As a result of a travel experience in Russia in 1739, Viaggi di Russia by Francesco Algarotti, published in its final version in 1764, represents a text of certain interest in the panorama of studies related to travel literature and its dynamics.

Abstract

As a result of a travel experience in Russia in 1739, Viaggi di Russia by Francesco Algarotti, published in its final version in 1764, represents a text of certain interest in the panorama of studies related to travel literature and its dynamics. The genre of travel reportage, much frequented by twentieth-century Italian writers after the encounter between literature and journalism on the Third page of Italian newspapers, finds in Algarotti a sure antecedent: despite the clear literary intent of the writing back from St. Petersburg, in the reportage we can find elements of interest also in relation to the travel reports of twentieth-century writers-journalists.
