Lucia has taken the queen to Minerva, Europe smiles, the governess turns a gentle look towards the board: no figure is reciprocated by the look of the others. It is a brillant choise that expresses the difference between the moods at a crucial moment of the game, almost at the end. In the rhythm of the looks that of Lucia is the most bright: it turns to his missing sister, Sofonisba, the only one able to decide the fate of the game. © Graziano Spinosi
