It all began with a story too incredible not to be told. A random encounter with a timeless narrative, maybe never written and for now without an author. An audiotape found by accident at a flea market like many in Verona, with a story read by a woman’s voice on it. To date, we still haven’t been able to trace its origins, let alone an author.
«And you, what are you looking for?»
