Domenico Enegildo Frediani (1783-1823) is that kind of forgotten travellers whose death is shrouded in the mystery of a foreign country, cursed with madness and destruction of his literary work. Even though the documentation amassed by Arturo Wolynski in 1891 is quite huge a total of seventy-six pages still much is unknown about this early Tuscan traveller. Since the publication of this first, and only, essay on his life, more documents that could shed new light on his African explorations and on his death have been uncovered.
