  1. Sounds like a super story, Maria.

  2. Do you think that the essence of a hero of a nation changes along the years or there are some costant archetipal characteristics ?

      Che buona domanda! Grazie Tutto cambia, perchè niente è fisso in questo mondo e epoche varie hanno i compiti diversi. Sul’eroe russo posso constatare che il bogatir è stato morto al’inizio del tempo Sovietico. Non c’è più…mentre i Cesari italiani si risvegliano. Che piacere di vederlo! 🙂
