The Mausoleum of Augustus (Italian: Mausoleo di Augusto) is a large tomb built by the Roman Emperor Augustus in 28 BC on the Campus Martius in Rome, Italy. The mausoleum is located on the Piazza Augusto Imperatore, near the corner with Via di Ripetta as it runs along the Tiber. The grounds cover an area equivalent to a few city blocks, and nestle between the church of San Carlo al Corso and the Museum of the Ara Pacis. The mausoleum is currently in the process of a restoration with a prospective completion date of April 2019, upon which it will open to the public.
Aloisio Giovannoli (Italian; ; c. 1550 - 1618)
Printmaker and miniaturist worked in Rome. Made prints depicting ancient Rome, costumes and masks.
His work seems to be very rare. The British Museum holds a series of his masks.
During renaissance the appreciation for the antiques gained focus. Prints by Hieronymous Cock Battista Pittoni and Du Pérac offered a stunning view of how the Roman monuments looked like in the 16th century.
The prints by Aloisio Giovannoli (1550-1618) are nice additions in this field and rare to be found.
Here a print in early impression and nice plate tone, signed bottom left ALO GIO, most likely from his series 'Vedute degli antichi vestigj di Roma' published in 1616.
Full plate border and margins. Tread margin at right + added paper strip. Slightly water stained bottom left corner.
