About this deal

This, of course, confuses Kublai Khan ( Ma le città visitate da Marco Polo erano sempre diverse da quelle pensate dall’imperatore. In each of the nine chapters, there is an opening section and a closing section, narrating dialogues between the Khan and Marco.

Città reali scomposte e trasformate in chiave onirica, e città diaboliche e surreali che diventano archetipi moderni di un testo narrativo altamente poetico. Short dialogues between Kublai and Polo are interspersed every five to ten cities discussing the same topics.

Each description of each city is very short – often no more than a page – but, more importantly what Marco Polo describes is not the physical city he has seen but the impression that that city has made on him. The matrix of eleven column themes and fifty-five subchapters (ten rows in chapters 1 and 9, five in all others) shows some interesting properties. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. 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 is an example of Calvino's use of combinatory literature, and shows influences of semiotics and structuralism.
