At the base of a travel there can be personal motivations or professional. But the thing that any type of travels share is the discovery of something. The travel or better said the trip is not only also understood in a physical sense, but also in a metaphoric sense as expression of abandonment, internal search, desire. As in the american panorama (far away from these photos), the boost that stimulates a trip in the famous â€œRoute 66â€? among Chicago and Los Angeles is the same that brings you to decide to cross half of Europe. The careless regard for time, of what stop to do or why, conducted only by the impulse to drive, to have a new target to reach towards the horizon. I have traveled a lot in my life but only after 26 years comes upon me such a long car trip. Two weeks, seven states, thirteen cities,one 35 mm film and one bag.

I always go back there.
â€œAh, it was a fine night, a warm night, a wine drinking night, a moony night, and a night to hug your girl and talk and spit and be heavengoing.â€?

â€œNothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.â€?
pop up to the city of wierd feelings but as my friend says, full of beautiful fashioned women.
