  • Every city is like a mind, and every mind has its own walls, its ivory and granite towers, bridges that can be crossed and others that you are not allowed to cross. There are two castles, and only wizards can access in both of them (they take sovereigns and toddlers into worlds of dreams); dragons exist in one of the worlds, but in the other one they are lost in time, leaving the casts of their skulls around.
    Because it is sure that a wizard, if he wants to have the image of the present eternal, he must possess two times, and not necessarily opposite each other, even if it would be better. Morgan is settled in front of the black smoke's mirror, Arthur has his bright armor and sword, Merlin has his dragon scales: they all reflect, they sleep, they watch their own shadows, and the shadows of the world.

    Ogni città è una mente, e ogni mente possiede delle cinta, torri d’avorio e di granito, ponti da oltrepassare e altri vietati. L’immagine è quella di un castello cinto dalle acque del lago. I castelli sono due, e solo i maghi accedono a entrambi (portando sovrani e bambinetti nei mondi dei sogni), e i draghi esistono in un mondo, e nell’altro invece sono persi nel tempo, lasciando qua e la calchi dei loro teschi. Perchè è certo che un mago deve possedere due tempi, e non per forza opposti, ma preferibilmente, se vuol possedere l’immagine dell’eterno presente. Morgana davanti allo specchio di nero fumo, Artù con spada e armatura lucide, Merlino con scaglie di drago: riflettono, dormono, sorvegliano le proprie ombre, le ombre del mondo.
