Forty years ago, in February, "Bruce Chatwin" visited Patagonia and her next book, "Chatwin in Patagonia", was the spiritual guide for all travelers dreaming of visiting the land where the world ends, his book is a tribute to the narrative as it is for the place itself.

The images are part of an editorial project titled "PATAGONIA the south of the world when the world finished". An authorship that led me to travel 17,000 km from Rio Colorado to the Magellan Strait, from the Andes to the Pacific. The geographical region of more than 900,000 sq. Km, three times around Italy, with a density of 2.21 inhabitants for sq. Km, 2500 km separate La Pampa to Magellan Strait.

A travel across, of Southern Patagonia, recounted with a look that portrays images of a little-known Patagonia.

From infinite landscapes ranging from the steppe to the most famous glaciers in South America, to the hard work of the "Zafra" in precarious conditions where workers challenging the climatic conditions and the wind of this silent land, beard their work to the modern, industrialized world.

The desolate old railway station abandoned Pilcanieyu, Nahuel Pan, Esquel, El Maiten and what remains of Argentine Southern Land Company Limited, founded at the end of the nineteenth century indisputable landowner of the fates of southern Patagonia, saw the transformation of the same land, in kilometers of barbed wire, marking the boundaries of the great " Estancias", which count for more than a thousand hectares.

Images depicting the inhabitants of the lands of the winds, which are the legitimate ancestors of those who now inhabit us, 75,000 Mapuches still live in the provinces of Patagonia.

The BOOK has won the "Nation Branding" from the Argentine Government
