China has fuelled the imaginations of Europeans for more than a thousand years. Attracted by legends ans fragmentary tales that circulated about this totally unknown far-away country, and later by the exotic products that arrived in the West via the Silk Road, many Western travellers, from the Middle Ages onward, set out for China: Jean de Plan Carpin (from 1245 to 1246), Guillaume de Rubroeck (from 1253 to 1255), Marco Polo (from 1275 to 1290), Odoric de Pordenone (1323-1328), Matteo Ricci (from 1582 to 1610), Ferdinand Verbiest (from 1656 to 1688) and Lord Marcartney (from 1792 to 1794).
