Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Helmut  Schlaiß - Italian Journey


"A photographer invites us to accompany him on a time journey to Goethe's Italy." Denis Scheck

Goethe on St. Mark's Square; Goethe in front of the Forum Romanum; Goethe in the amphitheatre in Taormina – such fine moments in human history are brilliantly brought to life in black-and-white in the Italian Journey. Following in the footsteps of Italy's most famous tourist ever, this photographic Grand Tour takes us through the whole length of the country where "the lemons flower": to the splendour of Vicenza, to the centre of the morbid charm of Venice, through proud Florence and on to the grandezza of the Eternal City or the beauty of Naples – 125 photographs show landscapes, squares, buildings and pieces of art that have for centuries been the epitome of Italy. Not even Goethe himself could have asked for a more stylish homage.
