The youth of the Damanhur Middle School interviewed Falco for Qui Damanhur Ragazzi, a self-produced journal made by the students themselves. Here is one from a series of their questions and Falco’s answers. Enjoy!

Lorenzo. F (7th grade): How did you get the idea to create Damanhur?

Falco: I’ve already heard this question! 🙂 Because I did not like the world, the environment in which I was living, and when like you all, I became an adolescent, I couldn’t stand the world of adults anymore, I couldn’t stand the things already taken for granted anymore, that couldn’t be changed… However, it wasn’t true: things could be modified, changed, with the pleasure to expand and grow one’s dreams. So, I imagined an ideal world, where people could more freely choose what context they wanted to live in, and little by little, it became Damanhur.

It is not perfect, we know this of course, but at least instead of taking everything that happens for granted, one realizes that it is to be perfected, that is, one assumes that everything can change for the better, that everything can develop, and that everything can be improved. I wanted to do this, and I did.

So, the thing to do is: if you have dreams, never give up, but make sure that your dreams will lead you somewhere.
