Matter of circles on the river Arno

Beatrice invented Dante: she picked the boy and used all of her arts of seduction. An encounter designed by the distance between two subjects who discreetly observe each other from a hypothetical moment —at the Holy Trinity bridge— up to a point in which fiction risks loosing the plot's charm after years of building it through remembrance. Dante wrote a comedy out of this not so human drama. And Beatrice could never glimpse nor guess the divinely angelic sense of his childish evilness.
