A poetic and personal voyage through world culture. A chorus of voices that show us the vastness of the world and its history. Pablo Montoya makes brief “poetic” incursions to visit illustrious travelers, painters and musicians. With wide brush strokes that cover, at most, a couple of pages, he offers us a glimpse of the lives and works of notable characters, both literary and real, such as Moses, Ulysses, Noah, Montaigne, Ovid, Ponce de León, Sinbad, Humboldt and Darwin (among the travelers); El Greco, Monet, Velásquez, Bosch, Giotto, Tintoretto, Titian, Brueghel, Diego Rivera and Botero (among the painters), and Telemann, Vivaldi, Bach, Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Stravinsky and Verdi (among the musicians).
