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. His etchings and certainly his series of Roman Ruins are very rare. He made only two series of prints. The British Museum holds his series of masks but not this series of Roman Ruins. Early and important but almost impossible to find.
Full plate border and margins all around. Good condition.
Trajan's Column (Italian: Colonna Traiana, Latin: COLVMNA·TRAIANI) is a Roman triumphal column in Rome, Italy, that commemorates Roman emperor Trajan's victory in the Dacian Wars. It was probably constructed under the supervision of the architect Apollodorus of Damascus at the order of the Roman Senate. It is located in Trajan's Forum, built near the Quirinal Hill, north of the Roman Forum. Completed in AD 113, the freestanding column is most famous for its spiral bas relief, which artistically describes the epic wars between the Romans and Dacians (101–102 and 105–106). Its design has inspired numerous victory columns, both ancient and modern.
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.
