The unifying effect of the Mediterranean superimposes a sameness and likeness on all the unlikeness of its inhabitants. Therefore the Mediterranean from an ethnic point of view is a sixth continent distinct from the arbitrary five continents of geographers. The Mediterranean divides but never separates. (…) Take people from the very antipodes of the earth, scatter them along the shores of the Mediterranean and by an indefinable magic of the air, sun and blue skies or whatever else that magic is, they will all become Mediterranean in a matter of a few years.

This is a poetic travelog that takes you through a journey into space and time, a guide for travelers willing to discover the other side of the Mediterranean. Designed by de.MO, it features quotes taken from a rich literary tradition, stories and anecdotes from people encountered along the way and a beautifully hand drawn map. This work appeals to a very broad audience: those who are keen on maritime culture, social and environmental issues, anthropological and historical studies. It can help to understand the past and present of this region and to spread its message of cultural inclusion, a useful lesson to manage our troubled times. If you would like to back up the 6TH CONTINENT project you have a selection of rewards to choose from, including posters, shopper bags, signed copies of the book, as well as limited edition archival prints.
