Entry Description

In this work Paolo Sollazzo leads us through the boundless horizons of a vast land: Mongolia. It is nature, harsh and uncontaminated the real protagonist. A protagonist that dictates the rules, which the author at first seems only to bow down to, but to which he later becomes perfectly adapted. The cold, the rain, the snow, mountains, rivers, sparse trees and the desert, all these together delineate the borders of the author’s vision, they are the real protagonists of the narration. Herds at pasture or roaming wild, or the shepherds rarely met with, or the prodigious horsemen with their eagles, seem to be little more than extras. They occasionally appear to populate a white and empty landscape, a land harsh and sparely inhabited.
