Italy - Barbanera Almanac of 1762
It is the first to be called "Barbanera" and, of the almanacs published between the 17th and 20th centuries, it is the only one to have been distributed on a national and international level over the years. It has exercised a practical, instructive and moral influence on daily life and has represented the minor history of the peninsula and recorded rites, traditions and values. It became the almanac par excellence of the 19th and 20th centuries influencing the whole country and beyond.
