Letter to Robert Brand


  • Manlio Rossi-Doria


In this letter, Rossi-Doria summarises the stages of his journey and expresses a general judgment of his experience. He is convinced that American agriculture has peculiar characteristics and can hardly constitute a model for Italy. Cultural exchanges are held essential to promote development, but this should respect timeframes and procedures suitable to the particular local contexts. The process thanks to which, according to Rossi-Doria, American influence can really be effective in modernizing the Italian system, ought to be based on gradualness and mutual understanding.
