Beautiful artist's book produced in an artisanal method, made in memory of the return journey to Italy that the artist's grandfather made from the Nazi prison camps between June 19 and August 26, 1945, traveling to south through the Europe from northern Germany to Tuscany.

The images were taken from the Internet in 2010 by typing the names of the cities they have passed through and the relative year. The color documents instead have been reproduced in full scale and are taken from a small notebook belonging to the grandfather of Botto, his passport and the letters sent to the family during the period of imprisonment.

Award-winning and highly recommended book.
