Côme crosses paths again with infected people on his way home. He has been recently working in Piero di Cosimo’s painting studio and the way to his parents’ house is long and risky. He walks along the docks and under bridges he meets all the world’s misery dealing with its gaiters and its pustules. He deeply wonders whether he should take a break while the epidemic fades. Thinking back, he should have become a tailor, a family tradition.
