"When the first part of my work on the island of Sardinia was published in Paris in 1826, I was undecided on the most suitable title for a long time, and I only accepted ‘Viaggio’ (Journey) for pure affability towards my publisher. The volumes came out with this name that preceded those which I publish today. […] The libraries teem with books which, having the same title “Journeys”, often take up a single section, which is very restricted in certain cases. […] Therefore I had no reason to reject a similar title more than thirty years ago with reference to a European and Italian island which was little known at the time. But if it was like that at the time of the first edition of my journey in Sardinia, the time that has passed since then has seen many changes take place in this region, with the works of the steamers and underwater electrical telegraphy later on. For this reason, today this island indeed becomes so close to being a continent that an excursion in this land could no longer be classed as a real ‘journey’, without exaggerating or abusing the term".  

(From Alberto Ferrero Della Marmora, Itinéraire de l’île de Sardaigne pour faire suite au voyage en cette contrée, Torino, Frères Bocca, 1860, 2 vol.)
