#italy Snapshots of a journey discovering the soul of places: my most beautiful destinations in Italy.
    Tourist Attraction: The Grand Tour was a long mission in continental Europe undertaken by the wealthy of the European aristocracy starting from the seventeenth century and intended to perfect their knowledge with departure and arrival in the same city. It had an undefined duration and usually had Italy as its destination. During the Grand Tour, young people learned about the politics, culture, art and antiquities of European countries. They spent their time sightseeing, studying and shopping. Italy with its legacy of ancient Rome, with its monuments, became one of the most popular places to visit. In addition to the knowledge of the ancient world, the English thus came into contact with the works of Palladio in Venice and in the Veneto and with Neoclassicism in Naples. During the trip the young people could buy, according to their possibilities and means, numerous works of art and relics, and visit the ruins of Rome, but also of Pompeii and Herculaneum which had recently been rediscovered (starting from 1748).

    Grand Tour: In 1786, when he was already the acknowledged leader of the Sturm und Drang literary movement, Goethe set out on a journey to Italy to fulfil a personal and artistic quest and to find relief from his responsibilities and the agonies of unrequited love. As he travelled to Venice, Rome, Naples and Sicily he wrote many letters, which he later used as the basis for the Italian Journey. A journal full of fascinating observations on art and history, and the plants, landscape and the character of the local people he encountered, this is also a moving account of the psychological crisis from which Goethe emerged newly inspired to write the great works of his mature years.
