This has to be one of the strangest days – and nights – of your life. A dream kept haunting you: desperate creatures, spooking you, trapped in your mind. Voices, some low and sad, some screaming in terrible high pitch, all crying for help. One word kept coming up, time and time again. Borghese. You couldn't resist following their call; it drew you here like a magical force.

This is the start of an adventure that will lead you through the magical park of Villa Borghese.
