migration

any cyclical movements (usually annual) that occur during the life history of an animal at definite intervals, and always including a return trip from where they began. The exact derivation of the word is from the Latin ‘migrate’ meaning to go from one place to another, but biologically a return journey is part of the accepted definition of the term, the outward journey being termed EMIGRATION and the inward journey IMMIGRATION.

Even now, when this migrational return (rebirth?) is officialized with a passaporto europeo that no Italian forbear of mine had ever had, I still hold on to the marked-down (and now, marked-up) paperback anthology with the large red sale sticker still on it, so that it reads "Gramsci: a sole 5.900 lire." Within a few months this "lira" would no longer exist, and this amount might become either incalculable or irrelevant, depending on where you stand.
