The noble soul drove him to face extraordinary characters and the comfort of a brotherly friendship with Enkidu, who had appeared as a rival and proved to be a vitally important companion: a strategic alliance that made possible the epic journey, as the synergistic union of style office binds the strengths and skills of the creatives in the harmony of the new way. – by Romeo Gigli
