In her book, Albrecht Diirer, "Viaggio nei Paesi Bassi," Adalgisa Lugli presented the artist's narrative as an essay about travelling, drawing, and writing, and on the interconnectedness of all these activities-a "journey made so that vestiges would remain," as she writes, Indeed, Diirer himself made a scrupulous record of the everyday episodes in his voyage, from the banal to the remarkable and always with a measured sobriety, from the tip he gave a guard so that he might inspect a retablo to the spec- tacular procession of the Church of Our Savior in Antwerp on August 19, 1520.

*In 1995 the late Adalgisa Lugli published an Italian translation of Albrecht Diirer's description of his journey through the Low Countries in 1520-21, i.e., Albrecht Dourer, Viag- gio nei Paesi Bassi. The text below, in English translation and with editorial adjustments, is taken from pp. 7, 8, 13, 14, and 45-49 of Lugli's introduction, and is reprinted here with the kind permission of the publisher, Utet, Turin. Although included in the original program, Lugli was unable to be present at "Signs of the Times: Culture and the Emblems of the Apoca- lypse," although the theme of her proposed paper-the Apocalypse of Albrecht Durer-was central to the topic. In deference to her pioneering research on the Apocalyptic symbology of the Renaissance and her constant support of the conference and its proceedings, we have decided to include this extract from Lugli's essay. We would like to thank Claudio Parmiggiani for his sanction of this gesture and Nicoletta Misler for her preamble.
