In this episode Pratt makes Corto Maltese drink from the “source of the Alchemy Rose” thus giving him a sort of eternal youth, a key for the initiatory passage to a spiritual imaginative world.The writer Herman Hesse, who Corto Maltese met in Montagnola in 1924, is a character who is directly connected to the content of this story thanks to his novel “Klingsor’s Last Summer”. Another real figure is Tamara Lempika, a very talented artist who was famous not only for her portraits, but also for her beauty. Rasputin and Corto’s friend Professor Steiner also appear.
