'Lo specchio del mare' is a facsimile of the seventeenth-century Genoese portolano Levanto. The earliest work is accompanied by extraordinarily evocative drawings, notes, maps and descriptions. For the reader, this portrays the essence of a great season of Mediterranean civilisation in which men of the seventeenth century, spurred by an insatiable enthusiasm for knowledge, forced the limits of the old world and created the boundaries of the new Europe. The work of Levanto is preceded by an introduction of sixty-four pages in colour by Predrag Matvejevic. Text in Ancient Italian.
