Marco Paolini struggling with the figure of Ulysses. When the gods play, they play heavy. If they make a mistake, they always have time to put things right. For the gods time doesn't matter: they don't age, they don't dry out, they always have time to do and redo things. Maybe that's why they can't understand that what happens to us humans changes things, sometimes forever.
