IX EDITORIALE

ON THE ROAD

Since man began to walk the earth has always been moved by curiosity to find out what was concealed in his eyes beyond the horizon, an atavistic desire that pushed him to overcome physical, geographical and anthropological boundaries, with the unstoppable hungry for adventure.
That’s how for centuries discovered lands and crossed borders, becoming an integral part of the history of those places.
From the Middle Ages onwards the space of the journey, intended as a more or less predetermined route if not more often left to the scent of the moment, becomes the scene of stories and adventures, of which you feel the need to capture traces, a memory of what we have seen along the way.
Thus it was born a new idea of travel, entrusted to the daring search for knowledge and training, combined with an indomitable delight for evasion and fun. The journey as a challenge to the unknown takes shape in the late sixteenth century, “Journey to Italy” or “Grand Tour”.
The physical and emotional involvement that finds vent in itineraries starting from the “Italian dream” go through the landscape and the rediscovery of antiquity.
Chasing the dream of “open air museum” Scene Mediterranee wants to retrace what is now the pleasure of discovering traces of great civilizations, capturing and sewing up the extraordinary Italian landscapes textures, horizons that allow you to get in touch with the genuine authenticity of places, in the belief that the identity of a country is strongly linked with its story and its geography.
