Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION: Long crossings from one end of Norway to the other, on islands populated only by flocks of birds, in the midst of rocky and wild landscapes, for days or weeks, alone and without maps, in absolute silence. It seems an immersion in nothingness, instead it is an all-encompassing experience: it is not the others who mark the way, we choose it at every step. Our attention is sharpened, presence becomes constant: only in this way the journey is a true encounter with a participatory environment. Flowing waters trace the path, the wind and the rain set the pace, animals are alerted and follow the human’s path. Franco Michieli, geographer and explorer has, for almost forty years, been alternating adventures alone, in pairs and in groups, on beaten roads and in uninhabited places, relying on the indications of nature, certain that a way through will be revealed. In this book he retraces some of his journeys – from the whiteout of the Icelandic lava desert to the Andean ascents between settlements of ancient spirituality – questioning the idea of ​​company: we are more alone in the city crowd, where a myriad of stimuli disappears in a thunderous bombardment, than in the isolation of the woods, in which silence, for those who know how to listen, becomes dense with voices. Here, far from technological conditioning, our primordial and instinctive connection with nature and with our fellow men resurfaces: how can there be solitude among so much animated beauty?
