Vendetta? No, life is too short for those things! It's just Vesuvio—mysterious, moody and magnificent.
I came across the Lévi-Strauss quotation while reading a fascinating book called "Music & the Mind" by Anthony Storr. I'm on my second reading of it now—easily available online if you are interested.
Best wishes, V
PS Someone's just told me about the film, V for Vendetta!
