The land where the sun rises
Discover our trips in the Middle East
“For years we lived anyhow with one another in the naked desert, under the indifferent heaven. By day the hot sun fermented us; and we were dizzied by the beating wind. At night we were stained by dew, and shamed into pettiness by the innumerable silences of stars.”
For ages, people called this place “the East”: this is where the sun rose, where religions that now dominate the world were born, and where the cultures that influenced the history of mankind arose. Hidden in the sand of the naked deserts, there are ancient beauties and precious treasures: this is the land of the Silk Road, where Marco Polo traveled, this is the place where God’s son was born and died. The Middle East is a space of fascination and contrasts, of conflicts and sharing, of fights and battles for peace.
