Italians frequently encountered foreign travelers in salons and conversazioni, where the mingling of cultural, economic, and political elites enabled both residents and visitors alike to benefit from the rich intellectual exchanges that took place. As de Seta observes, from “the mirror of the Grand Tour . . Italy gained consciousness of itself” (L’Italia 17). The Italian Enlightenment (l’Illuminismo) combined with other cosmopolitan and indigenous influences, particularly concerning notions of nationhood, proved a driving force behind the transformation of the peninsula into a unified state.
Support for reaction, social and economic as well as political, and a vested interest in keeping the peninsula divided, proved the most important impediments to Italian statehood during the first half of the nineteenth century. With the end of the Napoleonic wars, a flood of travelers, for whom the Grand Tour had been largely impossible since 1789, poured onto the Continent. A romantic tendency emerged in the style of travel writing, which changed from objective observations about foreign lands to subjective responses to those cultural experiences, as exemplified by Byron’s Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage.
After the failure of the Neapolitan revolution in 1821, Vincenzo Cuoco observed that rebellions will not succeed unless citizens understood how their active involvement would change the status quo (Avitabile 5); romantics believed that literature could instill that understanding. The authors who admired Byron saw literature as creating a national consciousness, and the repressive Austrian, Bourbon, and Papal governments must have agreed, because they persecuted these authors, who often paid the price of imprisonment or exile for their publications.
