Invisible Cities

Italo Calvino has written a masterpiece that is poetry, yet profound philosophy at the same time. This work demands a deep reading; you can miss it if you don't dig in to its surprises and lean, but etched language.

"A book (I believe) is something that has a beginning and an end (even if it isn't a novel in the strict sense), it is a space where the reader must come in, walk around, even get lost, but in a certain moment find an exit, or several exits…
This is a book that is made as a polyadr, and the conclusions that it has are somewhat visible everywhere along all its edges."--I.C.
