Ten essays compose the portrait of Agostino Codazzi (1793-1859), one of the greatest geographers of the Nineteenth century. Adventurer, traveller, explorer, engineer, he lived during an age of revolution and restoration, patriotism and expatriation, delusion and disappointment. The book tries to redeem from oblivion the most significant moments of his personal and scientific experience. More than 200 illustrations make the approach to Codazzi particularly impressive and allow a second reading..
