.. it's still dark and raining... There's something I want to show you, something I want you to touch...»
From the words of Gianluca Becuzzi: "... Limbo is a project dead and buried!" but just like in the best necromantical traditions, "sometimes they come back" ...
This complex work, published in two volumes, hand numebered and autographed, it's not a collection of old recordings, nor a compilation, but it is a brand-new opera. An alchemical celebration, based on the quintessence of the "esoteric trilogy" by Limbo.
