The series is inspired by the readings of Il Milione by Marco Polo, which is not a travel diary but an oral lore told 26 years after his Asian voyage. Marco Polo was then imprisoned in Genova. It's an escape in the form of a narrative invented by a captive mind.

The project is a part of a prevailing research on ghost cities, this time shifted outside limits of reality and history, and into the realm of pure fantasy.
