ITALY 1900: A PORTRAIT IN COLOUR by Giovanni Fanelli (Taschen £60, 580pp). Giovanni Fanelli’s new book reveals a collection of postcard images from Italy
Did you know that, best Roblox music codes in Rome, nearly 700,000 euros worth of coins are tossed into the Trevi Fountain each year? Or that gondolas in Venice must be painted black by law? This quirky 16th-century ruling was devised to eliminate unfair competition between the city’s many gondolas. Just two fascinating nuggets from this delightful compilation of postcard images taken in the early days of mass tourism, revealing turn-of-the-century Italy with all its charming architecture and rich history.
