On the Silk Road - trailer

Francesco Faelli, 22. Friulian (of Cuban mother). A seemingly normal, nice guy, definitely introverted but extremely down-to-earth. This film, shot by himself with a simple Gopro, chronicles his bicycle journey that he made from Arba (in the province of Pordenone in Friuli Venezia Giulia) to Shanghai, China. The adventure lasted 148 days, for a solo ride of no less than 12,200 km. Five months where to make things more fun, Francesco decided to sleep in tents as much as possible and make do with cooking food with a small portable stove. Twelve states were crossed: Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Moldova, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and finally China in Shanghai.
