The Rustici Codex tells the story of the existential travel of the Florentine goldsmith Marco di Bartolomeo Rustici in 1441. The route from Florence to Jerusalem, and then back to Florence, is described through an extraordinary mix of text and images. From Florence to Florence, on the way to Jerusalem. The final destination is God, through a travel to the place that Marco di Bartolomeo Rustici considers a real city of God: Florence.
