Our weekly appointment with the life tales of the valleys of Cuneo collected by the author Cinzia Dutto continues within the pages of Targato Cn.


Who hides behind these palms at work creating distinctive objects with ardour, talent and creativeness? Right now I let you know.

These are the palms of Alexandra, a lady who hides her goals for 13 years however then finds the power to emerge and begin anew. She spent a cheerful childhood, in a easy household with the values ​​of the previous, then she attended Artwork College, doing promoting graphics, and eventually a yr as an online designer in Turin after which she started to search out her personal path. , additionally as a result of Cuneo doesn’t provide many prospects.

at a time when for Alessandra the trail to comply with for the long run was not but clear, a job provide arrives, or a place as a chair assistant at a dentist. She does the interview and is employed however for her, as a substitute of happiness, tears! I perceive Alessandra’s tears, like me, she belongs to the technology of those that, having discovered a steady job, needed to resign themselves to that destiny. She usually turned reluctantly, abandoning rather more desired goals and views, as if financial tranquility, in these days, was the tip of happiness.

“You discovered a job? You do not prefer it? It would not matter, go forward and take your wage residence, thanks and maintain going!” There was no escape, no response to those directions and so Alessandra makes her first job go nicely. She is just not an individual who rebels and far much less that she doesn’t put all of herself even within the issues that she doesn’t like and thus months of tears, ideas, sleepless nights proceed however she continues regardless of all the things. Generally we’re good at placing our palms to our eyes and pretending that nothing has occurred, for a quiet life, in order to not must face the results of abandoning all the things and transferring on with out searching for happiness and nullifying ourselves.

Alessandra has continued her work for 13 years, initially with lengthy hours after which, when the disaster happens, the working hours lower and right here, in her, one thing clicks and nothing can return to the best way it was earlier than. There are hours to fill, the place there isn’t a work, a diminished wage to complement, and so Alessandra’s palms, which can not keep nonetheless, start to rework the fimo, a plasticine, into creative objects first for her, then for her buddies and eventually she goes to some markets and realizes that her merchandise are preferred, however she had a ardour for wooden, and so, as a self-taught particular person, she started to deal with this materials and create with colours and keenness.

With ardour he begins to create every kind of home items: watches, mounts, key chains, a thousand custom-made objects that she created and delivered with out hesitation. Carpentry had turn out to be her outlet for enduring the work she was pressured to do. I did not use the verb “power” randomly as a result of when your most important job turns into a power, a constriction, you placed on a masks day-after-day, ultimately you collapse.

Alessandra collapsed, bodily and mentally. She started to endure from panic assaults, she is misplaced, alone, it would not occur and she or he is nearly ashamed of her discomfort., little understood and accepted by these round her. At this level, this girl understands that she wants assist and thus begins her path in direction of the invention that her discomfort is nothing greater than a response of her physique and her thoughts to so a few years wherein she has been locked in her field of unhappiness. , that she has constructed herself piece by piece and that now surrounds her with out letting her out of it. Little by little she turns into conscious that she can not proceed doing a job that she doesn’t like perpetually, however that there’s extra to her, there may be nonetheless room to dream, to create, to reside completely satisfied and carefree, completely satisfied and grateful to rise up each morning.

The confinement turns into for her the start of her new path: two months with out work and a whole lot of area to replicate, discover options, take on-line programs, create her marketing strategy, start to interrupt down the partitions of her field of unhappiness.

Nonetheless, the return to work arrives. A nightmare that repeats itself and Alessandra feels dangerous once more, worse nonetheless, a lot in order that she suffers a panic assault at work. A turning level, a sign, a message from the physique to say sufficient! In fact, nevertheless, it was not straightforward for Alessandra, since she grew up with the priority of financial certainty, accepting to take a leap at nighttime, telling her traditionalist household concerning the stable values ​​of the previous, turns into an virtually heroic enterprise. The assistance of her husband, the one who has been closest to her on this alternative of hers, turns into vital to her and makes her discover the braveness to say all the things. A tearful video name turns into her launch, and her father’s consent helps her start to consider she made the appropriate determination..

That is how he was born”KALA CHILDREN“, a small craft workshop that creates particular objects in your kids. And the place does this place discover area? In a stupendous home above oxen, a city within the province of Cuneo, within the mountains, immersed within the forest, remoted from the world, the place Alessandra has began her new life!!! New residence, new life, new problem however lastly serenity! He chooses the mountain, for the peace and serenity that this place can provide, as a result of he needs a brand new starting and since he finds the area to have his laboratory..

The curiosity of the identify specifically led me to ask the way it was born. Right here too the reason may be very easy: Kala is the nickname that Alessandra known as within the household and Youngsters means kids and all the things she creates is just for the little ones, due to this fact good. The penguin, however, for being a monogamous animal, and due to this fact the image of the distinctive love she has for her husband, who’s an integral a part of this mission. A reputation that has a narrative behind it, a change, a seek for happiness and the notice that all the things needed to change!

The discuss with Alessandra was nice and what caught my consideration essentially the most was that, within the cellphone name that preceded our assembly, she had clearly advised me that she had bother speaking about herself. As a substitute, a spell from her concerned me in her story and I understood from her eyes what this massive change meant to her! There are nonetheless doubts in her days, that month-to-month credit score that now not arrives, every so often places her in disaster, the uncertainty of not with the ability to pay taxes or different fees {that a} VAT quantity has to bear, however this nice little girl doesn’t does. She understood that inside her, in her new life, there may be all of the power crucial to maneuver ahead, consider in herself and make herself recognized.

Alessandra’s merchandise are lovely, colourful, distinctive, nicely completed, handmade and have all her fashion, her want for revenge, to succeed and to current to the world all her creativity and want for a brand new starting.

I conclude this lovely story with this picture, with Alessandra’s smile and the invitation on her tweezers holder: “She all the time goals!”. She dreamed, she bought wings and now she solely has to fly…

Within the mouth of the wolf Alessandra, at this level the highway will likely be all downhill!
