  11. 11. 012345 VENICE - THE RUYI At the end of the thirteenth century Marco Polo came back from China with the legendary scepter of the Chinese emperor Qubilay Khan, the Ruyi. Both the traveller’s tomb and the scepter have disappeared but Carlo Dolfin, a retired professor, finds an ancient coded diary with the instructions to retrieve the scepter. ROME - THE RUYI An original letter of the sculptor and goldsmith Benvenuto Cellini reveals that the Ruyi was moved to Rome and later fused by Cellini himself in order to preserve it from the sacking of Rome by the Landsknechte. VERONA - EROS Eros gave the quiver as a gift to a woman and the bow to a man. He showed himself to them as his real self, so that they wouldn't have any doubt on the nature of the objects they had received from him but he didn't explain why he had given them those gifts. The man was a Montecchi, the woman was a Capuleti. FLORENCE - 2054 27th october 1954 20 flying objects ploughed through the sky of Florence and flew over the city's most famous monuments for 15 minutes. While everyone was staring up at the sky, nobody realized what was really happening. Extraterrestrials got in touch with a person, Cosimo Rinaldi, born in Florence and great connoisseur of the city, and gave him a mission.
