Go Jira Go Go!

Godzilla is coming back! --- to movie theaters, at least. Here above, our tribute to the myth (the elephant is there only for size comparison). As to Tasso, in Gerusalemme Conquistata he adds a new episode to the plot, that was completely missing in the Liberata; a whole new battlefront, indeed: Jaffa, in Cantos 17-19. And during the Battle of Jaffa, a huge monster rises out of the waters to fight against the Christian army, leaving impressive footprints as he moves, like Godzilla. He is based on the god Poseidon and, quite interestingly, his name is Fortune.
