Perseo riesce a padroneggiare quel volto tremendo tenendolo nascosto, come prima l’aveva vinto guardandolo nello specchio. E’ sempre in un rifiuto della visione diretta che sta la forza di Perseo. Italo Calvino

(La scultura si trova al Museo Archeologico di Napoli)

Perseus manages to master that terrible face by keeping it hidden, as he had previously won by looking at it in the mirror. It is always in a rejection of direct vision that Perseus’ strength lies. Italo Calvino
