BABELEMonti & Taft through his publishing house launches its new publishing channel linked to issues of tourism and innovation Babel, alphabets of travel.

Babel is the meeting point between cultures, visions and styles. It,s a tower that we can build together stirring experiences and desires, words and ideas, stories and betting.

Lightweight luggage, a diary and a sextant accompany us in paths to share.
Our alphabets of travel draw a map to explore with new eyes: ready to browse and contemplate, re-read the way like a treasure chest of opportunities and surprises, both when we walk in our neighborhood either when we venture down under.

We tell what is happening around the world, exchange pictures of our findings, we reason on facts and figures of the move, we converse with travelers and, above all, dreamers.
