About This Item

Hand-coloured lithograph panorama measuring [16 x 335 cm], including a title, portrait and 30 costumes; folding out of covers measuring 172 x 115 mm.]; folding down into original red pattern paper boards [ 17.2 x 11.5 cm.], slightly worn on joints

Produced as a souvenir for visitors to Rome the panorama depicts the bewildering variety of colourful costumes that were still being worn by the Papal Court. The only flamboyant costume to survive today is the familiar one worn by the Swiss Guard, although variants of other costumes used by the clergy in the panorama do survive but in a much reduced modest form.

The panels that follow each other depict a costume of a member of the Papal Court, beginning with he Pope himself: They are entitled: 'Pio IX P.O.M.'; 'S.P. in Dedia Gestatoria'; 'S.P. in Abrito Pontificale'; 'S.P. in Abrito Di Udienza'; 'S.P. in Mozzetta e Stola'; 'S.P. in Abito Privato'; 'Cardinale Diacono'; 'Cardinale no [sibérien] Cappa'; 'Cardinale in Manteletta'; 'Cardinale in Privato'; 'Vescovo Greco'; 'Vescovo Siro'; 'Vescovo Armeno'; 'Prelato', 'Crocifero'; 'Bussolante Contriregno'; 'Cammeriere Secreto con Flabello'; 'Senatore'; 'Cameriere Segreto'; 'Mazziere'; 'Gentilomo de Cardinale'; 'Sediaro'; 'Guardia Nobile'; 'Vesillifero di s. Chiesa'; 'Capitano Svizzero'; 'Sargente Svizzero'; 'Svizzero con Corazza'; 'Svizzero con Corazza'; 'Soldato Svizzero'; 'Svizzero del S. Monte di Pieta'; 'Tamburro Svizzero'
