Souvenir d’Italie is the title of the image-document here presented: an album at Nazional Museum Alinari of Photography, dated 1871, and composed by 56 photos, that ideally realized a classic itinerary by foreign visitors in Italy. We try to analyze it comparing with other albums of the same kind, with the catalogues of the most important photographs of that time, and also with coeval sources of different type, as guides for visitors, or magazines as Le Tour Du Monde. The latter was an illustrated review the offered to its reader the opportunity of virtual travel in many parts of the world, in Italy too.
