Robert Wimmer, who was a student of Gottfried Semper and later became the city architect of Chemnitz, travelled in Italy several times between 1846 and 1858, completing a Grand Tour in the truest sense. From Verona he went to Rome via Milan and Perugia, and also visited Fossanova, Naples, Messina and Palermo, returning via Pompeii, Siena and Florence. For some of the way he was in the company of the building historian Oskar Mothes. A 160-page-long album featuring 406 drawings documents his journeys.
