Alessandro Manzoni was born in Milan on March 7, 1785. His linguistic uniqueness reached its highest with the famous work “I Promessi Sposi” (The Betrothed), published between 1825 and 1827 CE, laying the foundations of a new romance style in Italy. Throughout this thematic walk, we’ll discover the story of a young love between Renzo and Lucia. The adventure is narrated in the historical period between 1628 and 1630 CE. This itinerary aims to explore the city through a Manzonian lens and rediscover places and backgrounds closely connected with the most widely read novel among Italian classics.
