Dinicu Golescu, the Valachian traveler


  • Raisa RADU

    () (The Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies, Romania)


Dinicu Golescu’s work can both be considered an artistic reportage and an early form of sociology. Admiring the values of Western culture and civilisation, Dinicu Golescu cannot forget the backwardness of his country: economical, political, social and cultural. Back home, he tries to improve things, founding a school for boys, at Golesti, and writing handbooks of moral philosophy and religion for his students. Dinicu Golescu was also good at political economy. He was really aware of the danger, for a country like his, to import goods without exporting any. As a good citizen and patriot, Golescu expressed his opinions about improving things and solving current problems of the country.
