Take a photographic journey into Italy’s most beautiful and characteristic vistas in Goethe's footsteps.

You love to travel, you have explored or are curious about venturing through Italy, you enjoy photography? This gathering will delight you with a perfect balance of history, travel, and photography tips, all punctuated with excerpts from Goethe's writings.  

In ''Italian Journey'' (Italienische Reise) - one of the classics of travel literature – the then 37-year-old Goethe, who had set off for Italy from Weimar on September 3, 1786 during a full-blown midlife crisis, recalls his musing, romances and adventures during his incognito wanderings that lasted almost two years. This spiritual quest, emulated by millions since, took him from Venice to Rome, to Naples and Sicily.

It is following in the footsteps of this legendary German poet, that photographer, Italian native (sorry… Neapolitan), and travel aficionado, Enrico Della Pietra, using his photographs, will have you virtually travel the country to guide you through Goethe's travels and help you prepare to capture the best of Italy through your own lenses on your next trip. Learn tips on how best to approach this country, cameras or iPhones in hand!
