Memories of the former school have taken on new incarnations; as lost spirits, marks of weaknesses, plastered windows bear phantom bodies of old. The new occupant, preoccupied with historicity, conjures up countless sightings over the now incongruent colours. As the late Italo Calvino wrote in his iconic text

"... but the gods who live beneath names and above places have gone off without a word and outsiders have settled in their place. It is pointless to ask whether the new ones are better or worse than the old, since there is no connection between them, just as the old postcards do not depict Maurilia as it was, but a different city which, by chance, was called Maurilia, like this one."
