Imaginary reconstruction of Campo Marzio, Rome, in a lively scene animated by different figures with rich architecture on three sides.
Giuseppe Galli da Bibbiena (1696-1756), of the well-known family of Italian architects, painters, and set designers, Ferdinando’s son, created sets, layouts, and decorations for parties, especially for the imperial court of Vienna, of which he was appointed “first theatre engineer” in 1727. He left a very rich collection of drawings and engravings.
