Venice, Italy. Domingo, January 8, 1324.

Good morning, father.

- Already made the count?

- No

To say God to him never is too much behind schedule.

- Mr. Polo.

- Father.

God hates the man who

they lie on all the things.

It does not die with the weight of

those lies destroying

its inmortal soul.

The man takes the world,

as same he finds it

Although the priest wants

to maintain it in the ignorance.

I went to China,

to the cut of the great Khan.

I served to him, I am

proud of to have served to him.

I fought to his side and

I governed next to him.

S0102rvase, would matter to him? Please.

Ve this?

This small piece of stone

a day will comprise of its world.

The truth

This is what I as much

I have said the truth,


nonfairy tales, the truth.

But not all the truth, single I

I said half to him of which I saw.

Genoa, Italy. 1298.

In last years, the Earth was

destroyed by hambrunas, plagues and wars.

And one of those wars was

between Genoa and Venice.

Two men had been in

prison and was a hell its end.

One of them is Rustigielo of

Pizza, the other is veneciano.

My name is Marco Polo.

- Taking, whiskey.

- Piensas that there will be peace, soon?

Inasmuch as time they will retain to us?

What you create, what opportunities

we must to leave here?

I believe that we will remain here until

somebody pays a guarantee by us.

How long will delay that?

And how we can be safe

that even so they will let to us go?

We will never leave here,

is that you do not understand it?

- The prison is not the aim of the world.

- Ja, truely?

- I Already have been imprisoned once.

- Here, in Genoa?

In China.

- You have been in China?

- And other many places.

Some places not even

known in Europe.

And all those places

they are here, in your mind.

And what there is if I say to you that there am

state in center of the world?

And I have seen the future.

There is no patience in a mind for that.

My trip began here,

when I saw cross those

masts in the port of Venice,

when I was young.

I wanted to know everything on

boats and where there are been and

what class of men and sailors

they mount them, and everything on seas.

My father and my uncle were

venecianos retailers

that they went to the aim of

world to look for gains.

What I wanted to know, was

on the hands that were

fact those beautiful strangers and

things that they negotiated.

I do not touch anything.

There is much gain in

exchanges where no veneciano

- iMarco!

- Or any other man of Europe,

it had before been.

It is massive gold. The great Khan of

China, Kublai Khan us gave it,

it happens safe.

He is the grandson of Ghengis.

- Ghengis Khan?

- The best soldier than the world

it has never seen. Yes.

He was then that I knew

that Chinese it was my destiny.

As it were written, that I would go there.

To where we know, we will make a fortune

negotiating with them.

- Yes.

They have silks and spices and

plates done of materials so

fine that you can, to traverse

of them, to see your hands.

They have caravans of camels

in order to negotiate by all Asia

They have gold and silver and diamonds.

The best craftsmen

and artists of the world.

And so vast cities

that they could be the oceans.

However, the empire of Khan

the West is as rich as nothing.

But we are organizing

the form to return to go.

We have listened that the Pope and the God

Christian, now allows the subjects

Chinese that says to nobody

God that they want.

But, Marco, if the true one

religion will arrive at him, then

While we removed good

gains of our sales
