Tashi Delek! During the summer of 2007 I spent one month traveling across the Tibetan areas of Qinghai and Sichuan. Few months later the access to these areas has been denied to non-Chinese citizens. The photographs in this book are my attempt to describe the feeling I had traveling there. The unique atmosphere of this wonderful country, the spirituality of the Buddhism and all the symbols and colors of the religion, the friendly and very relaxed people always smiling and praying, the beautiful landscapes with amazing and breathtaking views.
When I've been back to Italy, people asked me to talk about this trip, but I had problems to find the right words to describe what I saw and what I felt. Tibet is a different world with different rules. The only thing I can do is to show my photographs in silence.
