San Vito /Tagliamento
On 6 March 1967, Wilfried’s mother is shooting a foto of her son in the kitchen. Wilfried is actually an excellent cook,, who is cooking for lunch for the family after his mother had decided to return as a teacher to the elementary school, and because Wilfried mostly is back from high-school much earlier than his mother he is completing his cooking abilities during the years.

For Wilfried, invited to attend the opening it is the 1st far distance travel after the coma (1998/99) and has therefore a particular relevance for normalizing the living conditions. But it was too early, it is today, that Angelo Bertani, organiser & curator of “Hicetnunc” finds Wilfried desperately sitting in his hotel room, refusing to make any step outside of room, he tells Angelo he can’t stand the situation any longer, but Angelo will understand only later – when he is phoning with Micha, Wilfried’s partner, that Wilfried’s refusal is a typical reaction on the physical and psychlogical consequences of the coma (1998/99). Only when Micha appears in San Vito two days later in order to take Wilfried back to Cologne, Wilfried is willing to leave the hotel room as a broken man, because he understands that the experiment and attempt failed to leave Cologne for the first time after all the stressful months to re-establish his new life. It will take another year, before Wilfried will definietely be able to visit San Vito & “HicetNunc” in 2002 and spend even some days in Venice, one of Wilfried ‘s favourite cities.
