We are in Tivoli. The countryside is beautiful.
A modest villa, small and austere, stands in the center of the town, its main courtyard simply paved with black, white and red stones.
"Abandon all hope, ye who enter here. You are entering the domain of illusion."
The illusion is incredible.
We shall travel through this garden in the only direction which is meaningful. Contrary to Bomarzo and the Villa Lante, we shall go downward, following the water's course for the entire length of this mandatory journey, a form of education.
The villa overhangs everything. The revelation, the secret will be found at the bottom, at the very end of the garden.
