This essay focuses on the reception Walter Pater's The Renaissance had in Italy in the period between the fin de siècle - when the novelty of Pater's aesthetic gospel reached the country through decadent writers such as Angelo Conti and Gabriele d'Annunzio - and the cultural watershed of World War II. In the fifty years between 1894 and 1944 Pater played a major role in Italian art criticism and aesthetic thought, thanks to a process of diffusion pivoting on Aldo de Rinaldis's translation of The Renaissance in 1912.

Abstract

This essay focuses on the reception Walter Pater's The Renaissance had in Italy in the period between the fin de siècle - when the novelty of Pater's aesthetic gospel reached the country through decadent writers such as Angelo Conti and Gabriele d'Annunzio - and the cultural watershed of World War II. In the fifty years between 1894 and 1944 Pater played a major role in Italian art criticism and aesthetic thought, thanks to a process of diffusion pivoting on Aldo de Rinaldis's translation of The Renaissance in 1912.
