Scena Romana della Farmacia

Life-size scenes representing aspects of popular life in Rome in the early nineteenth century, the Roman Scenes were created between 1930 and 1952, inspired by the works of Bartolomeo Pinelli (Rome 1781-1835). They show a chemist’s, the carriage house of a wine cart, the courtyard of an inn where the saltarello is being danced, the interior of an inn, a piazza with the public scribe and two pipers in front of a votive kiosk.
