Capomulini, Italy. I grew up on the island where nothing is perfect. In truth, there is something there that tidies things up a little. It is the black tongue of solidified lava that separates the inner sea from the outer sea. They are very different, the two seas. They are reigned by different laws and different ways. They hide different dangers and different treasures. When you are born in the land where nothing is perfect you understand soon that you must learn to move well in both of them as you grow up. You must learn the ways of both and develop a hand for both.
