The story of this door starts at Marcello’s house.
Marcello was always complaining about a door: despite so much oil he did, it kept having a annoying creaking sound.
One day he and his girlfriend had a quarrel. She left the room and shut the door so hard that a hinge break off.
Marcello got to the conclusion that the door brought him bad luck. The day after he threw the door in the street.
I felt sorry that a door had to became the escape goat of people’s problems. I took it home and gave the door a new chance of life.
The relations of Marcelo died definitely , while the door is still alive, transformed into a table.
