Summary expansion
The guide provides the classical and modern names for temples and important streets, details of the 10-month calendar, notes on key festivals, and descriptions of celebrated military triumphs and significant public statuary. The life of Alexander the Great at the end is the framework for further celebration of the glory of Italy rather than an accurate biography, as it contains many scenes of Rome and the military triumphs of her great military commander Julius Caesar. The publisher, Baldassare Faentino, specialized in plaquettes like this, which were almost certainly sold by traveling peddlars. BM STC lists two others printed for Faentino: Orfeo by Piers Francesco (Florence, 1545?); and Opera noua nella quale ritrouerai molti secreti (Florence, 1546)
