    Buongiorno, Marco. Si possono condividere in rete le immagini?

    Mi piacerebbe anche inviarti la foto di uno studio che ho fatto su un acquerello di Lear qualche anno fa; forse ricordi che avevamo avuto uno scambio di email perché cercavo di risalire alla località esatta raffigurata nel quadro. Era un acquerello laziale del 1842.

    Grazie! Raffaele Ciccaleni
