Odissea Nec Plus Ultra
This deck is the last one of Odissea series and talk about the last travel and the death of Ulysses.
“Nec Plus Ultra” was written on the Pillars of Hercules, the limit of the known World. It means “No more further” in latin, and pass them was forbidden to all mortals. Ulysses was crazy enough to challenge Gods, and he was so hungry of knowledge to cross them.
The story of Ulysses crossing the Pillars is found in the Divina Commedia by Dante Alighieri. In this version of the story, Ulysses dies here, by a huge storm sent by the angry Gods he decided to defy.

If you followed my other projects, you know I’m in love with the reckless heroes, hungry of knowledge, who does not stay in their place and dare to challenge overwhelming powers.
