Naples In the Time of Cholera

Frank Snowden on Naples in the Time of Cholera

The latest episode of our coronavirus crisis podcast features Frank Snowden. Frank is Andrew Downey Orrick Professor Emeritus of History & History of Medicine at Yale University and the author of, among many other books, Naples in the Time of Cholera. We spoke with him about the great epidemics that struck Italy’s then-largest city at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries and what comparisons — if any — can be drawn to our situation today.
