The word labyrinth comes from the Greek labyrinthos and describes any maze-like structure with a single path through it which differentiates it from an actual maze which may have multiple paths intricately linked.

NON IGNARA MALI, MISERIS SUCCURRERE DISCO

[EN] ‘No stranger to misfortune myself, I’m learning to succour the unhappy.’
Such are the highly humane words that Dido in the “Aeneid” (I, 630) told Aeneas and his companions, who had just survived the storm which had driven them to the coasts of Libya.
Sorrow, misfortune, and all the tragic experiences of men unite, through solidarity, different peoples, and remind us that we all belong to the one human family.

[ES] ‘No desconocedora de la desdicha, aprendo a socorrer a los desdichados.’
Son las palabras humanísimas que, en la “Eneida” (I, 630), Dido dice a Eneas y a sus compañeros, sobrevivientes de la tempestad que los ha lanzado hacia las costas de Libia.
El dolor, la desventura, las experiencias dramáticas de los hombres unen, a través de la solidaridad, también a pueblos diversos, y nos recuerdan nuestra común pertenencia a la familia humana.

[IT] ‘Non ignara della sventura, apprendo a soccorrere gli sventurati.’
Sono le parole umanissime che, nell’“Eneide” (I, 630), Didone dice a Enea e ai suoi compagni, sopravvissuti alla tempesta che li ha spinti sulle coste della Libia.
Il dolore, la sventura, l’esperienze drammatiche degli uomini uniscono, attraverso la solidarietà, anche popoli diversi, e ci ricordano la comune appartenenza alla famiglia umana.
