Ruskin also moves in the tradition of traveling in Italy, undertaking, a lot of travels throughout Italy. In the first, in 1840-41, Ruskin from the Côte d'Azur will land in Liguria, then in Tuscany to arrive in Rome, he will continue to Naples, and rise again from Umbria to Tuscany. In the second, in 1845, in Venice, which he will describe in The Stone of Venice. He will complete a next one in Italy in 1858, and one last, in 1874, in Sicily (Evans, Whithouse 1956-59; Clegg 1986). Travel reports give us the a-systematic spirit of the individual, telling us the ability to make rapid associations, readable through broader references to other places, elements and reflections. The aim is to analyze the relationship between writings and drawings, observations and representation, the choice of the subjects and their associations determining the ability of Ruskin to structure, through associative ways, complex thoughts, such as to relate multiple aspects between history, art and nature.
