Description: A Traveller's History of Italy analyzes the development of the Italian people from pre-historic times right through to the imaginative, resourceful and fiercely independent Italians we know today.
All the major periods of Italian history are dealt with, including the Etruscans, the Romans, the communes and the city states which spawned the glories of the Renaissance. In more modern times, Unification and the development and the degeneration of the Liberal state into Fascism are covered, as well as the rise of Italy to the position it currently enjoys as a leading member of the European Community.
The Gazetteer, which is cross-referenced to the main text, highlights sites, towns, churches and cathedrals of historical importance to the visitor. For traveller's on the ground or students at their desks, this handy paperback will prove invaluable.
Valerio Lintner studied at the Universities of Reading and Bologna, and at the European University Institute in Florence.

Reviews
“Though it packs much information into a very small space, it is written in a light easy-to-read style which avoids the pitfalls of dryness or alternatively of forced humor…I recommend it to students and other interested in Italian history of whatever period.”—Open History

[A] unique... delightful book... provides a lively text in this small volume that goes a long way in explaining to the traveler just who has walked the stones of Rome before him."-Small Press

"A Traveller's History of Italy makes ideal 'before-you-go' reading, putting names and places in the country into proper perspective."-The Daily Telegraph (London)
