A panoramic view of the city of Piacenza, in the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy. The scene depicts a group of poorly dressed figures gathered in a clearing in the foreground, with a number of buildings in the distance and to the right. Piacenza is at the confluence of the major waterways of nothern Italy, the Trebbia, draining the northern Apennines, and the Po, draining to the east. This has always made the city vital to the interest of the political and militay powers looking to control the region. After Philipe Benoist (1813-1880), with titles in French and Italian.
