These are the resources I used to create this Digital Portfolio.


You simply can't plan a journey or make an essay without the enriching and mandatory support of books. Even in the digital third millennium. I thank Giandomenico Michilin AKA Dj Mada and his girlfriend Camilla, who invited me to the SKY-Adventure One studios in Rome, for the interview portrayed on the "The Way I travel" page (download the "Appunti di viaggio" interview). Thanks heaps to Professor Catia Santini, for having chosen the best subject for the Digital Showcase Portfolio.

  • Lonely Planet Trans-Siberian Railway, Published april 2006, second edition.
    The ultimate travel guide. A down to earth approach, for any pocket, based on independent traveler's contributions. You can be a Lonely planet author, by simply exploring an area of the world, reporting in the finest details all the informations about it. This guide was a great contribution to the planning of my journey. It provided me all the necessary information to put together a tight schedule.

  • The Songlines, Bruce Chatwin
    First published in 1987 by Penguin books. One of the best travel books I've ever read. "No ordinary book ever issues from Bruce Chatwin. Each bears the imprint of a dazzlingly original mind." -Newsday's review of the book.

  • In Patagonia, Bruce Chatwin
    First published in 1977 by Jonathan Cape in U.K. "His book is pure pleasure-full of incident and anecdote and the oddest facts imaginable." Paul Theroux review of the book for The Times (London). This is the first of Chatwin books I've read, and it remains the most fascinating. Patagonia is a top priority in my future roamings at the far corners of this planet.

  • Bruce Chatwin, a Biography, Nicholas Shakespeare
    First published in 2001 by Anchor Books. "An unflitching look at a golden rascal...unimprovable and unstoppably readable" Pico Iyer review for Time. I read this book at the end of Chatwin's bibliography and I liked it very much. Finally I discovered what layed beneath a romantic restless traveler. He wasn't immune and unstoppable as one might think when reading his books. He was just a brilliant human animal, with an enormous charisma and thirst for knowledge.
