It is Anna who mentions the Secretary’s twin brother, Giovanni Ernani, an ingenious philosopher who suffers from bipolar depression. Andrea decides to meet with him and ends up so fascinated by him that he starts to dream of a plan that has the plot of a dangerous gamble.

And so it is that, one day, the Secretary suddenly turns up again. He starts speaking in another language, poetic and lucid, striking and surprising.
