These State-supported schools provided very high standards of education, and the Ospedale della Piet`a’s musical performances were much appreciated and justly renowned (Blom, 1966). Indeed, interest in disadvantaged children accelerated during the eighteenth century, a time when rational enquiry of all kinds proceeded apace. 5 Shocked by the common sight of infants exposed and dying in the streets of London, he agitated for the creation of a foundling hospital, and laboured for 17 years to that end.

The baby was not planned or wanted and the mother resented breaking her career. The authors did not make any distinction between these two infants and mothers. It is clear, however, that both babies were undernourished and failed to thrive: one presumably because of feeding difficulties and maternal grief; and the second because of rejection and inadequate provision of food. Fischhoff et al. (1971) conducted a study of 12 mothers of 3- to 24-month-old infants. Their findings were based on two interviews with the mothers, brief contacts on the wards, social-work reports, unstructured interviews with the fathers, and reported observations by paediatricians and nurses.

In his distress the boy, who knows he is going to be severely punished for it, does not even notice the ragged girl helping herself to the food on the ground. Institutions for the care of ‘foundlings’ (children, usually illegitimate, who were abandoned) have a long history. There were ‘foundling hospitals’ in numerous European cities, and these have been documented. As early as the seventh and eighth centuries there were such establishments in Trier on the Mosel (Augusta Treverorum, the oldest town in Germany), Milan, and Montpellier (to name but three such), and in the fourteenth century a famous foundling hospital was created in Venice.
