This slight sketch depicts Florence from the southern bank of the Arno to the west of Ponte alla Carraia and the city centre. Turner’s viewpoint appears to be a location on the Lungarno between the weir, Pescaia di Santa Rosa and present-day Ponte Amerigo Vespucci (built during the twentieth century).1 The vista looks up-river and silhouetted on the opposite bank are, from left to right, the small dome of San Lorenzo, the large dome and campanile of the Duomo, and the tower of Palazzo Vecchio.
Not as Cecilia Powell has previously has suggested the Cascine which is further west on the opposite bank. Powell 1987, p.205 note 26.
