L’Ultimo Uomo

L’Ultimo Uomo is the sixth dream of Rèfles: a concept album about self-reliance.

It’s the year 2047, human colonies are set up in three planets and the 36% of the overall population uses implantable technology in the human body. The central government of the First Colony has secretly financed a project to implant microchips also in the animals of the Third Colony as a completion of the digitization of reality. But something goes wrong in an ant’s nest: each of the ant starts to become selfish and go against its eusocial nature. This behavior led to a tremendous rebellion that causes the extinction of life in the colony.

Rèfles is the only one to survive.

Put out of his misery, confused and worried about what happened, he wanders through the empty lands searching for answers to his questions.
