GUIDOTTI, Mirella. The construction of the look: Goethe's Italian Journey. Pandaemonium ger. [online]. 2012, vol.15, n.19, pp. 122-136. ISSN 1982-8837. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1982-88372012000100007.
This article investigates Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's Italian Journey, published in 1816-1817, which reports his travels through the Italian peninsula from 1786 to 1788. More than a reconstruction of his traveling through memories and diaries, the Journey stands out as a narrative of a different look towards a piece of art, as a construction of Goethe's aesthetics.
