SAMARCANDA

Poster inspired by Roberto Vecchioni's classic song "Samarcanda".

The song tells the story of a soldier who, after surviving the war just ended, is celebrating the escaped danger when suddenly in the crowd sees a woman dressed in black who looks at him "with malice", the personification of the death.

Believing that she is there for him, he asks his king to give him a horse to run away to a distant country (Samarcanda) but, just in that place, he finds the death waiting for him. The destiny wanted the soldier to escape just where the death awaited him.
