For this project, Boetti devised imaginary travel itineraries for twenty-five friends and fellow artists and mailed envelopes addressed to each of them at their first destinations. These were inevitably returned to him, however, since the recipients were not actually there. Boetti then placed photocopies of his returned envelopes inside larger envelopes and mailed them to the subsequent stops on the routes; he continued this process for further stops. Boetti's abiding preoccupation with travel and geography, time and space, intention and chance, and order and disorder are all embodied in the Viaggi postali (Postal Voyages).
