The discovery of the unknown by venturing into foreign lands, epic expeditions to conquer foreign people or open trade routes, many of these events throughout the centuries have been captured on all kinds of mediums. They have been drawn or written on papyrus, stone or paper, have been painted on wood or canvas, carved in stone or recreated in mosaics, and the various routes have been set on maps of all kinds.

The more recent art of travel for pleasure is also richly present in SCALA’s collections thanks to travel posters, postcards, photography and numerous travel ephemera of all types.
