The article considers how Giovanni (John) Ruffini’s most popular novel, Doctor Antonio (1855), and later article, Sanremo Revisited (1865), re-work and “re-write” Dickens’s depiction of Liguria in Pictures from Italy (1846). In particular, it investigates to what extent these fictional representations succeeded in renewing the popular genre of the travel book and the image of Italy in the nineteenth century.
