Marco Polo & The Maps

This is a story that has been waiting centuries to be told...

The story of Marco Polo & The Maps.

In the thirteenth century, Italian merchant and explorer Marco Polo traveled from Venice to the far reaches of Asia, a journey he chronicled in a narrative titled Il Milione, later known as The Travels of Marco Polo. While Polo's writings would go on to inspire the likes of Christopher Columbus, scholars have long debated their veracity. Now, there's new evidence connected to this historical puzzle: a very curious collection of little-known maps and related documents said to have belonged to the family of Marco Polo himself.

In this brand new piece of interactive storytelling, you get the chance to guide your audience on a journey through several of these rare maps and reveal information not just about Polo and his travels but about your participants’ ability to sort fact from fiction. They will use their intuition to discover long hidden surprises and reveal specifics they couldn’t possibly know.

Beyond that, in the process of plotting a course through unseen maps, your participants will experience the thrill of ‘genuine’ remote viewing as they engage in a narrative linking European history, the age of exploration, the wonders of cartography and the untapped potential of the human mind.

Combining the incredible mystery of mentalism, the power of a real-life historical detective story and the gift of an impossible talent, Marco Polo & The Maps results in an unforgettable experience.

Marco Polo & The Maps comes with everything you need to perform: maps, an inventory and photos of the related documents, and a small palimpsest. As well, of course, as a full instruction manual explaining the stories to be told, the methods to be used and the experience to be shared.
