    "Книга о разнообразии мира" (также известна под названиями "Книга чудес света", "Путешествия Марка Поло", "Книга Марко Поло") - описание путешествий Марко Поло по Азии и Африке, совершённых в период между 1276 и 1291 годами, которые с его слов на старофранцузском языке записал Рустикелло из Пизы (находившийся вместе с ним в генуэзской тюрьме). Одним из мифов, сложившихся вокруг этой книги, является представление о путешествии Поло как о первом контакте между Европой и Китаем.

    "Il Milione" è considerato l'opera storica, geografica, politica e scientifica più importante e preziosa del Medioevo, prima della scoperta dell'America. Nessuno prima d'allora, aveva riportato notizie certe sull'Oriente. I suoi territori, i suoi popoli, le loro usanze, la fauna e la flora autoctone, erano un mistero, che con le sue esplorazioni, Marco Polo svelò. Quando il mercante veneziano tornò nella Repubblica Serenissima, i suoi racconti destarono interesse e meraviglia.
