Both books are fragmentary and defy easy generalization, yet challenge the reader to seek some kinds of unity in the narratives. To pick up Le Citta is to immediately lose oneself in its fantastic intricate architecture, and despair of writing anything coherent about it; thus making the decision of when to write about it seem rather arbitrary. That moment, for better or worse, just happens to be now… I begin with the Great Khan. He was old by the standards of the day, and his final years were dogged by failures. His two invasions of Japan were disasters. Holcombe, About years after Marco Polo arrived in Beijing, Calvino wrote his screenplay for a film, never produced, titled Marco Polo. He divides further influences of the medieval text on the modern Le Citta into character contrasts between the Khan and Polo, descriptions of cities, and structural elements e. Also, perhaps, a foreshadowing of Un re in ascolto, a king who lives in fear of conspiracy and who does not know his own domain.

Also the labyrinths which may have a profound philosophical resonance, cf. Finally, the fractal!?

One may also ask if images of inferno exist in Marcovaldo, that perhaps reappear with more ferocity, on a larger scale, in Le Citta. What do we gain, from describing an historical Khan at the apogee of the largest land empire the world has ever known, facing the inevitable beginnings of its dissolution? Then, perhaps, we just create a semi-orderly space for housing some last reflections and ruminations… Several fine moments in Le Citta demand to be recognized even in this humble venue.

The Memory Palace, Spence ; as well as self-referentially acknowledging the mnemonic function of this text, Le Citta Invisibili.

Second, the famous gnomic story of the bridge and arc has been analyzed by Laurence Breiner as itself the keystone of the text, with Venice, empire and market Imperium and Emporium as the keys to the underlying dynamics, certainly a compelling argument. Somewhere here, there is a story of how this image of lightness balances off the heaviness of the stony bridge, and how both contribute to the transcendence of inferno which concludes the book… a lightness which appears and reappears in Calvino, even, of course, in Marcovaldo overro Le stagioni in citta.

Related Papers. Apart from the frame a dialectical interplay between the desire for diamantine order and fears of rhizomatic chaos , how does Calvino generate the phenomenal ogical multiplicity of the 55 cities?

This numerary organizational structure already establishes Marcovaldo as an antecedent of Le Citta.

Clearly, the most productive trope for Le Citta rehearsed in Marcovaldo is that of the binary city. Some of these consist of nested cities containing alternating opposites, such as Raissa and Berenice; these remind one of the many reversals of fate in Marcovaldo, such as, for example, in Funghi in citta, or La pietanziera. It has been argued that New York is the normative city of Calvino, laid out on an orderly grid, while Venice epitomizes the unique and irregular Pilz, In Le Citta, the dialogue just preceding section 5, Kublai Khan claims to generate cities starting with the normative and gradually adding irregularities, while Polo starts with the most unique which we know from the first dialogue in section 6 to be Venice and gradually subtracts irregularities.

The unexpected transformation of the unique to the normative can be seen in Marcovaldo in I figli di Babbo Natale, and in Fumo, vento e bolle di sapone, wherein the wild multiplication of the unique spoils its effect Santa Claus; discounts for cheap soap.

Conversely, the ordinary tree or rabbit attain magical uniqueness in Il Coniglio Velenoso and La pioggia e le foglie. My favorite passage in Calvino appears in Marcovaldo p. This one lovely passage uniquely sentimental in Marcovaldo foreshadows several cities in Le Citta Invisibili, including the spider-web city of Octavia, the nostalgia for youth in Isidora, and the swallows tracing parabolas through the air in Esmeralda.

Other images from Marcolvaldo seem to reappear re- imagined in Le Citta Invisibili, such as the flight of the giant soap bubbles in Fumo, vento e bolle di sapone, perhaps refigured as the glass globes of possible futures in Fedora. Also the labyrinths which may have a profound philosophical resonance, cf.
