Luigi Lanzi’s «Storia pittorica della Italia», one the masterpieces of Italian Kunstliteratur, is yet today an essential source of reference for art historians. Through the fascinating reconstruction of discussions and controversies on art that left their mark on Eighteenth Century Italy, Chiara Gauna proposes an interpretation of Lanzi’s «Storia pittorica» as the complex result of the close comparison between antiquity and encyclopaedism, territory and museums, language and art, geography and history, European culture and Italian identity.
