This great author defends the importance of mythology as a way of allowing man to meet with himself and with the feeling of belonging to the world, as well as the understanding of punctual situations through narrative reading. Such is this book by Geraldo Muzzi, a universe reflected from a small city, Matozinhos. It is a saga with mythological characters, among heroes and villains, in a fanciful reality. As long as history books describe notable people and situations, the picture of this book permits the glimpse of real personalities, anonymous up to then, truthfully responsible for the genesis of a town and its social consolidation. Fragments of instants, prospering families, servants who became solid foundation and pillars of a society being built - priests, dentists, foreigners, revolutionary riding motorcycles, deaths, victories, failures, landscapes, quagmires, - give us a precise and precious record of a past time responsible for the structure of present time.
