The meaning of this metaphor

is the relationship between

an artist and what he creates and shapes.

Andrea Fago, or the "eating man",

took as usually the Alitalia DC9 flight,

on a calm spring afternoon,

a flight ought to land on Cape Town.

- There you go.

- Thanks..

What's your name, miss?

Caterina.

Caterina.

At what time we're done, Caterina?

We land at 12.

And are you going to have lunch with someone?

No.

May I invite you?

Why not?

Those would be some hours of quite

and beautiful travel.

First of all Egypt,

and its Nile,

and its green trees,

and its palms and

the cornfields, and the dark ocra villages.

After that Sudan,

and its neverending

southern desert,

so wonderfully pink.

I would like to insist that

this desert's pink is

really something:

but it's even more impressive

its vastness.

It never ends and never changes,

from Kartoum to

Rudolph Lake.

what gives a feeling of terror to this desert

though is the fact that

it is not a desert,

but a huge hollow country,

forgotten by both God and man.

Well, this was the desert

in which the Alitalia DC9 crashed.

All that I'm going to tell you

was not displayed

in this world's theatre but

in my head's.

It took not place in the space of reality,

but in the one of my imagination.

And eventually, it played out not according

to the contradictory rules

of the game of the existence,

but it did according to the

contradictory rules of the game of my reason.

Andrea Fago wathed those men

who where coming towards him.

Those ancient men

he knew so well.

He contemplated them, no, he recognised them

silent.

Then a smile,

an amazing smile stretched his lips

and enlightened his eyes.

That smile was enigmatic because

it was so human,

that it came from the mind.
