The volume presents a number of significant approaches to the issue of water in Italy and England during the 19th century. The use of Lombard water for agriculture and transport celebrated by Cantù and Cattaneo as well as Tommasi-Crudeli’s wish for an efficient monitoring of urban drainage, find correspondence in Marshall’s proposal for a water inventory as part of national wealth and in Howard’s ample use of recreational waters for his garden city. The texts by Marshall and Howard are translated to Italian for the first time.
