About La Catrina at Capitol Square Postcard

Here we see La Catrina in her architecture-inspired hat at the Piazza del Campidoglio (Capitol Square) in Rome. This was the first square to be built following Michelangelo’s criteria of a uniform design. He was commissioned in 1536 by Pope Paul III to do the square, for the visit of the Spanish Emperor Charles V. The statue in the center is of Marcus Aurelius, to the left is the Palazzo Nuovo built by the Rinaldi brothers in the seventeenth century. The main building houses the city's Municipal Council, and its main trait is the huge widestep staircase (also designed by Michelangelo) that enabled the knights at the time to walk up unencumbered in their suits of metal armour.

Material

This postcard is from around the 1970's. All cards mounted on white 250 g/m² paper with trimmed edges. Vintage postcard, collaged and overpainted with acrylic paint, 10.2 x 14.5 cm, no frame. Signed and dated in pencil on back. This can be easily erased in the event you want to use the card.

Please note that since these are antique postcards, some might contain small tears, pinholes and/or scratches. Fleshy tries her best to lovingly craft each card, but sometimes a tear might be too close to the overall subject to cut it out. The actual colors might differ slightly from your monitor.

Every postcard is a small, unique work of art!

Delivery throughout Europe and overseas is with normal postal mail in cardboard envelopes so nothing should bend. Postage and packaging are calculated at checkout.
