Pater first toured Italy in 1865 with Charles Lancelot Shadwell, to whom he later dedicated Studies in the History of the Renaissance (1873). As Michael Levey states in The Case of Walter Pater, the tour was the well-spring for most of the essays in The Renaissance. This essay examines Pater criticism in Italy and focuses on the present decade. It is largely a review of a collection of essays from a conference held in Venice in 1994. Pater critics in Italy today desire to transcend the "hegemonic" notion of Pater as "the father of English decadence" that Mario Praz held during the first half of the century. **********
