The voyage was meant to round out one?s education, with an emphasis on Classical arts and architecture, languages, history, literature, and philosophy. Grand Tourists bought souvenir buildings or ruins in bronze, alabaster, and marble ? ?objet d?art? created by Italian craftspeople - as keepsakes of their travels. These souvenirs celebrate the Classical world, while also referencing the cultural phenomenon that was the Grand Tour.
