Klappentext

Excerpt from The Interpretation of Italy During the Last Two Centuries, Vol. 17: A Contribution

It appears the more worth while to undertake such a task, because Italy, since the Renaissance, has meant more than any other single country to the culture-life Of all nations. Generation after generation journeyed thither to derive inspiration from her in various directions. Hence the vast multitude Of letters, travels, descriptions, essays, etc., dealing with Italy, which crowd the shelves Of libraries in Europe and America, and form one Of the important records of the civilization Of modern times.

Italy, indeed, is so many-sided that she could bestow on all who sought her shores gifts suited to their peculiar needs. NO two succeeding generations, at least during the last two centuries, have seen or appreciated there the same elements. What charmed one offended the Other; what was a matter Of indifference to one called out paeans Of praise from the other. As intellectual life widened, the wealth of Italy's resources became more and more apparent. The more one expected of her, the more she gave; she never disappointed.
