A Sentimental Journey Through Carrara by Marzia Dati


Charles Dickens describes Carrara in Pictures from Italy (1846), his well-known travelogue about his stay in Italy, and in his letters to his friend and biographer John Forster (1812-1876). Carrara was not a destination of the Grand Tour, however its mountains, which enshrine the precious white marble, struck any visitors travelling by land or by sea, on their way to from Genoa to Rome. Due to their solemnity and impressiveness, they instilled a kind of dismay and astonishment blended with admiration and terror, those states of mind which cause the sublime, as the philosopher Edmund Burke theorized in A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of Our Ideas of the Sublime and Powerful (1757), which inspired most Romantic English Poets.
