Piazza and the Palazzo Quirinale Montecavallo said. Beautiful copper engraving of 1690 approximately. Measurement of the plate 17 cm x 29. Represents the Square and the Quirinale Palace, seat of the Presidency of the Italian Republic, in Rome. In good condition, written in ink in ink on the bottom edge, printed on laid paper with watermark double circle and lily. Engraved by Giovanni Battista Falda (Valduggia, December 7, 1643 - Rome, August 22, 1678) was an Italian engraver, who documented the architecture and urbanism in Rome in the second half of the seventeenth century. At age 14 he was sent to Rome at an uncle who reported him to Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Much more important, however, was, in the formation and subsequent activities of young Falda, meeting with Giovan Giacomo De Rossi and his printing apprenticeship completed soon. De Rossi from the Falda acquired education "urban" and craft, and with his mentor worked virtually throughout his short life.
