In the blazing tropical heat of summer, another abandoned palace along the shore; a magnificent building with four meter ceilings, four corner towers, a grand split staircase in front, and a circular carriage way in front of that. Tropical trees in the garden gone wild. My eye imagines a panning shot — like the opening of Il Gattopardo, but a little different — with the eye moving along the road, looking in through the wrought iron fence and trees, the main approach slowly opening up before the eye, then through the gate and into the park. As the camera approaches faintly music can be heard, music and voices, laughing, chatting.
