Within the various states that made up present day Italy the daguerreotype was found just as it was elsewhere in Europe.[1] There were travellers on the Grand Tour who took daguerreotypes when they visited the major monuments and cities such as Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey[2] and John Ruskin, resident daguerreotypists and itinerants.[3]
 
There are excellent exterior views taken by as yet unidentified daguerreotypists of buildings and monuments in Rome, Siena, Pisa, Venice and no doubt numerous other cities.[4] 
  
The Roman Photographic School

In Rome from around 1847 until the middle of the 1850s there was a small and highly cultured group of passionate enthusiasts for the new science and art of photography. This group included Count Frédéric Flachéron, Eugène Constant, Giacomo Caneva, James Anderson and the architect Alfred-Nicolas Normand. It also included the many artists that came to stay in the Academy of France in the Villa Medici. This notable group of painter-photographers have taken their name from their meeting place at the famous Caffé Greco in Rome. The name of this loose group being the Circolo del Caffé Greco (the Greek Coffee Circle) also known as the Roman Photographic School. The key source on the group comes from an article by the chemist and English photographer Richard W. Thomas, who made a trip to Rome in 1852 where he spent time with the Roman artists. On his return to England he wrote the article "Photography in Rome" (The Art Journal, May 1852) on the activity of the Circle and besides the people already mentioned he gives the names of other two people, the Prince Giron des Anglonnes and the Englishman Robinson of whom nothing else is known.
 
Around the Circolo del Caffé Greco there were a number of other prominent Roman calotypists including Borrioni, Castracane, Matteo Bondini and the Abbot della Rovere. There were also Richard W. Thomas and Robert Eaton from England along with a diverse group of individuals - artists, photographers, professionals and amateurs - that visited Rome and came into contact with the members of the Roman Photographic School. These include the husband and wife couple Guilloz-Saguez (in Rome in 1846-47), Firmin-Eugène Le Dien (some months between 1852 and 1853), Louis-Alphonse Davanne, Henry de La Baume, Andrè Giroux, Thomas Sutton, Stefano Lecchi, Luigi Sacchi, etc. Among these, the Scottish physician Robert Macpherson stayed and took up photography professionally in Rome and became one of the foremost interpreters of ancient and modern Rome.
 
The stylistic spirit of Roman Photographic School was born from the artistic and pictorial culture of the individuals within the group: Frederic Flachéron was an engraver who specialized in designing medals, Eugène Constant and Giacomo Caneva were both painters, the first was described as an "artist peintre à Rome", and of the second some of his paintings of Roman views are known. Alfred-Nicolas Normand was also a "pensionnaire" at the Villa Medici, he was an architect and saw photography as a documentary tool and his rare photographs clearly show this.
 
Their photographic language was dictated therefore from their individual artistic perspectives and was inspired from the ancient landscape school of painting that had developed in Rome. They were influenced by this to photograph the illuminated and shaded romantic grandeurs using the characteristic Roman light that for centuries had influenced the painters and draftsmen of Europe.
 
Flachéron and his friends were also experimenters, they exchanged suggestions, discussed techniques and variations of their formulas and were united by a true spirit of shared pursuits. They loved to go together on their photographic excursions and later to share their results.
 
By the mid-1850s the group started to dissolve - possibly for personal reasons or it may have been because the period of "pensionnaire" at the Villa Medici, center of the Academy of France, had ended. Giacomo Caneva and James Anderson remained as two true photographic professionals and they started to widen their repertoires. Giacomo Caneva concentrated more on genre and country scenes as studies for painters while James Anderson systematically photographed the ancient monuments, baroque buildings and works of art bringing them together in a professional sales catalogue.
 
At the same time as they took photographs of Rome there were many other photographers active - both Italian and foreigners - including Pietro Dovizielli, Carlo Baldassarre Simelli, the phantasmal A. de Bonis and the already mentioned Robert Macpherson. Frequently the photographers of this period had their background and training in painting.
 
The members of the Roman Photographic School normally used the calotype which was simpler to use than the daguerreotype but was also more appropriate for the landscape scenes they were interested in. The warm tones and particularly the Roman light were best captured with a variation of the wet-calotype system, called the "Roman method" that they had perhaps learnt from Guilloz-Saguez. Eugène Constant used the albumen-on-glass procedure that he learnt directly from the inventor Niepce de St. Victor in 1848. This procedure seems to have been used for a limited period by James Anderson and then by Pietro Dovizielli. The very fine detail and particular tonal separation of the albumen-on-glass process puts it in contrast with the softness and grainy pictorial appearance of the calotype. The positive prints were always printed on salt paper and from around 1852 they are also found slightly albuminated or as coated albumen prints to increase the tonal depth.
 
The photographers used the same equipment as employed for daguerreotypes and Caneva began as a daguerreotypist. Over the years the photographers increased the size of their works, initially modifying the hold-plate of the photographic equipment and then having larger cameras made. Caneva and Constant preferred whole plate transformed for the calotype while Flachéron, who himself had begun using this format, changed in around 1848 to a new larger camera that was made expressly for him by Charles Chevalier. Normand always made his calotypes with a simple whole plate daguerreotype size camera equipped with a simple lens. The lenses were normally simple achromatic but these replaced from around 1850 by double achromatic or by special lenses adapted both for portraits and landscapes through the movement of the lenses.

Carlo Naya[6] and his onetime publisher Carlo Ponti[7] made many of the classic photographs of the canals of Venice that were bought as souvenirs by those who travelled to the great cities of Italy in the nineteenth century. Edward Wilson wrote at the time of Naya's death in 1882:
‘the largest establishment we think we ever saw devoted to photography, in an old palace on the other side of the grand canal‘.
The canals and alleys of Venice were also documented in the 1890s by Ferdinando Ongania.[8]

Carlo Naya took many albumen prints of the monuments, palaces and canals of Venice.[9] He photographed the Palazzo Ducale, Palazzo Vendramin-Calergi, Palazzo Pisani Moretta and numerous others. John Ruskin (1819-1900) the British art critic, writer, social reformer, artist and occasional amateur photographer and daguerreotypist wrote about the city.[10] Accounts written about the same time as Carlo Naya was taking his photographs give a flavour of the city.[11] 
  
Italian Risorgimento (1849-1871)

Thumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail  
  
Giuseppe Garibaldi[12] was the hero of the Italian Risorgimento (1849-1871) which was in need of a popular hero and he was perfect for the part. In the following account from 1866 we get a sense of the cult of personality that surrounded him on his travels to secure the Unification of Italy. Photography played a part in the the promotion of his personality and resolve.[13]
Photography And Garibaldi. Mr. G. A. Sala, in a recent letter in the Telegraph, has a graphic word-photograph on Garibaldi, in commenting on the sun-pictures of the Italian hero. He says: "Photography has not done him justice. The sun, like calumny and the calumniator's favourite weapon, the frying-pan, blackens all with whom his rays, through the medium of the camera, come in contact. In the cartes de visite Garibaldi looks sombre, meagre, and worn. I was surprised to see a hearty, jovial man, with a great blonde beard. But for the eyeglass he used, and the stick he carried, there were no traces visible of the waves of time which have dashed against him, or of the cruel bullet which struck him at Aspromonte. He gave me his hand, and a hearty, sailor-like grip into the bargain; and if it be snobbish to have wished to kiss that horny paw, I am glad to have been, for once in my life at all events, a snob most egregious. A thousand times must it have been remarked in print that the aspect of Garibaldi is as that of a Lion. But no other simile will serve. ' Sorriso di madre, riguardo di leone,' the Italians say of him. His port and mien are, of a truth, thoroughly leonine ; but the ' sorriso di madre,' the ' mother's smile,' comes ever him when he converses familiarly, when he calls to some member of his staff, or, best of all, when he sees the boy volunteers, the hope and promise of Italy, passing before him. And there surely was never a countenance so thoroughly translucent, and from whose eyes there beamed so strongly the light of tho soul within the soul of a just and upright man, quietly striving to do his duty."[14]

About this photographer | Photographs by this photographer 
  
Thumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail  
  
The German-born[15] Italian photographer, Giorgio Sommer (1834-1914) had been operating a photographic studio in Naples, Italy since 1857 making photographs for the tourist trade with subjects including the archaeological remains at Pompei.[16] On 26th April 1872 there was a significant eruption of Mt. Vesuvius and Sommer photographed it.
 
David Forbes wrote an article on "The Eruption of Vesuvius in 1872" that was published in Nature the following year:
That, in these days of rapid intercourse, the re-appearance of volcanic phenomena on the large scale in any part of the earth’s surface should awaken a far more than mere local interest, was well illustrated in the case of the late great outbreak of Mount Vesuvius, during the continuance of which the telegraphic bulletins received from the fiery mountain became the subject of general inquiry and discussion in all parts of the civilised world; and even now that the eruption has entirely subsided, the publication of a translation by Mr. Mallet, of the report of the well-known Italian savant, Professor Palmieri, entitled “Incendio Vesuviano del 26 Aprile, 1872,” will be welcomed as a valuable contribution to English scientific literature quite independently of its being a book likely to secure numerous readers amongst the non-scientific public also.[17][18]
The great Victorian explorer Charles Montagu Doughty was a witness to the 1872 eruption and described it in his classic work Travels in Arabia Deserta (1888).[19]

When Mt. Vesuvius erupted in AD 79 it buried the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum and left ash-covered impressions of corpses of those caught in the hydrothermal pyroclastic flows and killed either by asphyxiation or possibly heat shock.[20] By 2003 around 1,044 impressions of bodies had been recovered from Pompeii[21] and in the nineteenth century Giorgio Sommer, based in nearby Naples, had photographed some of these archaeological remains

Italian photographer Enrico Van Lint (1808-1884) was a master of the calotype and documented the monuments of the city of Pisa.[22] This small album entitled Ricordo di Pisa from around 1875-1880 shows tourist locations devoid of people and was presumably intended as a souvnir.

Cyanotypes are rarely found in Italy. Cyanotype views are even rarer, while twelve topographical cyanotypes in a studio album format are virtually unknown, at least in my experience as a collector. Unfortunately, the studio which produced these images is not indicated, though the maker would appear to be a professional photographer who had worked in Florence. He used more than one lens, and he had access to privileged viewpoints, which would not have been available to amateurs or visiting foreigners. The subjects reflect the typical itinerary of the ‘grand tour’ souvenir album of the city, and they were probably derived from glass plates made at an earlier date, probably the early 1880s. The positioning of the camera and the absence of shadows suggests that each view was taken at the most appropriate time of the day, i.e., they are the result of a sustained and costly effort to capture the moment when each subject could be photographed to its best advantage. If albums such as this were intended as a commercial enterprise, however, we can reasonably conclude that the attempt was not a commercial success.[23]

When portraits for tourists were taken in nineteenth century Italy local photographers such as Giorgio Sommer, Carlo Naya and Giacomo Brogi all took stereotypes of people being robbed while having their shoes cleaned and eating pasta in a dramatic manner. These photographs were often staged and some were taken inside photographic studios.

Thumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail  
  
Anton Giulio Bragaglia (1890-1960) and his brother Arturo Bragaglia (1893-1962) began in 1911 to take photographs against a black background that were intended to capture continuous movement.[24] This was consciously the opposite of the objective and scientific approaches of Etienne Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge and was an attempt to capture the fluid and continuous dynamic flow of movement - hence the Italian name Fotodinamismo ('photodynamism').  
  
Thumbnail Thumbnail  
  
A few years later the brothers came into contact with the Italian Futurist painters (Giacomo Balla, Boccioni and Russolo) who were experimenting with how to represent movement in painting at the same time. Anton Giulio Bragaglia published Fotodinamismo Futurista[25] in 1913 and it was a plea to capturing the dynamism of movement rather than a single moment - whilst a fascinating argument it was difficult to capture in a painting that requires form. Having said this it is worth examining Giacomo Balla's 1912 painting Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash[26] or The Hand of the Violinist to see the same concept expertly carried out.

    Giuseppe Garibaldi, the Italian revolutionary leader and popular hero, was among the best-known figures of the nineteenth century. This book seeks to examine his life and the making of his cult, to assess its impact, and understand its surprising success.
     
    For thirty years Garibaldi was involved in every combative event in Italy. His greatest moment came in 1860, when he defended a revolution in Sicily and provoked the collapse of the Bourbon monarchy, the overthrow of papal power in central Italy, and the creation of the Italian nation state. It made him a global icon, representing strength, bravery, manliness, saintliness, and a spirit of adventure. Handsome, flamboyant, and sexually attractive, he was worshiped in life and became a cult figure after his death in 1882.
     
    Lucy Riall shows that the emerging cult of Garibaldi was initially conceived by revolutionaries intent on overthrowing the status quo, that it was also the result of a collaborative effort involving writers, artists, actors, and publishers, and that it became genuinely and enduringly popular among a broad public. The book demonstrates that Garibaldi played an integral part in fashioning and promoting himself as a new kind of “charismatic” political hero. It analyzes the way the Garibaldi myth has been harnessed both to legitimize and to challenge national political structures. And it identifies elements of Garibaldi’s political style appropriated by political leaders around the world, including Mussolini and Che Guevara.
