Description
Giacomo Foscari grew up in Venice in the 1930s and '40s, witnessing the rise and fall of Fascism in Italy. From a wealthy and well-educated family, as a child he loved history and mythology, eventually obtaining a degree in that field and a teaching position in Japan in the 1960s. Starting in 1993 with his return to Japan after a long absence, the story weaves seamlessly over Giacomo's mid-twentieth century memories of life in Italy and Japan. As he draws parallels between Ancient Rome and traditional Shinto-influenced Japan, people and places all seem connected in a certain way, with new acquaintances reminding him of those long lost, reopening doors to episodes of his own past.

Here is another great manga for those who like slice of life stories. If you've already read Yamazaki-sensei's Thermae Romae, this isn't like it all, except for the art style. Very calm and subdued on the surface, there are all kinds of things happening if you take a closer look, some of them quite tragic and painful. I can't wait for the next volume.
Incidentally, I'm reading the French edition and it reads from left to right. They don't normally flip their manga and this is the first instance I've found, but unlike most flips this reads very smoothly (I usually have difficulty with those editions.)
