Feet to walk
From our first months on Earth on, we develop the ability to move and discover the world. Our very first steps have a strong symbolical importance. However, despite its obvious benefits, walking has quickly been caught up by other means of transport that allow to go faster.
“Walking reminds the natural vocation of humans to moving. A step after the other, he sets off, he goes, he moves forward. He rediscovers the ardour of the beginnings, the impulsion of the new starts.”
