Once upon a time, there was a flourishing city, protected by mighty walls with mighty towers and fortified gates, with a moat where deer grazed, surrounded by gardens, fields and vineyards ... The gardens, fields and vineyards have disappeared, the walls have tumbled down, the towers were destroyed and of the magnificent gates, only three still make a stand. Against an adversary more relentless and ruthless than any besieging army attacking and annihilating a city's fortifications: progress.
