All great historical
figures have always looked at the sky to take comfort before their
challenges. Appearance of comets and of stars “novæ” have
always been welcomed as revolutionary and magnificent events. In a
spirit much more practical and related to everyday life, mariners of all
ages have looked at the sky with equal interest, to guide their route
and navigate the wide ocean.
The magic of the night and the
mystery that you can receive have mythologized the nature of the stars:
but, after all, seen from here, they’re just points of light. However,
you know, for those here on Earth, on the sea shore, the light is life,
it’s sight and visual, it’s heat and power. As distant, mysterious and
incomprehensible, stars have always been synonymous of splendor,
superiority, and enchanting beauty. No coincidence that we call “stars”
the leading personalities of the jet-set.
Sailing in the night,
we see a glow that is profiled to us from afar. Marked and net lines
trace its shape energetic and full of personality. Large mirrored
surfaces light up the eyes. A slight trail of sea draws the tail of this
comet, like a slight, quiet and respectful ripple in the dark blue
velvet of the sea. The new Absolute 56 FLY is sailing in front of us!
