Through an app, Vienna Cammarota, bell – first woman in the world, to reach China on foot from Italy, will be monitored from a scientific and cardiological point of view.
Vienna Cammarota states: “I take the history, our history, of Italy from archeology. Proud to bring the values of Archeoclub d’Italia to the world. Tricolor on my shoulders I go to China on foot in the footsteps of Marco Polo. A doctor and a physiotherapist will follow me from a distance and therefore every day I will be monitored from a cardiac point of view, with daily remote exams through an app “.
“In Rome I will bring the map of the route I will take, I will illustrate the journey I will take. The date is decided and will be between 26 – 27 April and I expect a minimum time of one and a half years and a maximum time of 3 years. A doctor and a physiotherapist will follow me from a distance and therefore every day I will be monitored from the cardiac point of view, with daily remote exams through an app. I become a testimonial of the values of Archeoclub d’Italia because I am more and more convinced that archeology offers us the opportunity to read our history.
I take the story from archeology. For example, when I enter an archaeological park I immerse myself in those times and in history, in our identity because we come from that history. Each people is a child of its history. Italy has its own history that is truly rich in events and which today translates into the wonderful monuments and cultural heritage it has. So I will bring the Italian news to the world and therefore the splendor of Italian archeology and I will do it with the flag, with informative material, to discover the beauty of archeology in those places too, encountering Roman constructions on the street but also testimonies dating back to the era of Marco Polo and I will collect all this in my diary ”.
“I will cross Slovenia, Serbia, Bulgaria, then the Balkans, I will arrive in Turkey, then I will cross Georgia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgystan, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, China arriving in Beijing no earlier than the end of 2023 when I am 74! The challenges will be many and also the objectives. For example, I will promote the Italian cultural heritage in the world, the Made in Italy – continued Cammarota – I will travel with informative and descriptive material of archaeological and naturalistic sites always wearing the flag of Italy. Today environmental, cultural and archaeological tourism in Italy is a reality! I will do everything on foot except those stretches like from Azerbaijan to Turkmenistan for which I will obviously be forced to use a boat. For example, I will have to cross the Caspian Sea ”.
