    From April 1 to July 30, 2017, the Saarlandmuseum – Alte Sammlung and the Museum für Vor- und Frühgeschichte were jointly presenting an exhibition dedicated to an important cultural-historical phenomenon in Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries: the “Grand Tour”. This term stands for study trips, which at that time were considered part of the general education of the aristocratic upper class, and led to Rome as well as to the ancient ruins on the Gulf of Naples and in Sicily.

    The book was designed by Studio RBƒK using Korpus Grotesk and an unidentified italic [Garamond Premier, see comments]. It was edited by Roland Mönig, Thomas Martin and Stefan Heinlein and published by Stiftung Saarländischer Kulturbesitz.
