About this title:

Synopsis: OVER 800 ILLUSTRATIONS A book that captures in pictures and prose the richness and diversity of the Italian heritage, A PICTORIAL HISTORY OF THE ITALIAN PEOPLE is a graphic tribute to the land, the culture, and the history of one of the world's greatest nations. Here are many of the most profound thinkers, poets, artists, and composers ever to contribute to the glory of Western civilization: Cicero, Saint Thomas Aquinas, Machiavelli, Galileo, Croce, Virgil, Horace, Dante, Petrarch, Giotto, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Bernini, Vivaldi, and Verdi. The reader will be treated to rare glimpses of such renowned historical figures as Columbus, Charlemagne, Garibaldi, as well as such outstanding men of science as Galvani, Volta, Marconi, and Fermi. Massimo Salvadori has included every fascinating aspect of the physical and spiritual growth of the Italian nation, from the original grandeur of the Roman Empire to modern-day Italy, which now attracts more American tourists than any other European country. With care and insight he illuminates the birth of Roman Catholicism; Italian feudalism during the Middle Ages; the gradual transformation of many different communities into one nation; the Renaissance; centuries of foreign domination under Spain, Austria, and France; Italy's second unification a little over a hundred years ago; the troubled monarchical phase, which in the twentieth century includes two world wars and the Fascist dictatorship; and the recent dynamic republican period. In Roman times Italian culture was brought to the Western world by conquest; in modern times by immigration. Professor Salvadori opens our eyes to the immense contributions Italians have made in many foreign lands, but especially the United States. Achievements in literature, art, music, architecture, business, science, and politics have enriched the lives of all Americans.
