Abstract


Corte sconta also known as arcana: the discreet charme of the revolutionary rascal. Filmic and literary imaginary of the 70’s, as shaped by giants such as Sergio Leone, gave us wonderful dark tales of former revolutionaries and felons joining forces against the mighty. Hugo Pratt has been an incomparable master of this narrative genre in the field of graphic novels as one of his more fascinating stories, “Corte Sconta detta Arcana”, perfectly testifies: the main character Corto Maltese juggles Northern China chaos during the 1920’s facing up to Chinese lords of war, zarist generals and Mongolian rebel secret societies.
