"Louis Leopold Robert. Copy by Lemee. Festival of the Madonna Dell'Arco, Naples. 72 x 46. On whit-monday, all Naples puts on its holiday clothes and repairs to the church of the Madonna Dell'Arco, seven miles to the eastward at the foot of Mt. Somma. the whole intervening distance is one continuous scene of dancing and merry-making - men and women crowned with wreaths of flowers or fruits, and carrying garlands or poles surmounted with branches of fruit or flowers. It is a perfect bacchanalian procession; and it is pointed to as indicating unmistakably the Greek origin of this festival loving people."
