The summer of Ulisse

This is the Summer of Ulisse.

Ulisse is a guy with an italian accent who wanders around the neighbourhood of Marolles in Brussels. At first sight he seems to be an intellectual hipster, but in reality he is a homeless that claims to look for Penelope, his wife that is lost in the neighbourhood.

Someone says Penelope does not exist and that Ulisse has recently been abandoned by his Love and does not accept it.

(from Tennyson’s Ulysses)

Come, my friends, 

’Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.
It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,
And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.
Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
