Caffi was from Belluno, a city to the north of Venice. Like many of the tourists who made their way to Italy, he traveled extensively around the country and beyond, visiting Greece, Syria, Turkey and Egypt. Each place he visited was depicted with the same respect and sense of wonder. In the present painting, the majesty of Piazza San Pietro afforded Caffi the perfect setting to create an impressive stage which he populates with spirited but small and economically rendered figures which are dwarfed by their surroundings. The warm light which bathes the sky and the buildings is typical of his work and captures the glory of the city.
