"An eminently urban creature, Carmi refers polemically to a culture of vision and noise that obsesses, disturbs and fascinates him. His moralism and a tendency to flee are combined with healthy optimism, so that he cannot but take a delight in the stimuli that the urban landscape, unbearable as it is, offers him every day. We could say that he has reached a hallucinatory equilibrium by translating the external landscape into a personal landscape that has been pacified and saved from the contradictions that produced it."

Umberto Eco
