Il volume prende in esame le figure di alcuni studenti dell'Università di Padova che, conseguita la laurea in Medicina, raggiunsero il lontano Oriente con vari obiettivi - impiego, ricerca scientifica o, più semplicemente, viaggio avventuroso - e, sempre, con il fondamentale "bagaglio" dell'esperienza formativa nello Studio patavino. Ne sono testimonianza gli itinerari da loro percorsi verso le città del Mediterraneo orientale e le corti ottomane, quasi sempre al seguito del Console veneziano e della sua familia, quando raggiungeva le sedi commerciali o diplomatiche veneziane presso la Sublime Porta. Alcuni appena laureati, altri già attivi nella professione in patria, venivano a contatto con un mondo a loro del tutto estraneo: era l'inizio di una "pratica" che si confrontava dialetticamente con la medicina orientale e araba, superando le enormi difficoltà della lingua, dei costumi e del pensiero di popoli sconosciuti. I risultati dei viaggi furono più che soddisfacenti, così come traspare dalle opere dei medici viaggiatori: testi non solo scientifici, ma anche storici, a completare l'affresco di una civiltà legata alla Serenissima da rapporti - talvolta difficili - commerciali e culturali, in funzione di uno "scambio" dal quale entrambe le civiltà trassero beneficio. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… The volume examines the work and lives of some students of the University of Padua who, after graduating in Medicine, reached the East with various objectives - employment, scientific research, travel. The itineraries traveled by these doctors towards the cities of the eastern Mediterranean and the Ottoman courts (almost always in the wake of the Venetian Consul and his family) testify to this, when they reached the Venetian commercial or diplomatic offices at the "Sublime Porte." Some of these characters had just graduated, others were already active in the profession at home, and all came into contact with a world foreign to them: it was the beginning of a "practice" that dialectically confronted with oriental and Arab medicine, overcoming the enormous difficulties of the language, customs and thought of unknown peoples. The results of the trips were more than satisfactory, as reflected in the works of the traveling doctors: texts not only scientific, but also historical, to complete the fresco of a civilization linked to the Republic of Venice by relationships - sometimes difficult - commercial and cultural, as a function of an "exchange" from which both civilizations benefited.]
