Specialist Notes

"Your present" social situation "works in various ways. We want you to consider this as a map of the Venice Biennale because, as happens in international art exhibitions, you can easily get lost. (...) Workers: If you cannot find yourself on this map there is a historical reason. It seems that there are two choices: you can go to "Route 1" and ask your union or your party for direction, or you can take "Starda 3" and agree to be disconnected. "Starada 2" is not for public use, and your prospects of gaining access are not good. "
