Intrigued and fascinated by the levels of interpretation found in Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose writing. By the blend of events and stories that find an equivalent even in our times. Eco creates a textual labyrinth and leaves you with an uneasy reflection of reality. As the author himself puts it:
“Then why do you want to know?”
“Because learning does not consist only of knowing what we must or we can do, but also of knowing what we could do and perhaps should not do.” – Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose

Corina Crețu, Commissioner for Regional Policy
