When Charles de Brosses, a judge and writer from Dijon, goes to Italy in 1739-1740, he hopes to find History of the Roman Republic, a legendary text written by Salluste, in the first century B.C. but lost since antiquity. His collection will not bear fruit, but in the letters he writes to his friends during his voyage, he gives us the most living portrait of the Italy of his time. Curious about everything, he doesn't omit going to Venice and seeing for himself how the ''nation is crazy'' about music: There are hardly no evenings without an academy somewhere; people rush…to listen with as much enthusiasm as if it were the first time. Here, there is a kind of music that does not exist in France…Long concertos without solo violin.
