 Ilci and Todi, located a few kilometers away, look at each other and reassure each other, on their own hill and are proud to defend the memory of their past.
The elves, less numerous than once but of which there are still ancient examples, continue to watch over and take care of the people and their stories.

An anonymous chronicler writes:
"Black elves flaunted in heaven as prayers".
And here temple had been consecrated to Fauno, God of the woods; a temple a “where good wishes were made".
The view is particularly evocative, with Todi and other castles in the distance.
To the west, the Tiber River, down in the plain, has seen humanity and epochs passing through. Now it is filthy and "profaned", once it was limpid and welcoming.
Up to 50 years ago, women were used to wash their "clothes" and lay them down in the sun, like Nausicaa and her maid servants did, before meeting Ulysses.
For hundreds of years, before our accelerated age, the relationship between man and nature had a symbiotic harmony.
Ilci extraordinarily continues to bring us back to a rarefied and enchanted atmosphere, suitable to keep daily small dreams and to alleviate the wounds of time and life.
