  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Campagna  \Cam*pa"gna\,  n.  [It.  See  {Campaing}.] 
  An  open  level  tract  of  country;  especially  ``Campagna  di 
  Roma.''  The  extensive  undulating  plain  which  surrounds  Rome. 
 
  Note:  Its  length  is  commonly  stated  to  be  about  ninety  miles, 
  and  its  breadth  from  twenty-seven  to  forty  miles.  The 
  ground  is  almost  entirely  volcanic,  and  vapors  which 
  arise  from  the  district  produce  malaria.
