MARCO POLO

Marco Polo (Venice, September 15, 1254 - Venice, January 8, 1324) was an ambassador, writer, traveler and Italian merchant. The chronicles of his travel in Asia, along the Silk Road, inspired Christopher Columbus. This book has been transcribed in French by Rustichello da Pisa during the captivity of Marco Polo in Genoa, with the title Devisiment dou monde, and later became known as the Million.
