The World of Cittàgazze was one of many parallel universes. Cittàgazze and Sant'Elia were two of the towns in this world.[1]

The world appeared to be quite modern; electric lights and fridges were used. Spectres were common in this world for several generations, however their number was greatly multiplied after Lord Asriel created a huge window through his world into that of Cittàgazze.[1]

In this world, every party of travellers must include a man and a woman on horseback in case the group is attacked by Spectres.[2]
