Comment
The series, consisting of eight prints and dedicated to Giovanni Pietro Bellori, reproduces the now lost frescoes by Polidoro da Caravaggio and Maturino da Firenze on the facade of the Palazzo Gaddi, Rome. Pierluigi Leone De Castris identified the subject as the mythical migration of the Etruscans to Italy, see Pierluigi Leone de Castris, Polidoro da Caravaggio, L'opera completa, Salerno 2001, p. 498, no. 19. The title of the series comes from De Rossi's Cataloge of 1735.
