The documentary, named "The Silk Road in a New Century", will focus on history, culture and the economies of more than 10 countries along the ancient route. 

A crew will set out in July to travel about 16,000 kilometers across Asia and reach its final destination in Italy in September. The TV documentary will have 12 episodes of 30 minutes each.

In history, the Silk Road served as a business and cultural link between Asia and Europe. It has regained attention since Chinese President Xi Jinping proposed an economic belt of countries along the route.
