Chapter 1 considers three texts revolving around the events of the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05, first examining the diary/novel of Italian-born Daniele Pecorini, who travelled in Korea and Japan as British Commissioner of the Imperial Maritime Customs Service, before turning to a compilation of Luigi Barzini Sr.’s dispatches from Manchuria and Tokyo written for Corriere della Sera, Italy’s premier newspaper. Finally, a third section of this chapter delves into the travel account by the “Baronessa di Villaurea,” who visited Japan after the end of the hostilities. The reading of the baronessa’s travelogue introduces the perspective of gender and social class to the chapter.
