listen to the audio file
How a journey originates, different ways of observing distant places and peoples, how to share emotions, paradoxes, the unexpected, diversions from the route, following something only vaguely defined that day by day turns into curiosity, a longing, a search. A first-time performance from an unlikely group of travellers: an actor-writer, an architect and a director. Travels taken together turn to off-beat narrative for the apprentice explorer.
Giuseppe Cederna(1957)is a film and theatre actor; he has appeared in 19 films and numerous stage performances. A keen reader, he has been contributing to daily papers and magazines where he writes travel articles. His first book was Il grande viaggio (Feltrinelli, 2004).

Giardino sconosciuto (Giunti, 1989); La Piramide rovesciata (Bollati Boringhieri, 1995); Atlante d’acqua (Bollati Boringhieri, 2001).
