The Story Torcello told Tomaso
Two brothers with two natures and two destinies.
Simply in childhood, one had scuro (dark) eyes, the other had green.
But In adulthood,
one was the master of plebeian glass, and the other a master of ships.
When the last mast of welded steel was secured to the mighty floating vessel,
Tomaso felt in his bones all the innocence of childhood flee from his body.
No longer would they enjoy together sweet steals on market day.
Toparo had separated him from his brother further than he feared to reach.
