    An attempt to review all of Italy s history, from Roman times to the year 2000 Given that the book is about 130 pages, it really has to skip pretty much everything Privitera tries to focus on a few notable rulers leaders, and artists, but can be difficult to follow, sometimes mentioning key figures and places that he hasn t previously described For an illustrated history , there is a severe lack of maps in particular.In short, this could potentially be a book to get an extremely brief overv An attempt to review all of Italy s history, from Roman times to the year 2000 Given that the book is about 130 pages, it really has to skip pretty much everything Privitera tries to focus on a few notable rulers leaders, and artists, but can be difficult to follow, sometimes mentioning key figures and places that he hasn t previously described For an illustrated history , there is a severe lack of maps in particular.In short, this could potentially be a book to get an extremely brief overview of Italian history, but there are certainly better sources out there

    This book reads as though it was written from memory at speed in a couple of days In a book this short, there obviously have to be omissions but some are odd and random why mention that Garibaldi missed the 600th anniversary celebrations of the Sicilian Vespers if that is your only mention of the Sicilian Vespers Illustrations are all black and white and pretty poor quality at that Oddly, there is a picture of Cellini s bust of Cosimo I to illustrate the story of his great great great unc This book reads as though it was written from memory at speed in a couple of days In a book this short, there obviously have to be omissions but some are odd and random why mention that Garibaldi missed the 600th anniversary celebrations of the Sicilian Vespers if that is your only mention of the Sicilian Vespers Illustrations are all black and white and pretty poor quality at that Oddly, there is a picture of Cellini s bust of Cosimo I to illustrate the story of his great great great uncle Cosimo, pater patriae, yet Cosimo I himself never rates a mention in the text Does the editor not know they are different people I ll blame the editor because I can t believe that the author doesn t know that The book is at its best when discussing the Risorgimento and 20th century, but even that is odd, as he discusses the careers of Mazzini, Garibaldi and Cavour separately, in that order, which means that I was left scratching my head when Cavour turns up in Garibaldi s career No doubt, this is because the Risorgimento is the period I know least about I suspect that if I didn t already know a fair bit about the rest of Italian history I would have been scratching my head earlier andoften His account of Mussolini s career is very good There are times when the discussion is telegraphic to the point of hilarity During this period, the Jesuits made themselves odious not only in Italy, but in France and Spain as well Pope Clement XIV finally suppressed the Jesuits altogether in 1773 So much for the odious Jesuits
