"(Ital.) Rome. Roman carnival. 29 x 39. The scene of the carnival is the Corso, one of the main streets of Rome. The crowd amuses itself by all manner of tricks and antics. Tiny parcels of candies and flour, or of fine gravel and lime are thrown at by the moving throng. Fantastic dresses are worn. riderless unbridled horses run races down the corso. On the last night, every body's chief object is to put out everybody else's light."
