Hi Luigi,

I am lacking still

    * a working input (*.tex) file
    * the command line to build it with ConTeXt

There are already two ConTeXt installations on different machines here.
The most recent is 2012.05.30 MKIV, on Ubuntu.
Are you saying I have to install the latest version of ConTeXt to see the effects being discussed?

I see vertical lines in your attached PDF... is this a new complaint? 
I thought the problem was that sometimes kerning isn't activated.

it's ok with freefont-ttf-20120503.zip
and the latest context.
You can install it from
and it's better to put into a separated folder than texlive .
