Ente Geografico Italiano

Ente Geografico Italiano was the publication for the Società Geografica Italiana, which was formed in 1867 in Florence. In 1872, the geographic society moved to Rome, and as of 1924, it operated from headquarters in Villa Mattei in the Celiorione of Rome. The society began publishing a journal in 1868 and also sponsored scientific expeditions, such as one to Ethiopia in 1876, led by Orazio Antinori. During WW2, the society was directed by Corrado Soli, an Italian writer, diplomat, and explorer born in Palermo, who functioned as the colonial governor of Italian Eritrea from 1928 to 1930.
