An experience that traces the epic of the great explorers of the past, heading for the mythical city of Timbuktu, the desert gate, the crossroads of nomadic caravans, the unreachable city of 333 saints.
Until the end of the 19th century, Timbuktu still retained its mysterious fame, which made it one of the most mythical and unreachable cities in the Western collective imagination. It was told of ancient treasures and sumptuous kingdoms of gold, but in reality its material greatness had long since vanished. What has remained intact until the present day is its halo of mystery, immediately perceptible among the narrow deserted alleys and its wonderful ancient mosques, behind the secular portals that I hide the inside the houses and under the cobalt blue turbans that reveal only the looks of the Tuaregs, the mysterious “blue men”.
