The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Back to 1797


Arrives at Naples.

Primary sources

  • Thorvaldsen’s diary 1797 (Here Thorvaldsen writes that he disembarqued 1.2.1797, but the dating of the diary is wrong. The arrival probably took place the day before, see commentary on the diary).

Other references

  • Thiele I, p. 82-83 (also cites the diary and is therefore a little uncertain about the date: Leaves Palermo on the 28th, reaches Naples in the evening of the following day but goes ashore the next morning 1.2. It is not clear what happened to the 30th and the 31st).
