The anthology of the journeys of this Captain of artillery, who dwelt in the kingdom of Sardinia during the second half of the 18th century, groups together numerous reports, accumulated during visits to Germany and the Piedmont region, that describe the state of art in productive sectors. These reports, supported by a number of explanatory watercolour sketches, relate mainly to the mineral and metallurgical fields but also provide information on diverse artisanal activities.
