A travel magazine and a travel diary.
Perhaps it will be the large format, but those who travel to get excited and not so much to put flags have found the right tool to take inspiration and also to find magnificent places.
Cartography is an independent Italian magazine dedicated to the culture of travel. Each issue has no time and tells about three different destinations in the world experienced by its authors on their own skin through documentary photography, texts and daily itineraries.
It is a way to take inspiration and to take the path of distant places with the mind. But then, if you decide to really go there and let yourself be convinced by the poignant photos, this magazine tells you in detail where to go and how to go there through a precise, detailed and meticulous travel diary that will help you build the stages of your true voyage.
Paola Corini and Luca De Santis from Milan publish this masterpiece twice a year halfway between a documentary and a travel diary. Available on Frab's different editions to tell about magnificent and timeless places.
Language: Italian and English
Number of pages: 260
GEORGIA - GALAPAGOS - SWEDISH LAPLAND
What is so extraordinary about the Galápagos archipelago to have the strength to evoke, in those who visit and imagine these islands, the most fascinating and at the same time the most ambiguous scenarios? It is difficult to answer, but it is enough to say the name to see in the listener awaken attention mixed with curiosity. It is the reaction of those who somehow "know", have heard of them, have imagined and dreamed them. It is no coincidence that for centuries the Galápagos have been called Islas Encantadas. The enchantment here is not the aesthetic one, the wonderful, but the magical one, the spell.
The jagged geography of Georgia and its troubled history go hand in hand, made as they are of strenuous ascents and abrupt descents, little air, little relaxation to take a breath. And in this trek, as you go on, you understand better and better that the senses exceed the words. Perhaps the best quality of the Georgian's nature is being able to transgress one's singularity, not to consider oneself for oneself, but to project oneself into the other and open up to the possible.
Is it still possible to travel? One might ask, at this point, if the journey does not go beyond tourism: yes, it transcends it, because in theory it accompanies every form of movement, since the journey is considered not only a desire, but also the result of bodily experience. , psychological, sensitive and intellectual linked to the fact of moving in space, regardless of the forms and motivations of the move. The journey actually appears to be a move of the spirit, a particular experience of the mind and body. In other words, it is an experience of the world that tourism infrastructures compromise and that they would do well to preserve.
