This excerpt from Viaggio in Italia depicts the brief existence of FerdinandÂ’s Island. Sprung from the sea in July of 1831, it became instantaneously the target object of the ruling 'Powers', and was thus forced soon after to return to its origins. As it was born, so the island vanished in one single day between the waves of the Mediterranean.
