We all dream the same dreams.
This work is concerned with shared identity and the Jungian concept of collective unconscious.
According to C. G. Jung we are all born with common patterns and ancestral memories,  archetypes that are the same in different cultures.
The collective unconscious particularly manifests itself through reoccurring dreams that with minimal variations are indeed the same for all of us.
Four main categories can be traced back in this chorus of recurring dreams: impossibility, unpreparedness, self-consciousness and loss.
Following a specific and different structure for each category, subtitles turn into a formal component, giving additional body and consistency to the voices, both Italian and English.
