Umberto's Magic

As an hommage to Umberto Eco I have re-read some of his books. "Baudolino", "The Prague Cemetery" and "The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana".

It is fascinanting how Eco creates characters that seem to modify their reality by inventing stories as Baudolino and Simonini do.

In the end the reality is a sum of tales told from generation to generation by so many Baudolinos or wicked Simoninis.
