La storia di Corto Maltese – Our fate is only ours to choose


First of all, Corto Maltese is a big dreamer, then, he is complex sailor-adventurer, sailor, pirate, treasure-hunter…

Overall he is a gentleman of fortune that goes around having adventures…

He goes from masonic lodges in Venice, to riverboats and revolutionaries in the Amazon, to pirates in the Pacific, to just about anything…

As a boy growing up in the quarter of  Cordoba, one day Maltese discovered that he had no fate line on his palm. Therefore he carved his own fate line with a razor, determining that his fate was his to choose. 

After that, he wandered through more ports than any other adventurer and fulfilled the destiny and dreams he had chosen.

Destiny is no matter of chance.

It is a matter of choice.

It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
