I was born in 1986 and in the same year a cartoon comes out: it’s “Saint Seiya” a Japanese serie which main characters are mythical knights with special armours and powers. They fight for the supremacy of good and evil. The most rapresentive of them is Pegasus (inspired by the mythological winget white horse Pegaso) who, thanks to his armour, turns indeed into a white robotic horse, rational and engineer as I am! Nel 1986 nasco io e lo stesso anno nasce il cartone animato “I Cavalieri dello Zodiaco”, serie giapponese i cui protagonisti erano mitici cavalieri con armature e poteri speciali. Combattevano fra loro per il dominio di bene e male. Il più rappresentativo dei cavalieri buoni era #Pegasus, (ispirato al mitologico cavallo bianco alato Pegaso) che grazie alla sua armatura, si trasformava appunto in cavallo bianco robotico, razionale e ingegnere come me!
