Never was such a big fly so beautiful, so still. Whether they are small or blowflies, agile and elusive, they make it difficult for us to stop to observe them, until now. Its body is covered with figures from an ancient codex, its wings gleaming golden at rest. They live in a world where humans have a bad name for them, although they once saved Rome from three separate invasions. Where history has been written, there was a fly.
