"Cristalli di sogni e realtà. La cultura di Final Fantasy" ("Crystals of Dreams and Reality: The Culture of Final Fantasy") presents, in its title, a series of eight essays that delve into various aspects of the culture behind and surrounding Final Fantasy with a humanistic approach. The saga is examined through different lenses, tied to the personal experiences and studies of the involved authors, whose profiles range from academia to YouTube. This is not a comprehensive overview of the series, but rather specific explorations of lesser-discussed and intriguing topics.
The themes of these eight "crystals" range from prophecy to freedom of choice, from oplology to Japanese history, from the meaning of death to narratology, from fanfiction to branded content. With contributions from Lara “Phenrir Mailoki” Arlotta, Carlo Alessandro Bonifacio, Gabriele Campagnano, Livio Gambarini, Luca “GamerDex83” Mandara, Lorena Rao, Marco Seregni, and Francesca Sirtori.
