THE LETTERS OF CAVOUR’S ESTATE MANAGER
Giovanni Silengo 1847/1852 – anastatic ed. 1979 text – Euro 25.00
These are the 310 letters – published here for the first time – that Giovanni Bosco, the manager of Casa Cavour’s Grinzane d’Alba estate from 1845 to 1853, wrote to the owner’s secretary Carlo Rinaldi. The author supervised the tenant families and kept the Count’s books relating to each unit on the estate, so the letters provide an insight into the economic and social circumstances of a sizeable rural business, and the character of “certain events, the human aspect of some situations”.
