"Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else."

Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities (1972). "Le città, come i sogni, sono costruite di desideri e di paure, anche se il filo del loro discorso è segreto, le loro regole assurde, le prospettive igannevoli, e ogni cosa ne nasconde un’altra." It’s really pretty in Italian. (via fullerenes)
