L'Occidente fu sempre attratto dalla Cina, ma l. a. mitica "Terra di Mezzo" rimase un mondo sconosciuto, favoloso e irraggiungibile fino all'inizio del Seicento, quando il gesuita Matteo Ricci (1552-1610) penetrò in quell'immenso Paese, facendo conoscere alla Cina los angeles civiltà europea. Fu un altro grande gesuita a compiere l'operazione inversa, rivelando all'Europa il volto della Cina: il trentino Martino Martini (1614-1661).

Questo libro vuol essere un contributo alla conoscenza di un uomo straordinario in keeping with fede, scienza, capacità oratoria, coraggio fisico, abilità diplomatica e doti d'iniziativa. Visse solo forty seven anni, di cui una dozzina passati sul mare o segregato in luoghi remoti e inospitali, ma, oltre a svolgere los angeles sua missione evangelizzatrice in Cina, riuscì a raccogliere sul Celeste Impero una mole immensa di materiale, esponendola in alcune opere che ebbero in Europa vastissima risonanza. Tra queste un Atlante della Cina di ricchezza e precisione eccezionali.
