A different sort of narrative. We are introduced to a darkened elevator (in fact all the lights are out in this building of a certain era), we rise to the first floor. No one awaits. The most characteristic of former regime interiors, utterly without soul. We wait. Then, from a great distance, clicking heels approach, something akin to the experience in Venezia, where one hears footfalls, but no one appears. Someone did appear, Maroš Balog, who leads us down corridors choked with furniture. “We have reorganised,” he tells us. Romani representative for social affairs in the city government of Banská Bystrica. He is a career advisor. Higher education, and a quick knowledgeable wit. With aspirations of authorship. Delightful gentleman, as one can perceive. That Mr Balog works in the same district as the elected fascist Regional Governor Marián Kotleba is quite sobering.
