The picturesque Umbrian town of Spoleto lies thirteen miles from Foligno, approximately half-way on the nineteenth-century route between Ancona and Rome. This sketch represents a very swift study of the Rocca Albornoziana and the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta from the valley to the north-east of the Ponte delle Torri. The tall arches of the medieval aqueduct can just be seen on the left-hand side. The view looks along the course of the River Tessino towards the ruined Roman bridge, the Ponte Sanguinario. A similar view can be found on folio 42 verso (D14735).
