La partita a scacchi

Episode IX

The final challenge between good and evil... over a game of chess.

The most "conceptual" and hard episode, but I like it very much: I think it has the merit to make once chess the real protagonists, since the game between the Empire and the Kingdom is followed with meticulous attention: it's the very famous Evergreen, fought in Berlin by Anderssen and Dufresne in 1852.
