Maybe someday some of my descendants will read it and remember me. My heart will remain in my manuscript. The vibrations of my words will resound in the heart of those who will stumble upon my story about Helen of Troy that never went to Troy. The vibrations of my words will last for a long time through my manuscript.’

I want to be famous now, not after my death, as happened to Vincent van Gogh,’ he said. ‘We are different, Giuseppe. Sometimes I feel you have no heart,’ replied Maria Paola.’ ‘I just follow my emotions, not my heart. Life is just emotion! If I feel something, I live it, otherwise I don’t live it. There is no heart in humans. We are driven by pleasant emotions or unpleasant emotions.’ ‘Surely, we can’t get along. We have different ideas! Now I have to go to church.
