I am an anglophile Italian translator interested in the cultural, literary, social and historical relationships between Italy and England during the fascinating 18th and 19th Centuries.
Letters from the exile reflects the mood of an epoch and it doesn’t refer to Byron only. Here you will find the lost world of Italy in England and England in Italy, represented by lost landscapes, wandering travellers, Ancien Régime dreamers, Romantic revolutionaries and Victorian thinkers.
From Venice to London and back.
English is not my mother-tongue, and therefore all my articles can be considered as translations from the Italian, so please bear with me. I have access to both Italian and English sources, but as a blog is not an academic publication, here you will not find any bibliographical information.
