    When Abraham Lincoln appointed William Dean Howells consul to Venice, the young writer embarked on an unforgettable journey. Arriving in 1861, he experienced first-hand the political turmoil of the Risorgimento and the unification of the country. In this engrossing classic of travel literature, he describes his itinerary from Genoa to Naples and thence to Rome, painting a vivid portrait of the historical and cultural wealth of Italy and the stirring events he witnessed.
