Victoria & Verdi: Two National Icons
Queen Victoria and Giuseppe Verdi had much in common: Victoria learned Italian and loved music and opera, while Verdi cared deeply about the politics of Italian unification. Drawing on a rich multiplicity of images, Daniel Snowman examines the changing iconography of the two Vs against the background of their wider national cultural history.
