About this deal

Each one stands on its own, either as a separate city or, more likely, a separate imagined city for, of course, these cities do not correspond to real cities that we know, though attempts have been made to relate them to a specific physical environment. Trascurabili segni del tempo alla sovraccoperta (con una piccola mancanza di 1 cm x 1 cm nella parte bassa del retro di sovraccoperta).

Calvino, in chapter 9, truncates the diagonal cascades in steps: Laudomia through Raissa is a cascade of four cities, followed by cascades of three, two, and one, necessitating ten cities in the final chapter. Invisible Cities (and in particular the chapters about Isidora, Armilla, and Adelma) is the basis for an opera by composer Christopher Cerrone, first produced by The Industry [3] in October 2013 as an experimental production at Union Station in Los Angeles. The original 13th-century travelogue shares with Calvino's novel the brief, often fantastic accounts of the cities Polo claimed to have visited, along with descriptions of the city's inhabitants, notable imports and exports, and stories by Polo about the region.Each city is, of course, different and there is no connection between the different cities – no description of how they might relate to another city, no description of the journey between them. This strict adherence to a mathematical pattern is characteristic of the Oulipo literary group to which Calvino belonged. In each of the nine chapters, there is an opening section and a closing section, narrating dialogues between the Khan and Marco.

A. Dance Project are presenting 'Invisible Cities' on a unique platform — Union Station train terminal — and beaming it through headphones. The performance could be heard by about 200 audience members, who wore wireless headphones and were allowed to move through the station at will. Mark Swed, "Review: An inward tour through 'Invisible Cities'", Los Angeles Times, October 21, 2013. You can take the stories as a parable on the forthcoming decline of the Kublai Khan’s empire or you can take them as short, beautifully poetic descriptions of imagined places or as something in between, perhaps a series of pleasing portraits which combine to form an idealised structure of cities or even an empire. These five-city cascades are displaced by one theme column to the right as one proceeds to the next chapter.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.

It seems to have been very much influenced by Dino Buzzati‘s Il deserto dei Tartari (The Tartar Steppe), with its images of strange, unreal desert cities. Un imperatore melanconico, un Kublai Khan che dopo aver conquistato il mondo ha perso ogni speranza di salvarlo dal suo lento sfacelo, ascolta dalla voce di un Marco Polo visionario le descrizioni di citta misteriose" (dalla sovraccoperta).
