L’appuntamento era allo spuntare dei primi raggi di sole del giorno più corto dell’anno – quindi nel primo pomeriggio per noi in Italia – nell’emisfero australe: gli indigeni Aymara hanno così festeggiato l’inizio del loro nuovo anno, il 5.531 nel conteggio andino, sulla montagna sacra Apacheta Murmutani in Bolivia. La cerimonia prende il nome di “Willka Kuti”, che significa “ritorno del sole”, appunto nel giorno del solstizio d’inverno in cui le giornate iniziano nuovamente ad allungarsi.
