This page contains two sketches of Molina, a small town named after its water mills (mulino), which lies in the valley (Valle Bonea) north of Vietri sul Mare on the inland road between Naples and Salerno. The subject of the main sketch is the vista looking towards Cava de’ Tirreni from the eastern end of the Ponte del Diavolo, an aqueduct which spanned the width of the valley until it was destroyed by a flood in 1954. The smaller study in the top right-hand corner represents the view looking in the opposite direction, south towards Vietri sul Mare and the coast. The dome and bell-tower of San Giovanni Battista are silhouetted against the horizon.
