Federico and his rooster lived together for many years in an undetermined past

Federico tells me: «thirty years ago I had a rooster. It was a nice rooster and I liked it. I wished I could have kept him so beautiful forever. So one day I took him to the embalmer, he was from these area, a man of the countryside. He killed him with electricity and embalmed him. It was a nice rooster and I liked it».
