In 1870, August Hare published Walks in Rome, an immensely popular guidebook enriched with a wealth of literary quotations. City of the Soul similarly provides an itinerary through visual and literary Rome, allowing visitors to take a virtual walk through the city. An interactive map, based on a digital version of Paul-Marie Letarouilly’s 1841 plan of Rome, permits visitors to the exhibition to contextualize a selection of the works on display in City of the Soul.
