Teaser: What lies beyond those trees? What wonders are hidden over that ridge? Where do those swift birds soar to, high above our heads? It is with simple questions such as these that the lifelong adventure of Gaetano Osculati had begun. An inextinguishable curiosity characterized his existence, first in his studies, forcing him to engross himself in medical lore, theological knowledge, the natural sciences, without ever being able to become attached to one or the other. Later in his work it pushed him to pursue a career as a long-voyage sea captain and embark on direct explorations to every corner of the globe. Captain Osculati, despite the economic difficulties with which he had to struggle several times in life, marched in the jungles of the Amazon, crossed the delta of the great Mekong river in the Far East, lived in rough huts on stilts and exchanged gifts with naked wildlings, never worried or feeling the slightest fear for his life. For years he believed he had to test his courage, naively cradled in an illusion of immortality ... Then black Africa launched its call and the explorer responded, embarking on the mysterious Ethiopian lands to which Italy looks with longing and greed. There, beyond the horn of Africa, in the forbidden cradle of dark Christianity he found the Horror. Marred in both soul and spirit the Captain returned empty-handed for the first time, burdened with a story that he does not dare or is unable to tell, perhaps convinced that he had completed his final journey.
