"(Ital.) Rome. The Roman campagna. 35 x 19. The campagna is the country lying between the sabine hills and the sea. The lakes, which are numerous, are the craters of extinct volcanoes. the ruined arches in the distance are portions of the Claudian aqueduct, built by the Emperor Claudius (A.D. 50.], and running to the mountains on the east, a distance of fifty-eight and one- half miles. The peculiar atmospheric effects of the campagna are fairly rendered in these pictures."
