This is a scarce 1756 map of Italy by Robert de Vaugondy. It covers from Switzerland south to include all of Sicily. Sardinia and Corsica are also included. The map renders the entire region in extraordinary detail offering both topographical and political information. Various postal routes are noted throughout including towns and cities along the routes.

This map shows the Italian peninsula prior to its struggle for national solidarity which would emerge as a movement about 50 years later in the early 19th century. The peninsula is divided into numerous independent states, duchies, republics, kingdoms and, of course, the Papal States (States of the Church).

A beautifully engraved title cartouche in included in the top right quadrant. The map was drawn by Robert de Vaugondy in 1756 and published in the 1757 issue of his Atlas Universal. The Atlas Universal was one of the first atlases based upon actual surveys. Therefore, this map is highly accurate (for the period) and has most contemporary town names correct.
