We are facing a past civilization, now extinct. What remains of this civilization, who lived on iron and fire, is a city, or rather what here remains. To find evidence of its existence, we have only the tracks that this civilization has left behind. Pictures, testimonials, sounds that are - inevitably - stratified elements of a world that has disappeared.
