Viaggio da Firenze a Roma 1775

Found in Rome, Viaggio da Firenze a Roma 1775Rome
An original print from 1775 showing an early route map of the journey from Florence to Rome. This route map was part of a collection of travellers routes published in a book translated as the  'Directorate for Travelers in Italy' by Carlo Barbieri, Bologna in 1775. 

The route takes the traveler from the independent city state of Florence on a passage that traverses a number of key cities including Siena and Viterbo and eventually arrives in Rome. 
The map outlines precise directions and information about the cities, castles, customs points, rivers, post offices and the distances between these various notable points.  The aim was to inform the traveler about the best route to take and where to find inns to rest and rent fresh horses to continue the journey either on horseback or by carriage. 

The print and paper from 1775 is well preserved and still has the original folds showing how it fitted into the guide book. We have mounted this historic piece in card here in Florence but we recommend that it is framed and put under glass to preserve it well for centuries to come.
