As regards the title of the thesis, “Kaleidoscopic Relations: region-to-region dialogue”, it seeks to sum up what is the final result of the research. The kaleidoscope, in fact, is an instrument that consists of a tube in which are placed mirrors that generate geometric images in an endless variety of patterns, according to its rotation. Its name derives from the Greek kαλός which means “beautiful”, εἶδος which means “image”, and σκοπέω which means “observing”. Indeed, even though its name indicates something that has a “beautiful shape”, in its essence is nothing more than a visual distortion. Moreover, the kaleidoscope is directly connected to a narrative technique that in French is called entrelacement, which was commonly used in the novel made by intertwining stories and characters such as that of the Arthurian Legend in Medieval French and Occitan literature.
