Gondoliers on the Grand Canal, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the antiquities of Rome: Numerous photographs by Giorgio Sommer (1834–1914), the company of the Alinari brothers (founded in 1854), Carlo Naya (1816–1882), and Robert Macpherson (1814–1872), among others, shaped the image of Italy as a place of longing.
