 David di Michelangelo Romano Pisciotti

La pietra nelle vene e il cuore aperto agli spazi dell’anima, ai sentimenti e ai pensieri: il segreto del marmo rivelato dalla mano dell’artista.

Bellezza e armonia di passi mai mossi e combattimenti immobili, il peccato d’essere di sasso e il miracolo di una vita eterna.

Romano Pisciotti

d5 300x167 David di Michelangelo Romano Pisciotti



(The stone in the veins and the heart open to the spaces of the soul, to feelings and thoughts: the secret of marble revealed by the artist’s hand.

Beauty and harmony of steps never moved and fights, the sin of being of stone and the miracle of an eternal life.)

Il David è una delle sculture più note al mondo oltre ad essere una delle opere più rappresentative del Rinascimento. La scultura, che rappresenta il Re David prima della battaglia contro Golia, misura 4,10 metri e pesa 5,5 tonnellate. Scolpita in un blocco di marmo di Carrara, fu realizzata tra il 1501 e il 1504. Oggi è una delle principali attrazioni di Firenze.

The idiot


To explain the “idiot” Darwin gives an example:
Two friends are on a frozen lake where they want to make a hole to fish. One has the idea of supporting a stick of dynamite, turn on the fuse and run back as far as possible, but the other observes that if it slips and falls, it remains torn by the explosion.

Then the other suggests to throw at full strength away a stick with the lit fuse. Good idea, so do, forgetting that with them there is the dog that just sees that tube fly up, runs to take it and brings it back.

You can imagine the ending.
