Il Veneto è davvero un caso peculiare nel mondo dei Dannati. Lo stesso dominio inattaccabile dei Giovanni, che dovrebbe garantire stabilità alla regione, è infatti paradossalmente la causa di uno dei più bizzarri conflitti che infiammano i figli di Caino nelle notti moderne, la Danza dei Burattini. Il termine, forgiato in tono derisorio da un Anziano Ventrue in visita a Venezia, è divenuto subito popolare nei salotti veneziani: esso indica lo stato di guerra costante che infiamma tutto ciò che è oltre Venezia. Di fatto, tre corti diverse, ciascuna con il proprio Principe, si sono autoproclamate Corte di Venezia. La cosa che rende la situazione comica, agli occhi di Giovanni e osservatori esterni, è che nessuno di questi sedicenti Principi ha superato il secolo di non vita: di fatto, sembrano bimbi che litigano contendendosi i giocattoli mentre i genitori sono impegnati a lavoro.

Per i Necromanti, i Neonati veneti sono delle contraddizioni viventi: lottano all'ultimo sangue per restaurare una gloria che era già sorpassata molto prima del loro Abbraccio, per riconquistare territori in nome di clan che in realtà non hanno alcun desiderio di riaverli e per ottenere un trono che nemmeno esiste davvero. La Danza dei Burattini viene quindi generalmente ignorata dai signori di Venezia, se non quando l'occasionale Infante fa qualcosa di davvero stupido: allora i genitori entrano nella cameretta, sequestrano i giocattoli e ritorna la pace – almeno per un po'. Basta infatti che gli adulti voltino di nuovo le spalle, e tutto ricomincia da capo, in un'eterna recita che non pare destinata a finire mai.

In realtà, probabilmente molti Anziani smetterebbero di ridere, se si prendessero la briga di scendere dai loro piedistalli dorati e osservare con maggiore attenzione cosa sta accadendo.

Quando i burattini ballano, infatti, si può star certi che dei burattinai debbano essere nei paraggi. E se solo qualcuno si preoccupasse di seguire i fili delle marionette, scoprirebbe quale mostruoso ragno si nasconda al centro della tela...

Veneto region is really a peculiar case in the world of the Damned. The same unassailable rule of the Giovanni, which should guarantee stability to the region, is in fact paradoxically the cause of one of the most bizarre conflicts inflaming the sons of Cain in modern nights, “la Danza dei Burattini” (the Dance of Puppets). The term, forged in derisive spirit by a Ventrue Elder visiting Venice, has immediately become popular in the Venetian halls. It indicates the constant state of war involving everything and everyone beyond Venice. Three different courts, each with its own Prince, have proclaimed themselves the Court of Venice. What makes the situation comical, at least to outside observers and in Giovanni's eyes, is that none of these self-styled Princes have passed the century of non-life. They look like children fighting over toys while their parents are busy at work.

For the Necromancers, the Venetian Neonates are living contradictions: they fight to the death to restore a glory that was already surpassed long before their Embrace, to recover territories in the name of clans that have no real desire to get them back, and to win a throne that does not even exist. Therefore, the Dance of Puppets is generally ignored by the lords of Venice, except when the occasional Neonate does something especially stupid. When that occurs the parents enter the children room, take the toys away, and then peace returns - at least temporarily. However, as soon as the adults turn their backs, the process starts all over again, like an eternal, never ending play.

Actually, many Elders would probably stop laughing if they took the trouble to get off their golden thrones and pay more attention to what is really happening.

When the puppets dance, in fact, you can be sure that puppeteers are around. And if only someone would take the trouble to follow the strings of the puppets, they would discover which monstrous spider hides in the center of the web...

I am following this with interest. If there is more interest, would you possibly be pursuing other related projects? (I have a STRONG interest in a Milan by Night or Lombardy by Night product to be able to do more with Prince Giangaleazzo or Kasim Bayar)

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
