After working in New York and India, and living in Shanghai for 5 years, Stefano, consultant, photographer and author, fulfils his dream to ride back home, in Italy, completely alone, by motorcycle. A trip of almost five months and 25,000 km through China, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Greece and Italy. Not just an adventure, but a journey through five of the most beautiful civilizations ever existed and through 4 of the main religious heritages of the world. All of this during a very sensitive historical time in the Central Asian region, a few months after the attack to the Twin Towers in NY and before the war in Iraq. In his book the author will make the readers live his experience, his feelings and adventures with different people and cultures. During this trip the author was challenged by extreme weather conditions, communication difficulties, sense of isolation, experienced the meaning of human fragility, and lost almost 17 kilos of body weight. Stefano explains: the more my journey was evolving, the more I realized how it was becoming a testimony of a different perspective of the current events and of aspects often shadowed by the news of the ongoing wars. This journey also allowed me to witness the struggle of these cultures in entering the third millennium at the same pace as the more developed countries. In the book, related to the texts there are a series of pictures/drawings showing the reader some aspects of what is told in the story.
