"The silence of the turtle (Testudo). Silent, voiceless and slow, the turtle traces a trail through the loose sand. The silence of the lute (Testudo). Intimate and refined, the lute caresses the silence. Pearling notes touch the strings. Turtle and lute, allies, once and for all.

La musica non è nient'altro che un decorazione del silenzio.

Music is nothing more than the adornment of silence. (Marsilio Ficino, c.1485)"
