Wandering between Venice and Syracuse

Bringing the Historical Landscapes of Italy to Life

by Esch, Arnold

Whether walking in the footsteps of the last inhabitants of Ostia, in search of the sibyl on the magic mountain of the Apennines or rambling through the Venetian Lagoon region, Arnold Esch immerses himself in Italy’s history as he wanders through the varied landscapes giving us the feeling of walking right with him.

On deserted Roman roads, on ancient pilgrim paths, through Etruscan gorge pathways and in the tracks of the cattle drive, Esch roams over the terrain from Antiquity to the 20th century. A combination of historical and archaeological research and the different perceptions of Italian landscape in painting and in literature provide important clues in his search for traces of history. He then masterfully reconstructs how the landscape changed from the past to the present and takes us on a fascinating journey, often into unfamiliar territory. This layering of many different landscapes provides an impressive picture of the past inviting us to explore further.
