Old Italian Newspaper - Roma Antica Colosseo, 1887
About the Artwork
First published in the 1870s and 1880s, as supplements to the Palermo periodical Il Cine Marzano VII, these front pages feature engravings by Carlo Barberis depicting iconic scenes of Florence, Rome, Milan, Naples, and Venice. Originally, they were intended to stir patriotism and promote tourism in a recently unified Italy. Today, our reproductions serve as windows on history and tributes to great architecture.
