Comment on 17.1.-14.2.1797
Thorvaldsen has not accounted for Tuesday 31.1.1797. The trip from Palermo to Naples may have lasted one more day since Thorvaldsen here seems quite certain of the date.
However, as he did not write in the diary every day, and as he also dates the next day 1.2.1797 below, the most likely explanation seems to be that he has missed a day, and that his arrival in Naples is to be dated 31.1.1797.
