Text of Invisible Cities #2

  • *quotes from Italo Calvinos Invisible Cities

  • Cities also believe they are the work of the mind or of chance, but neither the one nor the other suffices to hold up their walls.

  • You take delight not in a citys seven or seventy wonders, but in answer it gives to a question of yours.

  • The city is redundant: it repeats itself so that something will stick in the mind.

  • Memory is redundant: it repeats signs so that the city can begin to exist.

  • The city must never be confused with the words that describe it.
