So, here it is. The first path. And it is just that, a path. Through the past. Through Bordeaux. Or through Europe.
Europe, which is above all about people. Those who have come, and those who have gone. Those who have left, either voluntarily or involuntarily. Those who received a poor welcome. Those who “actually” came, and those who came only in the form of “works.” And others, too, who remained.
It is simply a stroll, one of many. It can be taken in several ways, and I invite you to do as you please. Those devoted to a Europe of the Nations might seek a national reading. They will no doubt look for Italy and Bernini, the Marquis of Mantua, Cagliostro, Garibaldi and Manzù. Germanists will walk in the footsteps of Hölderlin, Schopenhauer, Liszt and Wagner. Anglophiles will want a glimpse of John Locke, Arthur Young and Richard Rogers among others. And Austrians will want to commemorate Emperor Joseph II. Hispanics will turn to Thérésa Cabarrus, Goya and the afrancesados, while music lovers will no doubt prefer heading for Pierre Rode, Liszt and Wagner. Art lovers will maybe limit themselves to the legacy of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the 18th century, and Romanticism, or the traces of Bernini, Goya, Visconti and Manzù.
Those fond of history’s wounds might turn their attention to antiquity, the Italian Wars, the French Revolution and the Second Empire.
