Great interest towards this subject from an archaeological, historic and photographic point of view.Absence of books dealing with the same subject and characterized by the same photographic approach

The book concept lies in the author’s words: “The idea of illustrating the Silk Road came from the many books I read on this subject, from the many travels I made in the countries crossed by the Silk Road, and from my passion for photography. My idea was that of writing my impressions on what I saw and photographed, as I found out that what had been written before was often discordant. I won’t describe in detail all the places, but I’ll take picture of them so that photographs can make places speak for themselves. Visiting at different times the regions that once were crossed by the long caravan routes, I discovered that many ruins of ancient towns had disappeared under scrapers, sand or because of earthquakes. However, the aspect of some archaeological sites had improved. To my great satisfaction, in those towns the era of restoration had begun”
