L’initiative est née de la collaboration entre Fabio D’Angelo (directeur de la revue Viaggiatori Journal) et Silvana di Paolo (CNR) et voudrait aborder le thème du voyage – compris comme expérience physique, esthétique, imaginaire, symbolique ou métaphorique – dans les régions du bassin méditerranéen, riche de témoignages archéologiques nombreux qui montrent la continuité des installations humaines de la Préhistoire à nos jours.


Viaggiatori. Circolazioni, scambi ed esilio (secoli xii-xx)

7 (Special Issue/September 2020)


The idea for the present issue comes from the collaboration between Fabio D’Angelo (Scientific Director of Viaggiatori) and Silvana Di Paolo (CNR). It aims to inquire travels (may they be physical, aesthetical, highly imaginative, and metaphorical) across the Mediterranean Basin, full of archeological remains, which are proof of the uninterrupted presence of mankind since prehistoric ages. However, the Mediterranean Basin has an inestimable natural heritage, too. Its nature biodiversity has affected travels through sensory experiences with specific places and monuments, as well as through the suggestions both before and after the travels themselves – seeing and being in contact with the ruins, aromas and sounds of autochthonous tree species and natural elements such as water. The reports’ contents are various for the personal background, the type of the individual and cultural experience of the traveler, and his/her expectations before the travel affect them.
